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.

Hello lybrate-user, do not clear your ear, the pain in ear is due to cleaning, so leave it as it is cos the shape of ear is such type by nature that it cleans up automatically and need not required any cleaning, if needed than consult your ent surgeon only. Good luck and take care.

I am 28 and have been suffering from allergic rhinitis for as long as I can remember. I usually take Levocet to curb the symptoms whenever I come in contact with an allergen. For the past one month or so, I am down with cold every single day with symptoms appearing mostly in the morning as soon as I wake up. Besides, I also sense some blockage in nostrils even when there is no runny nose and I can breathe only through one constricted nostril at a time. I do not go out or come in contact with dust/allergens. Can you help?

Household dust is a mixture of many materials. Dust may contain tiny fibers shed from different fabrics as well as tiny particles of food, plant and insect parts, mold and fungus spores, dander from pet dogs or cats, or feathers from birds. Dust also contains many microscopic mites and their waste products. The waste products of dust mites — not the mites themselves — are what cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Throughout its short life span, a single dust mite may produce as much as 200 times its body weight in waste products. Dust mite waste contains a protein that is an allergen. An allergen is a substance that provokes an allergic reaction. Homoeopathy can cure such allergy.

7 Ayurveda Tips for EarAches and Ear Health

Treat Earaches the Natural Way

Earaches can cause great discomfort. Most of them occur due to infection in the ear. As a result fluid may collect in the middle ear that causes pain. Some other reasons may be physical damage to the inner structure of the ear, buildup of wax in the ear, blockage of nasal passage or may be common cold. Sometimes these may call for medical intervention.

However, simple earaches can be treated with the help of these easy natural home remedies:

1. Garlic

Garlic has antibiotic and analgesic properties that help to relieve earaches.

- Crush a small piece of garlic and heat with 2 teaspoon of sesame oil. Filter and cool it.

- Put 2-3 drops in the infected ear.

2. Ginger

Ginger too like garlic has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties.

- Take 1 teaspoon of ginger juice and mix it with 2 tablespoons of olive oil

- Put 2-3 drops in the hurting ear to get relief

3. Apple Cider Vinegar

A potent substance, apple cider vinegar works well for all types of health problems including earaches

- Put 2-3 drops in the infected ear

- Repeat again after 12 hours to get relief

4. Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree oil with its anti-bacterial features is also effective remedy for earaches.

- Add a few drops to a tablespoon of olive oil and warm them

- Take 2-3 drops of this oil and put it into the infected ear for relief

5. Juice from Mango Leaves

  Mango leaves too have an antibiotic action and can relieve earache.

- Extract juice by crushing 3-4 fresh mango leaves

- Slightly warm up this extract

- Put 2-3 drops in the ear that hurts

6. Drink Herbal Tea  

Herbal Tea made from Chamomile or Holy Basil provides warmth and can help to get rid of infections. With relaxing and healing properties, these herbal teas can be used to get relief from earaches.

7. Rubs for Earache

- Mix 10 drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil along with 10 drops of Lavender Essential oil in ¼ cup of Olive oil.

- Rub few drops from this oil around the ears to get relief from inflammation and infection of the ears.

- You can also rub Lemon Balm instead of essential oils to ease pain in the ears.

Ear Pain - Can it Be a Sign of Infection?

Ear Pain - Can it Be a Sign of Infection?

Ear infection is a disorder which can either be viral or bacterial, affecting one’s middle ear the most. This disorder is painful as fluid accumulates in the ear leading to inflammation. Infections of the ear can either be chronic or acute in nature, the damage is more prominent in case of chronic infections. Acute ear infections can be painful but they usually fade away in a few days’ time.

Symptoms
In case of an ear infection, you will experience pain in the ear. A pressure may develop in the ear accompanied by drainage of pus from the ears. Some severe cases might also lead to loss of hearing, be it temporary or permanent. The symptoms of ear infection may develop and affect both the ears. Fever during ear infections is another common auxiliary condition.

Causes
Ear infections tend to occur when the Eustachian tubes in the ear get blocked as a result of fluid accumulation in the ear. The Eustachian tubes can get blocked due to the following reasons –

  1. Being affected by allergies
  2. Conditions such as cold can lead to ear infection
  3. Problems in the sinuses
  4. Excessive smoking
  5. Infected adenoid glands

In addition to the causes, there are certain risk factors which can make one prone to ear infections, some of them being:

  1. Narrow Eustachian tubes in children increase the risks of ear infections
  2. Changes in climate and altitude
  3. Second hand exposure to cigarette smoke

Treatment
For mild symptoms, simple home remedies will suffice. A warm compress on the affected area can reduce the pain. Taking pain relieving medications such as ibuprofen can also help in reducing pain. For moderate symptoms, antibiotics may be required to treat the bacterial infection.
If other treatments do not work, then surgery may be required. Usually tubes are inserted in the ear to drain the accumulated fluid. If it involves the adenoid glands, then surgical removal of the adenoid glands may be required. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ent-specialist.

I have a bent nose, and my nose is blocked most of the time. What should I do? Should I see a doc?

General Physician,
If your nose block cannot be relieved by sprays and the bend is there you can get it corrected by surgery like fess.
