I can't resist Sudden weather change during monsoon it causes throat burn pain and head pain above eyes. How could I overcome it?

General Physician, Agartala
I can't resist Sudden weather change during monsoon it causes throat burn pain and head pain above eyes. How could I ...
I undertand you're visibly troubled by this seasonal illness. However, this is easily explained by a condition called acute rhinosinusitis. Altered body immunity combined with pollen in the air from plants and roadside weeds can trigger the body to respond in a defensive way leading to swelling of the membranes of your nose, throat and sinuses. These swollen membranes then secrete mucous which gets accumulated within these sinuses leading to headache. Preventing this would be possible by covering your face with a balaclava mask or a scarf when riding your bike or going out in dusty places. If inspite of preventive measures this were to occur, steam inhalation helps in opening up sinuses leading to drainage of these accumulated secretions hence relieving the headache that causes you discomfort. Hope this answers your query. Feel free to contact me if there's any query.

Your tongue ulcer should be cured first as the ear pain is mainly a referred pain from the oropharynx.

Perichondritis - Can Sports Injuries Lead to it?

Perichondritis - Can Sports Injuries Lead to it?

Perichondritis is an infection that occurs in the tissues surrounding the cartilage of the outer ear which provide nourishment to the cartilage. It is also known as auricular Perichondritis. In some cases, the immune system of the body may turn dysfunctional and start to destroy these tissues. Such a medical condition is then known as relapsing Perichondritis.

It is usually caused when the tissues experience trauma. Certain causes are:
1. It may occur after a surgery due to surgical trauma
2. Certain sports injuries
3. Ear piercing increases the risk of this infection
4. Any burn, laceration and cuts around the outer ear
5. If you have untreated ear condition such as swimmer’s ear (infection in the outer canal of the ear)

The symptoms of Perichondritis are:
1. You may experience swelling and redness in the affected area
2. You may have a fever
3. Pus may develop in the affected area
4. In some cases, the ear structure may be deformed
In addition to the above symptoms, relapsing Perichondritis may cause hearing loss, sudden weight loss, pain in your muscles and complications in your respiratory system.

Treatment
The treatment of Perichondritis usually involves antibiotics. Antibiotics are administered depending on the severity of the symptoms. If there is trapped pus involved, then surgery may be required to treat the condition. An incision is made in the affected area and then the pus is drained out. If the infection is extremely severe resulting in deformity of the ear, then parts of the ear might have to be amputated. Plastic surgery may also be used to correct the shape of the ear.

In case of relapsing Perichondritis, certain steroid medications are administered to suppress the immune system to prevent it from attacking the tissues. There are some preventive measures, which you can employ to avoid Perichondritis. Avoid piercing your ear to reduce chances of contracting this infection. Also, if you have conditions such as swimmer’s ear, then make sure it is treated at the earliest. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a ent-specialist.

Dear this is due to the dryness of the mouth, first you get checked your thyroid status, and start getting yourself hydrated in this dry weather, take good amount of semi solids like shakes lemon juices, sugarcane juice, and lassie curds any of milk products like cold coffee, hot coffee, this will definitely benefit you. As long as your mouth remains hydrated this will act as protective layer and this will protect you by raising local immunity in the mouth. Stomach ache is the reason due to acidity and take some home remedy for this.

Pain in throat since past 5 days and green colored sputum! fever is present but not very high.
are you currently taking any medication? do prevent a sore throat infection, a sore throat (pharyngitis) is normally a symptom of a bacterial or viral infection, such as the common cold. In around a third of cases, no cause for the sore throat can be found. If you have a sore throat, you may also have: swollen tonsils (tonsillitis), enlarged and tender glands in your neck, discomfort when swallowing, I am a general physician who will prescribe you an appropriate treatment plan for your case, 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.
