You are having pharyngitis/throat infection. Gargling with warm salt water is an effective way to treat a sore throat. Salt can even help kill the bacteria or virus causing pharyngitis. Mix three teaspoons of salt (preferably sea salt) in two cups of warm water. Gargle with this solution. Do not swallow it. Spit the water out after gargling. Do this several times daily for one to two days. Also take belladonna 30 - thrice daily for next 3 days.

My sister's daughter is having acromegaly disease and has been directed to undergo operation through the nose. Is there any chance of getting it treated through ayurvedic medicines?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Ayurveda
Ayurveda, Mumbai
Acromegaly is caused by over secretion of the pitutary gland in the brain, she has been diagnosed with secretory adenoma of the ant pitutary. The problem is she might have other hormonal over secretions too. Yes ayurvedic medications can be tried but I would suggest you go ahead with the surgery. Please consult in private.

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS

This is due to perforation in the ear drum and secondary bacterial infection. Surgery(myringoplasty) is done for correction of such perforation but before that ear should be dry. Start tab. Augmentin 625 mg three times a day, tab. Lcz 5 mg daily at bed time and oflobe-d ear drops 3-3-3 for 1 week. Don' t allow water to enter into ear. Let me know after that.

Happens generally after 2-3 hrs of bath or when I walk around under the sun for 10-15 mins and come back home, and its also happens when I drink something cold or stay in ac rooms for 10-15 mins.

Avoid triggers. If certain foods or odors seem to have triggered your migraines in the past, avoid them. Reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake and avoid tobacco. In general, establish a daily routine with regular sleep patterns and regular meals. In addition, try to control stress. Exercise regularly. Regular aerobic exercise reduces tension and can help prevent migraines. If your doctor agrees, choose any aerobic exercise you enjoy, including walking, swimming and cycling. Warm up slowly, however, because sudden, intense exercise can cause headaches. Obesity is also thought to be a factor in migraine headaches, and regular exercise can help you maintain a healthy weight or lose weight.

Hi I'm a 19 year old male and I'm suffering from canker sore, I know that it is mainly due to lack of water for me and sometimes I just forget to drink water at all due my concentration level I guess such as while playing games and doing interesting research or working on some project. Please tell me how to inculcate such a habit so that I never forget to drink water. Thanks.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only by making it a habit to carry water with you and drink every half hour Most canker sores clear on their own in one to two weeks. Treatments, if needed, include mouth rinses, pastes and medication..

Yes this is very harmful because you are using the side effect of the medicine for opening the nose, this causes rhinitis medicamentosa which is no response of the medicines to nose mucosa.
