My grandfather is suffering from nose bleeding problem since 2 months so what is the home curatio for this.
I've been having severe ear pain in my right ear for the past 5 hours, I took a crocin cold and flu Max but the pain persists. I also put candibiotic ear drops. I have had a running nose and sore throat since the past 3-4 days I was listening to music in the morning through my earphones. The pain in the ears is excruciating and nothing helps.
I have unbearable sore throat from many days, I have difficulty in swallowing and there is also pain while talking, please help.
I have hearing problem on my right ear and tinnitus on both sides of my head. Is there any treatment available for my problems?
I have cold from 3 months. My right nose is blocked at night when I sleep. When I clean my nose a sound comes from my right ear.
I am 27 years old male. I have a weird allergic condition for almost 5 years which even my doctor have been unable to diagnose. I get excessive sneezing and irritation in my nasal passage and sometimes headache but absence of sinusitis pain. I take a tablet (Montair Lc) which my doctor prescribed me to suppress the excessive sneezing but no permanent solution to it. I don't even know what my condition really is. I'll grateful if you can point out me in a right direction.
The term sinus is usually used in reference to the cavities near the nose. If these cavities become inflamed or swollen, the condition is known as sinusitis. If this condition lasts for more than 12 weeks, it is categorized as chronic sinusitis. This leads to a buildup of mucus that can make breathing difficult. Home remedies may help relieve some of the symptoms associated with this condition but in most cases, medication is required.
Symptoms of Chronic Sinusitis
Sinusitis usually affects adults but in some cases, children may be affected as well. Symptoms of this condition can be categorized as primary symptoms and secondary symptoms. In order for it to be diagnosed with chronic sinusitis, at least 2 of the primary symptoms should be present. These include:
- Thick discharge from the nose or discharge that flows down the back of the throat. This discharge may be yellowish or greenish in colour.
- Difficulty breathing through the nose because of nasal congestion.
- Swelling, tenderness and pain around the nose, eyes, cheeks and forehead.
- Loss of smell and taste in the case of adults.
- A persistent cough in the case of children.
The secondary symptoms of this condition include:
- Pain in the ear
- Pain in the teeth and upper jaw
- A cough that is worse at night
- A sore throat
- Persistent bad breath
- Frequent headaches
Cause of Chronic Sinusitis
Chronic sinusitis may be caused by a number of factors. The most common amongst these are:
- Nasal polyps: This refers to the growth of tissue in the nasal passages that block the air path and allow mucus to build up.
- Deviated nasal septum: The septum is a wall that separates both nostrils. In some cases, this wall may deviate so as to block the sinus passages.
- Respiratory tract infections: Cold is the most common infection responsible for chronic sinusitis. Such infections can thicken the sinus membranes and block the passageway for mucus to drain out. This infection may be caused by bacteria, viruses or fungi.
- Allergies: Allergies such as hay fever can block the sinus passages and lead to chronic sinusitis. Asthma also causes chronic sinusitis. a reaction to aspirin may also cause a blockage in the sinus passages.
- Other medical conditions: Medical conditions such as HIV, gastroesophageal reflux and cystic fibrosis can also cause chronic sinusitis. Patients suffering from diseases related to the immune system have a high risk of suffering from chronic sinusitis.
