First put wax dissolving ear drops for about 10 days. Consult an ent surgeon who will remove the wax by syringing. Please do not try to remove the wax on your own. You might push the wax deeper into the ear canal or in the process injury the ear canal or even the ear drum.

Pls see an ENT doctor. Blunt injuries to throat without voice change can happen but nonetheless are does not mean all is fine. A quick endoscopy will tell that there is no Hematoma (blood in the lower part of throat: Hypopharynx).

Hello sir, I have a sinus problem due to which I am not able to breathe properly what can I do sir?

Do you have pain on cheek bones on pressing it? hot fomentation is really helpful in sinus besides drink fluids, such as water or juice. This will help dilute mucous secretions and promote drainage. Avoid beverages that contain caffeine or alcohol, as they can be dehydrating. Drinking alcohol can also worsen the swelling of the lining of the sinuses and nose. Moisturize your sinus cavities. Drape a towel over your head as you breathe in the vapor from a bowl of medium-hot water. Keep the vapor directed toward your face. Or take a hot shower, breathing in the warm, moist air. This will help ease pain and help mucus drain. Apply warm compresses to your face. Place warm, damp towels around your nose, cheeks and eyes to ease facial pain. Rinse out your nasal passages. Use a specially designed squeeze bottle (sinus rinse, others), saline canister or neti pot to rinse your nasal passages. This home remedy, called nasal lavage, can help clear your sinuses. If you make your own rinse, use water that's contaminant-free distilled, sterile, previously boiled and cooled, or filtered using a filter with an absolute pore size of 1 micron or smaller to make up the irrigation solution. Also be sure to rinse the irrigation device after each use with contaminant-free water, and leave open to air-dry. Sleep with your head elevated. This will help your sinuses drain, reducing congestion. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Snoring

MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Mumbai
Snoring is the production of upper airway noise via breathing during sleep.
• Snore- during sleep, the noise produced while breathing through the mouth.
• Snoring is a sound a person makes during sleep when his or her breathing is disrupted.
Aetiology /pathogenesis-
Snoring originates in the parts of the upper airway which have no rigid support to counteract compression from outside or collapse from inside. This narrowing leads to local acceleration and turbulence of the breathed air. This, in turn, causes vibration of the pharyngeal wall.
The structures concerned are-
• Soft palate
• Uvula
• Tonsils
• Base of the tongue
• Pharyngeal muscles and
• Pharyngeal mucosa.
Factors contributing to snoring-
The palate, tongue and pharyngeal muscles play a part in keeping the airway open during the inspiration. If, during the deep sleep phase, and especially during REM sleep, the muscle tone is insufficient, the tongue can fall backward due to gravity, and vibrate against the soft palate, uvula and pharynx. This occurs particularly in the supine position.
Anatomical abnormalities can limit the passage of air in the oropharynx and the hypopharynx. Such abnormalities include-
• Enlarged tonsils and adenoids
• Fatty tissue in the pharynx (due to obesity)
• A relatively large tongue (in the case of retrognathia, micrognathia and acromegaly).
• A narrow nasal passage causes an increase in negative pressure during inspiration, which increases the effect on the flaccid pharyngeal tissue. A particularly long palate and uvula also narrow the nasopharyngeal opening during inspiration. This explains why people who normally do not snore may do so when they have a cold or allergic rhinitis.
• Septal abnormalities, nasal polyps and tumours can also contribute to constriction.
• Hypothyroidism, neurological disorders, alcohol and hypnotics can intensify the overall effect.
Signs and symptoms-
• Unexplained tiredness or sleepiness during the day.
• Disrupted social activities and relationship problems (and even divorce). The snoring noise can sometimes be as loud as 50–70 db, which is similar to the noise of a low-flying jet plane.
• Sometimes, temporarily stopped-breathing (sleep apnoea), which can be very alarming.
Examination-
Very careful examination of the ear, nose and throat area, particularly the tonsils, palate, uvula and tongue is made. Nasal polyps, swollen turbinates, septal deviation, hyper reactive nasal mucosa, and abnormal anatomy of the lower jaw (relatively too small or recessed) is evaluated. Weighing the patient and blood pressure is next step. If hypothyroidism is suspected, the thyroid stimulating hormone level is checked.
Management-
The average snorer is a person more than 40 yrs old. While he inhales or exhales during sleep, the soft palate vibrates noisely. Snoring is usually caused by a condition which hinders breathing such as a cold, an allergy, a nasal polyp, tumor or deviated nasal septum. The cause must be removed to stop snoring. Snoring can also be diminished by reducing weight, stopping smoking and drinking alcohol in evening before sleeping.
Option 1-
If no abnormalities are found on the history or examination, no treatment is required.
Option 2-
If further investigations are found, general measures can be suggested. These include-
• Losing weight if necessary
• Avoiding lying on the back if the snoring is position-dependent and
• As appropriate, discouraging smoking, alcohol consumption and the use of hypnotics.
• Any underlying causes or contributory factors, such as hypothyroidism or allergies are treated.
• Mechanical devices placed in the nose and mouth only reduce snoring to a limited extent.
• If, in the case of habitual snoring, the patient temporarily stops breathing and/or the patient reports that he is sleepy and tired during the day, sleep apnoea syndrome must be considered.
• Snoring can also be cured about 80% by surgery. The operation is called uvulopalato-pharyngoplasty.
Prevention
Attention to weight, smoking, alcohol and hypnotics, and avoiding sleeping on the back are effective preventive measures. Reassurance is sometimes appropriate, particularly if there are groundless fears about sleep apnoea.

I have snoring problem and I can not think what to do so please suggest me some medicine name and home remedies. Please help me and mail me.

MBBS, cc USG
General Physician, Gurgaon
I am giving you some health tips for snoring problem Lifestyle changes to stop snoring Lose weight. If you’re overweight Exercise exercising your arms, legs, and abs, for example, also leads to toning the muscles in your throat, which in turn can lead to less snoring Quit smoking. smoking irritates the membranes in the nose and throat which can block the airways and cause snoring. Avoid alcohol, sleeping pills, and sedatives because they relax the muscles in the throat Establish regular sleep patterns. Create a healthy bedtime ritual with your partner and stick to it Clear nasal passages. If you have a stuffy nose Keep bedroom air moist. Dry air can irritate membranes in the nose and throat, so if swollen nasal tissues are the problem, a humidifier may help. Change your sleeping position. Elevating your head four inches may ease breathing Sleep on your side instead of your back Consult chest Physician for further management

After 24 hours, rinse with your mouth with a solution made of 1/2 teaspoon salt and 8 ounces of warm water. Do not drink from a straw for the first 24 hours. Do not smoke, which can inhibit healing. An ice pack applied to the area will keep swelling to a minimum. Take pain medications as prescribed. The swelling usually subsides after 48 hours. Drink lots of fluid and eat nutritious soft food on the day of the extraction. You can eat normally as soon as you are comfortable. Eat soft foods, such as soup, pudding, yogurt, or applesauce the day after the extraction.

Meniere disease is usually treated symptomatically by giving anti vertigo medicines, vitamins and many times by giving vasodilators. If it is too frequent certain surgical remedies are there but still it has a doubtful outcome.
