Humming sound, whistling and giddiness are the problems which are getting in people are very common these days, these get complicated when they are not taken care of at proper time whistling or buzzing in the ear is getting commoner these days in people of all ages. Most common causes is wax or any object in the ear, after getting your ears clean these gets over. But if ears are already clean than this is worrisome. Common causes which are responsible are high cholesterol diet, alcohol, smoking, loud noises, cervical spondylosis, trauma (self or inflicted) over the ears. If this is the situation than report to your ent doctor immediately tinnitus is basically due to hampered blood supply to ears due to which ears start dying. As this process starts a person starts hearing noises. When a person starts hearing noises then it is already late diagnosis as these noises gets heard by someone when they are of 40 db intensity, below that threshold these noises are not heard. So it is already to late and the damage has become permanent. Problem with these noises are that we can control at what level person goes to his specialist otherwise these noises keep on increasing and can give you headache frustration and depression. Now a days tinnitus maskers are available which help you to lead your life peacefully.

I am 22 years old, male . I get cold and throat pain at least once in a month, throat pain more often. For the past 15 years everyday mornings my nose gets blocked so that after waking up from bed I apply vicks to get relieved from that. When it is so severe and if I meet docs, they just give medicines for the time being. I feel some part of my immunity is low. So do you have any advise for me sir/madame.

DNB (ENT), MBBS

Hi Keep the nose clean and well irrigated after surgery. You can use saline nasal spray (solspre) 2 puffs, in both nasal cavities, 4-5 times a day for 1 month. This will help reduce nasal irritation.

This device may temporarily press your nasal tissue, but it will not create any long term durable difference in the shape of your nose. Rhinoplasty surgery is the best option if you would like to change your nose shape.

Tonsils swells due to response to what we eat. The response can be allergic, inflammatory or infection. So try to control your diet. Take as much natural things as possible. Avoid cold, spicy or artificial color containing food. Antibiotics should be avoided as far as possible.

When my inner ears or back of my throat itch, I make a noise that sort of produces a scratching sensation. I can't describe it. It can make your throat a bit sore if you do it too much. It then leads to sneezing and watery nose.

I have a problem of allergic rhinitis how it can be cured and what are the special remedies.

I have a problem of allergic rhinitis how it can be cured and what are the special remedies.
Some times what we think as allergic rhinitis is mainly sinusitis first thing you should go for ct scan of nose and sinus than treatment is based on grade of the sinus, if it is grade iv than no treatment is available or effective unless you get this corrected by surgery, surgery will give you nearly 80-90%. Than remaining you can treat with homeopathy than it will help. The bone of he nose gets deviated this leads to nose breathing problem if a person suffering from nasal obstruction along with sinusitis and mild to moderate nasal allergies it means most probably he is suffering from dns (deviated nasal septum. Nasal obstruction is because of the deviated portion of the nasal septum (this is the bony partition of the nose cavity. Allergies are because of the hampered muco-ciliary mechanism (normally mucus is produced in the nose to moisten our nose cavity, oral cavity, and help food bolus to move downward, this mucus is basically moves on the cilia of the nasal mucosa) this mechanism gets hampered and mucus start accumulating in the nose and sinus cavity which is why thick mucus comes from nose in patients of nose obstruction and person develops sinusitis. When a surgeon removes the nasal septum deviation has not been removed properly the symptoms persists, and patient thinks that the nose bone has again regrown. It is not because of regrowth but because of half surgery done or due to the non removal of the deviation (reason can be many) nowadays nasal septal deviation can be removed endoscopic ally. But if the sinusitis is grade ii or iii than there are possibility that you may get relief from symptoms.
