Sometimes due to some severe throat infection and hawking, some blood oozes out along with expectoration and thi is normal. But if you are experiencing persitant fresh blood while coughing then you sshould immediately consult a chest specialist without waisting more time.

I am suffering from sinus frequently. Facing difficulty while breathing at night time. Please suggest any medicine for complete relaxation for the same.

DORL, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Faridabad
This is due to lack of hydration of the nose, so you need to have good fresh fruits which keeps you well hydrated like shakes, juices without ice, cold youcan take but chilled you should avoid, and iron rich diet.

Yawning, or opening and closing one’s mouth can help raise the pressure inside the ear, thereby equalizing it with external pressure. Severe instances of a retracted eardrum may require draining of liquids from the middle ear via use of a tympanostomy ear tube. Cholesteatoma or retraction pockets with infections can be eliminated via different kinds of surgical methods.

Sinusitis: Controlling it without Surgery

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Sinusitis: Controlling it without Surgery

The inflammation of the cavities around nasal passage is known as sinusitis. When the cavities are full of fluid, germs attach themselves to the fluids, which give rise to infections. Some of the causes of sinusitis are common colds, allergic rhinitis problem, nasal polyps and deviated septum. You can also learn about common ear infections.

There are 4 different types of sinusitis:

  1. Acute sinusitis: It remains for about 4 weeks or less. It is usually characterized by a runny nose and pain in the face which will stay for at least 10 to 14 days.
  2. Sub acute sinusitis: It is almost like the acute sinusitis but stays longer for about 4 to 8 weeks.
  3. Chronic sinusitis: The inflammation in this case lasts about 8 weeks, sometimes longer than that.
  4. Recurrent sinusitis: In this, the sinusitis attack keeps occurring all through the year.

At times, to clear up the blocked sinuses, a surgery is mandatory. This can be painful hence many are hesitant to go through with a surgery. If you want to control sinusitis so that it doesn't reach the limit where you have to go through a surgery, here are some tips of what you might be able to do regularly to clear your chances of controlling this:

  1. Take steam: This is the most common and easy way to control sinusitis. The steam helps to break down the excess mucus in the nasal passage and also reduces the inflammation of the sinuses. All you need is water. Heat it up to the required temperature and then inhale the steam. You will get a lot of relief if you do this regularly.
  2. Nasal Irrigation: This is basically the process of flushing the infected and stale mucus out of the nasal cavity. Take a liter of sterile water, mix one tablespoon of kosher salt and baking soda each. Then with the help of a syringe or a neti pot, wash your nostrils with the solution. The mucus will start coming out and your nasal cavity will clear out.
  3. Use warm washcloth: Lie down and place a warm washcloth (a washcloth dipped in warm water and wringed) on your forehead and nose region. The warmth from the washcloth will break down the mucus and clear the congestion.

I have pain in my left ear for over 3 days. What should I do?

MS - ENT
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist,
I have pain in my left ear for over 3 days. What should I do?
If you had caught cold before pain ear it may be due to infection in which case you need to use antibiotics along with paracetamol for pain relief, but if pain due to wax impaction you need to use wax dissolving drops and similarly if any fungal infection is there you need to use antifungal ear drops. So better have check up with specialist and use prescription.

Related to ENT....have got ear infection couple fo months back and went to doctor. Medicines worked and the pain has gone. But, later after a month or so, whenever I am drinking water, slight pain in ear, tooth and around throat is suffered. Should it be ENT issue or dental issue. If so, what medicines would help

Pain in the tooth can get referred to the ear and not vice versa. I would suggest, you first see a dentist for your toothache.

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. Also take rhus tox 200 - thrice daily for next 3-4 days avoid cold/wetting in rain.

You are 20 kilos more than what you should be. With such an over weight, you will have snoring problem. You can fix up an appointment with bariatric physician (specialist doctor for weight loss) and under go the weight reduction treatment. It will reduce your weight through only fat loss, hence it will help you a lot in reducing the snoring.
