Mr. Lybrate-user, you asked about your problems related to sinusitis for two years and want to go for operation.

Avoid nose picking or forceful nose blowing. Instill decongestant nasal drops 2-3 times daily and apply antibiotic ointment locally. You should also consult a good ENT doctor to know the cause of bleeding and further management.

No. Long standing or congenital hearing loss is incurable. You can go infor hearing aid if there is some hearing. And you should be careful about your only functional ear.

Hi, if you want your ears, dont listen to loud music and that too from your headphones. Using headphones, is bad in itself and to worsen it, you were listening to loud music. This can lead to something as bad as rupture of your ear drums leading to permanent deafness. As for your current pain, you can take paracetamol tablet to subside the pain.

If you don't have fever than continue with home remedies add betakind gargles, mild analgesics like paracetamol. It is very important to avoid irritants like dust smokes perfumes pollutants and to avoid spicy fried chilled junk food. Stop smoking. It should help you.

What's the Link Between Sinuses and Headaches?

Link Between Sinuses and Headaches

Suffering from splitting headaches? The remedy to it can only be found once the cause behind it is identified. Everything from migraines to stomach infections can be the cause of your headaches. But it is not impossible to tell the difference between the different aches. You have to notice the other symptoms that accompany your headache to understand what is causing the pain.

Symptoms of sinus headaches

When you have the following problems along with your headache you can be sure it is being caused by your sinus:

- Pain in the head, face and nose
- Pain in the eyes
- Stuffy or blocked nose along with the pain
- Accompanying nasal allergies and bouts of sneezing
- Inability to smell

Understanding sinuses

The sinuses comprise of a rather sizable cavity present behind your cheekbones, bridge of your nose and forehead. Generally, the fluid in the region gets drained through the nose. But due to infection, allergic reactions and tumors the cavity can get blocked and also get inflamed. The inflammation is caused by an increase in mucus production, which can lead to the nasal cavity being blocked. The blockage stops the fluids from draining and the sinuses get even more inflamed. When the cavity gets inflamed it starts pressuring the cheekbones, nose bridge and forehead and eyes.

Why does it ache?

The building up of the pressure on the cheekbones, nose bridge and forehead causes the area to start hurting. Thus, when one has a headache originating from inflamed sinuses, the pain is not just isolated to the forehead. The pain in the nose is a sure shot sign that the headache is caused by the inflammation of the sinuses.

Not just another chronic ache

Most people mistake any chronic headache as a sinus problem. But mostly such aches are caused by migraines and stress. If you have a prolonged headache as well as fever you are sure to have a sinus ache instead of any other chronic headache.

Make it better

Once you have identified the headache as a sinus ache you can start the treatment. Steam inhalation helps clear the sinuses, reducing the pain almost immediately. If steam inhalation does not help, you might have a severe sinus infection. In such cases, it is best to visit a doctor to understand the extent of the infection. The doctor is likely to prescribe antibiotics for the remedy of the infection. Even if you are aware of what medicines to take for sinus infections it is best to get checked by a medical professional before you start popping pills since the headache might just be due to some other causes as well.

I was born during month of january, cold month in chennai and my mother used to tell at the time of birth itself I am suffered from cold. Till today I am suffering from cold and when I took ct scan, doctor said there is small projections in my nose i. E, sinus and it should be operated by laser treatment. They also said if you do operation also again the sinus will formed. Over many years when I received headache on daily basis I used to take amoxillin, paracetamol and avil. After some one advised that kindney problem will come if you use paracetamol. The some years I used otrivin o nasal drops. They many of them advised that there is steroid in the otrivin o which leads to lot of side effect. Some years I used siddha. Now I switched on to homeopathy where small tablets and tincture is given as oral tablets and liquids. Many of them told me that till death it will be there and there is no treatment. Still I am suffering from sinus where the cold will be formed on every half hour and I use to let it out by giving pressure to nose and cleaning the cold with fingers inserting in the nose which leads to oversize of my nose also. I think I am suffering for sinus for the past 46 years i. E, my age. I kindly request to give advise on what to do?

It is likely that fluid of cold is collected behind your eardrum. You need to consult an ent surgeon at the earliest to treat it. Because early treatment increases chances of cure with medicines. Later you start treatment more the chance of a minor surgery to remove fluid behind eardrum. By the time you visit ent surgeon the antihistamines and decongestants for cough and cold. Take steam inhalation twice a day. Do not blow your nose forcefully.

You must take her to a nearby ENT doctor. It is possible the insect may still be in the ear canal and may need to be removed. The ear canal will also need to be cleaned out because the milk may cause subsequent infection. Regards.
