Her nose bleeds regularly. It happens any time. What should she do.

Diploma in Otorhinolaryngology (DLO), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist,
Hello welcome to lybrate:) bleeding from nose can be due to a variety of reasons. Reasons can range from 1. Local causes (in the nose) a. Infection b. Injury c. Tumor 2. General causes a. Bleeding disorders b. Liver or kidney problems each cause has plenty of sub-causes. Special investigations are available to find out the exact cause. In the event of bleeding try these measures (they are just suggestions to help you) 1. Pinch the nose for 5 min and let her breath through her mouth 2. Put some nasal decongestant drops into nose and pinch for sometime like said above 3. Keep head in an elevated position 4. In worst case when the bleeding doesn't stop take her to an ent doctor a nasal endoscopy can reveal any local causes which caused the bleeding. Hope she gets better soon. Feel free to revert back to us.

What is the best treatment for nasal polyps? I am told that post surgery has a high rate of recurrence

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
Surgery (fess i. E functional endoscopic sinus surgery) in expert hands is best treatment for nasal polyps. If postop care and precautions are taken chances of recurrence are very less. If surgery is delayed chances of disease progression are there. If you have ct scan report send to me so that I can give you proper advise.

I am 23 year old men and I am suffering nasal allergies please sir/ma'am advice me to solve this problem.
Allergies are due to overreaction of the tissue towards any foreign body which enters in the body and mucus of nose which helps in trapping these foreign bodies and expelling them out from the body but if you have lack of mucus than allergies aggravates to even simple form of dust which enters in the nose dear chanchal this is due to dryness of the mouth, this is because of lack of mucus in the mouth which is protective layer of our mouth, and is being produced in the mouth by glands which will be helped by good and healthy blood supply to the glands, blood with good blood cells will take oxygen to the gland and gland works, they require oxygen in ample of amount, so if you do not take iron diet on daily basis than this will lead to less of mucus production and hence lead to dryness and thick mucus problem, this thick mucus leads to irritation in mouth hence leads to itching in the mouth, start taking good iron diet on daily basis, and shakes, avoid salty and spicy food.

Get the ct scan of nose and sinus done and go to nose consultant as you might be having sinusitis, and linger on your disease as this could lead you in irreversible changes.

As you got your monthly cycle started so pregnancy is not possible, pain in vagina might be due to infection or dryness, so lady keep yourself hydrated in this dry weather, take good amount of semi solids like shakes lemon juices, sugarcane juice, and lassie curds any of milk products like cold coffee, hot coffee, this will definitely benefit you, regarding dizziness, this is not due to ears but get your ears also checked to be on safer side.

How to overcome running nose problem?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.
