"For mild sore throat, try with salt water gargles using little warm water, taking care not to use too hot water, and take pain killer if required. If you are not ok in 1-2 days, consult back. Try sending picture of your throat. If you have fever, you may need additional medicines as well. If symptoms are severe, please consult an ENT Doctor immediately. Please see that it may be more beneficial if you add honey and salt to the gargle solution. Add 1 spoon of honey and half spoon of salt to half glass of water to make gargle solution. Also, if you are s smoker, you need to quit smoking and alcohol.

Dear, No need to worry if there is no swelling. The pain may be because of the choking and pressure. The pain will go off slowly. But if pain increases and the swelling appears consult nearby doctor. And dear don’t try to fight again like this. Anger may stay for temporary but it can damage permanently.

I'm suffering from Vertigo. When I wake up or going to sleep it starts and it is for very short period or moment. I m taking homeopathic treatment.what can be done for this condition?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
A modified epley maneuver is a type of physical therapy often prescribed that involves head and body movements done while sitting on a bed. Traditionally, it is performed in a doctor or physical therapist's office, but it may also be prescribed to do at home. Once a patient has received proper instruction, this maneuver can resolve symptoms within a week for many patients. Vitamin d supplementation may be beneficial for patients diagnosed with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. Your doctor can check to see if you have a vitamin d deficiency. Herbal remedies such as ginger root, ginkgo biloba, and coriander may help reduce vertigo symptoms in some people. Acupuncture may be helpful in resolving symptoms of some types of vertigo.

Hi the ear canal is a tortuous one and therefore it is unlikely that you would have injured your drum. You will have to take antibiotics and analgesics for the trauma caused to the canal.

When I sleep, my left nostril gets clogged if I sleep on my left side and the right nostril if I sleep on my right side. Is this the start of the sinusitis? what should I do?

M B B S, M. D (Internal Medicine)
General Physician, Nellore
It is a normal phenomenon. It is called nasal cycling. At any given time, we are mostly breathing through one nostril only. You can test yourself at any time. You will find that most of your breathing is through one nostril only. Usually, people do not notice any change except when they are having cold, running nose etc. If the patient has noticed it even when there is no cold, then it probably is first time observation by patient or patient has hypertrophied turbinates. But, it is unlikely to be hypertrophied turbinates since you are saying it has started both sides at the same time. You have merely made an observation of something that has always been happening.
