Any nicotine that is swallowed with saliva or washed down with eating or drinking will not be effective. If a substantial amount of nicotine is swallowed, it may cause such side effects as heartburn, upset stomach or hiccups. Thus, do not eat or drink while you have the gum in your mouth. Your feedback matters. Thank-you.

Is it a myth that one shouldn't use ear buds daily? If yes, then how frequent for people staying in polluted city like Mumbai?

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
We should not use ear buds Bcz while using that one can push the wax deep inside the canal that will be more difficult to remove or one can also perforate the ear drum Bcz of improper assessment of depth of ear drum.So better to avoid using this.

If the vertigo does subside with symptomatic treatment, you have to go for investigations. Most of the time it is because of bppv.

You might be having swimmer's ear/otitis externa which is common after swimming due to infection and inflammation of external ear. Consult a nearby ent specialist for evaluation and treatment, he may start some oral antibiotics and analgesics and may put a icthymol glycerine ear pack for quick pain relief.

Hello sir.
From last one year I have heart palpitation problem. Yesterday my heartbeats gone very slow for 30 seconds...
1st degree heart blocks only delay the passage of impulse from atria to ventricles and as such there is no loss of beats so you should not read too much in this. As far as palpitations are to be considered, this may be due to your anxiety and over consciousness. Try to keep yourself busy in your routine and diverted from this. In case your PR interval gets prolonged in any subsequent examination then reassessment of cardiac function may be done.

My cousin had deviated nasal septum and underwent. Surgery a year back and again he is facing problems with cold stuffed nose etc. What are the other treatment options? Is there laser surgery for this?

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
Are there other problems also like sneezing/nasal discharge/decreased smell? according to your problem it may be due to recurrence of problem or undercorrection at that time. Need of revision surgery can only be advised only after proper evaluation. Nasivion nasal drops 2-2-2-2 both side of nose will help.

Dear Lybrate user, Do you have neck problem or BP, Acidity proble. As there are so many reasons of vertigo like low BP, low HB, stress, acidity, weak vision etc. Call back through Lybrate. As you know due to knack of details for an homeopath it is difficult to prescribe a proper medicine so you can consult online through Lybrate.
