Hi, im 25 years old. I feel I have a very bad respiratory system, a very bad and smokey or burning smell comes out through my nostrils when I breathe out. Its very disheartening. Please save me.

DNB (ENT), MBBS
ENT Specialist, Bangalore
Hi it seems like you may have chronic fungal sinusitis which may be causing this kind of bad smell. It may also be due to some neurological issue which is changing your perception of smell - called parosmia. I would suggest that you have your nasal cavity looked at by an ent and if everything is normal then visit a neurologist to rule out any other problem.

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!

1. Apply panderm plus ointment twice daily for (1-2 week) 2. Take one tablet of levocetrizine (5mg) at bed time if itching is severe 3.

You must be suffering from allergic rhinitis and frequent episodes of infections called as rhinosinusitis. Treatments should be taken for long time and permanent cure does not occur usually try using steroid nasal sprays and antihistamines for few months.

This dizziness is not due to weakness, this may be due to ear pathology, hence you need to get ear testing done which is audiometry. This will further suggest us in detail pathology of ears.

I have DNS which leads to snoring, continuous sneezing and continuous nasal blockage. Kindly suggest and remedy.

DNS causes nasal obstruction and snoring. It should be corrected by septoplasty / SMR operation. Sneezing is caused by allergy which should be treated medically.

Sir, I am suffering from tinnitus for last two years kindly give me a suggestion what I can do.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Although bothersome, tinnitus usually isn't a sign of something serious. Although it can worsen with age, for many people, tinnitus can improve with treatment. Treating an identified underlying cause sometimes helps. Other treatments reduce or mask the noise, making tinnitus less noticeable. For many people, certain adjustments make the symptoms less bothersome. These tips may help: Avoid possible irritants. Reduce your exposure to things that may make your tinnitus worse. Common examples include loud noises, caffeine and nicotine. Cover up the noise. In a quiet setting, a fan, soft music or low-volume radio static may help mask the noise from tinnitus. Manage stress. Stress can make tinnitus worse. Stress management, whether through relaxation therapy, biofeedback or exercise, may provide some relief. Reduce your alcohol consumption. Alcohol increases the force of your blood by dilating your blood vessels, causing greater blood flow, especially in the inner ear area.In many cases, tinnitus is the result of something that can't be prevented. However, some precautions can help prevent certain kinds of tinnitus. Use hearing protection. Over time, exposure to loud noise can damage the nerves in the ears, causing hearing loss and tinnitus. If you use chain saws, are a musician, work in an industry that uses loud machinery or use firearms (especially pistols or shotguns), always wear over-the-ear hearing protection. Turn down the volume. Long-term exposure to amplified music with no ear protection or listening to music at very high volume through headphones can cause hearing loss and tinnitus. Take care of your cardiovascular health. Regular exercise, eating right and taking other steps to keep your blood vessels healthy can help prevent tinnitus linked to blood vessel disorders.
