If this sore throat is of only a short duration, it is usually due to a viral infection. You don't need any antibiotics, some anti allergic medications like certirizine, saltwater gargling and some rest should get you cured in 2 days. If doesn't get resolved in 2 days think of taking antibiotics.

do you have pain on cheek bones on pressing it? hot fomentation is really helpful in sinus besides drink fluids, such as water or juice. This will help dilute mucous secretions and promote drainage. Avoid beverages that contain caffeine or alcohol, as they can be dehydrating. Drinking alcohol can also worsen the swelling of the lining of the sinuses and nose. Moisturize your sinus cavities. Drape a towel over your head as you breathe in the vapor from a bowl of medium-hot water. Keep the vapor directed toward your face. Or take a hot shower, breathing in the warm, moist air. This will help ease pain and help mucus drain. Apply warm compresses to your face. Place warm, damp towels around your nose, cheeks and eyes to ease facial pain. Rinse out your nasal passages. Use a specially designed squeeze bottle (sinus rinse, others), saline canister or neti pot to rinse your nasal passages. This home remedy, called nasal lavage, can help clear your sinuses. If you make your own rinse, use water that's contaminant-free distilled, sterile, previously boiled and cooled, or filtered using a filter with an absolute pore size of 1 micron or smaller to make up the irrigation solution. Also be sure to rinse the irrigation device after each use with contaminant-free water, and leave open to air-dry. Sleep with your head elevated. This will help your sinuses drain, reducing congestion. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Is paining of area around ears normally in case of tooth ache.
Pain around the ear of the side in which the tooth is paining can be possible because of toothache. It may not necessarily mean that all toothaches are going to lead to ear pain. If the pain in the ear region persists even after the tooth has been treated, a ent consultation is called for.

I am suffering from sinus frequently. Facing difficulty while breathing at night time. Please suggest any medicine for complete relaxation for the same.

This is due to lack of hydration of the nose, so you need to have good fresh fruits which keeps you well hydrated like shakes, juices without ice, cold youcan take but chilled you should avoid, and iron rich diet.

I have a problem about my nose, in summer blood flow from my nose. What is the solution of this problem?

It is because your secretions dry up in nose forming crusts. These crusts when dislodged lead to bleeding from disruption of sensitive nasal mucosa or'skin' drink plenty of water. In case of bleeding pinch your nose.

There are various techniques to stop nose bleeding: sit upright and lean forward. By remaining upright, you reduce blood pressure in the veins of your nose. This discourages further bleeding. Sitting forward will help you avoid swallowing blood, which can irritate your stomach. Pinch your nose. Use your thumb and index finger to pinch your nostrils shut. Breathe through your mouth. Continue to pinch for five to 10 minutes. Pinching sends pressure to the bleeding point on the nasal septum and often stops the flow of blood. To prevent re-bleeding, don't pick or blow your nose and don't bend down for several hours after the bleeding episode. During this time remember to keep your head higher than the level of your heart. If re-bleeding occurs then you can consult me privately doctor. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

You are suffering from various problems related to multiple specialities. You should consult with an ENT surgeon for the ENT problems, a general surgeon for blood in stool and a cardiologist for chest pain. Wish you all the best.

Hello, nothing worry it's just that you are recovering from flu. Viral fevers are associated with myalgia a that means weakness in limbs and tiredness in doing work this will be there for a week or so. Will come down slowly just keep yourself well hydrated taking lots of liquids like juices, ors tetra pack, tender coconut. Surely will improve slowly. Take care.

You should get a ct scan done to find out any underlying pathology in nose like polyps that can be treated accordingly. You can start tab. Allegra 120 mg daily at bed time and flomist nasal spray twice a day along with that steam inhalation also.
