Hi if you have never experienced this problem, then you need to start *an antibiotic immediately. *a decongestant medicine *avoid water entry in the ear. *avoid shampooing for atleast 10 days till the ear discharge dries up. *get a pure tone audiometry and tympanometry done. These tests can detect ear drum perforation. Otoendoscopy may also be done ear discharge may occur due to acute or chronic otitis media. Your symptoms appear to be of acute otitis media. In this case ear discharge occurs after a small perforation I the ear drum due to pus buildup. But if you have had the problem previously too it may be due to chronic otitis media. In that case you have to also start an ear drop and may need surgery.

There are many reasons for nose bleed like bleeding polypus, any tumor, hypertension, side effects of drugs and other systemic illness or bleeding disorder that can only be find out after clinical examination. Atleast you should get a complete blood count with bt&ct done and review with report. For bleeding use nasivion nasal drops 2-2-2-2.

I have deviated septum towards left 4 month before I got sinusitis with maxillary and I have deviated sputum I have blocked nose always can not breath from left nose or sometime from right nose and I have ringing on ear every time I feel ear congested so please help me please suggest me something doc thanks in regards.

DORL, MBBS

Dear lybrate-user, what you are having is due to nose problem entirely. Weather change and anatomical variation of the nose leads to change in the aerodynamics of the nose hence leads to watery nose this most of the time is over sensitivity on nose to outer environment, and we consider this as allergy all the time. Sinus is a normal roomy structure around nasal cavity its infection called sinusitis, if a person suffering from nasal obstruction along with sinusits 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 sinusiits. 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 endoscopically. Everything is explained in this, I hope this will benefit you. And for ringing in ears you must get your ears checked which is audiometry at any of the ear centre.

Check your weight, are you overweight? do you have conditions like diabetes or hypertension? do you feel weak or sleepy during daytime? if answer to any is yes, then you may have to be checked for a condition known as obstructive sleep apnea. For that you need a test called polysimnography. Contact your local lung specialist for that. This condition is manageable.

I'm suffering from nasal polyps. Is it mandatory to do operation or can be curable by medicine?

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
It depends on extension of disease that can be assessed by ct scan. If disease is limited it can be treated by medication and nasal spray otherwise surgery (fess i. E functional endoscopic sinus surgery) is preferred choice for nasal polyps with less chance of recurrence if done properly and using latest instruments like microdebrider.
