Asthma-shaped bronchitis

Asthma-shaped bronchitis

Question:

- My six year old girl did asthmatic bronchitis at 3 years of age and I have not escaped now so coughing cough that does not end with an antibiotic earlier than 3-4 days (in happy cases), sometimes kept it for a month and did not pass it even with injectable. For 2 years I went with her to Govora and she did treatment in spring and autumn, but when she coughs she returns and is very tormenting day and night for several days. I tried so many teas, for example I do not miss thyme tea, echinacea, antibronsitic tea but only give it after 3 days of cefalexin. And another question: at 29 I feel very stressed, tired of working all day, at work and at home I am always told that I am a thinker. What treatment could I take without going to a specialist doctor? Thank you for your time and I look forward to your answer to both problems.

Answer:

Dear lady, to start proper treatment, it is necessary to give the girl a further investigation to know if it is asthmatic bronchitis, bronchial asthma or recurrent obstructive bronchitis.

Because you have not presented the cough (spastic, irritant, productive) and what other symptoms accompany it, it is very difficult for me to refer to a diagnosis.
Whatever the diagnosis, it is necessary to reduce the disappearance of respiratory infectious episodes by administering an immunostimulant treatment (for example bronchovaxoma) associated with a complex of vitamins and minerals, as well as to avoid exposure to allergenic substances (fluff, dust, pollen, etc.).

Broncho-Vaxom Children contains half the adult dose.
Regarding your problem you have to perform some blood tests - hemolithogram with leukocyte formula, blood glucose, calcium, sideremia, transaminases, magnesemia, etc. - to see what the deficits are, then we can correct them. I await you with details and the results of the investigations carried out.
