You maybe suffering from allergic rhinitis and pharyngitis. You need to avoid the cause of your allergies and also take anti allergy medications. Please consult for prescription. If you have an infection and have fever you will need to do a course of antibiotics. For now do warm saline gargle and steam inhalation 3 times a day.

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.

Suffering from tinnitus from the past 7 years Wats d solution for tht Kindly reply.

M S, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Gurgaon
Tinnitus at times could be real difficult to treat. Kindly get yourself examined for hearing loss by getting pure tone audiometry. You may use sound generators to mask and suppress tinnitus. If there is associated anxiety, reducing the anxiety also helps.

Hello. For sore throat, need to follow the points: - Avoid cold things, fried/ oily food. -Avoid excessive use of voice/ roughly using voice or else shouting. - Gargle with salt and warm water solution thrice daily. - Take Ginger tea. - Avoid excessive cold air or sudden change of temperature (like coming from heat/ sunlight to an A/C room). - Can cover your throat with a stole. Take homoeopathic medications - Schwabe's Kali Mur. 6x and Alpha- CF/ 1 tab. - both thrice a day daily- for 3 days. Revert me back.

Its tinnitus, first of all get your ear checked for wax then go for pta/tympanometry. Anyhow, its generally not a serious problem.

I just recently got hit very hard with a sudden cold, and every time I blow my nose there's always blood on my tissue? Is my nose bleeding whilst having a cold normal? And I don't mean profusely. But pretty much every time I blow my nose it's bleeding. Do's & Do not's.

MS - ENT,MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Kolkata
Hi lybrate-user nasal bleeding due to forceful nose blowing is common. *avoid nose blowing. Use a nasal drop with decongestant. Use an antibiotic ointment inside your nose. Start a antibiotic. Stop touching your nose. Take rest have plenty of water. If a large amount of blood comes urgent consultation may be required. Hope this helps

Hi I have a problem. My head throbes when I get fever or cold. And it starts bulging out. I am undergoing homeopathy treatment. It stops wen I take medicine but re appear again wen I take tension or cry. Whats the reason is it sinus.

MS - ENT, DNB (ENT)
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
This could be because of a sinus infection. I would recommend that you see an ent specialist for the same, who may like to ask for a ct scan of the sinuses and head. It could be because of a neurological problem also, but consult an ent doctor first. Regards.

DNB (ENT), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist,
Use saline nasal spray (2 puffs in both nasal cavities) in the night and morning for 3 weeks. Jal neeti with salt water (boiled at home then cooled to room temperature) instead of nasal spray will also work.
