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. 1. Mix three teaspoons of salt (preferably sea salt) in two cups of warm water. 2. Gargle with this solution. Do not swallow it. Spit the water out after gargling. 3. Do this several times daily for one to two days.

Please do salt water gargles with little water. Do not try with too hot water. If you like, you can add 1 spoon honey to the gargles solution. Do not eat spicy food or fried items. Always brush 2 times a day. Also, try steam inhalation 3 times a day. Eat food that is rich in vitamin c.

Drink a glass of warm milk daily. Secondly if you have sensitive skin - apply Vaseline on the finger first and then masturbate. Due to hormonal changes the things are happening and it will settle down soon. For further queries get back to me.

Sir, I am Suffering from cold Since a Year. I have Tried Many medicines like English Desi But its Not working much and I am 16 year old and my nose has also injured due to accident last month. Is that injury is the reason? Suggest me what should I do? Should I ask doctor for operation?

Allergy is the cause of your sneezing which has nothing to do with the accident. You will have to get the nose examined by an ent surgeon to rule out any nasal defects like a deviated nasal septum or an enlarged inferior turbinates. Surgery should always be the last resort.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
There are some oils in ayurveda those smooth en the respiration. But ent surgeon should exclude any dns etc. Surgery for smooth inhale exhale process is often of short duration effect. If you like we may advise herbal'instilling oil' but 100% correctness in snoring can't be assured.

Tobacco is killer. Quit immediately and go to Doctor or local hospital for tests. Your throat problem can be serious. You can give deep massage to your throat, But earlier advice you must follow.

I am 30 years old. I was suffering from salivary glands swelling so doctor prescribed me for antibiotic Advent 625 mg. I was taking this but it was doing some side effects. Like stomach upset, diarrhea, dizziness. Doctor prescribed me for 7 days but it's 6 day and I cannot tolerate this tablet anymore. So should I stopped it or not.

This problem usually occurs due to lack of hydration and excess of spicy and salty food, to avoid this problem further in future keep yourself hydrated in this dry weather, take good amount of semi solids like shakes lemon juices, sugarcane juice, and lassie curds any of milk products like cold coffee, hot coffee, this will definitely benefit you, avoid junk food, stop antibiotics you have taken enough.
