I am suffering from sinus problem. A doctor advised me to use mustard oil for my nose, means dropping some drops of mustard oil inside nose before sleeping. Is it safe or I should stop that.

Homeopath, Thrissur
Using mustard oil will definitely relieve the nasal congestion in some patients. But it may not give a permanent solution for your sinusitis. Permanent solution is accomplished in following ways. 1. Your blood cbc has to be looked for any causes 2. An x ray pns has to be taken to see which sinus is affected. 3. If sinusitis is confirmed homoeopathic treatment after assessing your genetic make up will give permanent solution.

Lactose Intolerance - How to Deal With It?

Lactose Intolerance -  How to Deal With It?

People suffering from lactose intolerance find it difficult to digest the lactose or sugar in milk, which results in gas, bloating or even diarrhea. An inadequacy of an enzyme called lactase, produced in the small intestine, is the root of lactose intolerance, a condition also known as lactose malabsorption.

How to deal with lactose intolerance in your child?

  1. Cutting out on dairy products does not mean you would be deprived of sufficient amount of calcium. Find alternate sources of calcium in your food apart from dairy products, for instance, spinach, rhubarb, pinto beans oranges, milk substitutes such as rice milk or soy milk, canned salmon, juices, breads and broccoli. Do give your child foods rich in vitamin D such as liver, eggs and yogurt. Asking your child to spend some time out in the sun can be a great idea in this regard, as well. Your physician will prescribe you with calcium and vitamin D supplements.
  2. Limit your child’s intake of dairy products. Opt for small servings of milk so as to reduce the chances of gastrointestinal troubles. Your child should consume milk with other foods to delay the digestive process. Try out a variety of dairy products as not all of them possess the same amount of lactose. Buy lactose free products or use lactase enzyme drops or tablets that may aid your child in digesting different dairy products.
  3. Probiotics are living organisms that exist in your intestine and help you in maintaining a healthy digestive system. Yoghurt and other supplement capsules are rich in probiotics. Hence, they can be perfect choices for your child. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gastroenterologist.

I am suffering from sinusitis. How to get rid of it please help me. I am not suppose to drink cold water even in summer. When I affect with there will be severe. Pain in nasal cavity and nose will block for long time.

D.N.B, D.L.O
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Bangalore
Hi you can not get rid of sinusitis. Certain precautions can be taken during an attack of sinusitis to avoid further worsening. You should start with steam inhalation twice a day. That will help in clearing up the phlegm collected in sinuses also reducing the headache if you have. Nasal blockade will be due to allergy can use nasal decongestant drops to open up during night but keep usage occasionally. You can have cold water but not the chilled ones. Avoid exposure to dust that precipitates an attack of sinusitis. Get an x-ray of sinuses done and nasal endoscopy done that will give a better picture of how severe is sinusitis accordingly treatment can be started. Take care.

From yesterday I am feeling a flesh ball just above the anus layer. Feeling little pain while walking and at the time of cough. What exactly is this, how serious is this and what should I need to do?

This could be a fissure with sentinel pile. Anal fissure improves with general measures but may require surgery. The general measures I would suggest are 1. Take lot of vegetables & fruits in your diet 2. Avoid chillies & spices 3. Take lot of fluids 4. Avoid constipation 5 periodically do anal exercises (alternately contracting & relaxing the buttocks, anal area & upper thighs) 6. Take sitz bath 3-4 times a day. This means sitting in a tub of warm water & doing anal exercises 7. Atleast once get it examined by a general surgeon. Purulent discharge might be due to a fistula. The surgeon will find it on examination.

Hi Sir, My brother had cough & fever from Sept-Nov 2015 he was on Antibiotics, Paracetamol and cough syrup for same time but didn't got any relief finally done Chest CT scan in Nov and found Pleural Effusion, pleural fluid aspirate done on 24th Nov but whole fluid didn't not aspirated because patient get vertigo problem during aspiration so doctor stop aspiration, from 24th Nov TB treatment started. He got mild relief from cough and fever But after 15-20 days he again faced severe cough and mild fever, again CT scan and Chest sonography done and found some pleural fluid. Again, pleural fluid aspiration done and TB treatment continue, from that day he started getting relief day by day. Now is feeling absolutely fine. TB treatment is continue from Nov till today. From April he started feeling Hip shoulder back knee and Feet pain, some blood test done and found Vitamin B12 & Vitamin D is very much deficient. Both vitamin B12 and D injections and capsules Tablets supplement started and got felling better but didn't get any relief in Feet pain. Since last 40 days he having pain, pin needles and burning sensation in both feet.As per doctor prescription all types pain killer reliever like Dynapar SR, Zobid Zerodol SP etc taken but till today didn't got any relief in feet pain, even pain killer didn't work for 1 hour. We took opinion from Orthopedic and Neuro Surgeon and done MRI of Spine and Feet, MRI is normal as per MRI report but Feet pain and burning is still persist Now we consult with Neurologist, he said it look that it's Neuropathy due to TB medicine Isonizad. He said to consult TB physician and stop taking Isonizad and he prescribed Tab Pregabalin, Zen 100, Ultracet and Deep Senz ointment. We again consult with our TB physician, he said TB drug Isonizad can't be withdrawal because if we stop it TB May relapse later. As per doctor TB treatment will continue for more 3 months i. E. Till the end August Feet pain burning pin needles sensation is still persist. So now we are very confused and can't understand what to do. We have following questions 1 Please advise us what to do 2 Is Neuropathy is permanent? 3 Can neuropathy can be cured? 4 Can we stop Isonizad? Thanks & regards.

Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
Neuropathy is usually irreversible, but can be benefited after some time and taking few drugs with tb drugs to prevent further neuropathy. Isoniazid can be stopped but it may weaken the course of treatment and the chances of getting tb again may increase with a weak course.

Dear lybrate-user, to know the cause of cough and its duration are very important before the treatment. It is known by detailed questioning and some investigations especially if cough is more than 2 weeks old. For more than 2 weeks old cough eosinophilia, allergy, chest or sinus infections, silent pneumonia tb are also to be ruled out. Physical examination is of paramount importance.
