Hello sir, I am 24 year old and live in mumbai. My question is how to stop snoring. I think as per my age I have louder sound snore comes at sleeping. please help me.

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.

This is what happens when you consult many doctors. Both antibiotics are second generation cephalosporins, work towards different bacteria. It is always advisable to take antibiotics which covers most of bacteria which can cause pharyngitis. Kindly take one of the antibiotic. Complete the course. Along with do Betadine mouth wash twice daily for a week.

Hi, for your nasal allergy issue, you may try the following: (a) use a paediatrics saline nasal spray twice daily (b) identify allergens that trigger allergy in your nose/ allergic rhinitis and avoid them. (c) make sure you keep your nostrils clean. Wash with water daily. (d) take a glass of warm water, to which a tsp of pure honey and third of a lemon are mixed properly, daily morning empty stomach. (e) take half a glass of warm water to which 1/4 tsp freshly ground turmeric and a piece of black pepper (crushed) are mixed properly, post dinner, for 5 days. (f) streamline your diet and lifestyle. Focus on fresh fruits and leafy greens, restrict spicy, oily, fatty and flesh foods. (g) stay relaxed and keep your stress levels low. Daily yoga, pranayam and meditation help de-stress. Please follow steps (d) & (e) as mentioned above only if you have no allergy or other issues taking them. As regards your issue with bone, you may please consult an ent specialist who needs to examine you clinically and advise diagnostics as appropriate to figure out any constitutional deformities or any sort of growth in your nose that is causing problems and then advise accordingly. Hope this help you.

4 months Baby suddenly having sore throat as a result sound generated when breathing.
Kindly advise.
Only symptom of baby is sound when breathing developed suddenly, is not criterion of sore throat. It is likely tug of saliva in throat may cause throat sound or it may be chest infection. Baby is only 4 month old, it is better to consult pediatrician for early intervention.

It looks like infection of ear, especially if you are also having cold too. Best thing is to consult an ent surgeon because it may have caused hole in your eardrum. By that time you can take mild painkiller like paracetamol and use some antibiotics ear drops. Do not allow water entering your ear at all. Do not clean your ear enthusiastically.

Nosebleed - How It Can Be Stopped?

Nosebleed - How It Can Be Stopped?

A nosebleed also called epistaxis medically is normally not dangerous, but if you are old nosebleeds come with a number of risks. Treating a bloody nose incorrectly can only make it more dangerous, because of prolonged bleeding. Before we explain the ways to stop nosebleeds, let’s take a look at its causes:
Nosebleeds usually start from just inside the entrance of the nostril. But, why? Because the blood vessels here are quite fragile and are also prone to rupture easily. This is the reason why children suffer from nosebleeds so easily. Other common reasons are

  1. A blocked nose due to colds
  2. Picking one's nose roughly
  3. Blowing one's nose
  4. Injuries
  5. Use of cocaine

A nosebleed usually lasts for about 10-20 minutes and is usually easy to treat. But in some conditions, this bleeding can be profuse and last longer like in cases of 

  1. Heart failure
  2. Blood clotting disorders
  3. Due to 'blood thinning' medicines
  4. Hypertension

Bleeding can sometimes also happen in areas further back in the nose due mostly to injuries and disorders of the nose.

Treatment
Usually, nosebleeds can be stopped using simple first aid.

  1. Sitting up straight helps, especially along with tipping your head forward. It is vital that you don’t tip your head backwards as this can allow the blood to go down your throat and cause vomiting. And this can make your nosebleed worse. So, take care to spit out the blood in your mouth and not to swallow it.
  2. To stop a nosebleed, pinch the soft, cartilaginous part of your nose using your thumb and forefinger. Spraying your nose with a medicated nasal spray before pinching it can help the bleeding to stop faster. Apply pressure for 10 minutes to get results. Check if your nosebleed has stopped after 10 minutes if it’s not; apply pressure for another 10 minutes. Nosebleeds usually stop after 10 to 20 minutes of pressure.
  3. Use an ice pack to your nose and cheeks. This will constrict the blood vessels in the nose and stop the nosebleed.
  4. Use a saline- or water-based nasal gel inside your nose to stop bleeding.
  5. Remember not to blow your nose or insert anything into your nose for at least 12 hours after your nosebleed is over.
  6. If the bleeding doesn’t stop even after 20 minutes of applying direct pressure, it’s prudent to rush to a doctor. He will treat your nose to stop the bleeding.
  7. In a few rare cases, the bleeding is so severe that a blood transfusion is needed, and surgery may be needed to stop it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ent Specialist.
