Laryngitis - Signs You Are Suffering From It!

Laryngitis - Signs You Are Suffering From It!

Laryngitis is referred to as the inflammation of the vocal cord or the larynx situated in the throat either due to it’s over usage or certain infections. This condition spreads rapidly and does significant damage to the larynx. Laryngitis can be acute or chronic. If not diagnosed timely, laryngitis can cause significant problems in the respiratory system such as experiencing trouble while breathing. Laryngitis can be treated with antibiotics and with other home remedies such as gargling with warm salt water, giving your voice some rest and drinking sufficient water (around 2-2.5 liters) in a day to keep dehydration at bay. Make sure you avoid any caffeinated beverage and alcohol if such a condition develops. In urgent cases of laryngitis, a prescribed dosage of corticosteroids and antibiotics can provide relief.

Causes
The causes of laryngitis depend considerably on the form of laryngitis. If the laryngitis is of acute nature, then it might have been caused due to an infection and it tends to go away after suitable treatment. In the case of chronic laryngitis, the inflammation is caused due to a frequent exposure to irritants. This condition has long sustained effect and tends to be painful. The causes of laryngitis are as follows:

  1. Apart from viral and bacterial infections, an acute form of laryngitis can be caused due to the impairment of the vocal cord as a result of constantly talking or screaming at a high-pitched voice.
  2. Acid reflux (acidity) and frequent instances of sinus infections can cause chronic laryngitis.
  3. Excessive consumption of tobacco and alcohol might cause chronic laryngitis.
  4. Constant exposure to toxic chemicals might cause chronic laryngitis.
  5. In some cases, prolonged huskiness of the throat might be a symptom of a serious underlying medical condition such as cancer or vocal cord paralysis. In such a case, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible.

The symptoms of laryngitis are as follows:

  1. A constant sensation of dry throat which might lead to permanent impairment of voice
  2. Persistent sensation of titillation in the throat coupled with a persistent dry cough
  3. Significant pain while swallowing food
  4. Feeling of fullness in the throat
  5. Severe pain in the throat

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ent Specialist.

2 days onwards I have full cold and headache while am getting cold I got teeth and ear pain also why.

2 days onwards I have full cold and headache while am getting cold I got teeth and ear pain also why.
Allergy is the main cause of your cold which leads to a headache when the sinus openings get blocked. The cold can get the ear involved too. Take an anti allergic tablet for about 10 days. The symptoms should go away. The teeth pain is because of the maxillary sinus (the sinus in the cheek area) getting affected.

Unani Treatment Of Sinusitis!

Bachelor of Unani Medicine & Surgery (B.U.M.S)

Unani Treatment Of Sinusitis!

Most people go through the experience of getting up in the morning feeling lousy along with a heavy headedness which lingers on all through the day. You may believe that you are getting cold, but you realize that the medications of the common cold are not able to mitigate your symptoms. That’s because you are being affected with sinusitis which needs comprehensive treatment.

What is sinusitis?
Sinuses are hollow spaces in the body which have their opening in the nose for the exchange of air and mucus, and each sinus is joined with the nasal passage with the help of continuous mucous membrane. This means that anything which leads to a swelling in the nose including an infection or allergic reaction or immune reaction can affect these sinuses. It results in an intense pain of sinus attack as air is prevented from entering into the nasal sinus because of the swollen membrane. It can also lead to other symptoms such as a runny nose along with nasal congestion, tiredness, fever and severe cough.

How to get rid of sinusitis?
Even though there are endless numbers of medications which can help you control the symptoms of sinusitis, you will be surprised to know that it can also be effectively treated through the Unani medicines without any side effects. If you are suffering from acute sinus pain, you can inhale steam with holy basil five to six times a day. You may require this treatment for several weeks to years together as per the level of suffering. Practicing breathing techniques can also aid in draining out pollutants from the sinus cavities.

Besides practicing these effective procedures, it is recommended to see a Unani medicine expert who can evaluate your unique physical condition and set a treatment plan to relieve your condition. This particular system has got its name from a region in Greece called Unan. The system of Unani medicine is based on several kinds of research, and it incorporates a huge number of drugs from notable medical systems like Siddha and Ayurveda.

How does the Unani system of medicine work to treat sinusitis?
According to the Unani system of medicine, it is important to find out the reason behind the ailment to treating the ailment from its roots. A person gets affected by different diseases including sinusitis due to the surrounding conditions. Therefore, it is important to strike a balance between human body and environment. Pollution also makes the body weaker, and medicines bring about a host of unwanted side effects. On the other hand, the medicine aids in collecting the factors which have contributed to causing the disease. The natural forces in the body together with the Unani medicines help in removing the ailments which, in turn, manage the symptoms of sinusitis.

So, if you are suffering from intense sinusitis and no treatment has helped your condition, then you should consider Unani medications without further delay. It would take some time to uproot the condition, but it is possible to get rid of the condition by following the instructions of your expert diligently.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am 23 years male and my ears are producing too much wax. I don't know how to clean it properly. My questions are 1....
Hello lybrate-user wax production in ear is a normal phenomenon and ear has physiological mechanisms by which the wax comes out automatically. However in some ears whose canal are narrow or the wax produced is excessive, it accumulates and causes impaction and hearing loss, pain and other symptoms. In such cases one must consult an otolaryngologist (ent specialist) who can remove the wax using a probe or endoscope as an office procedure. Self instrumentation with any ear bud is not recommended for the following reasons. 1. When you use an ear bud you are pushing the wax further inside. When an ent specialist removes wax using a probe he puts the probe behind the wax and pulls it outside. 2. You cannot see how deep you are poking with the ear bud, one of the commonest complications of self instrumentation is ear drum rupture or perforation. Perforated ear drums have a separate line of management. However you may use a wax desolving ear drops every few weeks after discussing with your doctor to make the formed wax more soluble and it can come off easier. Hope to find you in good health soon.
