I am 16 year old and I am suffering from bad breath from last 3 months and I think it is due to sinus infection. So could tell me what should I do?

1. Halitosis could be due to poor oral hygiene/ gingivitis/caries tooth/ smoking/tobacco chewing/dry mouth/ sinusitis 2. Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth twice daily, clean tongue thoroughly 3. Rinse your mouth with hexidine/betadine mouth wash 2-3 times daily 4. Avoid smoking/chewing tobacco if any 5. Use dental flush to clean food particle stuck in between teeth 6. Consult dentist for examination of oral cavity and follow advice and treatment accordingly 7. If you have chronic sinusitis, do endoscopic sinus surgery after consulting ent specialist.

Gargling with warm salt water is an effective way to treat a sore throat. Salt can even help kill the bacteria or virus causing pharyngitis.

Sore Throat - Homeopathic Remedies For It!

BHMS,NDDY

Sore Throat - Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Homeopathy is considered to be an untested medicine for many. This is why so many patients who have a sore throat immediately turn to tablets, hot water or even syrups to relieve the pain. Different causes of a sore throat will have different remedies.

Here are the some of the homeopathic remedies for different causes of a sore throat.

  1. Belladonna: This is the best medicine when there is any difficulty swallowing. It is also very readily available.
  2. HeparSulph: Heparsulph is generally used when there is a sensation in your throat, which feels like there is some sort of splinter.
  3. Phosporus: Phosphorus is a more widely used homeopathic remedy. It is used to treat what is called as 'clergyman's' sore throat. This is when there is a tickling sensation in the larynx.
  4. Lachesis: This is also a very uncommon and rarely required medicine. However, sometimes our throat feels sore only when we take liquids. In this case, lachesis is the ideal remedy.
  5. Bryonia: Bryonia is a much more common homeopathy. It is used when there is a cough accompanying the sore throat.
  6. Merc sol: Tonsilltis is generally considered to be a condition too serious to cure with homeopathy. However, Merc sol does do this effectively. Belladonna is also pretty good at it. They also help with a sore throat.
  7. Arsenicum album: This medication is most commonly used when a sore throat is accompanied by a cold.
  8. Aconite: Aconite is considered even better than arsenicum album in treating a sore throat which is also accompanied by a cold.
  9. Capsicum: This is a great homeopathic rememdy for a pain in the throat which goes all the way to the ears.
  10. Argentium Metallicum: Argentium Metallicum is used when the soreness of your throat worsens with the use of the voice. Professional singers and public speakers are especially in need of this medicine as they frequently use their voice.
  11. Chamomilla: This remedy is especially great for helping cure sore throat in children. 
  12. Baryta Carbonicum: This is a remedy used for a very similar reason to what chamomilla is used for.

Can't Kick Your Sinus Infection? This Can Help

MD , MBBS
General Physician, Aligarh

1. Relieve sinusitis: when the air is too dry, sinuses don't drain and function properly. According to many ent experts, adding humidity to the air is generally good for sinus health especially if you're regularly suffering from congestion and sinusitis.

2. Heal faster: whether it be a cold, asthma, or allergies, a humidifier keeps your nasal passages lubricated, which helps speed up the healing process when you're under the weather. For people with bad allergies, there are humidifiers that are specially designed to purify the air as well.

3. No more nosebleeds: another reason keeping your nasal passages moist and lubricated is essential is to prevent nosebleeds. If you're regularly experiencing nosebleeds due to your dry climate, it's worth a try. Many people have found that it makes a huge difference.

4. Alleviate snoring: the moisture from a humidifier keeps the throat from drying out and relieves the intensity of that annoying snoring sound. If you or your partner is a snorer, the added bonus is that (at least) one of you will be sleeping more soundly.

5. Support beautiful skin: soothe dry skin by sleeping with a humidifier on through the night. In the morning, you'll notice not only that your face looks more supple but also that your hands and lips don't feel dry and dehydrated.

Before you go out and purchase one, learn about the differences between warm and cool-mist humidifiers.

There is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. Topical capsaicin, derived from chili peppers, may help with arthritis, diabetic nerve pain, and other conditions. There's evidence that glucosamine can help relieve moderate to severe pain from osteoarthritis in the knee. Do reply back for private consultation. And detailed treatment plan.

My ear is paining. When I put buds in my ear, my ear is paining. Like air closed in ear. Can you help me?

MBBS
General Physician,
My ear is paining. When I put buds in my ear, my ear is paining. Like air closed in ear. Can you help me?
You should be very careful to use the ear bud it is verybdangerous if you use it quite often because thereby you may damage the tympanic membrane of the ear which is very very thin just. 007mm only and it is very sensitive too you may may cause the perforation of the tympanic membrane. Consult a e n t specialist. To assess the situation in the ear. You may putvsome antibiotic ear drop into the ear for three days.

I have sinusitis problem. I am preparing bank exam. My Doubt is that sinusitis is medical issue in medical fitness test. please replay me sir.

Diploma in Otorhinolaryngology (DLO), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Guwahati
Hello and welcome to lybrate, regarding your concern, sinusitis (initial stage) has no issues. I am actually more accustomed for fitness test for defence personal as I generally get patients for ent check up before defence job interviews. They are generally strict regarding dns (deviated nasal septum) with severe sinusitis, also hearing, smell and taste deficiencies. They are also strict in refraction and color blindness etc. Etc. But for bank purposes sinusitis may be an issue if you have gross dns with severe sinusitis as headache may reduce your work efficiency and ac exposure may not be good for you. Mild cases are spared. I think you should get a ct pns done and consult a local ent surgeon before your interview. Thanks and take care.
