I have an nose blockage everyday when I get up I try clearing but the things keep coming, but after I take bath have breakfast and go to office, things become normal no cough nothing what is the reason that every morning I have to suffer this?
My son is 7 years old, with repeated episodes of throat infections, fever and swollen tonsils. He has been mouth breathing throughout night and at times during day. His catching cold and prone to infections are getting increased. Is there a need to do tonsillectomy? Or should we wait. Ps.he had 5 episodes of fever due to throat infection last year alone. This year he was infected already once. Please suggest what should be done.
Hi doctor, I have a slight pain in my right ear. It feels as if it is blocked .i had also applied soliwax drops once but their was no wax in my ear. I recently had gone to hill station it was fine their but once I came back this problem started again. Pls suggest.
Doctor my left ear is itchy and this liquid and slimy kind of thing forms up frequently. So as it is itchy and slimy I used to clean it with earbuds and sometimes with my baby finger. It is getting worse inside as it gets dirty with mucus frequently and often. It also hurts to touch. So should I go to a doctor to a hospital or can you like suggest me an ear drop or ointment to cure this thing.
I am 18 year old boy. I used to live in Shimla but now I study at Jaipur. Since I shifted here, my nose has bleed at least 7 times till now. And today it bleed twice. Is it a serious matter?
Tonsillitis is a condition, which is characterized by infection of the tonsils in your throat. The tonsils are a pair of lymph nodes that are situated in the throat; its primary function is to protect the body from various infections. Although the disorder can occur at any age, it is majorly common among children. A large number of bacteria or viruses can cause this disorder, but the most serious symptoms occur when it is caused by the streptococcal bacteria.
The first defense mechanism of the body is made up of the tonsils. They synthesize white blood cells which fight against infections. Although tonsils combat these infections, at times, they can fall prey to the same, thus resulting in tonsillitis. Tonsillitis can be caused by both virus and bacteria; however, it is mostly caused by the former. Kids and school going children are very vulnerable to this disorder as they can come in contact with harmful viruses and bacteria very easily.
You will experience symptoms such as a sore throat, bad breath and have difficulty in speaking. Swelling of the tonsils will also make swallowing of food a difficult affair. Other symptoms of tonsillitis are stomach cramps, fever and headaches. The neck and the jaw may also feel tender due to the swollen lymph nodes.
If the symptoms are mild, then it usually does not require any specific treatment. For severe symptoms, antibiotics are prescribed to combat the bacteria that caused the infection in the first place. Chronic cases of this disorder warrant a surgery known as tonsillectomy. This is a surgical procedure to remove the tonsils. In case of dehydration, intravenous fluids are administered.
In addition to these treatment methods, there are certain home remedies that you can follow. The tips you can follow are:
- Keep yourself well hydrated
- Use a humidifier
- Gargle with lukewarm water mixed with salt, regularly
