Today I would like to discuss about some common problems which we face now a days is Allergic rhinitis. It is a nose allergy and there are two types of nose allergies. One is the allergy which occurs throughout the year and the other one is seasonal allergy which occurs seasons wise that is some persons have allergy in particular seasons like the rainy season or the winter season. For perennial that is occurring the allergy, which occurs throughout the year is called perennial allergic rhinitis. Both the condition are seen at all ages and usually in children, they are associated with other problems like Asthma and other things and in old age people also because of their reduced lung capacity and reduced nasal mucociliary clearance of the secretions, due to various reasons like diabetes, hypertension and everything.
The nose allergy is also common in old age and it is increasing day by day. The nose allergy is increasing day by day due to the pollution and the changes in the weather and it is very important to take treatment for the nose allergy because both the types, the one which occurs throughout the year that is called perennial allergic rhinitis and the other one which occurs seasonally that is called seasonal allergic rhinitis. Both may lead to serious problems like sinusitis at all ages and sometimes it may lead to fungal sinusitis also in immuno-compromised and old age patients also. Therefore we need to take particular and correct treatment for nasal allergy and the best treatment for nose allergy is identifying the substance which causes the nasal allergy and avoiding it that is the best treatment. But more often it is not practical, even if you identify the correct allergen also it is very difficult for ourselves to isolate from that allergen.
Allergen is allergy causing substance. Now we need to take treatment for the nasal allergy according to protocol. There are various methods or various protocols to treat the nasal energy but the time distance protocol is using the anti-histamines uses. It uses your body’s response to the antigens therefore nose allergy is prevented. And another important nasal allergy is intra-nasal cortical steroids. So which we call INS. So therefore you need to use the intra-nasal cortical steroids which are safe and which are delivered through a pump like thing directly into the nose treatment is given and it is very important to understand the course of the disease for the patients so that they participate in the management of the allergic rhinitis which is very important because allergic treatment may last for years, sometimes years also. Therefore it is very important to know the type of allergy and which is causing allergy and the correct protocol to treat the allergy and taking the medicines in time without any break and consulting the doctor regularly as advised by the ENT surgeon. To be examine by the ENT surgeon regular follow-ups are important. So this is just up for allergy and its treatment and hope you understood it.

I am having problem of sinus. My nose gets blocked after some time intervals. I have to use nasal spray to open it as it becomes difficult to breathe. What could be the cure or medicine for this.
I have COPD and recently I had exacerbation of the same. I am regularly taking medicines as directed by Pulmonologist and have started doing deep breathing exercises as well. By and large I am OK now. However when I get up in the morning my throat is usually choked and I feel week. Steam inhalation which I take 20/30 minutes before morning inhaler, gives relief to some extend but leaves my throat dry. Please advise.
Traditionally, people resort to hearing aids in order to take care of their auditory problems. The perception of hearing reduces as age progresses and people find it absolutely necessary to come up with ways by which they can improve their hearing. However, cochlear implants have become extremely popular because of the method that it uses in comparison to the traditional methods of hearing aids.
What is a cochlear implant?
A cochlear implant is an electronic medical device that replaces the function of the damaged inner ear. Unlike hearing aids, which make sounds louder, cochlear implants bypass the damaged hair cells of the inner ear (cochlea) to provide sound signals to the brain.
Who can they help?
The cochlear implant technology can help people who:
- have moderate to profound hearing loss in both ears
- receive little or no benefit from hearing aids
- score 50% or less on sentence recognition tests done by hearing professionals in the ear to be implanted
- score 60% or less on sentence recognition tests done by hearing professionals in the non-implanted ear or in both ears with hearing aids.
Many people have cochlear devices in both ears (bilateral). Listening with two ears can improve your ability to identify the direction of sound and separate the sounds you want to hear from those you don’t.
What are the benefits of a cochlear implant?
Many adults with cochlear implants report that they:
- Hear better with a cochlear implant than with a hearing aid
- A previous study has shown that people with a cochlear implant achieve an average of 80% sentence understanding, compared with 10% sentence understanding for hearing aids1.
- Can focus better when in noisy environments.
- Find it easier to have conversations with people across meeting tables, in restaurants and other crowded places.
- Reconnect with missed sounds that they could not hear before their cochlear implant.
- Feel safer in the world as they can hear alarms, people calling out and approaching vehicles.
- Talk and hear on the phone.
- Enjoy music.
How is a cochlear implant different from a hearing aid?
A cochlear implant is very different from a hearing aid and is appropriate for individuals for whom hearing aids fail to provide benefit. A hearing aid makes sounds louder. Sound still travels through all the portions of the ear (outer ear, middle ear, inner ear) to the hearing nerve. A cochlear implant bypasses these structures and directly stimulates the hearing nerve with electrical energy. Because hearing aids amplify sounds and rely on the hearing system to convey the message, people with severe to profound hearing loss may be able to hear, but not understand speech well. The main objective of a cochlear implant is to improve speech understanding in quiet. Clarity with a cochlear implant is usually better than a hearing aid because the implant does not make sounds louder but delivers them to the hearing nerve.
There are a number of symptoms, which people should be looking out for before concluding that they have a hearing disorder:
- Inability to hear properly
- Excessive ear pain and stress on the brain
- Failure to communicate properly
- Discomfort in the mouth or nose
- Other feelings of anxiety or stress that may actually be a consequence of the hearing loss problem
