Kindly stop using otrivin. As, long usage of this, wil result in rebound nose block. You must be having dust allergy and sinusitis. Meet ENT specialist for antibiotic advice. Start steroid nasal spray for 2 month continuously. If no improvement in 3 weeks get a CT scan of PNS. Avoid dust, wear mask to reduce exposure while driving Do not take cold items With this we can keep disease under control. Remember there is no cure for dust allergy. We treat according to your symptoms. But with above treatment you can lead no rmal life without much problems.

Continue same treatment. This drops is safe for small babies and has no adverse effects as it is only saline drops and not any medicine. But if your baby has yellowish or thick mucus or have fever consult a pediatrician for further treatment.

Hello, your hearing status can be decided by seeing your report, whether it is corrected by surgery, medicine or hearing aid, depends on your status of ear mechanism. If infection persists for long it should be corrected by surgery only, if surgery fails. Then you go for a digital hg. Aid.

I have continuous sound ringing in my ears. First it started with the left ear and now it sounds in both the ears. I've been with this situation for almost 8 months. Once I've consulted a doctor who prescribed "cognix plus" apart from some other tabs, but there wasn't any change. I've read about this condition as "tinnitus " So how to ged rid of this.Please tell.

At your age this is mainly due to ear wax problem unless you are using ear phones and ear plugs, this is most dangerous cause for this as with this the trauma is irreversible and patient might require hearing aid with tinnitus masker, get the ear examination done from ear consultant and getthe diagnosis.

You may have enlarged turbinates or deviated nasal septum. It will be informative if you can take a photo of your nose in such a way that I can show inside of your nasal cavity. For proper visibility of interior of your nose, first cut the nasal hairs and take photo with flash. Send it to me so I can guide you further.

I have a problem of allergic rhinitis how it can be cured and what are the special remedies.
Some times what we think as allergic rhinitis is mainly sinusitis first thing you should go for ct scan of nose and sinus than treatment is based on grade of the sinus, if it is grade iv than no treatment is available or effective unless you get this corrected by surgery, surgery will give you nearly 80-90%. Than remaining you can treat with homeopathy than it will help. The bone of he nose gets deviated this leads to nose breathing problem if a person suffering from nasal obstruction along with sinusitis and mild to moderate nasal allergies it means most probably he is suffering from dns (deviated nasal septum. Nasal obstruction is because of the deviated portion of the nasal septum (this is the bony partition of the nose cavity. Allergies are because of the hampered muco-ciliary mechanism (normally mucus is produced in the nose to moisten our nose cavity, oral cavity, and help food bolus to move downward, this mucus is basically moves on the cilia of the nasal mucosa) this mechanism gets hampered and mucus start accumulating in the nose and sinus cavity which is why thick mucus comes from nose in patients of nose obstruction and person develops sinusitis. When a surgeon removes the nasal septum deviation has not been removed properly the symptoms persists, and patient thinks that the nose bone has again regrown. It is not because of regrowth but because of half surgery done or due to the non removal of the deviation (reason can be many) nowadays nasal septal deviation can be removed endoscopic ally. But if the sinusitis is grade ii or iii than there are possibility that you may get relief from symptoms.

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.

Hi there ~ sinusitis and headaches are common. If you feel heaviness in the head, pain worse with stooping forwards or bending forwards, runny nose with a post-nasal drip and also problems with itchy throat nose and ear block, you probably have severe sinusitis, either allergic, viral or bacterial. If it does not resolve by this evening or tomorrow morning despite good food, adequate sleep and plenty of fluids, please consult a general physician. Hope this helps.
