Dear , Think of working with your communication and enhancing your self-belief in certain area of life. Throat is often influenced by a powerful energy center called vishuddhi chakra. Activating this energy center through meditation could reduce the frequency and intensity of your throat problems.

Picking Your Nose Secretly - Can It Be Harmful for Your Body?

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Jaipur
Picking Your Nose Secretly - Can It Be Harmful for Your Body?

Do you have a habit of secretly picking your nose? This is a very common bad habit, which many people carry out, in spite of it being a habit which is frowned upon. There is a certain amusement that people seem to enjoy about picking the nose. However, on top of being a very unhealthy and unhygienic habit, it is harmful for the body as well.

Why should you stop picking your nose?

Picking your nose is quite dangerous for your body. Your fingers contain many harmful germs, which are transmitted into your nostrils when you are digging into your nose. A specific germ known as Staphylococcus aureus can live in the front part of your nose. Combining the habit of nose picking along with the germs, may lead to the development of abrasions. These abrasions can bleed and promote more germs. As a result, the crust and irritation increase the more you keep on picking your nose. Based on where you are and what you have touched with your hands, some seriously dangerous germs may enter your body, causing health hazards and complications.

Children are notorious by nature and it is very common among children to pick their nose resulting in nose bleeding. The blood supply to the nose is quite vigorous in nature and there are five arteries that reach to the front part of the nose or Kisselbach’s plexus. When an abrasion takes place, there are chances of severe bleedings, due to damage to these fragile arteries.

Other reasons

  1. Picking your nose may lead to the development of pimples in the nose hair follicles.

  2. In case a small pimple in the nose develops into a boil, the infection may travel to the brain through your bloodstream.

  3. In case you are suffering from cold and your sinus is blocked, picking your nose may lead to the development of sinusitis. This happens because of the introduction of various bacteria present beneath your fingernails into the nose. They may proceed to the sinus cavity from your nose. Due to insufficient drainage, the bacteria will multiply and cause a sinus infection.

  4. Picking your nose on a regular basis makes your nose a breeding group of dangerous germs. If you do not wash your hands after picking your nose, these germs may be transmitted to others.

If you feel some irritation in your nose or feel a constant stuffiness, you should use a tissue paper to soothe your nostrils. Avoid using your fingers for picking and if the irritation lasts even after cleaning it, you should consult a doctor.

Why Do You Get an EAR Discharge?

MBBS, MS - ENT
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
Why Do You Get an EAR Discharge?

What are the causes and symptoms of ear discharge?

Ear discharge is the phenomenon of fluids being expelled from the ear. This condition is also known as otorrhea.

The kinds of fluids that can be discharged from the ear range from blood to pus and other forms of bodily secretions. It is caused by a number of factors, which determine the exact nature of the condition and the diagnosis for treatment.

What are the causes of ear discharge?

Some forms of ear discharge are natural, such as ear wax which is produced by the body as a form of defense against external particles that may enter the ears. Other forms are unnatural and result from anomalies in the health system.

The causes of these include the following:

  • Infections: This is the most common cause of ear discharge and occurs when bacteria and viruses infest the inside of the ear and lead to the secretion of fluids, which builds up in the middle ear or at the eardrum
  • Swimmer’s Ear: This condition is also known as otitis externa and is caused by staying in water for prolonged periods. It results from excessive exposure to moisture that makes the walls of the ear canal to break down allowing bacteria and fungi to enter and infect the ear.
  • Trauma: Excess pressure on the eardrum can cause it to rupture and discharge fluids. This happens due to a number of reasons such as exposure to loud explosive sounds or pressure from flying in aircrafts and scuba diving.
  • Skull Injury: Damage to the bones behind the ear as a result of injury can also lead to ear discharge due to infection.
  • Tonsillitis:  Inflammation of tonsils may cause pain or a repeated infection in the ear leading to fluid discharge.

What are the symptoms associated with ear discharge?

Some of the symptoms of otorrhea are as follows:

  • Abnormal and unusual secretion of fluids from the ear
  • Swelling of the ear
  • Partial or complete loss of hearing
  • Pain and throbbing in the ear
  • Accompanying signs such as fever and migraine

Diagnosis and treatment of the problem depend on the exact cause and nature of the condition, which also determines treatment and recovery time.

Cannot see the pic of your nose which you have uploaded. But yes Rhinoplasty can be the answer for an unusually large nose. However keep realistic expectations and tell your doctor what exactly you want. Thick skin means it will be a difficult surgery to give you great results. Please visit a plastic surgeon with photos of your nose in all angles to get a proper idea.

I hav bn suffering frm sinusitis since last 20 yrs, is dere any medicine which can completely free me frm this stupid sinusitis?

MS - ENT,MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Kolkata
Hi if you have been suffering  from 6 years it's likely you have chronic sinusitis  which may also be allergic . Get a CT PNS done. Or if you have one  done share the CT /Xray Long term lifestyle  changes with gradually tapering medication  helps to tackle chronic sinus problems.  Start taking Steam inhalation twice a day. *For chronic sinusitis 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. Medical  management  is done for 3 months and then your condition is reviewed.  Intermittent treatment is not beneficial  in the long run. Chronic sinusitis is a condition  that develops due to persistent  infection or allergy in your sinuses. We need to improve the drainage of the sinus cavity by steam inhalation  .Medicines like Monteleukast with levocetirizine  help to decrease the tissue response to dust and allergy. They help in decreasing the inflammatory  changes due to allergic stimuli. Togerher with this the nasal sprays will help improve locally the Nasal  blockage. A disciplined medical therapy will help you live better. But incomplete treatment leads to polyps, Pansinusitus,complications  and poor quality of life. Investigations : CTPNS CBC with ESR &AEC PPBS FT3/FT4/TSH These tests will help us have an idea about your general immune status and check for any problems you may have. Treatment : Start Steam inhalation  (mandatory  )twice a day &Start have plenty of fruits and vegetables  in your diet. A course of vitamin B complex and C (no harm in continuing this if you can't have a balanced diet due to any reason) Add a probiotic supplement to your regular meals. Have sleep for atleast 7 to 8 hours. Exercise atleast for 30 minutes  every day. If you work in dusty environment   wear a mask. Air conditioned rooms the air filters should be ideally washed every week. The dust trappers in AC UNIT spread the germs very rapidly. If you are unable to ensure regular cleaning of AIR conditioners atleast try not to sit directly in front  of them. While working in the computer try to tilt  the screen to avoid glare .Take 5 min break every half an hour. Drink Plenty of water. Avoid smoking and secondary smoke. You can share your reports on Lybrate (no charge )as you get them done. Review with me after 10 days of Antibiotic and I will start you on long term medicines. Kindly also let me know any other medical  issues you may have. Kindly let me know about your workplace and living environment  (Air pollution level, general cleanliness. Then I can help you even more Unfortunately Lybrate doesn't allow prescription of medicines in open forum CT PNS and nasal endoscopy+your symptoms helps us decide surgical course of treatment.

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 thenose 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. To reduce weight, perform yoga or do some physical exercises or go to a gym and work out. Avoid high caloried food like sweets, oil fried food, carbohydrate rich food. Take rotis or ragi balls and plenty of raw or cooked vegetables and fruits.
