A deviated septum can only be corrected with surgery. There is no medicine which can make a crooked bone straight.

I have a wide nose and it widens when I smile. I do some face yoga methods. Like twitching of nose or face uplifts but its not helping. Infact sometimes I feel that my nose has become bigger in last few years. I look ugly when I smile and in photos I can not go for rhinoplasty because its too costly kindly tell me if can reshape my nose by some facial exercise only Thanks.

Rhinoplasty is not costly. The cost of procedure depends on hospital and class you choose for surgery. Yoga and exercise will not alter the shape of your nose.

There are several things you can do to prevent a cold—they are all easy and inexpensive and worth the effort. Wash your hands often-with soap and warm water.The germs stick to the soap and get washed down the drain. Always wash your hands after coughing or sneezing into your hands, blowing your nose, after touching someone who is sick, or when using public restrooms or telephones. Cover Your Mouth and Nose When You Sneeze or Cough- Clean your hands every time you cough or sneeze. Avoid Touching Your Eyes, Nose, or Mouth-Germs are often spread when a person touches a contaminated surface and then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth. Stay Home When You’re Sick-Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, don’t smoke, manage stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food so you can fend off viruses. Take healthy balanced diet...like boiled eggs.daily in breakfast .. Avoid people who have a cold or cold symptoms. Routinely clean and disinfect common areas of your home. Treatment:There is a gradual 1-3 day onset of symptoms. It often starts out as a sore throat, then a fever and coughing. As the cold progresses, the nasal mucus may thicken which is the last stage before the cold dries up. A cold usually lasts for a week or two. But, taking good care of yourself at home can relieve symptoms and help prevent complications if you are otherwise healthy. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn’t need medical treatment. Complications include bacterial infections of the ears, throat, sinuses or lungs which must be treated with antibiotics. In general you should: • get plenty of rest so your body can use its energy to fight the cold • staying at home will keep you from spreading germs • drink plenty of liquids like herbal tea or hot broth/vegetable/tomato soups. Avoid foods or drinks with caffeine which can keep you from getting enough sleep Runny Nose and Sneezing- if you have post nasal drip, gargle to keep from getting a sore throat. Drink extra fluids. (avoid sugary and high calorie drinks) Use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation • Tablet Nasorest-P once/twice daily may reduce the amount of mucous. • Humidify the rooms you are in most or your whole house if possible. • Do steam inhalation once or twice daily Cough-Coughing is how your body gets rid of debris and mucus from the airways during a viral infection. Unless your cough is severe or is keeping you from resting at night, it is better not to treat it. A severe cough can be treated with a cough syp, but don’t try to completely stop the cough. There are two types of coughs. Productive and non-productive or dry cough. Non-productive, dry cough. A dry, hacking cough may develop near the end of a cold. Dry coughs that follow viral colds are often worse at night and can last up to several weeks. Take syrup Alex-D for a dry cough. Cough drops can sooth an irritated throat, but most don’t affect the cough. Productive cough. A productive cough is one that brings up mucus from the back of the throat or the lungs. Productive coughs should not be suppressed to the point they no longer bring up mucus. Use syrup Alex. Drink lots of water if you have a productive cough. Head and Body Aches- Take tablet dolo-650 mg for fever once or twice daily take augmentin 625 mg thrice daily for 3 days for tonsil

I have fever for last three month I am suffering from nose bleed as well tell me solution.
Hi. Bcz your fever is of long duration you should get some blood test done to find out the cause. Along with that get platelet count done bcz nose bleed can occur due to low platelet count which may be due to chronic fever.

Ear, nose&throat (ent) are interconnected & thinking in terms of recurrent infection, tonsilitis, adenoids swelling & chronic discharge from ears if you remove tonsils &adenoids which are septic, there are chances of getting better of ear infectionafter operation. Ear operation (tympanoplasty) after the age of 21yrs. You may try other modalities immunotherapy, certain herbal therapy. High protein diet & supplements etc. Can help.

Earache? before starting any treatment you require to have micro exam of ear. Also if nothing abnormal it may be neuralgia or referred pain of toothache or tonsillitis or any infective lesion in throat. Also sinus problem can give rise to ear ache.

Dear lybrate user scientifically your disease is bacterial generated but bacteria are always secondary, our susceptibility is the primary reason since normally also our throat has so many bacterias thus to treat this tendency you need a constitutional treatment for permanent results.
