Hi doctor,

I am a 23-year-old female. For almost a month, I have been experiencing tightness of the chest, itchiness of the throat, and I feel there is something stuck in my throat. I am currently taking Zykast for the itchiness of the throat. I also have a health history of asthma and allergies.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As you have mentioned, you are worried about your symptoms. Considering your history and previous symptoms, you may be having asthma as well as pharyngitis at present. I would still advise you some investigations to confirm the diagnosis. If you have asthma, I will prescribe you inhalational medication because they are the best possible medication available for the treatment of asthma. Also, I would like to know if there are any factors resulting in an increase in your symptoms.

I hope this helps.

Take care.


Investigations to be done:

X-ray chest PA view,
Spirometry with bronchodilator reversibility testing.

Probable diagnosis:

Bronchial Asthma.

Treatment plan:

(Formoterol 6 mcg + Budesonide 200 mcg) Inhaler with spacer two puffs twice daily and can be taken up to 4 times daily if required.
Continue Zykast.

Preventive measures:

Avoid exposure to allergens and smoking.
Take nutritious diet and adequate rest.

PEFR (peak expiratory flow rate) monitoring.

Regarding follow up:

Follow-up with investigations and then whenever required.
