Put some waxolytic solvents in the ears this will dissolve the wax if you put this nearly 10-12 time per day, if wax comes out by itself than fine otherwise get it clean from ear consultant and remember you should not try it by yourself.

Hi lybrate-user. Ideally you should not clear ear by yourself. As using earbuds. You push the wax more inside. If you have to then consult ENT and let him do his job.

Hello lybrate-user wax production in ear is a normal phenomenon and ear has physiological mechanisms by which the wax comes out automatically. However in some ears whose canal are narrow or the wax produced is excessive, it accumulates and causes impaction and hearing loss, pain and other symptoms. In such cases one must consult an otolaryngologist (ent specialist) who can remove the wax using a probe or endoscope as an office procedure. Self instrumentation with any ear bud is not recommended for the following reasons. 1. When you use an ear bud you are pushing the wax further inside. When an ent specialist removes wax using a probe he puts the probe behind the wax and pulls it outside. 2. You cannot see how deep you are poking with the ear bud, one of the commonest complications of self instrumentation is ear drum rupture or perforation. Perforated ear drums have a separate line of management. However you may use a wax desolving ear drops every few weeks after discussing with your doctor to make the formed wax more soluble and it can come off easier. Hope to find you in good health soon.

Hi ear ache can be caused due to misalignment of jaw but you can't explain vertigo and neck pain with that. So I think vertigo and neck pain are related to each other while the ear pain is an isolated symptom. Also if the ear ache is in the same ear as that of the stapedectomy ear then we need to consider some tests to be done. Still I would suggest you to visit an orthodontist to rule out any misalignment and if it is not then take a reopinion of the ent specialist. Regards.

First of all you need an assessment of your hearing level, which can be done by a test called" pure tone audiometry" Depending on the results of the above mentioned test, further course of action can be decided.

All About Common Ear Infections!

All About Common Ear Infections!

The most common ear infections happen because of bacterial or viral growth in the middle ear, the part which lies just behind the ear drum. Middle-ear infections can be very painful and children are most commonly affected. Most of these infections are caused transmission through the Eustachian tube, which connects the ear and the throat, causing the build-up of fluids and swelling. Here is a guide to the most common forms of ear infections and their symptoms, ranging from the acute to the chronic.

Acute infections have intense symptoms but can be cured with time and treatment. They generally last for shorter durations.

In Chronic cases of infections, the patient complains of recurrent symptoms multiple times. Chronic ear infections have the potential of causing permanent damage to the ear.

Symptoms reported by most patients with Ear infections:

  1. Pain in the ear (Mild to severe): This is caused due to increased pressure owing to the blockage of the Eustachian tube. The collection of fluid inside the ear would increase the intensity of pain in most cases. Children will keep tugging at their ear and most likely be cranky.
  2. Redness and swelling of the eardrum: Both of these are inevitable accompanying symptoms in case of any infection in the body.
  3. Oozing of the fluids: The blockage leads to the fluid being released from the ear by a perforation that develops ear drum, which can be watery, thick yellow or mixed with blood depending on the severity and type of infection.
  4. Fever
  5. Difficulty in sleeping.
  6. In some cases when the infection spreads, difficulty in balancing the body is experienced as body balance is maintained by ears.
  7. The patient might also experience increased irritability.
  8. Ear infections can also cause a hearing problem if the condition continues to go untreated.

Ear infections should be promptly dealt with to prevent long-term damages. So here is what should be done when you have ear pain symptoms.

  1. Consult an ENT who will prescribe pain medication as the first line of treatment.
  2. After the necessary tests are done, antibiotics are prescribed in most cases by the doctor. Other medications for palliative treatment (to ease the symptoms) are administered. However, in a few rare cases, the infection might be because of non-bacterial causes in which antibiotics might not cure the state.
  3. In case the problem keeps recurring, one must visit the doctor again and get further tests and treatment done. Treating nasal infections plays a very important part in preventing ear infections

As prevention is always better than cure, care should be taken to avoid all chances of carrying the infection to your ear. Maintain cleanliness in and around, especially in the case of children. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ent Specialist.

Sinus Problem and its treating method in Acupressure points:


Sinuses Problem and its Treatment in Acupressure
If you are plagued by sinus problems, take a moment to consider these valuable parts of your head. What can turn good sinuses into problem sinuses?

Your sinuses are hollow air spaces within the bones between your eyes, behind your cheekbone, and in the forehead. They produce mucus, which helps keep the inside of your nose moist. That, in turn, helps protect against dust, allergens, and pollutants.
Interesting Sinus Facts
No one is completely sure why we have sinuses, but some researchers think they keep the head from being too heavy.Sinuses are also are responsible for the depth and tone of your voice. This explains why you sound like Clint Eastwood when your sinuses are all stuffed up.If the tissue in your nose is swollen from allergies, a cold, or environmental triggers, it can block the sinus passages. Your sinuses can?t drain, and you may feel pain.

There are eight sinus cavities in total. They are paired, with one of each in the left and right side of the face.Two sinus cavities are located in the forehead.Two are behind each cheekbone.Two sinus cavities are within the bones between your eyes.Two are behind each eye.
Acupuncture & Acupressure treatment method for this problem:
Acupressure and Acupuncture treatment is one of the best and proved method to relieve this Lung related problem and as per this method so many reason cause this problem, like cold in winter, cold in summer like so many reason and a traditional acupuncturist is capable to provide parmenant relive for this problem throug diagnosing the condition of pulse of an individual, Here I have mention some common points to get relive from this sinus problem readers can approach me for more clarification on this topic

Acupressur Points for Relieve this problem:
To relieve your upper or frontal sinuses, use B2, located at the bridge of your nose. This mental stress point is located in the indentation of your upper eye socket, where the bridge of the nose meets the ridge of your eyebrows.

To open the maxillary sinuses in the cheek, use the foremost acupressure points for the sinuses: LI20 and St3, underneath your eyes, just below your cheekbones. Use gentle pressure. These points are safe and useful to teach to children.- Have a Healthy Life- Acupuncture Dr. Nazir Sheriff - www.Acuheal.In

Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

How snoring can be stopped as by inhaling breath please also mention its causes and cure age 50.

BAMS
Ayurveda, Bangalore
Hi, causes of snoring are obesity, nasal problems such as blocked nose due to nasal septal deviation, polyp or sinusitis, smoking, consumption of tobacco, intake of alcohol, sleeping pills, relaxed throat muscles in elderly and tonsillitis in children. 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.

Cotton Buds - Why You Must Not Use Them?

MBBS
General Physician, Malappuram
Cotton Buds - Why You Must Not Use Them?

Cotton swabs or cotton buds, are commonly used in our daily lifestyle. Many people use it for various purposes, such as make-up, bacterial culture, and most commonly for extracting wax and debris from the ear. Even though they are sometimes handy in our busy schedule, they usually cause much more harm than benefits.

How are they misused?
Cotton buds are toothpick like pieces made of wood, plastic, or rolled paper, which have cotton stuck at both ends with a roundish edge. It came into existence during the 1920s for a safe purpose of ear cleaning by Leo Gerstenzang, when he saw his wife cleaning their baby’s ear with a toothpick. And, til now they are used by the general population for ear cleaning, but these hardly remove the outer debris which is stuck near the outer edges. Impressing it inside the ear canal only does further damage, by forcing the inner wax further inside. Sometimes extensive force also causes damage to the ear drums.

How does it cause the damage?
Applying a tool like the cotton bud inside the ear with hands usually creates a force that impresses upon the eardrum, also accumulating the surrounding earwax to that area, resulting in impaction of the wax. The force applied most often, if not always, causes a damage to the ear drums, which might cause severe pain, also leading to leakage, causing improper balance, deafness, and certain similar abnormalities.

Alternative measures
Although we are worried about cleaning our ears, it doesn’t really require our notice, since our usual showers allow an adequate quantity of water to enter the ears and clean the accumulated debris automatically. The structure, in which our ear canal is designed, is usually naturally assisting in cleaning up the unusual wax around the ear.

If there is an uncontrollable build up of earwax that is not cleaned off normally, you can always consult an ENT or any general physician and get it cleaned under medical surveillance, which is best advised.
Doctors and medical practitioners all around the world have been trying to spread the message of preventing the use of cotton buds for ear cleaning. It is important that the message reach the greater part of the population. Spread it to your family, your closest friends, their friends, and as further, you can reach!
