common cold with acute bronchitis

Hi guys,
Every winter I get common cold with similar symptoms (I created a diary of symptoms and medicines I tried for past
3 years).
- day 1 infection starts with throat. I get pains and needles inside everywhere, difficulty in swallowing, dryness.
- day 2 it enters the sinuses. I have pain behind the eyes and temple. Congestion and droppings are green
in color as a start and then it turns yellow. very painful.
- day 4 it enters lungs and I have all symptoms of acute bronchitis. Dry cough. Heavy irritation in the food
pipe and lungs. Progresses to little phlegm. The color of phlegm switches from white watery to thick pale yellow.
Hoarseness, I also lose my voice sometimes.

Medicines I take (potency 30c)
- I start with ferrum phos (for fever) + merc sol. (for throat) + Kali bich (sinus). I will say merc sol has some
effect but not too much. Kali bich is a life saver for my sinuses. Its introduction directly result in an improvement
of sinus pain and congestion.
- When bronchitis sets in I start Kali mur and phosphorus. I take puff (albuterol) to calm down the irritation in lungs.

It takes 10 days for the mucous to disapper from my system. But bronchitis and cough stays with me for like 20-30 days
and I need to depend on the puffs. Irritation in food pipe and loss in voice really hurts.

As you can see that except Kali bichorium I really dont know if I am taking the right meds? Can some one help
me find out better medecines for my symptoms?

Thanks

Many prayers for you.

Thanks a lot Nawaz. I have started the therapy since I ahd Ars Album 200C available.

Today I dont have any congestion in nose but sinuses are very heavy. I have also lost sense of smell and hence the sense of taste. My cough is really bad with green phlegm with very bad and hoarse voice.

Hi, You are welcome. Please continue with the remedy with some patience.

Report progress in a couple of days.

More prayers for your good health.

Hi Nawaz, Unfortunately my condition worsened to the extent that I had to see a doctor here. There was just too much cough with constant urge to clear my throat. And everytime a lot of green sticky phlegm came out. I had sinus pressure with some post nasal droppings (green/yellow). I could not sleep at night. My inhaler worked for like two hours and then non stop cough.
My doc has now given me anti biotic course with ADVAIR to calm things down.
I dont think Ars Album worked.
After 5 days when my allopathic meds are finished can you reccommend something which I can take to get the disease out of my system?

Hi, Sorry to know this. May God bless you. Please come back after 5 days.
