This is due to the blockage of connection between nose and ears, this is a tube which connects ear with nose after this get blocks you have this kind of problem, keep chewing for this and do not clean your nose so abruptly. If this does not open than need to go to ear surgeon.

If you are getting repeated throat infections particularly the tonsils than you need to get rid of them surgically, there is no harm in it, if you get 7-8 infections in ayear of moderate degree than surgery is the only option.

Pain in throat may be due to allergy cum infection in throat. Through examination of throat is required. If required after taking throat swab for culture and sensitivity, accordingly antibiotics and antihistamincs, analgesics can be given.

Hello throat issues arise either due to infection of throat proper either tonsils or back of throat pharyngitis. But since you have cough it implies there might be some phlegm trickling back of your throat from sinuses into voice box region causing constant cough. You can benefit by doing steam inhalation which will clear the sinuses and stopping the phlegm trickling down. For cough you can use warm water with honey, lozenges like tusq. If you have allergy issues that triggers an attack of allergic bronchitis leading to allergic cough. Take precautions of avoiding exposure to strong odour, dust exposure. Take care.

Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
This condition is called som i. E serous otitis media that occurs due to eustachian tube blockage that equalizes pressure across ear drum. When it is blocked due to any infection in nose or throat or any mass in nose, fluid accumulates behind ear drum. Start tab. Sinarest twice a day, nasivion nasal drops 2-2-2-2 and steam inhalation twice a day. Get an impedance audiometry done and send me report.

I am very concerned about my nose size and I am seeing increase in my nose size after I have started working out. Is workout the reason for this or is it just an illusion? Should I use all the nose exercise available on Internet? Are they good?

MS - ENT, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Bangalore
Workout in gym or exercise training will never cause a change in the size of the nose. If you feel that the nose is too big, consult a good ent surgeon.

My father had tb of larynx with primary focal point in lungs last year for which he took medication for 6 months. His sputum test showed negative afb. We assumed he recovered. However, he never gained weigh again after that, and in fact, he lost further weight. On biopsy of enlarged adrenal gland seen in us, the report showed tb of adrenal gland. Now he has again started taking his old tb medication. Can I know how do we go further about it. Will he be fine taking the same medication again? how do we know if the medication is still working?

MD PULMONARY, DTCD
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
Was u/s done at first treatment also. If tb of lung/larynx was cured by previous treatment tb of adrenal should also be cured. Any other symtoms excepy wt loss. Get biopsy slide examined from second pathologist. If tb of adrenal only now then by repeat u/s and reduction in tb symtoms. Treatment has to continued for one to one and half year, as it appear to be haematogenous tb.
