Super Fact of the Day: An hour of wearing headphones can see the bacteria count increase in your ear by 700 times!

When you wear a pair of headphones, you end up blocking the entry of natural air into your ear, which causes bacteria to increase by 700 times inside within an hour! As a result, your eardrums respond with pain or hearing loss, as they are unable to bear the invasion of bacteria in such huge numbers.

Would you like to share this interesting fact with family or friends? go ahead and share!

I am 70 year old male and have been suffering from pharyngitis for over 18 years now. I have not found a cure yet despite my unremitting efforts. The pain on both sides of my throat are severe at times and I am forced to rely on analgesic and anti-histamine medicines. Please help me overcome this suffering.

I think you may have some problem in nose - either deviated nasal septum or sinus problem. Due to this problem you may have chronic post-nasal discharge wich is causing recurrent pharyngitis. So, it is my advice to take ct scan of paranasal sinuses to find nasal cause.

Today, we have listed for you the top few foods, which will give you enough nutrients to fight off illnesses and fight that annoying sore throat. 1. Banana 2. Chicken soup 3. Lemon juice and honey mixture 4. Scrambled eggs or egg whites 5. Ginger, or honey tea 6. Oatmeal. 7. Sage 8. Whole wheat pasta 9. Boiled carrots.

What precautions should be taken to check sinus? I have this dust allergy which causes flowing nose and frequent sneeches.

Hi The best way to maintain the sinuses clean is by performing jal neeti with salt water every morning. If that is difficult then using a pressurised spray of salt water in the nose 3-5 times a day is very helpful. You can try the brand solspre or physiomer whichever is easily available. Use it for 3 weeks at least.

If you have repeated (recurring) tonsillitis you may wonder about having your tonsils removed. Guidelines suggest it may be an option to have your tonsils removed (tonsillectomy) if you: have had seven or more episodes of tonsillitis in the preceding year; or five or more such episodes in each of the preceding two years. Or three or more such episodes in each of the preceding three years.

Bad smell in the house could be because of sinusitis or atrophic rhinitis. You would benefit from getting a ct scan of the sinus to know the nature of the problem so that we can start to treat it. Regards

Thank you for writing to us. Please note the following for your condition: eat thin slices of raw, fresh ginger at regular intervals. To enhance the taste, you can sprinkle a little salt and lemon juice on it. Another option is to simmer 1 tablespoon of finely chopped ginger in a cup of hot water for 10 minutes. Strain and add honey. Drink this up to 3 times a day. Sucking on ginger candy is also helpful. Thanks.
