I have a frequent problem of nose bleeding on hot summer days. What should I do to avoid it?

MS - ENT
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Rajkot
" once there is bleeding, sit up straight and lean forward slightly. Don't lie down or tilt the head backward. With thumb and index finger, firmly pinch the nose just below the bone up against the face. Apply pressure for 5 minutes. Time yourself with a clock. If bleeding continues after 5 minutes, repeat the process" for prevention, use glycerin nasal drops.

Earache? before starting any treatment you require to have micro exam of ear. Also if nothing abnormal it may be referred pain of toothache or tonsillitis or any infective lesion in throat. Also sinus problem can give rise to ear ache.

Ulcers in mouth: It is also known as aphthous ulcers. They are very painful and restrict chewing and swallowing due to pain. Mainly it is due to Dyspepsia, consumption of heavy Antibiotics which kills normal Bacterial flora which makes vit B complex for our body. It is also due to mental tension. I have seen so many exam going students having ulcers in mouth and when exam is over it is cured . It is different from cancer ulcer as cancer ulcer is not painful and it doesn?t heal. High dose of Vit B , pain killing oral paste, Treatment of constipation, Stoppage of Heavy antibiotics added to it , etc as per requirement helps the patient.

U seem to be having anxiety disorder, kindly consult a psychiatrist and get treated. Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. Restlessness or feeling wound-up or on edge being easily fatigued difficulty concentrating or having their minds go blank irritability muscle tension difficulty controlling the worry sleep problems (difficulty falling or staying asleep or restless, unsatisfying sleep) these are some of the symptoms.

I have vertigo since 2014. Since that year after that first attack, I had another attack in July but after 3 days it was gone. Last August 9 I had another vertigo attack and for 2-3 days I couldn't move. After that I felt better. I am able to move around but I feel not normal as before. Actually the vertigo didn't really leave me. I have moves that will just let me feel turning around. I also can't sleep lying down flat in bed. What should I do. I want to totally be cured and let this vertigo totally leave me.

Dizziness or giddiness or Vertigo…. Is usually due to ear labyrinthine problem. Anti vertigo tabs and vitamin B 12 can help you. You require to go for Ear examination. Pure tone and Impedence audiometry, may require CT scan and stepping test (cranio corpography) to come to proper diagnosis. Or come to me personally.

Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment.
