Dear friends,

My mother who has 65 years old has been coughing for almost 6 months. I have taken her to the specialist and he says that she does not have anything. The X rays shows that she is allright, but she continues coughing almost all day the doctor says that maybe it could be an allergy and he told her to use ventide spray(corticosteroid), but the problem is that she is diabetic. She uses the spry every three hours and a cough syrup, but she continues with the cough. It is really a problem because she has a probem with her vagina and every time she coughs her heart and her vagina suffers. Please would you be so kind to give me some advice. She uses candies for the cough and her mouth has been hurted. I am really worried. God bless you.

  • My dear friend, Thank you a lot. You are right I have taken my mom today to the specialist in elder people and she has told me that maybe because of her hypothiroidism or her diabetes her throat is dry and that makes her cough so she has given my mom special medicine for this. Also she has told me that if this continues during one more month we should look for an endoscopy because maybe it is gastritis, so I am going to pray God not to be this and only dry throat. God bless you and thank you for your advice. Regards, Joaquina

  • My Dear friend, Thank you so much for your advice. My mother has dry nose indeed. I took her to the specialist and the doctor told me that she has an allergy, so he has prescribed her an antihistaminic with corticosteroid and a cough syrup. Now she feels better. I pray God she does not cough again.God bless you all. Regards, Joaquina
