It's well known that prevention is better than cure. A simple holistic approach towards life is required. Get your friend checked by a doctor and also do all the tests suggested by him. Exercise daily,(and add 1 hrs of yoga which will help harmonise all the systems of the body.) Eat in moderation and avoid all junk food and salty things (minimise salt intake). Let the doctor diagnose what exactly is the problem and start the treatment. Do not change the medications or alter them without his advise.

Hi, for your nasal allergy issue, you may try the following: (a) use a paediatrics saline nasal spray twice daily (b) identify allergens that trigger allergy in your nose/ allergic rhinitis and avoid them. (c) make sure you keep your nostrils clean. Wash with water daily. (d) take a glass of warm water, to which a tsp of pure honey and third of a lemon are mixed properly, daily morning empty stomach. (e) take half a glass of warm water to which 1/4 tsp freshly ground turmeric and a piece of black pepper (crushed) are mixed properly, post dinner, for 5 days. (f) streamline your diet and lifestyle. Focus on fresh fruits and leafy greens, restrict spicy, oily, fatty and flesh foods. (g) stay relaxed and keep your stress levels low. Daily yoga, pranayam and meditation help de-stress. Please follow steps (d) & (e) as mentioned above only if you have no allergy or other issues taking them. As regards your issue with bone, you may please consult an ent specialist who needs to examine you clinically and advise diagnostics as appropriate to figure out any constitutional deformities or any sort of growth in your nose that is causing problems and then advise accordingly. Hope this help you.

If you have voice related problem, you should see an ent surgeon and get the video laryngoscopy done too see the movement of your vocal cords and any leisons on them. Be careful while singing. Please sing after getting trained by a proper professional singer. Donot strain your voice too much. Rehydrate your throat frequently by sipping water frequently. Sometimes steam inhalations may help.

Hello, Severe pain in ear may be because of ear infection or furuncle in ear or wax. Ear infection mostly follows cold and cough. Furuncle mostly after ear pricking. Wax lead to blockage sensation. Depending on cause treatment varies. Thanks

I have nose leakage And Blocking Problems From 2 or 3 months Recently I visited a doctor he said that I have a sinus operation And my question is What is sinus operation and what is exactly done in sinus operation?

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Hi lybrate-user. Sinusitis occurs bcz of inadequate drainage of sinus that may be due to many reasons like mass or polyps in nose or deviated septum or polypoidal mucosa due to allergy. Surgery for sinusitis is called FESS (functional endoscopic sinus surgery) in which underlying pathology is removed and sinus drainage is restored. But before that you need to get a CT scan done to know about the underlying pathology. Review with report.

I am male 19 year old and I am tense with ringing in my ears!(tinnitus)can you help me out with this! also some methods to stay positive ?

MS , MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Bangalore
Ringing in the ears could be because of many reasons including ear wax, sensorineural deafness, rarely a tumor of the nerve. It could be even giving too much attention to the sound which is normally present due to cochlear microphonics and gets accentuated because of being too conscious about it.
