I think you have wax deposit in your ear. Put one or two drops of lukewarm coconut oil in your ear while you are lying down for sleep. In the morning just remove the wax with the earbud.

It occurs mostly while decending down. Keep chewing gum with you. Before decending, try sips of hot water. 30 minutes before, use otrivin nasal spray in both the nose. Also, keep chew chewing gum while the plane is landing. Also do Valaslva frequently when you have ear pain.

Please sleep sideways and not flat/supine position. Also check if you are having nasal polyp/sinusitis -- if so that needs to be treated to relieve your problem. Get back to me in private for the treatment of the above. Till the time take ammon carb 30 - twice daily for next 7 days and revert back.

My sister is 18 years old. Blood came from her nose for 2 times. What should she do? What is the problem.

Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Guwahati
Hello and welcome to lybrate. Your sister's epistaxis is might be due to dry nose and itching die to allergy. Finger pricking is most common. Anyway using botroclot drop combined with nasvion-s drop might relieve the symptoms. If bleeding continues, she might need help of an ent surgeon. Thanks.

You maybe suffering from viral or allergic rhinitis and pharyngitis. You need to avoid the cause of your allergies and also take anti allergy medications. Please consult for prescription. If you have an infection and have fever you will need to do a course of antibiotics. For now do warm saline gargle and steam inhalation 3 times a day.

Snoring: Snoring is mainly due to Vibration of Pharyngeal parts mainly soft palate parapharyngeal bands base of tongue, Adenoids and polyps in nose etc and also Deviated nasal septum plays the role. It is better to Go for sleep study test and Endoscopy of Nose and Throat in Awake and sleeping pt. Also MRI during sleep helps to come to Diagnosis. Sleep Ap machine can help the pt . Also surgery of Nasal polyp, Deviated Nasal Septum, Tonsils and Adenoids, Soft palate and Base tongue can help to cure or reduce the Snoring….

Offlate, I am snoring loudly during night sleep. How to reduce it? What leads to snoring?

Dear Lybrate user. This problem is due to increased mucous and decreased elasticity of the respiratory track. So follow few basic things so that you get better results in short period of time…. 1) take solid diet two times in a day and liquid diet two times in a day. 2) drink only 100-150 ml of lukewarm water during meals …. 3) don’t drink water one hour before meals and one hour after meal…4) avoid oily, spicy, salty, junk, fast, fermented and stale foods…. 5) avoid late night sleeping habits …. 6) do anuloma viloma pranayam regularly early in the morning. A) TAKE 30 ml of divya shawasari pravahi (PATANJALI AYURVEDA) along with 30 ml of lukewarm water after meals, early in the morning on empty stomach and at night before sleep. B) take 2 tablets of SWAS-KASA-CHINTAMANI RASA, early in the morning on empty stomach and at night before sleep. C) take 2-2 tablets of sutshekhar rasa and aarogyawardhini vati after meals. Do all these things for 30 days. This formulation of treatment is effective. Consult to me for further suggestions. THANKS.
