Of course, the bleeding is because of the inhaling. The lining has been sufficiently damaged to cause a rupture in her nasal blood vessel. The pungent smell of whitener can not only erase print on paper, but also memory from the human brain. The toluene and trychloroethane help to intoxicate and apparently the addicts experience a kick for five to eight hours, depending on the intensity and quantity of the inhalation. According to the experts, the hydrocarbons in the deadly solvents can infuse easily with the blood and can affect the central nervous system of a person. Uncharacteristic behaviors such as mood swings and insomnia are some of the reported symptoms of solvent addiction and it may results in kidney, liver and lung damage. And what's more, just like drug addiction, at a point of unavailability of whiteners, the victims will move on to other intoxicant substances like mosquito repellents, thinners, nail polish removers etc. Which are equally, if not more, harmful. She needs to go for counseling and identify why she is resorting to this pleasure inducement and what pain she is covering up. If she is severely into it she may need detoxification and counseling at the same time. Some medication may be administered to ease the initial struggle but she could resolve it soon she resorts to other drugs or drinks to meet her obsessive-compulsive need for gratification.

U should not use otrivin nasal drops bcz on long term use causes side effect in form of rebound phenomenon called rhinitis medicamentosa that means persistent nasal block for which it is used. Instead of that use flomist nasal spray twice a day for 2 weeks and steam inhalation also twice a day.

I have a blood in my nose after working hard in last 10 days what can I do?

PG Hom, London, BHMS

Ask Free Question
Hi , have you been working under the sun? or in lot of heat? bleeding from the nose happens because of being in too much heat for long hours or it can even happen because of over exertion. Whenever you get bleeding, you sit on a chair, bend forward a bit, pinch your nose and breathe through the mouth. Hard pressure will stop the bleeding. Other option is sit on a chair and bend forward a bit and apply ice in between your eyebrows. If the bleeding continues after this too, you will need a course of antibiotics.

Vertigo, hepatitis b and count of 12000. The cell count is a little on higher side but if there is no sign of infection like fever, cough, urinary problem then you may overlook this temporarily. About hepatitis b, if it is conclusive by the positive lab result of australia antigen, then you only have to keep an eye over the state of your liver and any symptom related with it. About vertigo, you have to make certain the side on which you get the feeling of giddiness on changing posture. A maneuver called epley maneuver is helpful in curing this problem. To do this maneuver you need the help of another person who can follow and do the steps shown in this maneuver. You can see the demo of this maneuver on youtube by typing epley in search bar.
