INFECTION

Dr Bets

Thanks for your quick answer!

I never know whether you are on duty here or not, so its nice you are here today!

My throat and ear are still sore on and off, especially my throat. I forgot to ask him yesterday if my throat was any better. He didnt say anything about. I was still coughing last night and this am, but nothing like I have been! This despite having now taken 3 pulmison, which makes we think my cough was much worse than i thought!

One other question, my gp has given me Celestone-Soluspan inj often before for my bad chest/tjhroat etc. and they have always helped. Why didnt the one his locum gave work this time? Is Pulmison substantially different from Celestone, i.e. I thought they were both cortisone!

Thanks again

Dear Anxious
You have to give the Pulmison more time to work - cortisone usually works slowly. One does not always need to give Celestone ( I only really give it if a patient has a really tight chest)

I forgot to add I have been using my humidifer since April most nights and have made a point of using it every night since I have been sick!

Also, how can I get rid of my blocked ears! I have been using Nasonex, but this doesnt seem to be helping my blocked ears much! I want to get better, have had enough of this. This all started with my sinus problem, which I literally haven' t had for years! (since I had my sinus op its been wonderful - am convinced I would not have got sick if my parents weren' t sick!
