I'm suffering from BPPV. What can be the causes? and what are the remedies?

DBCM (AM) General Physician
Alternative Medicine,
I'm suffering from BPPV. What can be the causes? and what are the remedies?
Often, there's no known cause for bppv. This is called idiopathic bppv. When a cause can be determined, bppv is often associated with a minor to severe blow to your head. Less common causes of bppv include disorders that damage your inner ear or, rarely, damage that occurs during ear surgery or during prolonged positioning on your back, such as in a dentist chair. Bppv also has been associated with migraines.

Children generally are prone to bleeding from the nose. Pinch the nose for about 5 minutes, the bleeding should stop. Get the blood for bleeding & clotting time tested.

I have a boil inside the nostril which is paining. Which tablets should I take orally. Please advise.

DNB (ENT), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Bangalore
Hi, This is called nasal vestibulitis and requires antibiotic treatment. However it is important to break the boil to remove the pus. See an ent for that and get a prescription of oral antibiotics and antiseptic creams. If you can share a photo of the boil then I can prescribe the medications after seeing the nature of the boil.

I have snoring problem. Does it effect my health? How can I control of this issue?

BAMS
Ayurveda, Bangalore
Hi, please follow these tips to stop snoring: - reduce your weight if you are obese. - perform pranayama (breathing exercises) everyday. - quit smoking which irritates the mucosal layer of the nose and throat and causes blockage and results in snoring. - quit alcohol and sedatives which relax the throat muscles and results in snoring. - sleep on sides instead on back. - elevate the head by using a thick pillow which eases the breathing. - clear the nose before going to bed. - establish regular sleep pattern. - keep the bedroom air moist by using humidifier; as dry air irritates the mucosal membrane in the nose and throat. - perform throat exercises like repeating the vowels a, e, i, o, you loudly for 2-3 mins few times a day or keeping the tongue behind the teeth and moving it backwards - 3-4 times a day. - anti snoring appliances can also be used.
