No. You need to meet an ENT Specialist immediately as it is probably a nasal or sinus infection causing crusting that is blocking your nostrils. Otrinoz will only worsen your discomfort.

You are a diabetic and should not be using iic or cic hearing aids. Starkey and Oticon both have mini-RIC type of hearing aids which also have Bluetooth pairing with your Smartphone. A good hairstylist can better conceal this device than any canal occluding aid. And the sound clarity is a huge difference with no occlusal effect and best of all batteries which last upto 10 days. Newer rechargeable batteries also available.

MBBS, Diploma in Otorhinolaryngology (DLO)
ENT Specialist, Bangalore
Throat Pain - Causes And Symptoms

Virus is the most common cause of pain in the throat or sore throat and it is often accompanied by cold symptoms like running nose, red watery eyes, cough and sneezing. Smoking, irritants in the air and pollution are the main causes of sore throat. It becomes very difficult to swallow food in such a condition when an individual experiences pain, itchiness or irritation in their throat.

Causes
The main causes of occurrence of sore throat include:

Symptoms of Sore Throat:

  • The Nasal passages get blocked
  • Inability to gulp down food
  • Severe pain in the throat which is followed by coughing
  • Lymph glands get swollen
  • Fever is followed by Chills

When to Visit the Doctor
It is very important to visit your doctor, if the pain in the throat lasts for longer time and it is accompanied by symptoms like joint pain, difficulty in breathing and fever. The primary symptom of sore throat is pain in the throat and other symptoms like hoarseness and white patches on the tonsils also occur under this condition. People of all age groups can get affected with this condition, but it affects mostly children and smokers. People with weak immune system and suffering from allergies are also prone to pain in the throat. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ent Specialist.

The best option is to meet an ENTSurgeon equipped with LASERs in your city as LASER assisted Tonsillar Ablation is the best option where about 2 mm thickness of the tonsillar surface is vapourised by the LASER. This will render the Tonsillar Crypt shallow so food cannot be trapped in it causing the tonsillolith. Another benefit is that the foul-smelling bacteria that reside on the surface of the tonsil will also be destroyed during this procedure, so you can also say goodbye to bad breath!

Blocked Nose - Remedies For It!

MBBS, Diploma in Otorhinolaryngology (DLO)
ENT Specialist, Bangalore
Blocked Nose - Remedies For It!

A blocked nose is not only annoying, but extremely discomforting. Several reasons can be held responsible for it and common cold is certainly not the only one. Some other reasons include:

  1. Flu
  2. Allergy
  3. Sinus

Therefore, the remedial measures for blocked nose vary, depending on the cause that led to it. Some of the ways by which you can redress this problem are:

  1. Use a humidifier: Sinusitis is often held responsible for a clogged nose, a condition that is almost always accompanied by severe pain. In such a situation, placing a humidifier in a room proves to be extremely beneficial. This machine treats blocked nose by converting the water to moisture. This fills up the room and significantly increases the humidity of the room. Therefore, when you breathe, the humid air soothes the inflamed blood vessels in the nose and helps you to breathe properly.
  2. Take a hot shower: When you find it difficult to breathe, a quick hot shower can go a long way in curing the discomfort. The logic that operates is the steam generated from the hot shower thins the mucus and also considerably reduces the inflammation in the nose, allowing you to breathe normally.
  3. Drink lots of water: Though the suggestion may seem incredible, drinking water actually helps in unblocking that blocked nose. When you drink a lot of water, the mucus in the nostrils is thinned, at the same time it pushes back the accumulated fluids, thereby curbing the condition of blocked nose.
  4. Using a saline spray: This is one of the most ancient and trusted ways of treating blocked nose. By administering a saline or a nasal spray, the moisture in your nostrils increases and radically diminishes the inflammation.
  5. Use warm compresses: Using a warm compress has been the most reliable form of medication in times of high temperature and also at times of blocked nose. The compress that was dipped in hot water, when placed on the nose and forehead helps to unblock the nasal passages. The soothing effect of the warm compresses reduces the inflammation and facilitates the process of breathing.

You need to meet an ENT Surgeon as you are exhibiting signs of Sinusitis. A CT Scan of your nose and paranasal sinuses will reveal the actual pathology and guide your doctor towards the right treatment.

Hey, I've been thinking of considering rhinoplasty for a few years now, I'm soon going to be 17 (Male) and my nose is very large. Enough to spoil my looks and is the most noticeable part of my face. I am writing here so I could understand if my nose can positively be rectified through plastic surgery and what would be the estimate cost for it. It would be great if you could give me an estimate cost of the surgery before any appointments so I can discuss it my parents to move forward. Hopefully I could get a few answers from experienced surgeons so it could give me an idea. Thanks a lot!

Any Aesthetic Surgery, the costs will vary depending upon who will operate upon you and where you get operated. The exact procedure also vary depending upon the individual nose requirements. This requires you to meet a Rhinologist or a Plastic Surgeon and after the examination, you will get an estimate. Cost is the least of your problems! You will practically have to take rest at home for at least 2-3 months after the surgery. At the present, as you are a student, I do not believe you can afford that much time off from your studies! So, focus on your studies for the time being and once you have completed all your studies, then you could plan the surgery.

lybrate-user, Ethmoidal Polypi have an underlying Allergic etiology which needs to be properly evaluated by a trained Allergist. You may need to undergo immunotherapy for the same. In the meantime, I would suggest short course high dose oral steroid therapy to shrink the ethmoid polyps if they are causing a nasal obstruction. This treatment is not without side effects but under the supervision of a good ENT Surgeon, these can be easily managed. You are welcome to come down to my clinic in Bangalore to undergo the treatment, but you will need to remain here for at least 2 weeks!

Mouth Breathing - What Can Cause It?

MBBS, Diploma in Otorhinolaryngology (DLO)
ENT Specialist, Bangalore
Mouth Breathing - What Can Cause It?

An estimated of 10 percent or more children snore for more than 1 night. Snoring results from the obstruction of breath when the air makes its way through the mouth. The air passage of the throat through which the air goes in and out causes the tissue to vibrate causing snore. The sound of the snore totally depends on the amount of air passing through the mouth and the frequency at which the throat is vibrating. Children above the age of three years tend to snore when they are deep in sleep.

Primary and secondary snoring:
Children who are otherwise healthy should not have a snoring problem unless there is some health disorder. However, if loud snoring is observed in otherwise a perfectly healthy kid, seeking medical help is a wise thing to do. In general, primary snoring is defined as a condition which is not associated with other sleep-related disorders such as lung disorder, OASS, inability to sleep for a longer duration etc.

Other possibilities:
It is estimated that close to three percent of the children suffers from breathing problem while sleeping. OSAS is a condition which is characterised by pauses in breathing and gasps along with loud snores. There could be instances where a kids’ muscle relaxes way too much obstructing the air to pass through. The body and the brain are both alerted at this stage. As soon as the brain sends a signal, the body wakes up. Thus, most kids suffering from this disorder are not able to sleep well and tend to feel tired throughout the day.

Common causes of sleep apnea:
Sleep apena is a major cause of snoring. It can be caused because of allergies, obesity, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) etc. In children sleep, apnea can also be caused by tonsil. Since the tonsil size of children less than 7 years of age tends to be bigger than adult individuals, it causes snoring related problem. Swollen tonsils not only obstruct air but creates other health related problems as well.

Symptoms of sleep apnea during the day and night:

  1. Loud snore
  2. Snorts, gasps, pauses during sleep
  3. Heavy sweat during sleep
  4. Social and behavioural problems
  5. Failure to get up in the morning
  6. A nasal voice
  7. Easily irritated, cranky and aggressive

Relief measure:
The first thing a that a doctor does is a physical exam followed by observing the symptoms of a kid. Primary snorting can be addressed by physical exercise, counselling and breathing exercise. Problems related to apnea are addressed through medicine, counselling, and exercise. Certain dietary restrictions also needed to be followed during this time. However, apena is completely treatable within a certain time frame.

Usually, for your weight, 1000 mg is too much. That is reserved for persons above 75 kgs. However, it can be given in exceptional cases due to severe infections as deemed fit by your doctor to achieve maximum kill rate of these dangerous germs. It has to be taken twice daily. However, if you experience loose motions or abdominal discomfort, drink a bottle of Yakult probiotic drink after lunch daily till your antibiotic course is over.

LASER assisted Tonsillar Ablation! The infected tonsils are sitting time bombs filled with dangerous multidrug-resistant germs just waiting to attack and destroy your vital organs like heart and kidneys! At the most antibiotics can clear your blood stream off the germs but inside the tonsils, these germs have created a plasmid barrier which even the most potent of antibiotics cannot penetrate. The tonsils have no function after 3 years of age when your spleen, and bone marrow replace the tonsillar tissue for immune regulation. Find an ENT Surgeon in your city who is equipped and experienced in doing LASER assisted Tonsil Ablation. Alternatively, come down to Bengaluru, and I will personally operate upon you and cure you.

The fact that Otrivin is helping you confirms that you need Nasal Surgery to correct the nasal septal deviation. Modern endoscopic techniques have made this a relatively safe and with rapid recovery and minimal post-op discomfort. You can breathe using your nostrils immediately after you come out of surgery!

Hi, my problem started with white chunks from my mouth. And I started feeling lump like thing in my throat. After consulting ent doctor, she told that white chunks are "tonsil stones" and lump like feeling might be due to GERD. After taking medicine its reduced and it started again after few days. I use to feel something in my throat all the time. I don't feel any heart burn. Can any one please suggest what is the problem and whom to consult?

Your tonsils have deep crypts or pits where food particles like rice get trapped and they rot over time and get coated with salivary calcium forming the tonsilloliths! Solution: LASER assisted Tonsillar Ablation wherein about 2-3 mm of the surface of the tonsil is vaporized by the LASER making the pits shallow so food cannot be trapped anymore! I routinely do this surgery. Do drop in to my clinic for further management.

It is a simple inexpensive procedure using a LASER, that I sometimes also do as an Office Procedure. it will cost you about Rs10000 all inclusive. No hospitalisation or bedrest required. However you will need to be on a liquid diet using a thick straw for a few days to allow the wounds to heal.
