How to get rid of morning sneezing?

MBBS
General Physician,
Morning sneezing is mainly because of allergy. The most common is pollen allergy. Pollens are released to air by plants during early morning. If your body is allergic to these pollens then you'll get morning sneezing. However, there are many other reasons which need to be eliminated before suggesting any treatment. For further assistance you can concern me privately.Have a great day.

This could be due to wax in the ear which u have pushed further deep in the ear canal blocking it completely or u would have traumatized your ear drum while cleaning leading to pain and hearing problem. Don' t repeat it and start tab. Ibugesic plus twice a day for pain and consult an ent specialist to find out the culprit.

If the vertigo does subside with symptomatic treatment, you have to go for investigations. Most of the time it is because of bppv.

How can swimmer s ear infections that my children develop every summer be prevented?
Use a towel to dry your ears well. Tilt your head to hold each ear facing down to allow water to escape the ear canal. Pull your earlobe in different directions while your ear is faced down to help water drain out.

How To Cure Sinusitis Naturally?

M.D. (Ayurved), D.H.M, CHSE
Ayurveda, Jamnagar
How To Cure Sinusitis Naturally?

Sinusitis is an irritation or swelling of the tissue covering the sinuses. Healthy sinuses are loaded with air. But there are times when they get blocked and loaded with fluid. In such cases, germs can develop and cause an infection. Due to this infection, your nose gets heavily blocked along with you sinuses and might make it difficult for you to breathe.

Conditions that can bring about sinus blockage include the following:

  • Common cold

  • Allergic rhinitis (swelling of the lining around the nose)

  • Little developments or growths in the covering of the nose called nasal polyps

  • A deviated septum (a shift in the nasal cavity)

Here are some of the ways you can get rid of sinusitis naturally:

  1. Stay Hydrated: Drink a lot of water, soup or broth, along with juices with no added sugar and hot tea. These liquids will disperse bodily fluids and drain it from the disturbed sinuses.

  2. Salt Water Rinse: In case you suffer from sinus infections often, invest in a neti pot. This helpful container makes it simple to hydrate your nasal tract, getting out undesirable bodily fluids and any contaminants you may have breathed, an which may have been caught in the nasal cavity.

  3. Turmeric/Ginger Root: Turmeric root is an excellent fragrant spice found in most Indian and Middle Eastern dishes. Turmeric not only contains the regular calming and anti-inflammatory curcumin, it is also an antioxidant. When it is mixed with hot ginger ale and blended with hot tea, this mixture can remove excess fluid from the clogged nasal sections, ease sinus pressure and make you feel better.

  4. Spicy Food: Spicy ingredients such as mustard, hot peppers, curry, horseradish, and masala in one’s food may help in clearing sinuses. In case you like spices, think about including some hot flavours to your food to open your nasal entries.

  5. Apply Warm Packs: You can use a warm pack to keep the nasal tissues damp. Also, fill a round bowl or pot with steaming water and place your face over it with a towel around your head to inhale the steam in. This will open up your sinuses and make an easy path for fluid drainage.

  6. Take a Steam: High temperature water vapour can saturate the sinuses. Sprinkle a couple drops of eucalyptus or menthol in the shower or bath and steam up your bathroom. A hot shower can also relax the bodily fluid as well as the mucus and debris that are stuck inside your nose.

  7. Apple Cider Vinegar: Apple cider vinegar is not only powerful in disposing off sinus issues; it can also be used for different skin and hair issues. What it does essentially for sinus infection is that it clears up the nose so that the bodily fluid can be removed quickly.

Suffering from sinus from last 3-4 years after joining my college in 2012 how to get out of sinus? Anyone suggest me on this issue?

DORL, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Faridabad
First thing you should go for ct scan of nose and sinus than treatment is based on grade of the sinus, if it is grade iv than no treatment is available or effective unless you get this corrected by surgery, surgery will give you nearly 80-90%. Than remaining you can treat with homeopathy than it will help. The bone of he nose gets deviated this leads to nose breathing problem if a person suffering from nasal obstruction along with sinusits and mild to moderate nasal allergies it means most probably he is suffering from dns (deviated nasal septum. Nasal obstruction is because of the deviated portion of the nasal septum (this is the bony partition of the nose cavity. Allergies are because of the hampered muco-ciliary mechanism (normally mucus is produced in the nose to moisten our nose cavity, oral cavity, and help food bolus to move downward, this mucus is basically moves on the cilia of the nasal mucosa) this mechanism gets hampered and mucus start accumulating in the nose and sinus cavity which is why thick mucus comes from nose in patients of nose obstruction and person develops sinusiits. When a surgeon removes the nasal septum deviation has not been removed properly the symptoms persists, and patient thinks that the nose bone has again regrown. It is not because of regrowth but because of half surgery done or due to the non removal of the deviation (reason can be many) nowadays nasal septal deviation can be removed endoscopic ally. But if the sinusitis is grade ii or iii than there are possibility that you may get relief from symptoms.

The most common cause for this is acid reflux. This can be treated with anti-reflux medications & dietary changes. Dietary recommendations- 1. Avoid binge eating. Take small frequent meals 2.Avoid oily , spicy food 3. Cut down on tea, coffee 4. Maintain a gap of atleast 2 hrs between your meals & lying down Consult an ENT surgeon for an examination to ascertain the cause.

Can you suggest some medicine for stopping snoring, as my wife snoring whole night.

BHMS, DEMS
Homeopath, Pune
Hello Lybrate User, Snoring is a natural occurrence due to the lack of freely moving air through the nose and throat during sleep. Try these natural solutions and lifestyle changes, which may help her to stop snoring - * change sleeping position - sleeping on sides instead of lying on back, may help to prevent snoring. * lose weight - if she has gained weight and started snoring, then by losing weight may help her to get rid from snoring. * Drink plenty of fluids - secretions in your nose become stickier when you are dehydrated, this can create more snoring,do drink plenty of water. * Adjust your pillows - elevating your head can help open up airways and make Breathing easier. * Avoid dairy products and big meals late at night. * Try regular throat and tongue exercises. Take care.

Hi In dry and hot weather the nose dries up and starts crusting. This causes bleeding. Use saline nasal drops or sprays 3-4 times a day in both nasal cavities during these temperature changes. It should avoid the bleeding.

Hi! Fatigue and stress is only due to your continuous work last week, and not drinking water. I wanted you to take papaya along with other mixed fruits night before going to sleep twice in a week papaya will do, but other fruits daily. You will have proper motions. Do not worry. Medicine not required. Take care. With regards, Psy. MSV.

From the past 5 days I am suffering from nose bleeding. What are the symptoms of that?

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
The easiest way to stop a nosebleed is the time-honored pinch cure. Pinching the nose sends pressure to the bleeding point in the nasal septum, which helps stop the flow of blood immediately. 1. Sit up straight with your head tilted slightly forward. 2. Using your thumb and index finger, pinch the soft part of your nose below the bony bridge. 3. Do this for 5 to 10 minutes. During this time, breathe through your mouth. 4. Release the pressure gently and sit quietly for 5 minutes. 5. Repeat as necessary until the bleeding stops. Note: do not lay flat, tilt your head back or put your head between your legs. Also, do not blow your nose. Also take arnica 30 - twice daily for next 3 days.

Loss of hearing may be due to many reasons like wax, infection, perforation in ear drum or neural deafness. You need to get an audiometry (hearing test) done and review with report.
