U should get a ct scan (hrct temporal bone) done to see the extent of disease so that treatment can be planned. If there is bone infection surgery is mandatory to control and to eradicate the disease.

Can I take amoxicillin-pot Clavulanate and azithromycin 500 mg together, I have a tonsil and throat infection?

Can I take amoxicillin-pot Clavulanate and azithromycin 500 mg together, I have a tonsil and throat infection?
It is not that you can not take this combination but there are very specific few situations in which this combination is required. That can only be decided on clinical examination and necessary investigations. If you take unindicated antibiotics it may develop resistance means when next time it is actually required it may not work. So please do not self medicate take proper opinion.

I m a 35 yr old man weight 65 kg height 5.5 ft. When I was 16 a friend hit me on my right ear and I got a deep tone and about 50% hearing loss and damage eardrum. After that and till now some time my ear flows and got some different noise. I've x-ray report and doctor suggesting me for operation. Let me know how good it will be after operation.?

DNB (ENT), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Bangalore
Hi You seem to have chronic suppurative otitis media (csom). Based on the history provided and the 50% hearing loss + damaged ear drum + occasional flowing of discharge and tinnitus means the ear is getting infected repeatedly and has a chance of worsening if the infection spreads deeper into the ear or to other neighbouring structures. It is therefore recommended that you undergo surgery to have this corrected.

Hello, nothing to worry about throat infection, keep water aside and drink one sip while you talking, this will keep your throat wet and you wont feel like tired. Pld don't worry about the weight, just keep your healthy food going on time, add more protein as a supplements from natural source. 9 amino acids, which keeps harmonal balancing. Let me know if I can help you personally.

Hi, please follow these tips to stop snoring: - reduce your weight if you are obese. - perform pranayama (breathing exercises) everyday. - quit smoking which irritates the mucosal layer of the nose and throat and causes blockage and results in snoring. - quit alcohol and sedatives which relax the throat muscles and results in snoring. - sleep on sides instead on back. - elevate the head by using a thick pillow which eases the breathing. - clear the nose before going to bed. - establish regular sleep pattern. - keep the bedroom air moist by using humidifier; as dry air irritates the mucosal membrane in the nose and throat. - perform throat exercises like repeating the vowels a, e, i, o, you loudly for 2-3 mins few times a day or keeping the tongue behind the teeth and moving it backwards - 3-4 times a day. - anti snoring appliances can also be used.

Homeopathy and Nasal Polyps

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Delhi
Homeopathy and Nasal Polyps

A nasal polyp is a growth within the nasal cavity, which may cause problems with your health. Smaller polyps don't tend to create any problem, but larger ones can cause breathing difficulty, sneezing problems, losing the sense of smell and a dampening of taste as well. Conventional medicine usually prescribes surgery, but homeopathy has effective cures to reduce the polyp and lessen the symptoms over time.

Cures for nasal polyps in Homeopathy:

1. Phosphorus: This medication is especially effective if you have nasal polyps that bleed. This is effective with people who have a tall and slender build and tend to develop a thirst for cold water as the polyp grows within them. The polyps may bleed regularly and also block the nostrils in such a way that they get a circular motion when breathing. 

2. Lemna Minor: This medicine is very effective when there is an intense level of nasal blockage and you are experiencing anosmia or a loss of the sense of smell. These kind of nasal polyps tend to worsen during the wet season and can even cause a thick white discharge from the nose which has a foul smell.

3. Calcarea Carbonica: Useful in the cases of people who are overweight, some homeopathic doctors tend to prescribe this medication in cases where a person may be quickly affected by seasonal changes, such as hot to cold or cold to hot weather. Other symptoms where this medication is applicable are:

  • Frequent sneezing
  • Profuse sweating during the night
  • Sore nose
  • Small amounts of white discharge
  • Nostrils are mostly dry

4. Conium Maculatum: This medication is very effective if you have a dry nose, which seems to get sudden discharges irregularly. Instead of a loss of smell, you may develop a more acute sense of smell. If the patient is suffering from frequent sneezes and complains of nasal blocks in the morning, conium can be an effective remedy

5. Sanguinaria Canadensis: This medicine is know be a great remedy primarily for polyps, which are right sided or occur within the right nostril of the nose. Some of the symptoms where Sanguinaria Canadensis is very effective are:

  1. Profuse amounts of nasal discharge
  2. Frequent sneezing
  3. Swollen nasal membrane
  4. Right sided headache along with right sided blockage of nostrils

My nose is blocked from 3 days. What should I do?

MS - ENT
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist,
You can use oxymetazoline nasal drops/spray but not more than 1 week. You may have enlarged turbinates or deviated nasal septum. It will be informative if you can take a photo of your nose in such a way that I can show inside of your nasal cavity. For proper visibility of interior of your nose, first cut the nasal hairs and take photo with flash. Send it to me so I can guide you further.
