A middle ear infection (otitis media) can cause some intense pain, and can effect your hearing. You likely have (infected) fluid building up behind your eardrum, causing pressure and pain. Treatment consists of ear-drops and some antibiotics.

What is the antibiotic medicine for cold and throat pain that can be cured fast.

MD - Community Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
What is the antibiotic medicine for cold and throat pain that can be cured fast.
Hello, Cold usually happens to weather/ season change/ exposure to particular allergen. If you have symptoms like sneezing, running nose, blocked nose, headache, may be mild fever, please follow - 1. Adequate rest, proper sleep, and healthy diet is the key treatment to cold/ coryza. 2. Drink lots of fluids and eat homemade food. 3. Drink hot beverages (tea/ coffee) to relieve nasal congestion. 4. Take steam inhalation carefully by steam inhaler twice a day for 2-3 days 5. Blow Your Nose to sniff mucus out. 6. Take steamy shower. Steamy showers moisturize your nasal passages and relax you. 7. If you have sore throat, do warm saline gargles 2-3 times a day till relief of symptoms. 8. Sleep with an Extra Pillow Under Your Head. This will help with the drainage of nasal passages. 9. Take Tablet Levocetrizine 5 mg tablet once daily after food for 3 days, 10. In case of associated headache, bodyache, mild fever, or sore throat, instead of Levocetrizine, take Tablet Sinarest one tablet 3 times daily after food for 3 days. Consult again if symptoms persist or worsen. ***Get Well Soon*** “Food is the best ever medicine, we have, so do not forget to eat homemade breakfast, make it a habit.”

Mouth ulcers are usually caused because of continuous exposure to irritants and infections. First stop tobacco. That must be the reason for your throat ulcers. If it persists, then see a competent general physician.

Snoring, How to cure?

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS
Homeopath,
Snoring is very common Problem now these days. Firstly we should know what snoring is. People who snore often have too much throat and nasal tissue. The position of your tongue can also get in the way of smooth breathing. Evaluating how and when you snore will help you pinpoint whether the cause of your snoring is within your control or not. Snoring happens when you can't move air freely through your nose and mouth during sleep. Often caused by the narrowing of your airway, either from poor sleep posture or abnormalities of the soft tissues in your throat. A narrow airway gets in the way of smooth breathing and creates the sound of snoring. In market plenty of anti snoring equipments are there. But not very effective. In homoeopathy we have very effective and good medicines for snoring.

I am not against" looking good" neither am I against cosmetic surgeries but I would suggest you to reconsider your decision. If your face looks disfigured you may surely go ahead, but if it is just a minor deviation from normal it does not make much of a difference to your personality as such. By the way, you have all sorts of cosmetic surgeons and skin specialists available who can give you relevant options. Most of the cosmetic surgeries are irreversible. There are instances of surgeries that did not go up to the clients expectations or even were against expectations. So look before you leap. Take care.

Use of headphones cannot cause a tear in the eardrum, unless you have been exposed to sudden very loud sound. Harsh use of earbuds can lead to injury to the eardrum. Rupture of the eardrum & bleedung from the ear can also result from ear infections.

It might have caused damage to the ear drum. Now keep your ear dry and don't use any ear drops. Start tab. Advent 625 mg three times a day, tab. Rantac 150 mg twice a day (empty stomach) and tab. Chymoral plus twice a day for 1 week. Get an audiometry (hearing test) done and send the report.

Although in children nose bleed in common due to frequent fingering in the nose, but sometimes it can be due to any mass or polyp in the nose or behind the nose that can cause eustachian tube blockage and lead to hearing loss thats why she advised u these investigations.
