My son is only 17 and a healthy boy but while sleeping he snores very badly though it doesn't effect his sleep. Is there anything to worry about?

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.

I am 25years aged female. My head shakes these days. How I can come out of this problem?

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Spinning and shakes are usually related to veritgo and it might be a cervical also. Advise you to take cinnarizine 25 mg twice a day for 5 days. Pls mention if there is any other problem. I also find your history to be improper.

Gargling with warm salt water is an effective way to treat a sore throat. Salt can even help kill the bacteria or virus causing pharyngitis. 1. Mix three teaspoons of salt (preferably sea salt) in two cups of warm water. 2. Gargle with this solution. Do not swallow it. Spit the water out after gargling. 3. Do this several times daily for one to two days.

Nose se blood nikalna common hai but bahut matra me blood aata hai.Please do help in this regard

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
Dear bleeding from nose can be due to many reasons like any mass or bleeding polypus in the nose, in the adolesecent males one of the reason could be Angiofibroma(tumor of posterior part of nose) and other systemic problems like any bleeding disorders or any sytemic illness. If bleeding is more consult an ENT specialist to rule out any culprit in the nose. U can use nasivion nasal drops 2-2-2-2. Pinching the nose with index finger and thumb, ice sponging will help during the episode of bleed.

I am suffering from running nose and sneezing alway very other I have this problem. I went to many doctors to I also tried homeopathy but nothing happened what to do.

DORL, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Faridabad
No treatment is available or effective unless you get this corrected by surgery, surgery will give you nearly 80-90%. Than remaining you can treat with homeopathy than it will help. The bone of he nose gets deviated this leads to nose breathing problem if a person suffering from nasal obstruction along with sinusits and mild to moderate nasal allergies it means most probably he is suffering from dns (deviated nasal septum. Nasal obstruction is because of the deviated portion of the nasal septum (this is the bony partition of the nose cavity. Allergies are because of the hampered muco-ciliary mechanism (normally mucus is produced in the nose to moisten our nose cavity, oral cavity, and help food bolus to move downward, this mucus is basically moves on the cilia of the nasal mucosa) this mechanism gets hampered and mucus start accumulating in the nose and sinus cavity which is why thick mucus comes from nose in patients of nose obstruction and person develops sinusiits. When a surgeon removes the nasal septum deviation has not been removed properly the symptoms persists, and patient thinks that the nose bone has again regrown. It is not because of regrowth but because of half surgery done or due to the non removal of the deviation (reason can be many) nowadays nasal septal deviation can be removed endoscopically.

I am 27 years old. From last 4 months my smell sense has decreased and consulted a doctor. He prescribed for CT Scan and after seeing scan report he told that I am suffering from nasal polyps (Allergy) has increased in all sinuses and has to do surgery by endoscopy method. Is it compulsory to go for surgery or it can be treated by medicine.

DORL, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Faridabad
Sinusitis, is nothing but a physiological disorder of nose which led by malfunctioning of aerodynamics of nose (temporary sinusitis, secondly it is because of repeated infections of the sinus (permanent sinusitis) sinuses regulations and air conditioning of the air which we breathe and to get the benefit of above we must have normal, well sized opened sinusitis and hence nose breathing is required, those who breathe from mouth, they have tendency to get more throat and lungs infections. Recurrent sinus infection, pollution, poor diet, spicy food, long term steam inhalation from nose, and allergies leads to thick discharge from nose. This thick mucus if stays in the sinuses, it leads to irritation of the sinus skin which is mucosa and this go on growing hence leads to permanent sinusitis this extra growth is called nasal polyps this is where patient needs surgical correction. If patient comes to nose surgeon at right time, doctor can revert his/her symptoms and surgery can be abandoned. But most of the time patient comes to us after trying everything which he/she hears from neighbors, tv channels, ayurvedic or homeopathic treatment. Sinusitis if patient does not take serious steps to correct might lead to cardiac symptoms, lung diseases, etc. Once there are nasal polyps you have to go for surgery immediately.

There are 2 things which should be taken into consideration. One is allergy n other is blocked nose. Allergy is your body s own response to an allergen. Identify allergen (dust, mite,fungus, fumes,smoke, grass, pollens,animal dander etc etx .start using mask when going outside. Consult a good ENT surgeon n get prescribed anti allergic nasal spray and tablets. If no relief after a decent 3-6 months course go for allergic testing and start SLIT (sublingual immunotherapy ). Second is blocked nose: if its due to allergy you will get relief by above. If its due to anatomical reasons like septal deviation or turbinate hypertrophy or polyp/nasal mass etc then surgery will help. Hope this helps. Take steam daily take Care.
