Abstract

Respiratory tract infection affects the upper to lower part of the respiratory system including the nose to the alveoli of the lungs. There are two types of infections – upper respiratory infections – affecting the sinuses and throat. Upper respiratory tract infections include: common cold, epiglottitis, laryngitis, pharyngitis, and sinusitis. Lower respiratory tract infection – affects the respiratory tract and lungs. In general, lower respiratory tract infections last longer and are more severe. These infections include: Bronchitis, Bronchiolitis, Chest infection, Pneumonia. All age groups are affected by this infection, but children, the elderly, the immune deficient, and those with heart and lung problems are commonly easily infected. Proper observation, antihistamines, antibiotics, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), insulin, chemotherapy, nasal spray, decongestants, inhaled or oral bronchodilators, inhaled steroids, oral anti-leukotrienes, immunotherapy, saline nasal irrigation prescribed depend on condition. A 24-year-old female patient living in Ahmedabad, Gujarat with chief complaints of Suska Kasa (~ Dry Cough), Kanthe raktima (~ Mouth Erythema), Punah-Punaha Vranotpatti (~ Recurrent Ulceration) specially in Sharada ritu and Vasant ritu, kshavathu ( ~sneezing), Nasa strava(~ thin, white discharge) since childhood.
