I have a bad headache and acute tonsillitis even suffering from typhoid. What should be most important to me now to do?
If typhoid is diagnosed by a qualified doctor after proper examination and blood tests, you require bed rest for atleast 7 - 10 days. Bland nourishing diet like rice kanji fruits, fruit juice paracetamol tablets for headache. Proper antibiotics for adequate period to take care of both typhoid and tosillitis. You will have to be under direct supervision of a qualified doctor.

Loss of sense of smell can be due to many reasons including systemic and local factors in nose like mass or polyps in nose that can be diagnosed with ct scan. So get it done and send report. By the time start ezicas-f or flomist nasal spray twice a day.

You are hypersensitive to the ingredients in the medicine you have taken from the chemist. Do not use over the counter medicines without prescription. Keep the name of this medicine in your records to inform the doctor you go for treatment so that he can keep this drug out of your prescription. The hives will lessen after some time provided you do not repeat the same medicine. Your doctor will prescribe you some antihistamine to treat this.

My son is four years old and he is snoring at night due to his enlarged tonsils. I have already gone for the homeopathy treatment but no sign of improvement I am fining. Please suggest me the home remedies for my son.

Natural Remedies for Ear Infections in Children

DNB (Pediatrics), MBBS

Ear aches are a common complaint for many children. An ear infection can be explained as an inflammation of the middle ear. Unlike other aches, this one cannot be soothed by scratching or applying pressure and hence makes children cranky. Ear infections are usually triggered by bacteria or viruses.
This causes inflammation that narrows the tube in the ear and allows fluid to build up. This fluid buildup is responsible for the pain.

However, not all ear infections need to be treated with medication. When it comes to treating ear aches in children, picking a natural remedy is a much better option ,since it has no side effects and can address the root cause of the infection. Here are a few natural remedies for earaches:

1. Compress: Hot and cold compresses are very effective ways of treating pain and can be used for earaches as well. Place an ice pack or a warm, moist compress over the ear to soothe the ache. Heat relaxes the muscles and stimulates blood flow while ice controls inflammation and swelling. Hot and cold compresses should not be applied for over 20 minutes at a time.

2. Water: Some actions can help open up the eustachian tube to the middle ear. Swallowing is one such action. To encourage your child to swallow, offer him lots of fluids.

3. Oil: Before using oil to treat an earache ensure that your child is not suffering from a ruptured eardrum and there is no fluid leaking from the ear. Pouring a few drops of warm olive oil or sesame oil can help soothe the pain by opening up the eustachian tube. It can also prevent the buildup of excessive ear wax and form a protective layer on the outer ear against bacteria and other infections.

4. Elevate the head: Elevating a child's head can help improve sinus drainage. When it comes to children, instead of using a pillow below their head, place the pillow below the mattress to create a gradual slope.

5. Onion: Onions can be used in many different ways to treat earaches. You could either juice an onion and put a few drops of the same in the ear or slice an onion in half and heat it before placing it over the ear like an ear muff. Onion contains anti inflammatory and antibacterial properties that help soothe earaches effectively and quickly.

If the earache does not reduce or if there is a discharge from the ear, do not continue to self treat it and consult a doctor immediately.

Is Bluetooth earphones (wireless) are harmful than normal earphones? Please reply.
There are two issues here - one is the radiation that is emitted. Second is the decibel level at which one uses the head phones. All standard branded models of cellphones have specifications written on them (on the Manual). So it can be safe if you are using a good cellphone which adheres to the standards. It would still be wise to use the cellphone sparingly or as it is needed and avoid radiations. The headphone should not be used for long intervals of time as it came be harmful in the long run. (The incidence of ear infections may be high and also hearing loss may be another risk) Use it at a minimum audible level. Use speake phone when possible.
