Viral Throat Infection - Get Relief!

DNB, Diploma in Otorhinolaryngology (DLO), MBBS
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Viral Throat Infection - Get Relief!

The common reason why most of us get throat infections is because they are viral in nature. This means that if one person gets a throat infection then he transmits it to others by touching, coughing and sneezing etc.
Viral throat infections can be managed easily. There are several home remedies that can alleviate your viral infection. However, it is suggested to consult an ENT specialist if the home remedy is not providing any relief to you.

  1. Gargling: It is one of the most popular methods of treating viral throat infection. All you need to do is mix one tablespoon of salt in 200 ml of water and warm the solution. When the water becomes lukewarm, take a small portion of it and rinse your throat with the solution. Take care that the solution remains within your throat and does not reach your stomach. Rinse your throat for 5 minutes and repeat the procedure after a rest of 2 minutes. Ensure that the water remains lukewarm for effectiveness.
  2. Inhalation: Another common method of ridding yourself of viral throat infections is to inhale steam. Boil some water mixed with eucalyptus oil. When the water starts developing bubbles, take your face near it, cover it and the pot containing water with a dry towel and inhale the steam. This procedure is inconvenient for many people because inhalation results in sweating, but the result is perceptible. You must inhale steam for at least five minutes. Once you are done with inhalation, avoid taking cool fluids like cold water etc., else the effect would be reversed and your infection might get more severe.
  3. Take lots of fluids: Strange as it may sound, viral throat infection can also be treated by taking lots of hot fluids. The warm temperature helps in neutralising the viruses, while the fluids prevent the dehydration of the body. Take hot tea, coffee etc. when you have an infected throat.
  4. Drink hot milk and turmeric: Many mothers administer this solution to their kids to treat throat infections caused by viruses. This concoction is best taken before sleeping in the night. Turmeric has been found to carry several anti-microbial properties.
  5. Avoid smoking: If you are a smoker, you must avoid smoking to alleviate your viral throat infection.
  6. Use decongestants and nasal sprays: These substances make breathing easier by contracting the swollen mucous membranes. Nasal sprays also help relieve runny noses and post-nasal drips, which are so irritating and inconvenient to many. However, avoid administering this remedy to small children. Since these sprays contain synthetic drugs, it is advisable to stick to prescribed dosages for different age groups. Please also consult your ENT doctor before administering the nasal sprays to yourself or anybody else.

Types And Treatment Of Tonsillitis!

Tonsillitis is a disorder of the tonsils present on the back of the throat. 

It is mere * myth * that the tonsils acts as a defensive mechanism in the body as they prevent the body from infections. Tonsillitis can occur at any age. It is widely prevalent among school going kids as they get exposed to the different environment for the first time.

With age advances frequency of attacks reduces because the body gains immunity after each episode.

Tonsillitis may be classified into two types: 

  1. Chronic tonsillitis: when frequency and duration of acute attacks increases. This type of tonsillitis tends to last for an extended duration with symptoms of throat pain fever occasionally ear ache off and on also known as acute on chronic illness
  2. Acute tonsillitis: This is a form of acute infection which usually doesn't recur but may set once or so. 

A virus or bacteria that causes common cold may result in tonsillitis. The most common cause of this disorder is the strep bacteria. School going children are especially vulnerable to this disorder because they are most prone to various infections.

Common symptoms: 

The various symptoms of tonsillitis are 

  • Swallowing difficulties 
  • Sore throat 
  • Bad breath 
  • Fever and chills 
  • A headache, ear ache, and stomach ache 
  • May experience stiffness in the neck and the jaw 
  • Swollen tonsils with possible redness 
  • Change in voice when tonsil such enlarged - hot potato voice.
  • Symptoms of cold

Treatment: The treatment for tonsillitis is usually antibiotics in acute cases and in some resistant chronic cases, operation tonsillectomy is indicated . Surgery is only done in cases where tonsillitis is chronic in nature and recurrence is more than 3 times per year or a child fails to thrive . 

This operation is very simple now a days with new technologies.

Most dreaded complications of tonsillitis is the same bacteria attacks heart kidney and small joints. Patient may get rheumatic fever , joint pain and nephritis. Therefore it should not be neglected.

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.

Ways To Prevent Hearing Loss!

DNB, Diploma in Otorhinolaryngology (DLO), MBBS
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Ways To Prevent Hearing Loss!

The partial or total inability to hear is known as hearing loss. It can be present at birth or develop later in life.

There are a number of factors, which may cause hearing loss:

  1. Age - Age is the biggest factor when it comes to the loss of hearing, and you may lose the ability to hear as you age. This condition is known as presbycusis. It becomes difficult to understand high-frequency sounds like that of a child or a woman when you get old.
  2. Noise - When you are exposed to loud noises for a prolonged period of time, it damages your ears. This leads to loss of hearing. 5% of the total population of the world is affected by noise (the degree of suffering varies). It may be a result of continuous exposure to loud music or a sudden exposure to a loud noise like an explosion or fire cracker. Even too much use of ear phones and cell phones causes damage.  Prevention - Use less of cell phones, disco, fire cracker, loud speaker.
  3. Hereditary disorders - Hearing disorder may be inherited by the dominant or recessive genes of parents in the child.
  4. Trauma - Serious injuries of the head/ears may cause loss of hearing, which may be either temporary or permanent. When damage is caused to the brain, the brain fails to process the message conveyed by the ears. So even if the ears are totally functional, a person may face the problem in hearing.
  5. Perinatal problems - The ototoxic effects on the fetus due to excess intake of alcohol during pregnancy lead to hearing the loss in about 64% of the infants born to alcoholic mothers. Also, premature birth can be associated with hearing loss due to high risk of being exposed to noise in neonatal units.
  6. Diseases of ear - Specially pus discharge damages eardrum and hearing bones. Some time also damages the nerve of hearing. Do not neglect this issue. It can be easily operated and you are safe.

Knowing about the causes of hearing loss can lead you a step closer to preventing this disorder.

  1. Aging effect can be prevented --- by taking nerve tonics, avoiding ototoxic drugs, and avoiding noise trauma. If hearing loss has set in best is to use hearing aid prescribed by authentic person.
  2. Be more aware -- You should be diligent and aware of the situations, which may risk your hearing ability and should try to avoid such situations as much as possible.  Limit your exposure to sources of hazardous noises like firearms, firecrackers, concerts and pubs.
  3. Take precautionary measures -- If your occupation calls for working at an environment of loud noises, use earplugs or earmuffs. Also, make sure that you work in a place where employers take all the necessary measures of noise control under the federal or state regulations.
  4. Monitor your use of gadgets --- Monitor and control the use of hearing devices, and try to reduce the use of headphones/ earphones as much as possible.
  5. During pregnancy -- NO to alcohol smoking and other ototoxic medicines. To prevent genetic transfer of hearing loss, one should avoid marriage in close relatives as is done in south India and mohmadden community.
  6. Visit the Dr. --- For proper management of hearing loss asap. hearing loss is treatable or can be taken care !!

Earwax - Is it Good or Bad for You?

Earwax - Is it Good or Bad for You?
Earwax… Good or Bad for You?

Using an Ear Bud twice a week is very normal because we do not want the wax to be there in our ear. We consider it a sign of being unhygienic. But, are we doing the right thing by removing it? How often should we clean ears? Let’s see the truth behind ear wax.

1. Lubricating factor: Ear wax should not be removed! Removal of earwax will make the ear dry and dull which will result in itching. Ears need wax for lubrication and that’s the reason it’s always advised not to use cotton swabs or ear buds for removing ear wax.

2. Acts as a shield: Earwax is not as bad and dirty as we tend to think. Infact, it is good to have ear wax as it acts as a shield by saving our ears from dust, bacteria and other micro-organisms which create irritation and infection in them.

3. Cleanliness of ears could result in perforation of eardrum: When you are trying to clean up your ear, you might be pushing the wax further inside which will block your ear and that could make you have hearing problem. Perforation of the eardrum at times calls for a surgery.

4. Earwax, a natural cleanser: Earwax has got antifungal and antibacterial properties which makes it useful for the ears. It is also a self-cleanser in a way that one doesn’t have to remove wax, it automatically comes out either by getting dried up or in any other form and that’s the time you can bring it out.
Although we think that having wax in ears is bad but it’s good and healthy. Yes, you must get it cleaned every once in awhile if it’s causing irritation. It has its own way of coming out without the use of ear buds. So, stay away from ear buds as much as you can.

Discharging ears are not a good sign. Take private consultation and go ahead with Dr. Advice. You may need operation. Ear is close to important structures like brain, facial nerve, lest you get other problems like paralysis of face and brain abscess though uncommon.
