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 endoscopically. Everything is explained in this, I hope this will benefit you.

This is due to lack of hydration in the mouth and this can only be corrected by iron rich diet as this will enhance the mucus production inthe mouth and this is really needed to restore the local immunity and less of infection as whenever the bacteria enters in the mouth this gets trapped in the mucus of the mouth.

Hi 3 months back, I had severe cold/cough and one night I was awakened suddenly to find that my throat, noses & both ears are blocked by cough. Next day morning I found that my nose, throat and left ear got cleared of blockages but the right ear still then blocked and some type of sound of air passing coming from inside the right ear. I consulted doctors - who gave me drep wax etc.- no result, then homeopath too but with no result. The air passing sound still comes out of the ear and I experience hearing deficiencies thro' right ear. Left ear is ok. Please advice & help. Thanks.

Do prevent a sore throat infection, a sore throat (pharyngitis) is normally a symptom of a bacterial or viral infection, such as the common cold. In around a third of cases, no cause for the sore throat can be found. If you have a sore throat, you may also have: swollen tonsils (tonsillitis) fever enlarged and tender glands in your neck discomfort when swallowing I am a general physician who will prescribe you an appropriate treatment plan for your case, do reply back for private consultation.

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.

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. 1. Mix three teaspoons of salt (preferably sea salt) in two cups of warm water. 2. Gargle with this solution. Do not swallow it. Spit the water out after gargling. 3. Do this several times daily for one to two days. Get back to me privately for its treatment and cure.

Dear, Persistence of sinusitis along with ringing in ear and loss of vision needs a disease group called vasculitis to be ruled out. It needs a biopsy from nose or sinuses along with chest xray and urine routine microscopy. Get yourself checked by chest physician or immunologist. Alternatively get a blood test called P AND C ANCA done to rule out this. .. Best wishes
