What I do if rain water goes in my ears. I don't have time to go for a doctor. What I can do at home? I feel headache in my head nd feel pain in my nose .plz help me.

Hi, try to wipe out the water first with an ear bud as cotton in bud will absorb the water. Then lie down on the same side on which side water is in ear on bed pillow on below the ear and give few gentle jerks on the pillow so that with the gravitational force and jerks, water will flow down out of the ear. Again wipe out the remaining left water with an ear bud carefully. After this get a homoeopathic medicine by the name of mullein oil/ pour 2 drops of this in the affected ear, leave it for few minutes. It will make clear the ear. At last, visit an ent specialist to get an ear check-up.

I am 27 years old male, whenever I sleep, I start snoring, I think I snore from last 4-5 years, but recently my friends tell me that I snore very loudly now. Also, I feel fatigue and lack of energy even in the morning, I am not sure if these are relevant. Also, sometimes I feel weakness and pain in leg in morning. Please suggest.

Hi, please follow these tips to stop snoring: - reduce your weight if you are obese. - perform pranayama (breathing exercises) everyday. - quit smoking which irritates the mucosal layer of the nose and throat and causes blockage and results in snoring. - quit alcohol and sedatives which relax the throat muscles and results in snoring. - sleep on sides instead on back. - elevate the head by using a thick pillow which eases the breathing. - clear the nose before going to bed. - establish regular sleep pattern. - keep the bedroom air moist by using humidifier; as dry air irritates the mucosal membrane in the nose and throat. - perform throat exercises like repeating the vowels a, e, i, o, you loudly for 2-3 mins few times a day or keeping the tongue behind the teeth and moving it backwards - 3-4 times a day. - anti snoring appliances can also be used.

Increase in Fungal infections of Ear with arrival of Monsoon Fungal infection of ear canal, also called as Otomycosis, is a superficial fungal infection of the external auditory canal. It is the most frequently encountered fungal infection in ear, nose and throat clinics. The organisms responsible for this clinical entity are usually fungi especially A. Niger. The fungi are usually secondary invaders of tissue already rendered susceptible by bacterial infections; physical injury or excessive accumulation of wax in the external auditory canal. The fungus tends to grow in humid, dark and warm areas and ear canal is one of the best places, especially in the rainy season. Excessive use of antibiotic ear drops may also be a cause of fungal infection of the ear. The fungal infection of the ear canal usually presents with a itching, irritation, discomfort, pain and scanty discharge from the affected ear. Patients also complain of feeling of blockage in the ear due to collection of fungal material in the canal. Sometimes irritation is so severe that patients tend to insert pins or sharp material in the canal leading to injury or bleeding from the canal. Pruritus and discharge are the most common symptoms which are usually unilateral but bilateral involvement is also been seen. There is greenish or black fuzzy growth on in the canal resembling wet ‘blotting paper with black dots’, which may fill up the entire canal. Careful drying and cleaning of external auditory canal is the first step in treatment, which is done preferably by suction evacuation by an ENT Specialist. The topical therapy with antifungal or other antimicrobial agents is also necessary. After cleaning the canal, antifungal drops, are given. Because the infection can persist asymptomatically, the patient should be re-evaluated at the end of the course of treatment.

How Hoarseness Can be Treated

MBBS, MS-ENT, DNB (ENT) -, DOHNS(LONDON) -
ENT Specialist, Gurgaon
How Hoarseness Can be Treated

Hoarseness in the simplest sense means, 'hoarse voice'. It may be defined as an abnormal voice change. It is experienced in the form of strained, rough, thick, harsh and grating voice. Variations can be felt even in the loudness and pitch of the voice.

Hoarseness is a temporary infection associated with the larynx, which is also known as the voice box in animals as well as humans. Vocal cords are present inside the voice box. Depending on the vibration of the vocal cord, different sounds are produced.

What are the general causes of hoarseness?

Hoarseness may be caused by common cold, viral infection, cough, irritation due to screaming, smoking, allergy, thyroid problem, acute laryngitis and benign tumor. In adults, the stomach asset comes up to the throat causing hoarseness. Heartburn can also be one of the causes.

When hoarseness arises due to common cold and cough, it will last for 2 to 3 days and will subside using cough suppressant and home remedies like salt water gargling, drinking hot milk with turmeric and pepper powder. As cough or cold suppress, hoarseness will also reduce.

When to see an Otolaryngologist (ENT specialist)?

Serious infections in ear nose and throat are treated by an otolaryngologist. It is very essential to consult this specialist if hoarseness lasts for more than 2 to 3 weeks; pain in ENT is not due to cold or flu, coughing up blood, lump in the neck.

Evaluation: The medical specialist starts his diagnosis by physically examining the vocal cord. Flexible light weight fiber optic tube scope is also used to visually examine the larynx area. Videotaping, acoustic analysis is also done to study voice irregularities, airflow to guide treatment.

How can hoarseness be treated?

The mode of treatments depends on underlying the cause of the problem. The patient may be advised:

  1. In most cases, hoarseness can be treated just by resting your throat or modifying the use of your voice.
  2. To avoid smoking or passive smoking
  3. Referred to a speech therapist to improve sound of voice.
  4. In case of benign tumor the nodule or polyp is removed by surgery.

How can you prevent hoarseness?

We've all heard the phrase, 'prevention is better than cure'. Alas, it is. Preventing hoarse voice and throat is a much better option than treating it. Here are some tips on how to prevent hoarseness:

  • Avoid smoking
  • Avoid overconsumption of caffeine and alcohol.
  • Consume plenty of water
  • Avoid eating spicy food.
  • Avoid speaking loudly for long intervals of time.

Better to find the cause for your cold and avoid it. Likely causes are dust smokes perfumes pollutants and poll end. If not possible to find or avoid the cause than take antihistamines for 10 days. But it is always best to see an ent surgeon and get a check up done.
