I am 21+ years old girl. And frequently suffer from throat infection and cold allergy and fir this I am suffering from side effects of PREDNISONE. I was on 10mg allergic medication and now my FACE, NECK, BELLY and BACK are swelled badly. I guess this is not swelling, I think its watery FAT deposits.

You need to stop your allergy medication y tapering. I would advise you to start homoepathic treatment for the allergy. It will take some time to get rid you of side effects of allopathy and also for allergy, but the wait is worth it.

I am 23 years old. I met ENT doctor for my ear which had puss draining from it for every 2 days and he said there is a hole in the ear drum and he said surgery is the only option to cure it. He gave me ear drops, using this made all the liquid drain out from my ear. My doubt is am able to hear properly and I also read that for eardrum rupture surgery is the last option. Should I go for surgery or any other remedy is available?

You need a surgery for hole in eardrum with recurrent infection. You can confirm your hearing level with help of a test called audiometry. You are young person you should not carry on such problem for prolonged period. In rare types of ear drum hole a nonsurgical procedure called chemical cautery can be tried but if it works for you that has to be decided by your ent surgeon. Success rate of such procedure is around 50% so the best option is surgery only.

Nasal polyp has to be surgically removed; no other option. After surgery anti-allergic treatment has to continue. Regular 6 monthly nasal endoscopic follow up in OPD has to be done to reduce chances of recurrence.

You have made the mistake of cleaning the ears even if they are clean. By doing this you have injured the skin in the ear which must have got infected. That is why you are having the pain. See an ent surgeon at the earliest. He will be in a position to cure this.

...
Your mother is suffering from benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (bppv). Symptoms are 1. Reeling sensation for few seconds to few minutes which is self limiting. 2. Nausea & occasionally committing. 3. Unsteadiness while walking. It is usually triggered by change of head & body position. Since it happens multiple times in a day, it is annoying & troublesome. An expert ent surgeon can help her by evaluating the side involved & doing the necessary manoeuvre to relieve the patient of his/her symptoms. Short course of medicines are required for complete relief. Vertigo exercises help in preventing relapses.

You need to get ear examination first than get opg for styloid process done as in most of the cases this is the radiating pain of the nerve from throat which leads to ear pain or dental problem.

I am a 26 year old male frombangalore. Am having sinus from past four years .Is there any treatment to cure ?

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Sinusitis is an inflammation, or swelling, of the tissue lining the sinuses. Normally, sinuses are filled with air. But when they become blocked and filled with fluid, germs (bacteria, viruses, and fungi) can grow and cause an infection. Conditions that can cause sinus blockage include the common cold, allergic rhinitis (swelling of the lining of the nose), nasal polyps (small growths in that lining), or a deviated septum (a shift in the nasal cavity). Homoeopathic constitutional treatment will give you permanent cure, your detailed case history will be required.

Vertigo can be a symptom of many problems. Yes a few diseases do reccur. You need to get treated as & when they occur. Vestibular rehabilitation exercises can help preventing certain problems upto some extent.

Do you know that your ear nerves are weak? at this age group. And usually giddiness is not associated with weak nerve. You might me having history of vertigo or a hole in your ear. If you gone through all check ups about your ear then let me know. Giddiness is generally associated with many diseases. Such as low bp, vertigo, anemia you should also check for that.

I read somewhere that wearing headphones for an hour can increase the bacteria in your by 700 times, I wear headphones daily for a minimum of 5-6 hours, I am also suffering from tinnitus which may have been caused by headphone use, please suggest how to handle hygiene issues caused by overuse of headphones.

MBBS, MS - ENT
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Ahmedabad
Ear canal is dark and narrow recess so air and light doesn't reach inside properly so over it if you cover it for prolonged period regularly than the issue worsens. Try to use headphones which doesn't go inside the ear but remains over it so some air escapes inside. Reduce duration of use and remove frequently while using. Tinnitus may be a bad sign caused by early damage to hearing nerve. Get a report called audiogram done and stop listening to loud sounds.

General Physician,

The therapeutic role of carbogen was evaluated in subjects with sensorineural hearing loss by administering carbogen, a gas mixture of 95 per cent O2 and 5 per cent CO2, for seven consecutive days (30 min/day) and monitoring puretone audiometry before and after the administration. Significant improvement was observed both in air and bone conduction threshold levels on seventh day, indicating that there was some recoverable portion in the hearing level of these subjects. The improvement in hearing may be due to action of CO2 as an otic vasodilator coupled with supplementation of the O2 requirement of degenerating hair cells. Carbogen thus appears to be useful in persons with impaired hearing, involving the inner ear.

I have snoring nose. I have consulted many doctor. But no use .what should I do doctor.

ENT Specialist, Mysore
Snoring is caused because of a vibration of the soft tissues of the upper airway. It is usually due to her uvula and Naso pharyngeal floppyness. You should see a doctor to rule out a disease called sleep apnea syndrome. There are a variety of treatments for this condition including surgery and 'cpap' usage. However it is decided after a sleep study. In the meanwhile you co uld follow some of the following suggestions. 1. Sleep on your side or tummy. 2. Do not take alcohol See your ent specialist for more. All the best.

I sometimes also feel dizziness, along with the swellings in my limbs. I consulted to my father, who himself is a doctor, suggested me to take haemoglobin medicine. That's all.

For dizziness and swelling of limbs low Haemoglobine may be one of the causes as felt by your doctor father. If no relief you may have to explore other possibilities like Kidney, Thyroid etc - a General Physician will suggest various tests and clinical examination to find out the cause
