I have asthma and chest congestion, can I still drink cold drinks and jamba juice?

Maybe. Some patient's asthma is very sensitive to cold temperature, such as cold air. Rarely, drinking cold drinks or eating ice cream can even trigger asthma. Most don't. If u wheeze or cough after drinking cold drink, then you better not do it.

A 2 year old is on the second day of off and on fever (100/101). There is chest congestion, occasional cough, not cranky, still active, decreased appetite and is drinking well. I am worried now?

Fever & cough. Fever caused by viral infections can last 3-7 days. Appetite decreases with any infection; that will return when the infection resolves. In the condition he is in now, i would recommend watchful observation. If he becomes lethargic, irritable or if the cough worsens and he stops eating or drinking, have him checked by his pediatrician. Read more...
No. No, it sounds like viral, do symptomatic therapy, give pedialyte for fluids, if baby feels ok, not lethargic, drinks fluids, wets dipers as usual, fever below 104, and still active do not worry, you might still want to bring baby to pediatrician to check and make sure that no prescriptions needed. If fever is below 101 and baby is active and tolerating it let it run. Read more...

I have heavy chest congestion and have been through 2 lots of antibiotics, doc now put me on asthma puffer and prednisolone. Still crook. Pls help?

Still coughing? There are several possibilities. The most likely is that you have mucus dripping from your sinuses down your throat and collecting at your vocal chords. This will lead to a wheezing cough and a sensation of congestion in your upper chest. The treatment is nasal saline, nasal steroids, and anti-histamines. If it is not this, there remain nearly a dozen other possibilities. Read more...
