I have ear pain from two days. Please help me what should I do ?
Hello and thanks for writing. I can understand your concern and would try to help you in the best possible way. Ear pain may suggest either an infection or trauma or problems with jaw or flu. You need to answer a few more questions pertaining to your problem to help understand the nature of your illness in a better way. I suggest you consult a doctor who may devise a diagnostic plan for you depending upon your history. In the mean while I suggest you start steam inhalations and keep you ears dry as much as possible to help you with the pain.

I am suffering with frequent problem of tonsil. Any medicine to treat this disease permanently.

Hello lybrate user, permanent cure is only surgical, it is very easy procedure, get it done by any ent specialist. If you opt for medical management there will be exacerbation's when ever you got exposed to triggering factors like exposure to cold climate/season, eating cooled stuff like ice cream, drinks etc. Use salt water gargil (mix salt in luke warm water and put in mouth, raise you r chin and try make small sound with out swallow in water). This is very good home remedy. Salt water acts as antiseptic and minimises the chance of infection/exacerbation of tonsillitis. If it is severe take antibiotics as advised by doctor. Do not use over the counter antibiotics that they may trigger resistance.

This must be due to tonsil enlargement most of the time, do not worry et al, if it is one sided than no need to go for surgery unless it is harming you with fever, body ache, chills, and weakness.

Relaxation is the key. Lie on a bed, stomach down, with head turned and arms hanging over the side. Take a deep breath, hold it for 10 to 15 seconds, exhale slowly. After a few repeats, rest for several minutes before you get up. • If you can elicit the help of your partner, stand against the wall and ask your partner to place a fist lightly in the soft area just under your breastbone. Take a few deep breaths, and on the last one, exhale completely. Your partner should then press gently but firmly to help expel air from your lungs.

Hi, you have the problem of chronic gastritis as per the symptoms that you have described, though is better to once diagnose the exact problem by taking a consultation of gastroenterolgist. If you already have diagnosis with you then kindly disclose it so that I can guide you more appropriately. Moreover whatever the final diagnosis may be as per your symptoms you will be always prescribed medicines like omeprazole and its similar compositions which may help you temporarily but will not cure, also long term gastritis may lead to deeper and serious complaints like gastric ulcer and similar which then takes longer time to get treated, it is better to intervene as early as possible. Homeopathy can help you to cure this problem permanently after proper case taking. Meanwhile you can make little lifestyle and dietary changes as follows: 1. Drink plenty of water, fruits and salads. 2. Avoid non-vegetarian food as much as possible and strict no to red meat. 3. Dont remain hungry for too long, keep taking frequent small meals rather that overloading your stomach after long gaps. 4. Dont drink cold water during and after meals as it slows down digestion process. Drink half to 1 glass of normal water during meals and after meals dont drink water for atleast 1 hour and still if you want you can take lukewarm water after meals. 5. Keep an interval of at least 2 hours between your dinner and retiring to bed. 6. Avoid excessive spicy, fried and fatty food. 7 do exercises like brisk morning walk or evening walk before dinner, if after dinner, then walk after 1-to 1.5 hours, do not walk immediately after meals.
