I am 23 years of age, from my left ear fluid is coming out and pain occurs some time.
Hi If you have never experienced  this problem, then you need to start  *an antibiotic  immediately.  *A decongestant  medicine *Avoid water entry in the ear. *Avoid shampooing for atleast 10 days till the ear discharge dries up. *Get a Pure tone audiometry and tympanometry done. These tests can detect ear drum perforation. Otoendoscopy  may also be done Ear discharge may occur due to acute or chronic otitis media. Your symptoms  appear to be of Acute otitis media. In this case ear discharge occurs after a small perforation  in the ear drum due to pus buildup.  But if you have had the problem previously  too it may be due to Chronic otitis media. In that case you have to also start an ear drop and may need surgery. Share your test reports like PTA, Tympanometry, otoendoscopy. Then I can help you

Sir mere husband ko vertigo hai, ye kis wajh se hota h aur q hota h iske koi medicine consult kre please
Vertigo chakkar aane aur santulan khone ke anubhuti ko kahte hain. Iska mukhya kaaran aantrik kaan men sthit vestibular granthi mein kriyadosh hota hai. Is granthi mein 3 ardhchandraakaar naliyan hotee hain jinme taral padarth bharaa hota hai. Gardan ghumaane se yaa jhukaane se is taral padaarth ke stur mein parivartan hotaa hai jisase humein apnee sthiti kaa gyaan hota hai aur hum apna santulan banaaye rakh sakte hain. Kabhi kabhi is taral padaarth mein jo calcium ke chhote chhote kann hote hain we mukhya granthi ko chhodkar naliyon mein chale jaate hain jisase gardan ghumaane yaa jhukaane se khaaskar sokar uthate ya baithkar khadey hote samay achaanak sab ghoomtaa hua anubhav hota hai aur gir padenge aesaa lagta hai. Isko theek karne ke liye gardan kaa ek vishisht vyayaam karnaa hotaa hai tatha kuchh dawaaiyaan bhi leni hotee hain.

Hi, Take Schwabe’s Alpha-SH, Alpha-NH and Biocombination-05 - all of them thrice a day for 4 weeks. Use Bakson's Nasal-Aid spray/ 1-2 sprays after every 4 hours. Management: - Avoid cold drinks and fried food, take healthy food. -Avoid exposure to Air-conditioner or cold air. -Take steam-inhalation once before going to bed. -Take enough sleep and rest. Home-Remedies: -When turmeric is combined with spicy ginger root and brewed for hot tea, this combination can help loosen mucus from clogged nasal passages, alleviate sinus pressure, and make you feel better all around. -Two or three tablespoons of raw, unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar added to a cup of hot water or tea taken three times daily will help thin out excessive mucus relieving congestion an sinus pressure. Mix with lemon and honey to taste. - Vitamin C (available in form of chewables) helps the body to resist immune system deficiencies and improves overall health.

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.

There is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. Topical capsaicin, derived from chili peppers, may help with arthritis, diabetic nerve pain, and other conditions. There's evidence that glucosamine can help relieve moderate to severe pain from osteoarthritis in the knee. Do reply back for private consultation. And detailed treatment plan.
