It could be that you are a mouth breather in sleep. Please also check your blood sugar levels. Drink plenty of water before going to sleep. Keep a bottle of water at your bedside before sleeping.

You need detailed examination of nose and throat. Throat irritation can be because of post nasal drip. For nasal bolck you can use OXYSPRAY one puff in both nostrils at 5 PM followed by steam inhalation for 15 minutes for a week. Strictly stop spray usage after a week. Take Tablet ZYRCOLD half tablet in the evening at 5 PM after food for 7 days. Avoid cold foods and cold drinks. Do warm salt water gargling. Consult a nearby ENT consultant if symptoms persist.

Do long breathing exercise pranayam daily. • Clear nasal passage (nose) before sleeping. You can take steam for 2 - 3 minutes to clear the passage. • Change your sleeping position, elevate your pillow slightly while sleeping. • Sleep on a side not on back. • Avoid smoking and excess drinking alcohol. Do not take sedative medicines. • You can do some throat exercises. Repeat these vowel a, e, i, o, you loudly three minutes few times in a day.

My son is 8 years old, he has enlarge nasal polyps. What to do for treatment. And how can be cure permanently. It block his nose during respiration.

Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Guwahati
Hello and most welcome to lybrate, regarding your concern about your son having polyp, I would like to say that generally polyps with severe clinical symptoms like breathing problems, pressure symptoms with facial deformity, we should ideally go for surgery, but in small polyps I usually try with steroids like long course mometasone spray. Regarding your son, as he has breathing difficulty, first you have to get a ct pns done and he might need surgery. I sincerely wish him an early recovery and a healthy life ahead.

Quitting profession is not possible for all. You can take few sips of warm water in between, do not modify your voice much, speak less with sufficient intervals of voice rest in between. Steam inhalation after reaching home. Avoid chalk dust to peevent allergy. Do not consume chilled drinks on dry painful throat tat is due to voice abuse or overuse. Strict diet habbits too maintain your vocal hygiene.
