Hello doctor,

I am having chest pain, bad cough and feeling uneasy with pain in arms for a long. I do not have Aspirin at home. What can be an easily available alternative at this time?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It is better to take care of this cough because coughing for a long time in highly polluted cities may cause pneumonia or tuberculosis.

So I suggest the following medications:

Tablet Hicet (Cetirizine) 0-0-1, Azee 500 (Azithromycin) 1-0-0, Combiflam 1-0-1, syrup Tusq X (if productive cough) 10ml-10ml-10ml or syrup Tusq D (if dry cough) 10ml-10ml-10ml for three days.

If the cough symptoms are not over within five days, please contact me. We may need to do some tests.

Please also follow:

1. Wear a monkey cap covering nose, ears, and mouth while being in cold outdoors.

2. If you smoke, please stop it.

3. Mix some rock salt in a quarter glass of water and gargle it three times a day.

4. Drink only boiled water for the next three days.

5. Avoid sugar containing foods.

6. If possible drink black coffee without sugar which is good for an upper respiratory infection.
