For your sinus problems I will suggest you to buy a steam inhaler machine of crescent company and take a flow of steam (of plain water only) over the forehead through the inhaler and can repeat the process after eight hours do it for ten days.

Hi Doctor, I have 1 Tonsil stone from last 1 month. I have tried anti-biotics, betadine gargle and even salt water gargle as suggested by the doctor, but still no effect of it. I have been facing little issues while gulping things (it feels like there is something stuck inside). Also, due to this I have started experiencing acidity problem and chest pain at times. So, I want to get it removed. It is of small in size. So, do I need to get an operation done or it can be removed without getting operated. So, could you provide information on this and also the charges for it. Thanks.

Its tonsillolith, its not necessary to undergo operation for removing tonsillolith. It's generally removed manually and maintaining oral hygiene after it is sufficient. But, main concern in your history is development of clinical symptoms while swallowing also chest pain. Repeated tonsillitis or tonsillar infection is an indication of operation. So, get a whole body check up to rule out any systemic affects developed and undergo tonsillectomy if needed. Regarding cost, tonsillectomy can be done either by dissection method or coblation method (both under rs 35000). Best of luck.

Had a disc replacement less than a month ago. Now have a sinus/ear infection. Antibiotics don't seem to be working, and the ear pain/discomfort seems to be getting worse. Am I having more trouble with fighting off the infection because of the surgery? Should I be seeking medical attention even though I've got five days left in the course of antibiotics?

Gargling with warm salt water is an effective way to treat a sore throat. Salt can even help kill the bacteria or virus causing pharyngitis. Mix three teaspoons of salt (preferably sea salt) in two cups of warm water. Gargle with this solution. Do not swallow it. Spit the water out after gargling. Do this several times daily for one to two days. Also take rhus tox 200 - twice daily for next 3 days and get back to me.

Hello and welcome to lybrate, from your history, I have come to an conclusion that the lump is nothing but enlarged post auricular lymph node. This lymphadenopathy is generally due to scalp infection. So, I think you first go to a dermatologist. That will be best for you. Thanks and get well soon.

Vocal abuse can result in the formation of bumps on your vocal cords (vocal nodules) . You will need to see an ENT specialist for a laryngoscopy.

Best Homeopathic Medicines For Laryngitis

What is Laryngitis?

Inflammation of the larynx, i.e. voice box, is referred to as laryngitis. Laryngitis is caused by infection – viral, bacterial or fungal. Overuse of the voice, allergies, acid reflux disease, smoking and alcohol intake are some other causes. Laryngitis can be acute or chronic. Short term laryngitis of less than 3 weeks’ duration is termed as acute laryngitis. Laryngitis which has lasted more than 3 weeks is termed long term or chronic laryngitis.

Symptoms of Laryngitis:

A major symptom of laryngitis is hoarseness of the voice. Other symptoms are dry/sore/raw throat, cough, difficulty swallowing, need to repeatedly clear the throat.

Homeopathic Treatment of Laryngitis:

Homeopathic medicines can treat laryngitis wonderfully well. Both acute and chronic laryngitis can be effectively treated under the Homeopathic system of medicine. The Homeopathic prescription for laryngitis varies from case to case as per the individual symptom presentation. Homeopathic medicines are natural and safe from adverse side effects. These medicines set off the body’s own restorative processes to enable it to fight off the disease and heal itself. Here is a list of the top homeopathic medicines prescribed for laryngitis.

  1. Argentum Met and Arum Triphyllum: These medicines are used for treating laryngitis, which occurs because of voice overuse. Argentum met is used when the symptoms include hoarseness of voice, and a sore feeling in the larynx. It is also used in cases of complete loss of voice, which is common among singers and public speakers. Hawking is likely, and viscid mucus discharge is indicated. Arum Triphyllum is also used for treating laryngitis occurring due to excessive voice use. This medicine is best for patients whose voice become uncontrollable and uncertain. Apart from a burning sensation, pain in the larynx when clearing the throat is also likely.

  2. Phosphorus: This homeopathic medicine is used for treating laryngitis accompanied by violent tickling in the larynx, which leads to coughing. The cough worsens with talking and reading. Voice hoarseness is also indicated, which worsens at night.

  3. Drosera: This homeopathic medicine is used when laryngitis is accompanied by dry and irritating cough. A rough, scraping sensation is experienced in the throat, and voice hoarseness is indicated.

  4. Acusticamente: This medicine is used for treating laryngitis, which occurs due to exposure to cold air. The larynx becomes inflamed after being exposed to cold, and voice hoarseness is likely to occur.

  5. Belladonna and Lodum: These are effective homeopathic medicines for laryngitis in which voice hoarseness is accompanied by larynx pain. Belladonna is used when the larynx gets sore and painful, the throat turns red, and there is difficulty in swallowing food. A lump like sensation, and a constrict feeling may be experienced in the throat. Iodum is used when a rough, burning pain in the throat is experienced along with hoarseness and roughness of voice. Cough is also indicated, which results in gasping due to extreme pain.

  6. Calcarea Carb and Carbo Veg: These are effective homeopathic medicines used for treating laryngitis, when the symptoms include painless voice hoarseness. Hawking of mucus is also likely to occur in cases when Calcarea Carb is prescribed. Carbo Veg is prescribed when itching in the larynx is experienced along with voice hoarseness.

It is recommended for you to consult a homeopathic practitioner before taking homeopathic medicines for treating laryngitis.

I snore a lot while sleeping. Multiple times gets up at night. Feeling drowsy all day. How to avoid or reduce snoring.

DNB (Respiratory Diseases), MD - Tuberculosis & Respiratory Diseases / Pulmonary Medicine, Diploma in Tuberculosis and Chest Diseases (DTCD)
Allergist/Immunologist, Thrissur
Yours is a classical case of OSAS. It is not only snoring but throat block occuring at night during deep sleep due to your tongue falling back into your throat which is very narrow as you are obese. You should immediately follow this: 1. Go to a pulmonologist in Bangalore and do Sleep study this week itself. It will show how back is your problem during sleep. 2. Reduce weight by all methods 3. You may most likely need a machine to prevent throat block during night. It is costly but once your problem is rectified in 6 months time; you would be able to give it back to another patient through your doctor.

Sometimes 3 to 4 drops of water comes from my nose and i have fever also, so do they have any signs of illness.

MBBS, M.S. (ENT)
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Pune
Hi, Thank you for your query. 1. Clear nasal discharge may be due to allergic rhinitis. A trial with anti allergic medication should be done. Sinusitis should be ruled out. 2. However, since you have fever, it is better to get examined to rule out a CSF (Cerebrospinal fluid) leak. 3. Ideally, the fluid should be examined for physical characteristics and beta 2 transferrin, especially if the nasal discharge occurs after bending the head forwards and downwards (Reservoir or Teapot sign). 4. Check if the nasal fluid stiffens a cotton handkerchief on drying (Handkerchief test). If it does, it is normal nasal discharge. If not, it may be CSF. Regards.
