I have a consistent irritation in my throat for the past several weeks. No pain or cough. I am a very light smoker (1 or 2 sticks a day). Have tried using all sorts of cough syrups but the problem does not go away permanently. Result is I have to constantly clear my throat and it is very embarrassing to do repeatedly during meetings and social gatherings.

M.S(ENT),DNB,D.O.R.L, Laryngology fellow
ENT Specialist, Mumbai
Frequent throat clearing can very often be a result of acid reflux. Take C. Pan-D once daily ,on an empty stomach for 10 days Alex cough lozenges thrice daily for 5 days. If your problem persists, consult an ENT specialist for throat & laryngoscopic examination.

Ear hygiene and cleanig

Ear hygiene and cleanig

There is a tradition in a lot of families to clean ears regularly with ear buds or q tips and those who don't do it are many times considered unhygienic. But it may risk hearing ability. Inside ear is a very delicate structure and is likely to be damaged easily even with trivial trauma.

 

First, we must understand that wax has a useful role to play in the ear, it lubricates protects and renders antiseptic property. Ears without wax feel dry and itchy. Wax is self-cleaned from our ear canal propagated by movements of the jaw. So most of the times there is never any need to clean wax from inside the ears. The only external surface of the ear should be cleaned with a cloth.

 

Many times attempts to clean ears with ear buds results in injury to the delicate skin of ear canal and even worse it may injure the eardrum or if there is a wax chunk it may push deep into the eardrums.

 

Earwax needs to cleaned only when it obstructs the sound pathway to ear drum. When there is a feeling of fullness or blockage or plugged, there is a partial hearing loss there is ringing in the ears or tinnitus or noise in the ear or there is itching or odour in the ear.

 

Many times home remedies are useful to remove ear wax like instilling drops of mineral oil glycerine or commercially available drops. If not successful then it should be removed by ent surgeon. Ent surgeon may wash earwax out with warm water or saline. Sometimes ent surgeon may remove wax by suction or microinstruments under a microscope. There is no proven remedy for frequent wax impaction but it is very important to avoid inserting any object inside the ear to clean wax. Those who get frequent wax impaction or using hearing aids may need to see ent surgeon every 6 to 12 months to clean wax regularly.

You need to be checked for infection in the throat. And if it is there then you need to take antibiotics and analgesics. See an ent specialist.

I have developed the habit of snoring very heavily in recent times what should I do.

BAMS
Ayurveda, Bangalore
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.

I am having running nose for months together. Its not cough and cold. What to do. One ENT doctor suggested that it is due to allergy.

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Drink plenty of warm fluids. Drinking warm fluids helps to loosen the secretions in your sinuses so that your mucus flows more freely, making you feel better faster. Studies show that drinking warm fluids relieves cold symptoms such as runny nose, cough, sneezing, sore throat, and fatigue. For further queries get back to me.

Hi, Normal pulse rate is 70-80 per min. But your pulse rate is 109 per min. Which is high. This sinus tachycardia may be due to cardiac arrhythmias. Please consult a cardiologist for further management at the earliest.

Don't think so much Mr. lybrate-user.some people have a tendency for excess wax formation for such a small problem, you should not be afraid. In any case it's advisable to visit for regular checkup every year. You might visit ent doctor also.
