The best therapy that has the potential to totally cure the condition is panchakarma. Go for vaman karma in this season & see the difference for yourself.

1. Do steam inhalation 2-3 times daily with karvol plus inhalant capsule 2. Put otrivin nasal drop one tablet thrice daily 3. Take a course of antibiotic after consulting doctor 4. If you are suffering from chronic sinusitis, take plain xray pns/ct scan of pns or nasal endoscopy after consulting ent specialist to confirm diagnosis 5. If you are having recurrent symptoms, you may have to undergo endoscopic sinus surgery.

I just wanted to ask why your stomach bulges and then shrinks when you inhale and exhale.Please tell.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

I just wanted to ask why your stomach bulges and then shrinks when you inhale and exhale.Please tell.
During normal relaxed breathing, your stomach will gently move up and down as you breath in and out. This is due to the fact that the diaphragm presses down on contents of your stomach during inspiration causing it to bulge out.

Why we feel like brain is moving during at the stage of sinusitis? Is there any permanent solution for this problem with medicines? Please reply to my question?

DORL, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Faridabad
Nothing is permanent dear, how can medicine give yu permanent solution, take good diet, fruits, salads and iron rich diet. Sinus is a normal roomy structure around nasal cavity its infection called sinusitis, if a person suffering from nasal obstruction along with sinusitis and mild to moderate nasal allergies it means most probably he is suffering from dns (deviated nasal septum. Nasal obstruction is because of the deviated portion of the nasal septum (this is the bony partition of the nose cavity. Allergies are because of the hampered muco-ciliary mechanism (normally mucus is produced in the nose to moisten our nose cavity, oral cavity, and help food bolus to move downward, this mucus is basically moves on the cilia of the nasal mucosa) this mechanism gets hampered and mucus start accumulating in the nose and sinus cavity which is why thick mucus comes from nose in patients of nose obstruction and person develops sinusits. When a surgeon removes the nasal septum deviation has not been removed properly the symptoms persists, and patient thinks that the nose bone has again regrown. It is not because of regrowth but because of half surgery done or due to the non removal of the deviation (reason can be many) nowadays nasal septal deviation can be removed endoscopic-ally.

1. Do a complete blood examination like cbc, esr, mantoux test, x ray chest, sputum examination for afb (3 samples) 2. Consult chest physician with report. 3 do warm saline gurgling 3-4 times daily 4. Avoid smoking if you smoke 5. If all the test reports are normal, it could be due to allergy. Do an allergy test after consulting allergist/immunologist and follow the advice and treatment.

Respiratory tract infection should not be taken lightly in children who may not manifest fever. Get a pediatrician opinion. Till then keep the child warm, give plenty of fluid, rest and paracetamol if fever. Antibiotics like amoxycillin can be tried.

I've been having trouble coughing for a while , I mean whenever I cough I get hiccups . This has been going on for few years . Should I be concerned? I've been told it might be because of poor lung capacity. I haven't been diagnosed with any serious medical conditions.
