Blocked Nose: 5 Remedies For It!

Blocked Nose: 5 Remedies For It!

A blocked nose is not only annoying, but is extremely discomforting. Several reasons can be held responsible for it and common cold is certainly not the only one. Some other reasons include:
1. Flu
2. Allergy
3. Sinus

Therefore, the remedial measures for blocked nose vary, depending on the cause that led to it. Some of the ways by which you can redress this problem are:

  1. Use a humidifier: Sinusitis is often held responsible for a clogged nose, a condition that is almost always accompanied by severe pain. In such a situation, placing a humidifier in a room proves to be extremely beneficial. This machine treats blocked nose by converting the water to moisture. This fills up the room and significantly increases the humidity of the room. Therefore when you breathe, the humid air soothes the inflamed blood vessels in the nose and helps you to breathe properly.
  2. Take a hot shower: When you find it difficult to breathe, a quick hot shower can go a long way in curing the discomfort. The logic that operates is the steam generated from the hot shower thins the mucus and also considerably reduces the inflammation in the nose, allowing you to breathe normally.
  3. Drink lots of water: Though the suggestion may seem incredible, drinking water actually helps in un-blocking that blocked nose. When you drink a lot of water, the mucus in the nostrils is thinned, at the same time it pushes back the accumulated fluids, thereby curbing the condition of blocked nose.
  4. Using a saline spray: This is one of the most ancient and trusted ways of treating blocked nose. By administering a saline or a nasal spray, the moisture in your nostrils increases and radically diminishes the inflammation.
  5. Use warm compresses: Using a warm compress has been the most reliable form of medication in times of high temperature and also at times of blocked nose. The compress that was dipped in hot water, when placed on the nose and forehead helps to unblock the nasal passages. The soothing effect of the warm compresses reduces the inflammation and facilitates the process of breathing.

For your throat pain, it it is with fever, you may need to take antibiotics, for which you need to consult with a private consultation. If not, try with salt water gargles, 3-4 times a day and take pain killer if required. If not ok in 2 days, consult back. Try sending picture of your throat.

I am 41 years male have a problem of snoring creates disturbance in sleep. What I need to do?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Most of the time people snoring enjoying the sleep but others nearby can't sleep and might be repenting your company. Don't worry. Enjoy! (lol) if you are really interested I ll suggest you something which is pungent to instill but may smoothen the respiration to some extent. May not be fully. Ent surgeon must have checked and dns may be one thing for which surgery is advised. But even that's not exhausting remedy. There r other reasons too but effective remedy is not visible. If like to experience the herbal route, please revert.

Tinnitus can be because of many causes like small perforation in the ear, sensorineural hearing loss, eustachian tube blockage etc. Since you donot have any other symptoms like decreased hearing you can use TABLET BILOVAS 40 mg one tablet in the morning for 20 days. Avoid loud sounds and donot let water enter your ears. Use vaselin coated cotton as plugs to protect your ears from water entry while taking bath. Avoid headphones, bluetooth, loud TV or music players. If symptoms persist after 20 days too, consult a nearby Ent consultant for thorough ear examination. You might require audiometry if symptoms persist.

Just get your ear cleaned and examined once under microscope and apply proper cream by qualified experienced ent surgeon. Then only even tablets will work.

Your bp is low & when you get up it further gets lower, the condition is called postural hypotension. So take plenty of liquids & increase salt in your diet. Even then if you don't get relief then show to a doctor.
