Pain & itch in left side of throat difficulty in swallowing checked by myself its white colour mark inside.
This is due to the drymouth and this is becoz of lack of hydration of the mouth, this can be replenished with good fresh fruits, shakes, banana, milk products, raisins and other iron rich diet.

Please get yourself checked for an accidental eardrum perforation by an ent specialist. You might need a course of antibiotic and analgesic if it is infected. Plug your ear with cotton before taking bath. Do not try to clean your ear on your own.

Dizziness - Can it be a Sign of Ear Disturbance?

MBBS, MS - ENT, DNB (ENT)
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Dizziness - Can it be a Sign of Ear Disturbance?

Are you feeling lightheaded, unbalanced or woozy lately? Are you having strange sensations in the ears and eyes? These indicate that you are suffering from dizziness, a condition affecting the body’s sensory organs. It can cause fainting at times as well. It is not a disease, but a symptom of several disorders. Dizziness is caused by inner ear disturbances, effects of medication, motion sickness and underlying health conditions, such as poor blood circulation, infections or injuries.

Test and diagnosis
If you feel dizzy for a prolonged period of time or if the dizziness occurs and reoccurs, a special treatment is required. This is because dizziness may make you prone to several risks in everyday life. Several tests are carried out to find out the cause of the dizziness. If a stroke is suspected, an MRI scan or CT scan is carried out. A physical examination is undertaken in which the way you walk and balance are observed and the nerves of the central nervous system are checked. Hearing and balance tests may also be required, which are as follows:

  • Eye movement testing in which the path of the eyes is observed while tracking an object in motion. An eye motion test may be given where cold and warm water is placed in the ear canal.
  • Head movement tests are carried out when benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is suspected.

Treatment
Treatment of dizziness includes medicines, therapies and balance exercises.

Medicines

  • Water pills are prescribed when a patient has Meniere’s disease, which helps in reducing dizziness.
  • Antihistamines provide temporary relief from dizziness.

Therapy

  • Head position maneuvers: A technique known as canalith repositioning helps in resolving dizziness quickly. It can be performed by a doctor, therapist or audiologist. The position of the head is maneuvered in the process.
  • Balance therapy: Several exercises help in making the body’s balance system lesser sensitive to motion. This technique, known as vestibular rehabilitation, is used for people suffering from dizziness due to inner ear conditions.
  • Psychotherapy: This therapy may be used for patients who experience dizziness because of anxiety disorders.
  • Use of antibiotics: An antibiotic by the name of gentamicin may be injected in the inner ear for disabling the balance function. The unaffected ear performs that function.
  • Other procedures: A procedure known as labyrinthectomy may be used for disabling the vestibular labyrinth in the affected ear.

If you experience dizziness continuously, it is important for you to visit an ENT specialist. An ENT specialist deals with problems related to the ear, nose and throat and will be able to provide you with the best diagnosis and treatment for dizziness.

I am 51 years male I am suffering from sinusitis from 10 years there is pain below I bows, please give suggestion or prescription for the above problem.

DORL, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Faridabad
Main symptoms for sinusitis are thick nasal discharge, headache, watering eyes, forehead pain, recurrent infection of nose and mouth, post nasal drip, sinusitis, is nothing but a physiological disorder of nose which led by malfunctioning of aerodynamics of nose (temporary sinusitis, secondly it is because of repeated infections of the sinus (permanent sinusitis) sinuses regulations and air conditioning of the air which we breathe and to get the benefit of above we must have normal, well sized opened sinusitis and hence nose breathing is required, those who breathe from mouth, they have tendency to get more throat and lungs infections. Recurrent sinus infection, pollution, poor diet, spicy food, long term steam inhalation from nose, and allergies leads to thick discharge from nose. This thick mucus if stays in the sinuses, it leads to irritation of the sinus skin which is mucosa and this go on growing hence leads to permanent sinusitis this extra growth is called nasal polyps this is where patient needs surgical correction. If patient comes to nose surgeon at right time, doctor can revert his/her symptoms and surgery can be abandoned. Sinusitis if patient does not take serious steps to correct might lead to cardiac symptoms, lung diseases, etc. Once there are nasal polyps you have to go for surgery immediately.

My wife have bleeding problem in nose once or twice in every year from last 3 years. What is the problem and what is treatment.

MS , MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Bangalore
Hi. Bleeding from the nose, both in children and young adults is due to nose picking. Although in elderly its mainly because of hypertension. Sometimes even vigorous rubbing of nose could cause nasal bleed. As an emergency, you could pinch the nose for five minutes while you breath through the nose and that should stop nasal bleed.

I wish a surgery to my nose to make it small. I heard that some surgeries may fail. So is there any danger for me when any failure takes place. Or whether my nose becomes too bad when any failure takes place. Which doctor can I trust?

MS - ENT
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
You need to see a plastic surgeon doing cosmetic nose surgery. No surgery can guarantee 100% cure or results, you have to be prepared for some unfortunate post operative events. Discuss with the doctor carefully and seek complete advice.
