This is due to lack of hydration in the mouth, avoid salty food, salt water gargling, and spicy food, this will further lead to dryness and wil cause throat pain. Start with shakes fruits and salads, just avoid juices, take fruit with its pulp.

I am 54 years old I have blocked nose problem for many years now, I take otrivin regularly and I cannot live without it. Due to this I have snoring and disturbed sleep every day leading to subsequent problems in day to day life. What is the permanent solution to it other than surgery which was told to be a temp relief solution as the same problem can reoccur.

Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Pune
Hello nasal blockage can be due to deviated nasal septum, hypertrophied turbinates, allergic conditions or infection. If you have been using otrivin for a long time that itself can cause rebound nasal congestion. You need to get examined by an ent surgeon to know whether any surgery can help you solve your problem permanently. If in any case you are not willing for surgery there is something called cpap machine for snoring & sleep apnoea. You have to get a polysomnography done before going for it. Lifestyle changes also help. No any particular medicine available for snoring. You need to stop using otrivin.

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.

Hi, I am having lower back pain. I exercise regularly. Sometime I feel dizziness sensation. Please advise.

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young to actually have persistent back pains. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. Dizziness should not be due to your back issue and for that you need to consult a neurophysician / general physician for further opinion. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Dear sir/mam I have a niece about 8 months now, She is suffering form cold from one month, Last week, a kind of puss was in her ears. When we consulted a doc. He said that it is due to the cold and we were giving her milk with her head laid down due to which some milk may have gone to her ears. She is taking medicines as well from last 3 weeks but it is not helping out. What should we do? We only give her milk and some times banana to eat. What else can we give her to eat, She has now got 2 teeth from both upper and lower jaw. Please help.

I don't think milk has anything to do. Pus in ear is because either by cold spreading to middle ear and secretion getting infected or else middle ear infection. Either way damaging the membrane. Now you have to keep the ears clean by cotton swab. No water inside during bathing, no oil or ear drops. You should consult ent specialist for direct examination, diagnosis treatment for congestion and infection.

Sore throat itself is not a big problem. In the initial phase, it can be very well controlled with antibiotics and analgesic tablets. Reduction in smelling sense is not related with sore throat. If problem persist then go for nose and throat examination.

It might be pus from an ear infection. It's compulsory that you see an ent doctor because ear infection can get complicated if not treated leading to difficulty in hearing, hole in the ear etc etc.

I am also feeling some 5%pain in right ear. Or you can say somewhere different in ear. I am diabetic.
Don't think major about it, since it's 5% I would recommend you not to use any medications. Since your diabetic, infections are common, might be an upper respiratory tract infection with ear involvement.
