You seem to be suffering from tonsillitis. If it doesn't happen 4 to 5 times in a year then oral medications should suffice. If more than that then surgery is needed. So please consult an ent surgeon. You can take pain killers for a day or two and do warm saline gargles. Thanks.

You may be having airnor water lock in the ear or it could be due to csom or middle ear problem. Consult a ent specialist.

My Father has tinnitus and day by day sound in ear is increasing Can he use tablet TINNEX.

Yes he can use tablet Tinnex but he may not get benefit, as few drugs are capable of controlling tinnitus. Consult a good ENT surgeon / audiologist for audiological investigations and non pharmacological therapy of tinnitus.

Regular cold may be due to Allergies or due to decreased immunity repeated episodes of viral infection. *Steam inhalation  twice a day. *Have fruits 5 portions  every day  *A course of vitamin B complex and vitamin C to improve  immunity. *Avoid  allergic stimuli like dust ,pollens. If you remain in AC room either ensure AC FILTER is cleaned every 2 weeks  or use a mask *Steroid nasal  sprays may be needed for a prolonged duration Anti allergic  drugs may also be needed. Apply mupirocin ointment to the raw area of child's nose. Hope this helps.

I am sleeping late at night and as a result wake up very late, sore throat like feeling all day and mild pain in neck.

I am sleeping late at night and as a result wake up very late, sore throat like feeling all day and mild pain in neck.
I don't think late sleeping has got anything to do with your throat problem. If it is the infection that is causing the pain then try with some antibiotics and gargles. And yes, neck pain might be a cause of high pillow (in case you r using it) or can be coz of awkward neck position while sleeping. You can have some muscle relaxant or pain killer if its too severe. If it doesn't improve consult a pmr doctor.

I have been suffering from throat infection since 14 days. Initially I had cold then had severe infection, met physician he gave augmed 625 for 1 week. But I used for only 3 days and felt relief, but after two days I felt a bit irritation. So again used same augmed 625 still didn't get relief. Again met doctor he changed to ceoflex xl, I used for 5 days. I am feeling pain in ear sometimes . Meet ent even he said still some infection is remaining and continue tabs for two days . Does infection persists for so many days ? Even I am getting cough.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user. As you said you have infection. Do routine blood test to rule out whether is it infective, viral or allergic. For productive cough you better do your x-ray chest (p/a) view. Let we know. As you have taken antibiotics n symptomatic rx. Try homeopathy to avoid recurrence and better recovery.

I am suffering from cold and one side nose blocked it means one side not clearing breathing. Can you suggest what should I do.

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Please take Bryonia 200 – once daily for next 3-4 days. Drink plenty of warm fluids. Drinking warm fluids helps to loosen the secretions in your sinuses so that your mucus flows more freely, making you feel better faster. Studies show that drinking warm fluids relieves cold symptoms such as runny nose, cough, sneezing, sore throat, and fatigue.

Hi I'm 23y years old I have bald portion above my left ear I have tried many medicines but not a single hair is back what should I do now.

Hi I'm 23y years old I have bald portion above my left ear I have tried many medicines but not a single hair is back ...
Is the bald patch just above the left hair or is it above the right ear as well? if it is only above the left ear, you can fill that area with hair transplant, its a procedure where hair from other part of the scalp is taken and implanted in the required bald patch. Once a bald patch has appeared it is nearly impossible to grow natural hair in that area with oils and shampoos. Also its important to understand in detail why the bald patch has appeared on the left side and the cause of it.

I am 26 years old and from last 1 year I have started snoring. It starts as soon as I fell to sleep. Sir it feels very embarrassing. Sir please suggest.

BAMS

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.

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?
