Hi, sore throat is usually accompanied by pain. Here are a few steps that you may follow in general to either cure or avoid getting sore throat. Try avoiding constipation at all costs. (a) healthy & balanced diet with focus on fresh fruits/ leafy greens. (b) consume flesh foods in moderation. (c) take plenty of water daily. (d) regularize life style, reduce stress/ strain. (e) protect yourself from intense heat/ cold air. (f) do not take extremely hot/ cold drinks. (g) warm saline gargling 2 - 3 times daily. (h) gargle made of tulsi, turmeric or fenugreek seeds are also beneficial. (i) avoid overcrowded places. Hope the above-mentioned shall help. You may still connect with me in private to discuss and come up with a treatment plan that suits you/ family members in particular.

I have been suffering from severe sinusitis and I got medication for it, then it controlled and now again I have recurring episodes of it like severe breathlessness during nights, throat pain etc. Is there any sort of permanent cure for sinusitis. Kindly suggest me if it is there.

D.N.B, D.L.O
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Bangalore
Hello lybrate-user there is no permanent treatment for sinusitis. It occurs due to allergy so as you cannot get rid of allergens like pollen dust its unlikely to cure it for ever. Jus that you can take precautions to avoid dust exposure, avoid strong odours, wash the linen regularly avoid pets. If sinusitis is secondary to deviations of central partition in nose you can try for surgery options. Take care.

I am 48 years old having Diabetes (upto 210 after 2.5 hrs of meal. While sleeping my throat becomes dry. Please advise.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for your query. PP 210 mg after 2.5 hours is high. It is better if you had given following readings: FBG, PP (after 2 hours) & HbA1c%, that would have given a clear idea of your blood glucose control. Usually if blood glucose is high, then more glucose is passed in the urine, which in turn leads to excess thirst and dryness of throat. So it is essential to control blood glucose effectively. FBG should be <100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Hence if you have any doubts please come in a private conversation with all the above details plus, deitary pattern and extent of daily exercise being done, then I will be able to guide specifically. Thanks.

I usually do not get any complaints of my snoring, but since last week or so, ever since I migrated to a new place, apparently I am snoring. Are there any specific causes for this and how can it be cured?

BAMS
Ayurveda, Bangalore
Hi, snoring occurs when a person is not able to move the air through the nose and throat while sleeping. As aresult, the air vibrates the surrounding tissues and causes snoring sound. Causes of snoring are obesity, nasal problems such as blocked nose due to nasal septal deviation, polyp or sinusitis, smoking, consumption of tobacco, intake of alcohol, sleeping pills, relaxed throat muscles in elderly and tonsillitis in children. 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.

Nose gets blocked once I lie down to sleep. Have to use a decongestant Like ortinoz daily to clear block. Also mucus forms and throat has to be cleared while eating food. What is effective treatment for dust and automobile pollution allergy?

DORL, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Faridabad
Nose blockade on lying down is due to dryness in the nose keep yourself hydrated in this dry weather, take good amount of semi solids like shakes lemon juices, sugarcane juice, and lassie curds any of milk products like cold coffee, hot coffee, this will definitely benefit you. If you do not get the solution than get ct scan done for nose, never self medicate with decongestant this will lead to further blockade, if your nose is well hydrated with mucus than dust and pollution does not produce allergy as this mucus layer acta as protective layer,
