For throat infection, do gargle with hot salty water. If it doesn't reduce in one or two days, consult doctor personally for checkup and antibiotics.

Nose Bleeding - How To check acute episode and Prevent It?

Nose Bleeding - How To check acute episode and Prevent It?

Nose bleeding happens because of the presence of large amount of blood vessels in the nose.

Most common reasons for nose bleeding are nose picking, trauma, low levels of Vitamin K, Vitamin C, colds and allergies and nose lining getting dry along with so many other reasons.

Above 40 years of age bleeding nose is to be taken with suspicion. 

But there are ways with the help of which it can be prevented and stopped. 

Let’s first learn how it can be instantly stopped. 

  1. Sit comfortably: When your nose starts bleeding, you should sit in a comfortable position. Do not stand or lie down because in these positions, blood may pass on to your throat which could be harmful. Tilt your face forward and let a piece of cloth soak in all the blood.
  2. Hold the nose: During nose bleeding, one should hold and pinch the nose for at least 10 minutes continuously. If it still doesn’t stop then hold it for 5-7 minutes more. Holding or pinching the nose stops bleeding by direct pressure on the nose.
  3. Apply ice: This can be a great way of instantly stopping nose bleeding. Ice usually shrinks and tightens the blood vessels because of which bleeding stops. Ice should preferably be applied on cheeks and root of nose. 
  4. No anxiety: Bleeding is a safety valve, specially, in hypertensive patients. If nose doesn't bleed than brain would bleed. It's better nose to bleed than brain.

Nose bleeding can be prevented by taking the following measures: 

  1. Elevate the head end while resting. 
  2. Do not blow or scratch nose forcefully. 
  3. Keep blood pressure in control. 
  4. Avoid smoking because it delays the healing process. 
  5. Make sure the room you sleep in isn’t dry. Keep a check on the humidity of the room, especially, in winter electric heaters dry up air. Keep a mug of water in room. 
  6. Need to take special care in winters because the nose lining gets dry mostly. Apply Vaseline or oil or Ghee. 
  7. Drink plenty of water and citrus food like oranges, lemon, sweet lime, Indian gooseberry to keep your nose moist and strengthen blood vessels. 
  8. Do not overuse cold and allergy medicines.

This seems to be allergic rhinitis because of which your nose is running a lot, there are very good medicines to treat thsi condition in homeopathy and if you want to use traditional medicine you can use anti-histamines like ceterezine which will give you only temporary relief and homeopathy will have permanent cure, if you want any good, suitable homeo medicine please write back to me.

Take strict bed rest, plenty of oral liquid like glucose water, ORS and Lemon juice. Check whether you get fever. If no improvement you should see a Consulting Physician for clinical examination, further investigations, Repeat Platelet count, etc. Diagnosis and furthe management. Hospital admission may be very helpful to give adequate IV Saline and observation etc.

Your heart function has reduced from 45 to 36%, and also you have ventricular ectopics, it can either be that you had another heart attack or the stent got block, which has caused heart function to decrease. Also these ectopics indicate that probably you may be intermittently having unstable heart rhythm which explains your giddiness. This is pretty serious, a check angiogram should be done, with a 24 HR holter. Further treatment will be based on the reports of these tests.
