Hello sir, My Brother has vomited blood and he was diagnosed with sliding hiatus hernia. What should he do?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Most cases of hiatal hernias don’t require treatment. The presence of symptoms usually determines treatment. If you have acid reflux and heartburn, you may be treated with medications or, if those don’t work, surgery.

Causes And Symptoms Of Ear Infections

MBBS
ENT Specialist, Roorkee
Causes And Symptoms Of Ear Infections

Our ears are small in size, but ‘big’ in the work they do. Not only do they help us hear, but also help us maintain our body’s balance. They thus help us stand, walk, drive…you just name it.

Ears are also much bigger in size than they actually are. The part of the ear that we see on our head is only the external ear, there is a middle ear and an inner ear too, silently carrying out complex functions related to hearing and balance. The middle ear that lies behind your ear drum is the seat of balance. And this part is hit hard at the time of an ear infection.

Ear infections cause the Eustachian tubes – small tubes that connect the middle ear to the back of your throat – to become swollen and blocked due to excess mucus. As a result of this, fluid builds up and inflammation takes root in the middle ear, thereby causing pain.

Ear infections can be acute or chronic. Acute infections clear up in a few days, but chronic ones reoccur frequently. If not managed, chronic ear infections can cause permanent damage to the middle and inner ear.

Causes of Eustachian tube blockage are as follows:

  1. Allergies
  2. Sinus infection
  3. Cold
  4. Extreme production of mucus
  5. Smoking
  6. Infected adenoid, which is a tissue near your tonsils that traps harmful bacteria and viruses

There are a few risk factors associated with ear infections. It can be said that young children are more susceptible to these infections. This is because their Eustachian tubes are short and narrow. It has also been seen that infants who are bottle-fed have a higher incidence of ear infections than breastfed babies.

Other risk factors are:

  1. Changes in altitude
  2. Changes in climate
  3. Exposure to tobacco smoke
  4. Use of pacifiers

Symptoms of ear infections:

  1. Pain or discomfort inside the ear
  2. A prolonged feeling of pressure inside the ear
  3. Pus-like ear drainage
  4. Hearing loss

What is also important to know is that the symptoms of an ear infection come and go.

Symptoms can also occur in one or both ears. Chronic ear infection symptoms can be less noticeable than those of acute ear infections.

Hence, fever and ear ache should spur you to consult a doctor. You should be extremely careful with babies younger than six months who have fever or ear infection symptoms.

Your doctor will diagnose an ear infection by checking if there is a draining of fluid from the middle ear, perforation in the eardrum or a collapsed eardrum.

Sometimes, ear infections can lead to the following serious complications:

  1. Hearing loss
  2. Speech or language delay in children
  3. An infection in a skull bone called mastoiditis
  4. Meningitis
  5. Ruptured ear drum

Can the body kill pinworms without medications?-----KILL WITHOUT MEDICATIONS? Or at least detect the presence of these worms and flush out automatically without taking albendazole. If yes please explain.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, no body can not flush pin worms without albendazole or pyrntel pamoate or for that matter any other anthelmentic. Drugs are needed to kill adult female worms which lay a lot of eggs (11000 to 16000) around anal opening and also for eliminating eggs. Albendazole kills adult worms and breaks the life cycle. So the answer to your question is without drugs pinworms can not be eradicated.

SLEEP TIPS :

1) Go to bed and get up at the same time every day, even on weekends, holidays and days off. Being consistent reinforces your body's sleep-wake cycle and helps promote better sleep at night.

2) Don't go to bed either hungry or stuffed. Your discomfort might keep you up. Also limit how much you drink before bed, to prevent disruptive middle-of-the-night trips to the toilet.

3) Do the same things each night to tell your body it's time to wind down. This might include taking a shower, reading a book, or listening to soothing music — preferably with the lights dimmed.

4)Create a room that's ideal for sleeping. Often, this means cool, dark and quiet.Your mattress and pillow can contribute to better sleep, too.

5) Limit daytime naps to about 10 to 30 minutes and make it during the midafternoon.

6) Regular physical activity can promote better sleep, helping you to fall asleep faster and to enjoy deeper sleep.

I removed my sons's one tooth by dentist from root. He is 12 yrs old. What I need to do for his new teeth grow.

Post Graduate Certificate In Endodontics (P.G.C.E), BDS
Dentist,
Dear ! at 12 years of age one have mixed dentition (means both type of teeth are present in mouth milk teeth as well as permanent teeth) so, future treatment will be decided on" which tooth has been extracted milk tooth or permanent one. If: 1) milk tooth is extracted, so permanent tooth will erupt soon as replacement, that can be confirmed by dentist after examining an x-ray to see the location of upcoming tooth. 2) if permanent tooth has been removed then no replacement tooth will erupt in empty space, so, you must show your son to a dentist, who can clarify your doubts after seeing the case. Regards!
