Hi my age is 19 year old. I am suffering from allergic bronchitis. Today my pain in left side of head is started. Is it due to flu? How I can cure it?

Hi my age is 19 year old. I am suffering from allergic bronchitis. Today my pain in left side of head is started. Is it due to flu? How I can cure it?

If it has only been one day there is always a good probability for a viral infection (cold) so treating it conservatively is reasonable with over the counter analgesics and cold/flu medicines like Robitussin or Benadryl (diphenhydramine). ...Read more

If you are only taking Levolin and need this daily, you may need to see a physician to discuss adding a maintenance medication of inhaled steroids daily. This may not be a cure but it will keep your symptoms controlled. ...Read more
