I am 20years old boy and from last 3 days, I am suffering from continuous bleeding from my nose. I have tried many home-made remedies but none of it helped me. This problem generally appears in summer, but I'm afraid this time because its winter. please help me.

Hi, As there are many causes of nosebleed, need to find out the exact cause to advise you the right medication: Trauma to the nose (nose picking, foreign bodies, forceful nose blowing). The most common cause of a nose bleed is drying of the nasal membranes. Tumors, particularly malignant tumor of the nose or sinuses. The incidence of nosebleeds is higher during the colder winter months when upper respiratory infections are more frequent, and the temperature and humidity fluctuate more dramatically. Use of “blood thinning medications” called anti coagulants. Recurrent nosebleeds may be a symptom of an underlying disorder such as high blood pressure. Inflammation of the nose or sinuses and cold may cause a nose bleed. Deviated septum (when the partition between your nose is crooked), foreign objects in the nose, or other nasal obstruction may also cause nosebleeds. Medication: Start taking homoeopathic medicine - Aconite 30 and Arnica 30 - both 3 times a day for 2 weeks, Get back to me.

I am 57 suffering from severe back pain for last 2 yrs, getting up in the morning from bed is difficult, doing some exercises, but of very little use. Also what is best medicene for severe sort of dry cough with throat-pain.

You get stiffness in your back is due to your muscle weakness. Also exercises are not same for everyone. Do back strengthening exercises. So avoid forward bending exercises. Also do yogasana specific for back pain. Chewing liquorice can help to reduce sore throat.

I am 28 years old male weighing around 74 kg i.e. Not over weight, I make strange loud groaning sounds from throat and from my teeth as well while sleeping all the time. Whats wrong with me and how do I stop making this sound.

Ayurveda, Hyderabad
74 kg is not over weight but its not the ideal weight please try to reduce 10 kg. Nasal obstruction is one of the cause for snoring so consult one ent and get examined for nasal polyps or inflamed turbinates. Even you can use Ayurveda medicine for nasal ailments for this visit ayu doctor near your place.

These are some methods & instruction for releif in snoring: • Exercise daily and running, jogging. Do long breathing exercise pranayam daily. • Clear nasal passage (nose) before sleeping. You can take steam for 2 - 3 minutes to clear the passage. • Change your sleeping position, elevate your pillow slightly while sleeping. • Sleep on a side not on back. • Avoid smoking and excess drinking alcohol.

A) take 30 ml of ojus syrup along with 30 ml of lukewarm water after meals. B) take 30 ml of fresh lemon juice along with 15 ml of honey before meals. C) take 30 ml of aloe vera juice along with 30 ml of lukewarm water at night before sleep. Do all these things for thirty days and reply me for further suggestions. Thanks.

I have 101 temperature from last tree days and my tonsils are too much infected. I did gargle with disprin many time sometimes I feel better but my temperature is as it is. What should I do?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, Tonsillitis is inflammation of the tonsils most commonly caused by viral or bacterial infection. Tonsillitis is common, especially in children. The condition can occur occasionally or recur frequently. Under normal circumstances, as viruses and bacteria enter the body through the nose and mouth, they are filtered in the tonsils. Within the tonsils, white blood cells of the immune system destroy the viruses or bacteria by producing inflammation which also lead to fever. The infection may also be present in the throat and surrounding areas, causing inflammation of the pharynx. Medication: With the help of homoeopathic medication, the surgery can be avoided! Take Schwabe’s Alpha-Tons/ thrice a day daily for 4 weeks. Warm salt water gargle is recommended. Cover your throat with a stole.

Hello doctor my mother having sinus problem. So she cannot able to cook the masala smell creates sneeze and running nose. What is the best remedy?

MBBS, MS - ENT
ENT Specialist, Ghaziabad
Hello lybrate-user. From the brief description that you've provided, your mother complaint seems to be an allergic disorder and not sinusitis. However recurrent episodes of allergies can eventually lead to sinusitis as well. Wearing a simple mask is a good option, if it can provide relief. Also use exhausts and proper ventilation in the kitchen. If still not feeling well. Then anti allergic tablets or nasal spray can be used.

Dear Lybrate user, It is difficult to find out the reason for severe cramps, specially without examination and not knowing the complete history. The best time to conceive would be 14 days before the next menstrual date; 3 days before and 1 day after that i.e. 13 - 17 days before the expected date of next period. It would have been 12th to 16th of October in the present cycle.

For about a month I've a problem with my throat. I always get some very thin mucous which I am clearing every time. The situation worsens if I smoke. Not very comfortable at all with my throat. I sense some irritation always. No blood or nothing if I spit the mucous. As so in as I get up in the morning it is fine. As the day goes in it worsens. Please advise.

Yes dear this is due to lack of protective layer in the mouth, start taking banana and shakes, iron rich diet, this will help you in regaining the local immunity in the mouth, and secondly avoid smoking and start taking apple juice which will help you in overcome the withdrawal symptoms of smoking

Hi throat cancer without any risk factors like smoking, tobacco chewing ,reverse smoking is less likely. So if you want to be sure what exactly is wrong consult an ent surgeon and seek proper advise.

I am 20 years old male suffering from neck veins pain from about 4-5 days and while palpating my throat I'm feeling something below my chin something like very small gland. Please tell me some medicine to relief my neck pain.

MBBS, MS - ENT
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Ahmedabad
If the pain is not very severe then just improve your head and neck posture. Do not keep your head and neck in same position for 20-30 minutes. Apply local pain relieving ointment. Regarding swelling below chin you need to consult an ent surgeon to decide weather you need some tests or you can ignore it.

Dear your sons allergy is curable with proper case taking and homoeopathic treatment. Allergy is due to altered immunity. So the treatment should be directed to balance this alteration which can be acheived with right homoeopathy. Along with this blood should be checked for eosinophil count and ige.

Hello DR's, My TSH level was 11 during my 3rd month of pregnancy. I was medicated to have thyrox 2.5 and am having now at 6 months after delivery. I have three qs regarding this 1. I lost my baby due to trisomy 18. Will this thyroid not detected before pregnancy could cause this? 2. Due to need to continue the tablet even now? 3. Am taking it regularly, but for the past two days I feel a pain in throat, what can be reason?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
I am rather surprised that thyroid testing was not done before pregnancy. Because it is now recommended that every female desirous of having a baby must get her thyroid test done. If tsh levels are high particularly in first trimester then embryonic development is definitely affected, causing congenital defects. Secondly during pregnancy if tsh is high there can be affection to fetal development, misscarriage or fetal death. So it is recommended that tsh levels should be maintained between 0.1 to 2 even before expected conception. Plus through out the pregnancy levels should be: 1st trimester 0.1 to 2.5, 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3 and 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.5 milli units. If these levels exceed then above mentioned problems are a possibility.
