What can I do to get rid of wheezing and coughing? I've been drinking tea non stop and having coughdrops

See a doctor?: My physician's assistant recently asked me a similar question. She had been through every over the counter treatment- we started antibiotics and she got better quickly. You may need antibiotics too. The only place you can get them is at the doctor. Cough in isolation may be tolerated for a long time as untreatable viral diseases may produce cought but your story sounds like a doc visit is needed! Read more

How do you get rid of wheezing without your proventil (albuterol) inhaler?

Steroid inhaler.: If talking about asthma, steroids used once or twice daily are better for prevention of wheezing. Beta-agonists (proventil) open up airways acutely, and we call them rxcue inhalers. They should not be the only means used. If you have copd, the situation is more serious, and combinations of inhaled steroids with anti-cholinergic medication may be indicated. Read more

How does one get rid of the odor caused by mold (black) which has been in basement for several years to prevent my kid from wheezing?

How does one get rid of the odor caused by mold (black) which has been in basement for several years to prevent my kid from wheezing?

Fix water leaks: Allergic asthma is commonly triggered by mold. The trigger is not the odor but the mold particles in the environment and the best measure to reduce exposure is to eliminate the mold, and reduce chances of regrowth by reducing humidity levels as possible. Mold grows in places where there is excessive humidity and frequent cleaning is not feasible. Allergy to mold is confirmed by skin testing. Read more

Bronchitis. Dr offered albuteral breath treatment even tho I take beta blocker, have rapid hr. I declined. Was I right? Dr said I had a chest wheeze.

Bronchitis. Dr offered albuteral breath treatment even tho I take beta blocker, have rapid hr. I declined. Was I right? Dr said I had a chest wheeze.

You were wrong: In fact if you were on a beta blocker, reconsideration for a selective one should have been made to avoid the bronchospasms created by the nonselective ones. The nonselective bblockers can cause bronchospasm and can be reversed by b-agonists in the lungs. Of course there is some systemic overflow. Once it happens they are hard to reverse, hence we don't use Propranolol challenge anymore. Read more

Did CT chest w/contrast. Radiologist said every looks good w/my lungs. So why am I still coughing, wheezing, and short of breath? No treatment working

Wheezing: Hi JGold, you can still have symptoms with normal imaging. Diseases that fit this are asthma, reflux, atopy, laryngeal dysfunction and bronchspasm. Reflux requires diet changes and medication. Asthma and atopy have very good guidelines for medication and allergy control. Bronchospasm is usually set off by fumes, smoke, allergies, etc. Laryngeal dysfunction can be easily diagnosed. Hope that helps Read more

Pigeons chest - what are chest exercises to get rid of this?

Unfortunately: Exercises have not been shown to help with pigeon chest or pectus carinatum. Bodybuilding can help disguise the shape abnormality but it will not correct this. Besides surgical correction, external bracing can be helpful but has to be done early on a person'd growth. Best of luck. Read more

See answer: Pectins carinatum, or "pigeon chest", occurs in about 1 in 1, 000 teenagers and is more common in males. Most people with pectus anomaly accept and live happily with the shape of their chest. For others, it causes considerable psychological concerns: negative self-image and low self-confidence.
