Can I use otrivin to get relief from blocked nose without any doctor consultation?

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
Otrivin (or other topical nasal decongestant) is not a very good medicine. I know it gives immediate relief but on long term use it has side effect (rhinitis medicamentosa) leading to persistent nasal obstruction for which it is used.

Im feeling dizziness when lie down on bed and stand up from bed. Other times, especially at night also very slightly feeling dizziness. Why this happens? After diagnosis with a nearest doctor he checked my bp and pulse. He told both are normal, and some balancing problem. When will this get cured? Help me.

lybrate-user, you are most probably suffering from BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo) This is due to a disorder in your inner ear where certain particles have migrated from their rightful position in the saccules and need to be repositioned back into the saccule. This is done by doing Particle Repositioning Exercises. Look up Epley's Maneuver on YouTube and try to do the same or meet an ENT Surgeon locally to teach you the same!

While sleeping I snores and in-between my breathing stopped for like 12 to 20 seconds. I guess it's sleep apnea. Can you tell me of any cure. Besides operative cure.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Lose weight. People who are overweight have extra tissue in the back of their throat, which can fall down over the airway and block the flow of air into the lungs while they sleep. Even a small amount of weight loss can open up your throat and improve sleep apnea symptoms. Quit smoking. Smoking is believed to contribute to sleep apnea by increasing inflammation and fluid retention in your throat and upper airway. Avoid alcohol, sleeping pills, and sedatives, especially before bedtime, because they relax the muscles in the throat and interfere with breathing. Exercise regularly. As well as helping you to lose weight, starting and sticking to an exercise program can have a major effect on the duration and quality of your sleep. Aerobic and resistance training can help reduce sleep apnea symptoms, while yoga is also good for strengthening the muscles in your airways and improving breathing. Avoid caffeine and heavy meals within two hours of going to bed. Maintain regular sleep hours. Sticking to a steady sleep schedule will help you relax and sleep better. Apnea episodes decrease when you get plenty of sleep.

The very fact that you started having infections after rta. Probably the implant is infected and in that case the implant has to be removed. Control the infection and re do the surgery.

Inhale steam at least for 5 minutes morning and evening, do not swallow the phlegm, spit it out, do salt water gargles, drink a warm water glass of water + lemon juice + a spoon of honey everyday in morning, this increases immunity to fight illness. You can take anti allergic tablet like phenargan at bed time. Get back after a week, if no improvement, some investigations will be suggested to rule out infection.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is in control, then tsh should be 3 to 4 mu/l, at that level all the symptoms are well in check. So please look at tsh if not as desired then dose of thyroxine may have to be increased. Further, after 6 weeks check tsh again to see if it has returned to as mentioned above. Uncontrolled hypothyroidism can affect memory. As regards itching in ear you may have to consult an ent specialist and for cough, meet your local gp. Thanks.

My 9 months old Grandson, who is in UK. Got cold, fever and ear infection 2 months ago and was given Amoxicillin oral syrup and recovered. Again he had recurrent ear infection alone, but without any discharge. He was rubbing his ears and there was foul smell in his ear, for which he was given by the Doctor, Clarithromycin oral syrup for five days and got little relief. Still he rubs his ear. Could you suggest any other medicine or any ear drops, so that he could get relieved from the infection. He is being given head bath twice a week.

Hi, Recently my mother has got swollen tonsils and there is some kind of infection on it. Local doctor has suggested to get it removed. I read that tonsils protects us from any kind of throttle infections. So please suggest me, is it ok to get it removed? Will it cause any side effects?

Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Bangalore
In adult life tonsils have nothing much to function and can be safely removed if your mother suffers from frequent throat infection associated with pain and fever then she may need surgery. If she does not get infection frequently and very rarely it troubles her then surgery can be avoided.

My friend often snores a lot at night. How can this snoring problem be controlled? Pls help.

BAMS
Ayurveda, Bangalore
Hi, 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.
