I have been diagnosed with allergic rhinitis and sinusitis (ethmoid as well as frontal), 15 years back. I tend to have sneezing, runny nose, and nasal congestion frequently. I have been taking cetirizine 10 mg 1 tab every day for more than 10 years. Started consulting a homeopath (9 months back and continuous consultations with him) and my symptoms improved and I was able to cut down the cetirizine to half tablet every other day. I started having the symptoms (sneeze, runny nose, severe nasal congestion, and mild headache) for the last 10 days. Any long term solution?

Bcz your problem is of long duration you should get a ct scan done of nose and pns to see any underlying pathology like polyps or polypoidal mucosa in nose. By the time you can use tab. Allegra-m daily at bed time and flomist nasal spray twice a day. Do steam inhalation twice a day.

Hi lybrate-user. Please elaborate your complaints. Are you having sore throat also along with ear pain. And is fever also there. Pls don't put oil in your ear everytime you have ear pain. Because it can be due to varied reasons. Ear infection. Hole in the ear drum. Serious ear disease etc. So I would strongly suggest you visit an ent surgeon for the same. As all ear pain case are not due to wax.

Hello, i'm 19 years old, male. I have irritation in my ear like its full and itchy. When I breathe out air passes out of my ear and like it is blocked. I have consulted two ent specialists they just say, your ear canal is fine! this problem happens at least once in a to days. Please help.

MS , MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Bangalore
Hi,As both ent surgeons whom you have meet have told that your ear canal is fine then the problem could be in the skin of the canal and there could be dermatitis or itchy skin,the other problem of air gushing into the ear and blocked sensation in the ear could be due to some problem in the the nasal end of eustachian tube. Regards to itchy skin you should stop putting buds or things into the ear and use steroid based ear drops for about three to four weeks. Regards to the other problem you needed to be examined once.

Perichondritis - Can Sports Injuries Lead to it?

MS - ENT, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Bangalore
Perichondritis - Can Sports Injuries Lead to it?

Perichondritis is an infection that occurs in the tissues surrounding the cartilage of the outer ear which provide nourishment to the cartilage. It is also known as auricular Perichondritis. In some cases, the immune system of the body may turn dysfunctional and start to destroy these tissues. Such a medical condition is then known as relapsing Perichondritis.

It is usually caused when the tissues experience trauma. Certain causes are:
1. It may occur after a surgery due to surgical trauma
2. Certain sports injuries
3. Ear piercing increases the risk of this infection
4. Any burn, laceration and cuts around the outer ear
5. If you have untreated ear condition such as swimmer’s ear (infection in the outer canal of the ear)

The symptoms of Perichondritis are:
1. You may experience swelling and redness in the affected area
2. You may have a fever
3. Pus may develop in the affected area
4. In some cases, the ear structure may be deformed
In addition to the above symptoms, relapsing Perichondritis may cause hearing loss, sudden weight loss, pain in your muscles and complications in your respiratory system.

Treatment
The treatment of Perichondritis usually involves antibiotics. Antibiotics are administered depending on the severity of the symptoms. If there is trapped pus involved, then surgery may be required to treat the condition. An incision is made in the affected area and then the pus is drained out. If the infection is extremely severe resulting in deformity of the ear, then parts of the ear might have to be amputated. Plastic surgery may also be used to correct the shape of the ear.

In case of relapsing Perichondritis, certain steroid medications are administered to suppress the immune system to prevent it from attacking the tissues. There are some preventive measures, which you can employ to avoid Perichondritis. Avoid piercing your ear to reduce chances of contracting this infection. Also, if you have conditions such as swimmer’s ear, then make sure it is treated at the earliest.

There may be two reasons. Your injection history and alcohol abuse. And in the morning its natural to have a dry mouth. So just have a citrous intake. Eg. Orange, lemon, pinepple or tablet limcee. These things will help increasing your salivation.

Hello Doctor, I have a habit of snoring while sleeping. It starts from the throat and is loud. How can I prevent this?

MBBS, Diploma in Otorhinolaryngology (DLO)
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Bangalore
It has to be taken seriously if you have disturbed sleep & choking spells awakening you in the night & additionally having daytime drowsiness, affecting the quality of your work. Losing weight can help if above mentioned complications are absent. Best go to the nearest ENT for proper evidence based assessment & treatment.

I observed intermittent swelling on my left side throat. When I had a checkup, I was told that there is a problem with gland responsible for saliva secretion. It secretes saliva but couldn' t excrete it & hence its getting swollen whenever I taste something. Is this normal? what would be the cause & solution? I do not having smoking/drinking habits

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
This may be due to infection in the gland (sialadenitis) or due to stone formation (calculus) in the duct of gland that opens into mouth. Get an ultrasound done of this area and send the report. If there is stone it will require surgery. Avoid spicy food and keep good oral hygiene.

If symptoms are sneezing, running nose, blocked nose 1. Take proper rest/ lot of fluids 2. Take proper home made diet. 3. Steam inhalation carefully by steam inhaler twice a day for 2-3 days frequent/ continuous cough cold may be because of many reasons like: 1. Any ent problem like dns polyp sinusitis 2. Low immunity 3. Allergic condition so you need to consult ENT doctor for proper examination and further management There are some supplement available that can be start after personal consultation and these supplement can reduce severity and no. of episodes of this problem
