Avoid exposure to cold. avoid cool drinks or frozen food. do not sit infront of aircooler/AC. these things will prevent collection of secretions in the sinuses. Have regular steam inhalation adding vicks in to that will help. learn from some yoga master the technique of jalaneti and sutraneti which will clean the nasal passage physically. always sit in a well ventilated room etc., will help reduce in the sinusitis

I m suffering from tonsil, since last 3 days and it goes increases day by day. What should I do.

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
The best and the most common home remedy for tonsillitis is to gargle with warm salt water. The warm water will have a soothing effect and the salt will help kill the virus or bacteria. Plus, salt helps reduce inflammation, giving you instant relief. Mix one teaspoon of table salt in a cup of warm water. Gargle with the solution. Do not swallow it. Spit the water out after gargling. Repeat this as often as possible for speedy recovery.

Hi, sore throat is usually accompanied by pain. Here are a few steps that you may follow in general to either cure or avoid getting sore throat. Try avoiding constipation at all costs. (a) healthy & balanced diet with focus on fresh fruits/ leafy greens. Avoid yellow banana. (b) consume flesh foods in moderation. (c) take plenty of water daily and stay hydrated. (d) regularize life style, reduce stress/ strain. (e) protect yourself from intense heat/ cold air. (f) do not take extremely hot/ cold/ spicy/ sour drinks as well as foods. (g) warm saline gargling 2 - 3 times daily. (h) gargle made of tulsi, cinnamon, turmeric or fenugreek seeds and honey are also beneficial. (i) avoid overcrowded places.

Gargling with warm salt water is an effective way to treat a sore throat. Salt can even help kill the bacteria or virus causing pharyngitis. 1. Mix three teaspoons of salt (preferably sea salt) in two cups of warm water. 2. Gargle with this solution. Do not swallow it. Spit the water out after gargling. 3. Do this several times daily for one to two days. Get back to me privately for its treatment and cure.

My daughter is 10 years old and suffers from nose bleeding specially in summer. Please advise.

MS - ENT, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Hyderabad
Usually I summers the nasal mucosa dries up inside the nose with crusts formation which will lead to irritation, there by children resort to nose picking due which the blood vessels in nasal mucosa shall be damaged leading to bleeding. You can use simple saline nasal drops 4 drops in each nostril 4 to 5 times in the nose, so that nose will not get dried up. Maintaining personal hygiene is also important.

Dear lybrate user, as you are a teacher by profession you might be delivering lectures everyday. This is not going to help your condition. Also, your jogging every morning is not good for you either as the breathing rate goes up and the cough cough get further aggravated. As you may not be able to stop delivering lectures, it is adviceable you temporarily stop your jogging till your throat has healed. Certain things that would help you are hereunder: - Drink lots of fluids (warm), avoid coffee - Take steam inhalation 3 times a day & do warm salt water gargles 3-4 times a day. - Keep some succulent lozenges (sugar free) in your bag, and use them as they would ease the irritation during lectures. If you dont feel better in the next 2 days or if there is fever, please consult a physician privately. Needless to mention, your blood sugar levels are on the higher side and a visit to your diabetologist is due. Take care!

When to go for a Tonsil Surgery?

MS - ENT, DNB (ENT)
ENT Specialist, Delhi
When to go for a Tonsil Surgery?

Tonsillitis is an affliction that plagues a fair share of people. Located at the back of your throat, tonsils are essentially two small glands, which contain white blood cells to defend your body against infection. However, on account of germ attacks, sometimes the tonsils get infected and this results in the swelling of the tonsil glands, which in turn causes sore throat and aligned maladies. 

Tonsillitis may be cured through surgical procedures. However, an isolated case of the inflammation of the tonsils need not warrant a surgery. Tonsillectomy or the surgical method of curing tonsillitis is only recommended for extreme cases of tonsillitis. Only the frequent sufferers of tonsillitis take recourse to tonsillectomy for a durable and effective solution. Surgeries are only done on those who have had at least seven bouts of strep throats within a span of a year. 

Tonsillectomies essentially involve surgical removal of the tonsils either using a scalpel or burning the tissues in the tonsils with the use of ultrasound vibrations. Usually performed under anesthesia, it is a fairly painless and a non-hazardous procedure. Tonsillectomies generally last for about an hour. However, the recovery period sometimes entail a few physical discomforts. Sore throat, difficulty in swallowing, pain in the jaws and ears are common symptoms of post tonsillectomy conditions. While there are palliative medicines available in the markets, adequate rest and proper diet speeds up the recovery. 

Tonsillectomy generally leaves no side effects and the success rate of this surgery is quite heartening. Tonsillectomy has also known to cure several other associated health problems in the likes of breathing troubles, sleep apnea, bleeding of the tonsil glands or cancerous developments in the tonsil glands. That aside, tonsillectomy is only performed on acute cases of tonsillitis and often regarded as the lender of last resort when medicines stop according any relief to the patient.

I have done two brain MRIs in the last 15 months and have been told by the doctors that due to combination of lacunar infarcts observed in the frontal lobe and mucosal thickening in left maxillary sinus, has resulted in low blood flow to the brain. This is caused vertigo and there is no cure.

Vertigo is caused due to disturbances in semicircular canals of vestibular apparatus of the internal ear, blood supply to the posterior part (back) of brain especially pons, medulla and cerebellum. Frontal cortex is not concerned with this type of function. Blood supply to brain is through carotid artery which does not pass through maxillary sinus and its mucosal thickening should not be a reason for decrease in blood supply or lacunar infarctions. While there may not be a reason to deny the facts of the MRI reports but the explanations offered to you sound to be least plausible. Frontal cortex is mostly controlling emotional functions and memory of the person.
