Took Otrivin for more than 3 months daily! And now, I guess my nose remains stuffed for no reason, even when I'm fit and healthy. How do I get rid of my nose's addiction? Its quite humid here in Kolkata, so humidifiers don't work. Saline sprays don't work either.

This is mostly due to drying and subsequent cleaning inside the nose which is very delicate and so traumatized easily and bleeds easily. So stop cleaning inside, apply moisturizer without fragrance but it is always best to see an ent surgeon and get your self checked.

As ac causes dryness in the nose and mouth, this is basically the protective layer of mouth if this goes off than patient start getting frequent infection and bleeding, so keep yourself hydrated with fruits and salads, and lots of milk products.

Hello doctor
I got little ear pain and my chik got swelling one side. Can you suggest me medicine.
Hello Ms. Lybrate-user. What you are describing may be an ear infection or may be parotitis or even mumps- an infection that raises the earlobe due to swelling of the cheek. You can look up mumps on the internet and consult an ent doctor for ear infection and a general physician for mumps. Hope this helps. Warm regards,

Hi, it seems you are somehow allergic to certain foods and drinks including tea, which when taken is leading to excess mucous secretion and hence the stickiness and the need to clear throat often. I would first and foremost advise you to restrict intake of such foods/ drinks so that you can prevent most of these. At the same time, you most probably require a long term prophylactic treatment for your allergy issues. To clear off the sticky mucous, you can take a mucolytic as advised by your doc. In the absence of a mucolytic syrup, even drinking half a glass of luke warm water in which a teaspoonful of honey and about 2 pieces of black pepper are mixed properly, would help. At the same time, do streamline your dietary habits and also your lifestyle keeping ample room for daily exercise/relaxation/ de-stressing. You may connect with me in private to discuss and come up with a naturopathic treatment plan that suits you in particular and one that gives you a long lasting relief from your chronic symptoms. Hope this helps. All the very best.

Vertigo is very common these days in any age group due to excess of noise exposure and damage to inner ear, humming sound, whistling and giddiness are the problems which are getting in people are very common these days, these get complicated when they are not taken care of at proper time whistling or buzzing in the ear is getting commoner these days in people of all ages. Most common causes is wax or any object in the ear, after getting your ears clean these gets over. But if ears are already clean than this is worrisome. Common causes which are responsible are high cholesterol diet, alcohol, smoking, loud noises, cervical spondylosis, trauma (self or inflicted) over the ears. If this is the situation than report to your ent doctor immediately tinnitus is basically due to hampered blood supply to ears due to which ears start dying. As this process starts a person starts hearing noises. When a person starts hearing noises then it is already late diagnosis as these noises gets heard by someone when they are of 40 db intensity, below that threshold these noises are not heard. So it is already to late and the damage has become permanent. Problem with these noises are that we can control at what level person goes to his specialist otherwise these noises keep on increasing and can give you headache frustration and depression. Now a days tinnitus maskers are available which help you to lead your life peacefully.

Please consult your dentist first, if dentist find your gums healthy you should visit ent specialist. Bleeding while brushing occurs due to gingivitis (inflammation of gum) throat infection may cause bleeding but it occurs on cough mostly.

Hi lybrate-user, I can understand your concern. I would advise you to go for a second opinion here, with all your reports. You at least need anti-anginal medicine, including anti-platelet/ anti-coagulant therapies, if you are hesitating to go for angioplasty. Simultaneously, keep your diet and lifestyle streamlined, focus on a mediterranean diet pattern. You must cease smoking, if any, completely. Your lipid profile needs to be managed too. Do focus on anxiety/ stress reduction as well, through regular yoga, meditation, breathing exercises, anxiolytics etc all. Hope this helps. Take care and all the very best. Sincerely, Dr. Pritam (nd) bbsr.

Children do get blood in the nose more often than adults. There is nothing to worry about. Get blood tested for bleeding time & clotting time. When he has blood in the nose just pinch the nose for about 5 minutes. The bleeding should stop.
