My husband got diagnosed with Tinnitus around 2 months back. He joined swimming few weeks before the constant buzz in his ears. The doctors indicated the water entering inside the ears thru swimming as one of the possible causes. He is on medication since then and has been feeling little better but he has been avoiding swimming ever since. He joined that for overall health and he preferred swimming over gym. But now he doesn't at all go to swim even by using earplugs. Can you please suggest if this was the reason behind his tinnitus and if he really should avoid swimming? I want him to continue swimming n want his tinnitus also to be cured. But please advise what's good for him.

There are different reasons and different types of tinnitus Usually tinnitus means ringing sound in ear . That happens due to nerve weakness. Other reasons are buzzing sound or insect fluttering sound are due to wax, or infection in ear or due to cold So if swimming caused the tinnitus it is likely due to infection. Hence once infection settles it is possible to swim provided ear drum is normal So consult your doctor and find out

Hello lybrate-user allergy does lead to sinusitis problems which inturn leads to throat irritation and cough it's a vicious circle. So simple measures like steam inhalation twice a day for a week does help and salt warm water gargling will take care of throat issues avoid curds sour foods for a while. Further for allergy got to take anti allergy medications.

I am 25 year old recently I was diagnosed with tinnitus in my left ear although I had no hearing loss this was due to fluid build up in my ear after a week or so I got tinnitus in my right ear as well so got my audiometry done again but still everything normal and now I started experiencing eye floaters I met an ophthalmologist but she said everything is normal but I notice a lot of eye floaters every time I step out in daylight. All this is making me too depressed and I keep worrying about my health.

MBBS
General Physician,
The tinnitus you had probably due to accumulation of pus or fluid in the middle ear due to perforation of tympanic membrane due to csom now it seems fluid has been drained out thats why you have no more tinnitus regarding the eye floaters with black spot may be due to retinal change but as you have already consulted the ophthalmologist and there is nothing wrong so you should not worry in necessarily. It will be alright.

I am suffering from alot of whiteheads on my nose. Can you suggest me, what should I do?
White heads are a form of Acne. It occurs when skin becomes clogged with oil/dirt/bacteria 1.Wash your face twice daily with soap and warm water to remove excess oil or wash face with Acnestar soap 2.Don’t scrub your face. 3. Apply acnestar gel (1%clindamycin+15 nicotinamide) twice daily for 4 week 4.If no relief, consult skin specialist Home made therapy a) Apply lemon juice twice a week b) mix honey with sugar, make a paste, apply it locally, leave it for 10 minutes, then wipe it off. Do it once a week. C) apply a paste of sandal wood powder in rose water, leave it for 10 minutes and then wipe it off . Do it twice weekly.

I hav problem during swallowing of saliva like something small object is stuck in the right side of the throat and when I cough a little particle like a half size of rice grain comes out which is yellow in colour and awful in smell. I need advice from experts. But last time when I counsel a doctor he says its beginning of a tonsils.

Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Bangalore
Hi, there are crypts or cracks on the surface of the tonsils where food particles often get stuck and cause the symptoms that you are describing. Gargle after every meal with dilute betaine to clear these crypts from food particles or have your tonsils removed.

My wife have bleeding problem in nose once or twice in every year from last 3 years. What is the problem and what is treatment.

MS , MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Bangalore
Hi. Bleeding from the nose, both in children and young adults is due to nose picking. Although in elderly its mainly because of hypertension. Sometimes even vigorous rubbing of nose could cause nasal bleed. As an emergency, you could pinch the nose for five minutes while you breath through the nose and that should stop nasal bleed.

I see you are already taking Azithromycin (AZIWOK) for your throat. Finish the course as prescribed to you. Add salt-water gargles (as often as possible). Plenty of warm fluids and rest will help you get better. If symptoms persist even after one week, see an ENT doctor in your area. Stay hydrated.

Hi sir, my mother is suffering from headache for past years. We thought its migraine, she also have sinusitis. Previously she used homeopathy medicines. Recently we had consulted an ENT. Specialist in Multi specialty hospital, there they said for CT scan after on report they suggested for a surgery. Is surgery is compulsory for this? Is there any solution by using only medicines? .

Hi, if the sinus infection is the only cause of her headache then disease clearance is the only choice. Generally a mother misses her food in time, take care of her breakfast. If all medical supportive management fails, then surgery is the treatment of choice for chronic obstructive sinusitis. Hope it helps you.

It seems that you are getting short acting medicines in homeopathy. You will need appropriate constitutional homeopathic remedy to treat this problem permanently. Thanks
