Hi Although blood in the sputum may be one of the symptom of cancer but not in your case because it was in traces and only for the 1 st time. So nothing to worry. Occasionally it can be there. But stop smoking.

Kindly stop using otrivin. As, long usage of this, wil result in rebound nose block. You must be having dust allergy and sinusitis. Meet ENT specialist for antibiotic advice. Start steroid nasal spray for 2 month continuously. If no improvement in 3 weeks get a CT scan of PNS. Avoid dust, wear mask to reduce exposure while driving Do not take cold items With this we can keep disease under control. Remember there is no cure for dust allergy. We treat according to your symptoms. But with above treatment you can lead no rmal life without much problems.

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.

There are 2 things which should be taken into consideration. One is allergy n other is blocked nose. Allergy is your body s own response to an allergen. Identify allergen (dust, mite,fungus, fumes,smoke, grass, pollens,animal dander etc etx .start using mask when going outside. Consult a good ENT surgeon n get prescribed anti allergic nasal spray and tablets. If no relief after a decent 3-6 months course go for allergic testing and start SLIT (sublingual immunotherapy ). Second is blocked nose: if its due to allergy you will get relief by above. If its due to anatomical reasons like septal deviation or turbinate hypertrophy or polyp/nasal mass etc then surgery will help. Hope this helps. Take steam daily take Care.

I have severe sinus issues and in winters I get breathing issues. I did CT scan and PNS for that on which the doctors told me to go for operation. Is there any other remedy for that? Will the operation be able to cure sinus completely?

BHMS
Homeopath, Mumbai
Hi lybrate-user, Soft growths arising from mucous membrane of nose or paranasal sinus are referred as nasal polyps. They are painless and non cancerous growths. There is no specific cause leading to nasal polyps. However, certain factors including nasal allergies, nasal infections and chronic nasal catarrh are linked with formation of nasal polyps. Nasal polyps lead to symptoms of stuffy nose, post nasal drip, sneezing, runny nose, loss of smell and headaches Also if this is a seasonal allergy and sinus issue, you can go for Homeopathy. The most common treatment option suggested by conventional system in nasal polyps is surgical removal; But surgery offers a  temporary relief  in many cases. This is so because surgery is just excising the polyps and not taking care of the body’s tendency to form polyps. In most cases, Nasal polyps reappear after surgery. Homeopathy offers effective, natural and alternative treatment for nasal polyps. Homeopathic medicines promise a permanent cure in nasal polyps by treating the root cause.  Homeopathic medicines cure nasal polyps in a safe and gentle manner.

Tonsillectomy - When Should You Go For It?

MBBS, MS - ENT
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Tonsillectomy - When Should You Go For It?

The tonsils are soft tissue masses which are located at the back of your throat, usually at the pharynx. The tonsils are masses which are part of the lymphatic system that helps fight infections. However, tonsils can themselves become inflamed and cause a lot of pain. Tonsillectomy is a procedure to remove the tonsils and relieve pain.

Why is tonsillectomy performed?
A few decades back, tonsillectomy was a routine surgery performed to relieve any pain within the tonsils. This method of treatment however has changed over the past few decades as pain medications for inflammation have improved vastly. However, tonsillitis is still performed in many cases wherein it tends to cause acute problems. Some of the cases it is applicable in are:

  1. Chronic bad breath problems caused by recurrent inflammation of the tonsils
  2. Recurrent sore throats caused by tonsillitis
  3. It is also done along with dental surgery for correcting teeth with imperfect positioning
  4. Abscess formation in the mouth
  5. Upper airway being obstructed due to inflammation, thus causing difficulty with sleeping, snoring, or causing sleep apnea (irregular breathing during sleep)
  6. Ear infections being regularly caused by inflammation of the tonsils

Other reasons why it may be recommended
Tonsillectomy may be also be recommended when there are no indications of problems but tonsillitis and other infections keep cropping up too regularly. This affects children and can make them sick or keep them in pain regularly. Some of these other indications are mentioned below:

  1. Tonsil infections and inflammations happening too frequently within a year
  2. Tonsillitis is caused by bacterial infection wherein the antibiotics aren’t effective
  3. Formation of pus in the form of an abscess within or around the tonsils which keep forming even after repeated drainage or administering antibiotics

Possible complications and risks
Like any other form of surgery, tonsillectomy has certain risks associated with it as well. However, these are very rare. Some of these risks and complications are mentioned as follows –

  1. Swelling of the mouth: The tongue and the soft palate or the roof of the mouth may swell, resulting in breathing difficulties an few hours after the surgery.
  2. Infection: As is the case with any surgery, infections may occur in rare cases, which may require further treatment.
  3. Adverse reactions to anesthetics: Many patients exhibit an adverse reaction to anesthetics and may develop symptoms such as a headache, nausea, muscle soreness and frequent vomiting.
  4. Bleeding during surgery or healing: Although it is rare, bleeding during and after surgery has been reported after all sorts of procedures and it may occur with tonsillectomy as well. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ENT specialist.
