Water can get sometime inside our ear during bathing or swimming. The fact is that we are all living beings and so mostly minimum amount of clean water inside the ear will be absorbed gradually due to body heat and other mechanisms. But if water is too cold or contaminated, than your middle part or inner part of ear canal will get inflamed and infected. This inflammation spreads rapidly towards tympanic membrane and causes pain on deglutination or jaw movement. Brownish coloured fluid has been seen once, which may be abrasive wound or chronic suppurative otitis media. So consult any ENT surgeon with digital x-ray of left ear immediately. Avoid any ear drops or oil inflitration in left ear. Avoid any hot fomentation without ENT doctor advice. Avoid aural toilet, if adviced in any private chamber as aural toilet is contraindicated in perforated tympanic membrane. Avoid cold contact as air conditioned room. Take care.

Hi, My father has open heart surgery 11 years back (in 2005). He is fine, recently a week back he noticed some blood from his nose. This has happened only once. Do I need to worry, which doctor to consult?

The reason could be very trivial like drying of nasal secretions or finger nail trauma or more serious if it is secondary to clotting mechanism derangement if he is taking clot busters for his heart problems. Check his pt and ptt.

EAR  PIERCING:WHAT YOU   NEED TO DO AFTER PIERCING
1)Keep the ear-piercing clean.
After washing hand with soap and water clean the ear lobules with cotton wool dipped in antiseptic solution ,twice a day.
2)Rotate the ear-ring in its hole slowly to avoid build up of debris.
3)Keep the region dry
4)Look out for signs of infection.Infection and allergic reactions make the chance of hypertrophic scar, and keloid formation more likely.
5)Don’t try to change the ear-ring/stud before 6 weeks after Ear piercing.
6)Continue wearing ear-ring continuously for 6 months as otherwise tract will not form and the piercing may close.

If you want to know more about precautions materials and complications ( which may even be disfiguring ) check this outhttp://healthwealthbridge.com/ear-piercing/

Hello , dont worry, even if some water has entered the ear, it will come out on its own. If you are feeling any giddiness or a lot of pain, you can take a course of antibiotics. Dont worry, you will be better.

My father aged 86 yrs gets dizziness sometimes and had a fall at home last week. For the last three yrs. He has light bp and sugar which is being monitored. We took a ct scan yesterday and the report which is other wise normal says there is mild chronic ischemic changes in bilateral periventricular regions. Please let me know if this is the cause for his giddiness and whether he can be treated with only medicines because of his age.

MS - ENT, DNB (ENT)
ENT Specialist, Delhi
The ct scan report is ok for his age. Ask him to use a stick while walking, keep some light on in his bedroom, so that when he wakes up to go and relieve himself the room is not dark. Keep his bp and sugar close to normal. Regards

There is no such interaction I guess. But if you want to take then homoeopathy is far better then allopathic antibiotics. As they don't have any side effects. You may take Phytolacca 30 3 doses 1 hourly. And another advise is to avoid the birth control pills as they have many side effects in a long run. You can read them online. Instead use condoms. Or CE method.

Regarding sinusits main symptoms for maxillary sinusitis are thick nasal discharge, headache, watering eyes, forehead pain, recurrent infection of nose and mouth, post nasal drip, sinusitis, is nothing but a physiological disorder of nose which led by malfunctioning of aerodynamics of nose (temporary sinusitis, secondly it is because of repeated infections of the sinus (permanent sinusitis) sinuses regulations and air conditioning of the air which we breathe and to get the benefit of above we must have normal, well sized opened sinusitis and hence nose breathing is required, those who breathe from mouth, they have tendency to get more throat and lungs infections. Recurrent sinus infection, pollution, poor diet, spicy food, long term steam inhalation from nose, and allergies leads to thick discharge from nose. This thick mucus if stays in the sinuses, it leads to irritation of the sinus skin which is mucosa and this go on growing hence leads to permanent sinusitis this extra growth is called nasal polyps this is where patient needs surgical correction. If patient comes to nose surgeon at right time, doctor can revert his/her symptoms and surgery can be abandoned. Sinusitis if patient does not take serious steps to correct might lead to cardiac symptoms, lung diseases, etc. Once there are nasal polyps you have to go for surgery immediately.

Rhinitis - Common Signs You Must Not Ignore!

DNB (ENT), MBBS
ENT Specialist, Bangalore
Rhinitis - Common Signs You Must Not Ignore!

Rhinitis is an irritable medical condition where the mucous lining of a person's nose swells up. The term is more of a category and less of a definitive way to describe something specific. Rhinitis involves a host of other conditions that affect the mucous membranes of your nose. If you were not aware, common cold is also a kind of rhinitis. Rhinitis can cause acute touchiness in the inner lining of the nose leading to continuous discharges from one's nose. It can also lead to clogging of your nose or inflammation of the internal tissues. 

Rhinitis can be divided under two main types; allergic and non- allergic rhinitis. Allergic rhinitis, popularly known as hay fever is caused due to contact with allergens that are usually undamaging. However, in case of non- allergic rhinitis the symptoms take after that of the allergic type but no particular causal factor can be identified.

Factors that can increase your propensity to suffer from rhinitis of any kind are:

  • Pollen from flowers
  • Inhaling certain substances can be harmful; smell of certain chemicals is bad too.
  • Both active as well as passive smoking can be detrimental
  • High levels of air pollution contributes to the risk
  • Weather conditions affect your health; a windy yet humid weather can aggravate rhinitis.

Common symptoms of rhinitis can be listed as below:

  1. A person suffering from this condition might catch a cold all of a sudden.
  2. People, usually little children, might even face high fevers.
  3. Your nose tends to be runny. After the infection subsides, chances of a thick, sticky discharge are more.
  4. Exhaustion is also felt in combination with headaches and teary eyes.
  5. The nature of your nasal discharge tells the doctor if you are suffering from an allergy or from a viral infection.

A few preventive measures to aid you against rhinitis:

  1. Rhinitis can be communicable and in most cases it is so. Therefore a person should not share his or her utensils and other personal things such as towels or handkerchiefs with any other person.
  2. One should not be in close proximity of another infected person.
  3. Hands are the most common sources of infection. One must wash his or her unclean hands before touching the face. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ent Specialist.
