1. It could be due to sinusitis or allergic pharyngitis 2. Do betadine gargling 2-3 times daily 3. Avoid smoking 4. Take x ray pns to exclude sinusitis. If it is normal then it could be due to allergic pharyngitis 5. Do an allergy test after consulting allergist/immunologist and follow advice and treatment accordingly.

Hello, you can apply baking soda or do baking soda in water mouth rinses. This will help to heal your ulcers. If they still persist, you need to consult a physician and get your vitamin B levels checked. If required, you can take supplements for it.

Hi lybrate-user if it's allergy you need a planned treatment. A few words to make you understand. Dust allergy is partly genetic and partly environmental. Thus it never goes away. With better, less dusty environment  the extent if the problem gets reduced. Medicines help to downregulate the immune response of your body to these environmental allergens. Long term lifestyle  changes with gradually tapering medication  helps to tackle chronic sinus problems.  Start taking Steam inhalation twice a day. *For chronic allergic rhinosinusitis you will need to take a long term course of antibiotics  together  with Nasal sprays. *You will need to avoid dusty environment  and dust mites, animal dander etc. Regular cleaning of AC air filters. Wearing mask while driving 2 wheelers/working in dusty  areas Medical  management  is done for 3 months and then patients  condition is reviewed.  Intermittent treatment is not beneficial  in the long run.

Hi lybrate-user What is your occupation? What happened 2 months back that caused the right forearm pain. Does the pain travel to your shoulder and neck? We need to find out the cause of pain to treat it completely. Please do basic neck and shoulder exercises (move neck up down left right and in circles. Move arms in cilced forwards and backwards) to relax your muscles in that area. If pain in unbearable you can take a simple pain killer or if interested in homeopathy take Mag phos 200 3 pills 3 times a day for a week. Please feel free to contact if you have any more questions.

Sir, How much tym does nasal polyps takes to regrow after operated. Does it have permanent cure?

MBBS, MS ENT
ENT Specialist,
Sir,
How much tym does nasal polyps takes to regrow after operated. Does it have permanent cure?
It depends upon the etiology. If the polyps are fungal in origin, then chance of recurrence is high. Also in a country like India where dust and pollution is everywhere, curing polyps is very difficult cos the patient goes back to the same environment after surgery. I have had many patients who never had recurrence after they settled in Europe or America. Middle East and Asia are hot and dusty which is perfect for polyps. Plus genetic factors like allergy, asthma, etc also increase recurrence. Polyps and allergy/asthma go hand in hand. Has any physician promised you a cure for asthma? The same goes for polyps. We can remove them by surgery and prescribe inhalers to prevent them from growing back. If you take 100 patients, polyps tend to grow back in 30 who require resurgery. 60 pts have small polyps but have good control of symptoms in whom we treat medically. 10 patients are totally symptom free and have no polyps.

How Hoarseness Can be Treated

MBBS, MS-ENT, DNB (ENT) -, DOHNS(LONDON) -
ENT Specialist, Gurgaon
How Hoarseness Can be Treated

Hoarseness in the simplest sense means, 'hoarse voice'. It may be defined as an abnormal voice change. It is experienced in the form of strained, rough, thick, harsh and grating voice. Variations can be felt even in the loudness and pitch of the voice.

Hoarseness is a temporary infection associated with the larynx, which is also known as the voice box in animals as well as humans. Vocal cords are present inside the voice box. Depending on the vibration of the vocal cord, different sounds are produced.

What are the general causes of hoarseness?

Hoarseness may be caused by common cold, viral infection, cough, irritation due to screaming, smoking, allergy, thyroid problem, acute laryngitis and benign tumor. In adults, the stomach asset comes up to the throat causing hoarseness. Heartburn can also be one of the causes.

When hoarseness arises due to common cold and cough, it will last for 2 to 3 days and will subside using cough suppressant and home remedies like salt water gargling, drinking hot milk with turmeric and pepper powder. As cough or cold suppress, hoarseness will also reduce.

When to see an Otolaryngologist (ENT specialist)?

Serious infections in ear nose and throat are treated by an otolaryngologist. It is very essential to consult this specialist if hoarseness lasts for more than 2 to 3 weeks; pain in ENT is not due to cold or flu, coughing up blood, lump in the neck.

Evaluation: The medical specialist starts his diagnosis by physically examining the vocal cord. Flexible light weight fiber optic tube scope is also used to visually examine the larynx area. Videotaping, acoustic analysis is also done to study voice irregularities, airflow to guide treatment.

How can hoarseness be treated?

The mode of treatments depends on underlying the cause of the problem. The patient may be advised:

  1. In most cases, hoarseness can be treated just by resting your throat or modifying the use of your voice.
  2. To avoid smoking or passive smoking
  3. Referred to a speech therapist to improve sound of voice.
  4. In case of benign tumor the nodule or polyp is removed by surgery.

How can you prevent hoarseness?

We've all heard the phrase, 'prevention is better than cure'. Alas, it is. Preventing hoarse voice and throat is a much better option than treating it. Here are some tips on how to prevent hoarseness:

  • Avoid smoking
  • Avoid overconsumption of caffeine and alcohol.
  • Consume plenty of water
  • Avoid eating spicy food.
  • Avoid speaking loudly for long intervals of time.

Aspirin should not be used in children during a viral illness. -Wear comfortable loose fitting clothes and donot overdress.
