Take Your Lumps Now: Well, what'd you expect-a new car and a hot date?No matter what physical ailment you have, smoking will not make it any better. So if you have a mild virus or a cold or cough-- you smoke,you suffer more.Three days of inhalational abstinence is not enough,especially if you were a heavy smoker.So for now, just try and not smoke and see how it goes. Later,try to cut down to at least 1/2 pack a day ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
I have a lung infection on meds, prednisone, flovent, ventolin, biaxin (clarithromycin) and nasonex. I have had violent coughs for 3 days my entire back and ribs hurt.
See doctor: I realize that you are already under the care of a doctor and that you may even be treated for whooping cough. If your lung function is in reasonable shape, you should ask your doctor to prescribe you a cough suppressant for a few days. If you have not had a chest x-ray or spiral chest ct, perhaps your doctor may order one since you are not getting better. Any mold or cockroach problem at home? ...Read more
Can I take my salbutamol rescue inhaler more then every 4 hrs? Nasty cough, wheezing and green olive colored sputum for just under 3 days
For my throat, nasal, and cough i take an allergy liquid cap and it seems to help. Had laryngitis fromfrom inhaling smoke from a burn barrel. This ok?
Effect only short!: Good evening, laryngeal irritation from inhaling smoke, especially a large one, is a sort of expected reaction. It is not necessarily an allergic reaction; rather an irritant reaction. As the medications are helping, i would stay with the course. Usually it will get better in a few days. ...Read more

Prescribed albuteol for cough and wheezing , soon noticed a rash and red bumps on body. Stopped inhaler and using benedryl.Rash not going away! 3 days?
Rash, cough & wheeze: Although possible, it's rare to get a rash from albuterol. Have your physician diagnose it; i believe it's not related to the inhaler. Taking Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can worsen the cough and wheezing as well. So i advise you to resume the inhaler immediately in addition to starting a steroid inhaler 2x a day to prevent worsening of your condition. ...Read more

More sensitive.: It could be that your lungs are more sensitive due to the cessation of smoking and they've opened up more, this letting in particles that trigger a response. It also could be that you've developed allergies to air particles, etc.. Your reflux and anxiety might also contribute. If it gets worse, see your doctor for allergy testing, but also stay off smoking as this is a good step. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Throat red and raw 3 days after hysterectomy. Can't swallow. When should I see a dr? I'm taking oxy and Tylenol (acetaminophen) but nothing jelps.
Breathing tube: Most likely during the surgery you had a breathing tube placed while you were asleep. This tube comes in a few forms and could cause some irritation of the throat. Usually this is short lived and some over the counter remedies that you have no described can help. This can predispose you for infection, if it is not getting better I would consider getting an exam or antibiotics to be safe. ...Read more

The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more
