Hello. am 18 years old. I was smoking cigarettes by one and half years. I am not a chain smoker I will smoke two cigarettes per day but one day I found some small amount of blood in my mucus I got scared and I am suffering from tonsillitis infection also. I will be gettingtreatpain some days. So what is the cause for getting blood in mucus. Is this happened because of tonsillitis infection or by smoking. Now from three months I had quitted smoking.

MBBS, MS - ENT
ENT Specialist, Ahmedabad
I would like to congratulate you for quitting smoking first. Regarding blood in mucus you need systematic approach to find the cause. First a dental check up is needed, then a thorough ent check up is required and finally a chest physician's opinion is needed. This will be a complete work up for your problem. And remember most of the people who quit smoking they restart in one year so be strong and be prepared to avoid several opportunities may come your way to restart smoking.

I had sinus or migraine as one side face ache? Severe one sided face ache frequently what is it cure?

MBBS, MD - Anaesthesiology, FIPM, Fellowship in palliative medicine, certificate in interventional pain management
Pain Management Specialist, Pune
One sided facial pain is not due to migraine. It can be due to: 1. Tooth infection: Consult a dentist first to rule out dental pathology as cause of facial pain. 2. Sinusitis: Associated nasal congestion, features of upper respiratory infections are present. ENT consultation is needed. 3. Trigeminal Neuralgia: Sharp,shooting electric shock like pain in bursts felt along particular part of face It is easily relieved with medication and if needed intervention like Gasserian ganglion block. Consult a pain specialist for this. 4. Idiopathic facial pain: This condition is simply facial pain without any reason. This can be managed by medication and if needed injection. Consult a pain specialist for this. For detailed evaluation and treatment accordingly consult with a pain specialist.

Is it a myth that one shouldn't use ear buds daily? If yes, then how frequent for people staying in polluted city like Mumbai?

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
ENT Specialist, Delhi
We should not use ear buds Bcz while using that one can push the wax deep inside the canal that will be more difficult to remove or one can also perforate the ear drum Bcz of improper assessment of depth of ear drum.So better to avoid using this.

Hi I think I got symptoms for tonsil stones. Cream coloured smelling pigment coming rarely come out, bad mouth breath some time, rashes in throat, is it tonsil stone or anything else? What should I do? Some remedies or prescription please.

Hi I think I got symptoms for tonsil stones. Cream coloured smelling pigment coming rarely come out, bad mouth breath...
Gargling with warm salty water might help in the early stages. This might even dislodge the stones, but it can take some time. Continue this treatment for at least two weeks, and you might want to add some grapefruit extract to the water. Anti-septic mouthwashes are an effective alternative to salty water.

I am 41 years old. Having a snoring problem. I am over weight. Tried to reduce but failed. Please guide me.

I am 41 years old. Having a snoring problem. I am over weight. Tried to reduce but failed. Please guide me.
Hi Lybrate User, You have not reduced weight because you may be focussing at the wrong place. FIRSTLY - Weight is not the problem. The real problem are the habits which contribute to your weight. Just like when you get bad marks in Exams... the problem is not Marks... the real problem is lack of studies. You have to understand the issue at hand. You have to aim for fitness. You have to aim for good health. You have to aim for nutritious diet. When your aim is right... your results will be right. Junk food is an addiction... Get rid of friends or your company which is forcing you to ruin your health. If your home food is too rich... take charge and change food habits of everyone at home. Don't let life slip by like this. Extra weight will cause immense problems in your life just like 1. snoring you have mentioned. It is better if you get your complete body checkup done from a lab including Blood Pressure.. Then consult a dietician + join a fitness program. Change your life today.. Be healthy .. be fit.. live happy.

You are misusing your voice. As a result your voice has become harsh. First and foremost you need to stop shouting completely. Take complete voice rest for 2 days. That means no talking for 2 days, not even whisper. And then get back to speech therapist for further exercises

Tonsillectomy - When Should You Go For It?

MBBS, MS - ENT
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Tonsillectomy - When Should You Go For It?

The tonsils are soft tissue masses which are located at the back of your throat, usually at the pharynx. The tonsils are masses which are part of the lymphatic system that helps fight infections. However, tonsils can themselves become inflamed and cause a lot of pain. Tonsillectomy is a procedure to remove the tonsils and relieve pain.

Why is tonsillectomy performed?
A few decades back, tonsillectomy was a routine surgery performed to relieve any pain within the tonsils. This method of treatment however has changed over the past few decades as pain medications for inflammation have improved vastly. However, tonsillitis is still performed in many cases wherein it tends to cause acute problems. Some of the cases it is applicable in are:

  1. Chronic bad breath problems caused by recurrent inflammation of the tonsils
  2. Recurrent sore throats caused by tonsillitis
  3. It is also done along with dental surgery for correcting teeth with imperfect positioning
  4. Abscess formation in the mouth
  5. Upper airway being obstructed due to inflammation, thus causing difficulty with sleeping, snoring, or causing sleep apnea (irregular breathing during sleep)
  6. Ear infections being regularly caused by inflammation of the tonsils

Other reasons why it may be recommended
Tonsillectomy may be also be recommended when there are no indications of problems but tonsillitis and other infections keep cropping up too regularly. This affects children and can make them sick or keep them in pain regularly. Some of these other indications are mentioned below:

  1. Tonsil infections and inflammations happening too frequently within a year
  2. Tonsillitis is caused by bacterial infection wherein the antibiotics aren’t effective
  3. Formation of pus in the form of an abscess within or around the tonsils which keep forming even after repeated drainage or administering antibiotics

Possible complications and risks
Like any other form of surgery, tonsillectomy has certain risks associated with it as well. However, these are very rare. Some of these risks and complications are mentioned as follows –

  1. Swelling of the mouth: The tongue and the soft palate or the roof of the mouth may swell, resulting in breathing difficulties an few hours after the surgery.
  2. Infection: As is the case with any surgery, infections may occur in rare cases, which may require further treatment.
  3. Adverse reactions to anesthetics: Many patients exhibit an adverse reaction to anesthetics and may develop symptoms such as a headache, nausea, muscle soreness and frequent vomiting.
  4. Bleeding during surgery or healing: Although it is rare, bleeding during and after surgery has been reported after all sorts of procedures and it may occur with tonsillectomy as well. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ENT specialist.
