This is due to allergic rhinitis. Start tab. Allegra-m daily at night and duonase nasal spray twice a day, steam inhalation also for 2 weeks. If even after that your symptoms are not resolved get a ct scan done to rule out any underlying pathology like polyps in nose.

I have a problem of big snoring through out the night, so I would like to ask you what may be its treatment to stop it. Thank you for your time.

Snoring can be because of improper neck position during sleeping, cold, deviation or spur in nose or obesity. So decrease your weight. Sleep straight. Say no to pillows. If still persist consult an ent specialist.

Blood comes from my nose while sneezing! Is this due to excessive smoking! What to do?

DEAR Lybrate USER. This problem is due to increased amount of abnormal pitta dosha in a rakta dhatu. So that suddha rakta converted into dushit rakta. And because of this strength of capillaries in the nose decreases and they rupture consequently bleeding occurs.. You have to follow some basic things, so that you get better results in a short period of time . 1) take solid diet two times in a day and liquid diet two times in a day . 2) drink only 100-150 ml of lukewarm water during meals . 3) don’t drink water before meal for one hour and one hour after meal 5) avoid oily, spicy, junk, fermented and stale foods 6) avoid late night sleeping habits. 7) avoid day time sleeping. A) take 50 ml of triphala juice and 15 ml of honey along with 50 ml of lukewarm water early in the morning and at night before sleep. Along with this take 2-2 tablets of RAKTASTAMBHAK VATI (dhootpapeshwar company. B) take 2-2 tablets of AAROGYAWARDHINI VATI and CHANDRAPRABHA VATI after meals. C) instill 4-4 drops of ALMOND tail in each nostrils two times in a day. Do all these things for 7 days. This formulation is effective.

When I lean down my nose starts bleeding. Frequently. But not always. Consulted an e. N. T, suggested plain ct scan of paranasal sinuses. Findings are 1) nasal septum deviated to right 2) hypertrophied bilateral inferior turbinates wih edematous nasal mucosa s/o sinonasal inflammatory disease all other things are noted normal in d report. Can anyone one tell me what does this mean? do I have sinus. But I do not have cold or something. But sometimes blockage of one hole sometimes other. But no breathing trouble.

The ct scan indicates a deviated nasal septum. That could account for the nasal blockage. If the bleeding is from the right side, it could account for the bleeding as well. Because you get frequent nose bleeds, your next step should be to undergo a nasal endoscopy followed by cauterization of the bleeder if possible. Regards.

Hi. Yes, exactly! The acid in our stomach comes back from stomach in to the oesophagus. So, ask your mother to take her meals 2 hrs. before lying down or sleeping as immediately lying down after the meals can make the condition worse. Also, let her avoid fried, spicy, chilly, oily food. Take less spicy food, more of seasonal fruits to be consumed, more salads, more water, (but avoid water immediately after the meals as well the beverages), if she has any stress ask her to do breathing exercises sp. Pranayam & Anulom-Vilum. Medication: Homoeopathic medicines - Natrum Phos. 6x/ thrice daily 1/2 an hr. after the meals and Carbo Ve. 30/ twice daily - both for 20 days. Revert me back.

It seems you have perforated ear drum. It should be treated by tympanoplasty operation. Ear drops are only temporary treatment to be used for a brief period only when there is ear discharge.

Super Fact of the Day: An hour of wearing headphones can see the bacteria count increase in your ear by 700 times!

When you wear a pair of headphones, you end up blocking the entry of natural air into your ear, which causes bacteria to increase by 700 times inside within an hour! As a result, your eardrums respond with pain or hearing loss, as they are unable to bear the invasion of bacteria in such huge numbers.

Pain at backside of head is generally due to problem in cervical spine (spine of neck). 1. Intervertebral disc prolapse in cervical spine. 2. Neck muscle strain. 3. Occipital neuralgia: entrapment of nerves at back of head. Diagnosis can be made by detailed symptoms of patient and examination findings. Mri cervical spine may be needed to confirm the diagnosis. Follow these tips to get relief; 1. Take simple analgesics like paracetamol or ibuprofen round the clock for 4 to 5 days. 2. Apply warm water bag on neck if you find it soothing. 3. Do neck stretching exercises after pain is relieved. 4. Maintain good posture during work or reading to relieve neck strain. Avoid reading or computer work with neck bent. Keep text books at eye level. 5. Consult a pain specialist to get relief from severe pain with injection known as occipital nerve block at back of head. If problem is persistent you need to consult again.

It is better if you can consult a nearby ent specialist for otoscopy as ear ache can be a symptom of a spectrum of ear conditions like earwax, otitis externa, otomycosis, aom etc with completely different treatments.
