Dear sir I am From bengaluru, I got left ear operation under mastoid operation, so I cant left side of ear. Is it any medicines for that? please reply me sir.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Do you mean you can't hear in left ear after operation of mastoid. Hope you have talked to your ent surgeon about that. If not meet him again. Your hearing shall remain compromised as it was before operation. Operation of mastoid is done to prevent bigger serious complication, not for reviving hearing. You please consult your ent surgeon who has operated upon you, he shall be the best person give answer more specifically.

In case of itching in ears, do not put any ear budh or any other share object, oil or any other unprescribed medicines. Just have warm saying gargles/Steam inhalation. If there is no improvement, consult ENT specialist doctor.

Sore throat itself is not a big problem. In the initial phase, it can be very well controlled with antibiotics and analgesic tablets. Reduction in smelling sense is not related with sore throat. If problem persist then go for nose and throat examination.

Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
Are there other problems also like sneezing/nasal discharge/decreased smell? according to your problem it may be due to recurrence of problem or undercorrection at that time. Need of revision surgery can only be advised only after proper evaluation. Nasivion nasal drops 2-2-2-2 both side of nose will help.

Why do regular gym technically I am an athlete. Why do I suffer snoring problem. I'm just 23. It happens like I'm 30-40 yr. Mature man. I even feel bad to sleep near someone also. please Help me to get rid of it.

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.

Causes and Symptoms of Tonsillitis

MBBS, MS-ENT, DNB (ENT) -, DOHNS(LONDON) -

Causes and Symptoms of Tonsillitis

Tonsillitis is a disorder of the tonsils present on the back of your throat. The tonsils acts as a defensive mechanism in the body as they prevent the body from infections. This is a contagious condition and can occur at any age. It is widely prevalent among school going kids.

Tonsillitis may be classified into two types:

  1. Chronic tonsillitis: This type of tonsillitis tends to last for an extended duration with symptoms of bad breath and tenderness in the lymph nodes.
  2. Recurrent tonsillitis: This is a form of acute tonsillitis which repeats itself over a year.

Causes: Tonsils prevent various virus and bacteria from entering the body through the mouth by producing antibodies. The tonsils, however, may become vulnerable to these infections. A virus that causes common cold or the bacteria that causes strep throat may result in tonsillitis. The most common cause of this disorder is the strep bacteria. School going children are especially vulnerable to this disorder because they are most prone to various infections.

The various viruses that may cause tonsillitis are:

  1. Enterovirus
  2. Herpes simplex virus
  3. Epstein-Barr virus
  4. Influenza virus
  5. Adenovirus
  6. Parainfluenza virus

Common symptoms: 
The various symptoms of tonsillitis are

  1. Swallowing difficulties
  2. A sore throat
  3. The sore throat may result in bad breath
  4. You may experience fever and chills
  5. Pain in the head, ear and stomach
  6. You may experience stiffness in the neck and the jaw
  7. Swollen tonsils with possible redness
  8. Changes in voice
  9. Symptoms of cold

Treatment: The treatment for tonsillitis is usually antibiotics and in some cases, tonsillectomy. The antibiotics help in getting rid of the bacterial infection. Surgery is only done in cases where tonsillitis is chronic in nature. It is important that you drink fluids and restrict smoking to prevent tonsillitis.
