Ear wax is formed in outer portion of the ear and if you use buds which are not ear buds though, this will introduce the wax further in side the ear and this will lead to blockage, wax is produced on daily basis and if you let water go in side your ear this will help you cleaning your ears by litself and secondly ears get cleaned by chewing your food properly

As per my CT Scan report, a well defined irregular minimally enhancing soft tissue density lesion in the right nasal cavity measuring 15 x 8 x 18 (AP x TS x CC) abutting the middle turbinate superiorly, inferior turbinate inferiorly and nasal septum medially. Minimal Mucosal thickening is seen in the right maxillary sinus. Minimal deviation of cartilaginous part of nasal septum to the left side. IMPRESSION: Right nasal polyp as described above – suggested clinical correlation. I am agd 68 and diabetic but in absolute control with tablets. Please advise if Polyp removal by operation is advised. I have no problems of pain or breathing problems, except that the right nose (just in the beginning) pains which reduces after some antibiotics. This happed twice in the last 1 month.

Sinusitis, is nothing but a physiological disorder of nose which led by malfunctioning of aerodynamics of nose (temporary sinusitis, secondly it is because of repeated infections of the sinus (permanent sinusitis) sinuses regulations and air conditioning of the air which we breathe and to get the benefit of above we must have normal, well sized opened sinusitis and hence nose breathing is required, those who breathe from mouth, they have tendency to get more throat and lungs infections. Recurrent sinus infection, pollution, poor diet, spicy food, long term steam inhalation from nose, and allergies leads to thick discharge from nose. This thick mucus if stays in the sinuses, it leads to irritation of the sinus skin which is mucosa and this go on growing hence leads to permanent sinusitis this extra growth is called nasal polyps this is where patient needs surgical correction. If patient comes to nose surgeon at right time, doctor can revert his/her symptoms and surgery can be abandoned. But most of the time patient comes to us after trying everything which he/she hears from neighbors, tv channels, ayurvedic or homeopathic treatment. Sinusitis if patient does not take serious steps to correct might lead to cardiac symptoms, lung diseases, etc. Once there are nasal polyps you have to go for surgery immediately.

You should be very careful to use the ear bud it is verybdangerous if you use it quite often because thereby you may damage the tympanic membrane of the ear which is very very thin just. 007mm only and it is very sensitive too you may may cause the perforation of the tympanic membrane. Consult a e n t specialist. To assess the situation in the ear. You may putvsome antibiotic ear drop into the ear for three days.

Hello Sir, I have immunity problem, always sneezing and nose snivelling every time. What to do?

MBBS
General Physician, Cuttack
1. Do steam inhalation with karvol plus inhalant capsule 2-3 times daily 2. Put otrivin nasal drop one drop three times daily 3. Take one tablet oflevo cetrizine at bed time 4. If you have recurrent attack of sneezing, you may be having sinusitis or allergic rhinitis 5. Take x ray/ct scan of pns to confirm sinusitis and consult ent specialist for advice and treatment 6. If sinusitis is excluded, then it is due to allergic rhinitis, do an allergy test after consulting allergy specialist/immunologist to find out the cause of allergy and follow the treatment and advice accordingly.

You may be suffering from fungus in the ear, called Otomycosis. It is a very common condition, especially during rainy season. For treatment, keep ear dry, don't allow water to enter the ear during bath. If problem still persists, put some Anti fungal ear drops in the ear three times a day for 15-20 days.

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) fever 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 medications. Being also a general physician, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary tips taking into account patient preferences.
