I'm suffering from nasal polyps. Is it mandatory to do operation or can be curable by medicine?

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
It depends on extension of disease that can be assessed by ct scan. If disease is limited it can be treated by medication and nasal spray otherwise surgery (fess i. E functional endoscopic sinus surgery) is preferred choice for nasal polyps with less chance of recurrence if done properly and using latest instruments like microdebrider.

Put soliwax ear drops, 3 drops 3 times in a day for 5 days. Mostly it will liquify ear wax and you will get relief. If it will not come after 5 days, better to visit any ent specialist who will clean your ear without damaging it.

Is snoring is a disease? How we can prevent snoring while sleeping? Any medication? Natural therapy?

BAMS
Ayurveda, Bangalore
Hi, snoring is not a disease. Snoring occurs when a person is not able to move the air through the nose and throat while sleeping. As a result, the air vibrates the surrounding tissues and causes snoring sound. Please follow these tips to stop snoring: - reduce your weight if you are obese. - perform pranayama (breathing exercises) everyday. - quit smoking which irritates the mucosal layer of the nose and throat and causes blockage and results in snoring. - quit alcohol and sedatives which relax the throat muscles and results in snoring. - sleep on sides instead on back. - elevate the head by using a thick pillow which eases the breathing. - clear the nose before going to bed. - establish regular sleep pattern. - keep the bedroom air moist by using humidifier; as dry air irritates the mucosal membrane in the nose and throat. - perform throat exercises like repeating the vowels a, e, i, o, you loudly for 2-3 mins few times a day or keeping the tongue behind the teeth and moving it backwards - 3-4 times a day. - anti snoring appliances can also be used.

Since last 3 days I have pain in my ears and I am not able to hear also my both ears are totally blocked.
Decreased hearing on one side or both sides: Proper microscopic examination of ear is required. Also edscopic exam of ear may add some findings. Tunning fork test, Pure tone Audiometry, Impedence audiometry etc will help to come to diagnosis. Deafness can be due to edema, wax or fixation of ear bones of hearing or subluxation of it, may be due to hole in drum or may be due to nerve deafness. You may require surgery.
