Hi doctor,

I am suffering from allergy. I used to have runny nose, cough, difficulty in breathing when allergy increases and also occasional watery itchy eyes. I am not able to eat curd, citrus fruits and I cannot live in cold weather. Usually the allergy will start with sneezing, runny nose and then cough and difficulty in breathing and at last chest congestion. I feel better at noon and in hot weather. I also have eosinophilia. I am taking anti-allergic tablet Levocetirizine daily. Kindly help me.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • It seems that you have seasonal allergies may be due to dust, pollens, pets, etc. So, the best solution is to first find out the cause of allergy and to take preventive measures.
  • Cetirizine can be taken but only for short durations. Gradually stop Cetirizine.
  • You can take homeopathy medicine Kali Bich 30 potency (Kali bichromicum - Potassium dichromate). Take five drops in little water thrice daily. Take this medicine half an hour before meals.
  • You can use mask when you step out from home. Do more physical exercise and morning walk for inner strength and yoga. Follow the instructions and revert back after a month.

After stopping medicine its same again, wakeup every 30-45 minutes at night, not eating properly, lite cough & cold and lite breathing congestion at night.
# Hello
Please continue the same medicine as said but on alternate days for next 15 days.
The respiratory condition will improve and continue with steam at night.
For appetite give him
1 teaspoon of gripe water early morning and one tsp at night.
Give 1 teaspoon of LIV 52 syrup in little water in the evening.
Everything will be managed gradually.
