Hello, endoscopic sinus surgery, also known as sinoscopy, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to remove blockages in the sinuses for recurring sinus infections. During the procedure, a thin lighted tube with a camera on the end is inserted into the nose to let the doctor visually examine the area. Tiny surgical instruments are then inserted to remove the obstructive tissues. Endoscopic sinus surgery does not require any incision, as the whole procedure is performed through the nostrils and do not change shape of your nose. Thanks.

For nose block check if you are having nasal polyps - if so it will take sometime to get complete relief. You take ammon carb 30 - thrice daily for next 7 days and get back to me for further treatment. Also check if you are having any fever. Take mag phos 6x - twice daily for back pain.

I think you are having perforated ear drum. Treatment depends on how big is the tear. If its small<20%, there is a chance it will heal by itself, if you take proper precautions. But if the tear/perforation is bigger, you will require repair of ear drum (tympanoplasty).

Please do regular gargles and brush your teeth twice a day. Also take some vitamin c daily for about 3 weeks. If this does not help, consider tonsillectomy.

Virus is the most common cause of pain in the throat or sore throat and it is often accompanied by cold symptoms like running nose, red watery eyes, cough and sneezing. Smoking, irritants in the air and pollution are the main causes of sore throat. It becomes very difficult to swallow food in such a condition when an individual experiences pain, itchiness or irritation in their throat.

Causes
The main causes of occurrence of sore throat include:
-leukemia in exceptional cases
-measles
-sinusitis
-diphtheria
-mumps
-bacterial as well as viral infection as in common cold
-influenza
-smoking

Symptoms of sore throat
The nasal passages get blocked
-inability to gulp down food
-severe pain in the throat which is followed by coughing
-lymph glands get swollen
-fever is followed by chills

When to visit the doctor
It is very important to visit your doctor, if the pain in the throat lasts for longer time and it is accompanied by symptoms like joint pain, difficulty in breathing and fever. The primary symptom of sore throat is pain in the throat and other symptoms like hoarseness and white patches on the tonsils also occur under this condition. People of all age groups can get affected with this condition, but it affects mostly children and smokers. People with weak immune system and suffering from allergies are also prone to pain in the throat.

I cleaned my ear with cotton swabs and it's bleeding. I found that it's bleeding when I was cleaning the cotton swab became red. I have less hearing in that ear right now. What must I do now. Does it need any special attention or it can naturally heal? Explain me in detail.

It is not advisable to clean ones ear by themselves as it is a blind procedure. Get somebody to do it for you. If you do it all by yourself there is a chance to injury the ear. Get an ent surgeons opinion who will diagnose what the problem is. The injury if at all it is there will heal on its own. Do not allow any water to enter the ear for about 2 weeks.

The best medicine I can suggest you is one of the simplest home remedies for a cough is to cut onions. Breathing in the strong vapors can help stop coughing. You can also make a cough syrup from baked onion juice, comfrey tea and honey. Drink it daily to get relief from a dry cough. Another option is to combine one-half teaspoon of onion juice with one teaspoon of pure honey. Swallow this solution at least twice a day to alleviate a cough and soothe your throat.

You are more likly to have copd, considering your smoking history. Kindly get a spirometry done and post bronchodialator spirometry also to decide reversibility of airway obstruction, its severity, its diagnosis, asthma/copd. If copd change to tiomate 2puff once day with spacer. Also check your spo2 concentration and its fall on exersion. Get an holter done to r/o any arrythmia. Better consult a local pulmonologist for better planning your treatment.

Pain in throat may be due to allergy cum infection in throat. Through examination of throat is required. If required after taking throat swab for culture and sensitivity, accordingly antibiotics and antihistamincs, analgesics can be given.
