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.

I am suffering from sinus since last one month and I am also suffering from cough. What should I do please tell me.

MBBS
General Physician, Cuttack
1. Do steam inhalation 2-3 times daily with karvol plus inhalant capsule 2. Put otrivin nasal drop one thrice daily 3. Take a course of antibiotic after consulting doctor 4. If you are suffering from chronic sinusitis, take plain xray pns/ct scan of pns or nasal endoscopy after consulting ent specialist to confirm diagnosis 5. If you are having recurrent symptoms, you may have to undergo endoscopic sinus surgery.

Hi. Nose block and mouth breathing with snoring in night can cause dryness of throat and disturbed sleep. Long term disturbed sleep can affect your concentration. The reasons for your dry throat and disturbed sleep will have to be evaluated thoroughly.

It takes time as what treatment you are taking is right till now as per your test reports, tinnitus and vertigo is very common these days in any age group due to excess of noise exposure and damage to inner ear, humming sound, whistling and giddiness are the problems which are getting in people are very common these days, these get complicated when they are not taken care of at proper time whistling or buzzing in the ear is getting commoner these days in people of all ages. Most common causes is wax or any object in the ear, after getting your ears clean these gets over. But if ears are already clean than this is worrisome. Common causes which are responsible are high cholesterol diet, alcohol, smoking, loud noises, cervical spondylosis, trauma (self or inflicted) over the ears. If this is the situation than report to your ent doctor immediately tinnitus is basically due to hampered blood supply to ears due to which ears start dying. As this process starts a person starts hearing noises. When a person starts hearing noises then it is already late diagnosis as these noises gets heard by someone when they are of 40 db intensity, below that threshold these noises are not heard. So it is already to late and the damage has become permanent. Problem with these noises are that we can control at what level person goes to his specialist otherwise these noises keep on increasing and can give you headache frustration and depression.

There are two groups of antibiotics. Bactereostatic. Means they stop the germ to multiply and hence infection can not grow. The other group is called bactericidal. This means it kills the germ. Lincomycin belongs to the first and amoxycillin to the second. Customarily we prefer not to combine drugs from these the groups {except while treating duodenal ulcer by h. Pylori where amoxycillin and clarithromycin (bactereostatic) are used.}. I would suggest you to notify your doctor that you are already taking a course of lincomycin which perhaps you forgot to inform him.

Hello doctor, I am 36years old I need some advise to avoid snoring while sleeping which irritates me and others a lot.

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.

Yes there could be a link between non-clearance of bowels and owing to gas fainting for a moment. You need to keep your bowels clear in order to rule out other cause of fainting.

You maybe suffering from pharyngitis. Do warm saline gargle 3 times a day. If the symptoms persist you may have to take antibiotics. About the headache while using pc, you may have eye strain. Reduce eye strain by taking regular breaks, blinking your eyes often and try to optimize viewing distance. Please check your refractive power and see if you need spectacles. Use refresh tears three times a day.
