Wax dissolving ear drops like dewax or waxonil ear drops should be used for 1 week, 3drops 3 times a day. This makes the wax soft. Then get it cleaned by an ent. Avoid using buds as they push the wax further in. Also avoid putting hydrogen peroxide in the ear.

Please suggest me what should I do? Whom to consult or what medication should I take. I am having this problem mildly since 2 years. But this has become frequent since about last 1 month. Eagerly waiting for your suggestion.

Tinnitus is basically due to hampered blood supply to ears due to which ears start dying. As this process starts a person starts hearing noises. When a person starts hearing noises then it is already late diagnosis as these noises gets heard by someone when they are of 40 db intensity, below that threshold these noises are not heard. So it is already to late and the damage has become permanent. Problem with these noises are that we can control at what level person goes to his specialist otherwise these noises keep on increasing and can give you headache frustration and depression. Get ct scan of ears and audiological profile also done.

Hi, please follow these tips to stop snoring: - reduce your weight if you are obese. - perform pranayama (breathing exercises) everyday. - quit smoking which irritates the mucosal layer of the nose and throat and causes blockage and results in snoring. - quit alcohol and sedatives which relax the throat muscles and results in snoring. - sleep on sides instead on back. - elevate the head by using a thick pillow which eases the breathing. - clear the nose before going to bed. - establish regular sleep pattern. - keep the bedroom air moist by using humidifier; as dry air irritates the mucosal membrane in the nose and throat. - perform throat exercises like repeating the vowels a, e, i, o, you loudly for 2-3 mins few times a day or keeping the tongue behind the teeth and moving it backwards - 3-4 times a day. - anti snoring appliances can also be used.

Smoking definitely worsens throat problems. You should do warm salt water gargles thrice a day for your sore throat.

After menopause I have hearing loss in my right ear. Not able to hear from my right ear. Why it happened and what is ...
hearing loss happens due to lack of estrogen hormone, because after caesation of menopause can cause lower secretion of estrogen. Mostly hearing loss occurs in left ear after caesation of menopause of 4 years and in right ear after caesation of menopause of 5-6 yrs. In your case, loss is in right ear, normally it is due to lack of estrogen hormone. So get your ear checked and if possible take hormone therapy. There is a link between menopause and hearing loss, also aging can also play a significant role in reduced hearing, and many other causes are there for hearing loss. So avoid exposure to noisy areas, loud music etc. For better protection of your hearing. Also a healthy diet can save your hearing too.

I have a consistent irritation in my throat for the past several weeks. No pain or cough. I am a very light smoker (1 or 2 sticks a day). Have tried using all sorts of cough syrups but the problem does not go away permanently. Result is I have to constantly clear my throat and it is very embarrassing to do repeatedly during meetings and social gatherings.

Frequent throat clearing can very often be a result of acid reflux. Take C. Pan-D once daily ,on an empty stomach for 10 days Alex cough lozenges thrice daily for 5 days. If your problem persists, consult an ENT specialist for throat & laryngoscopic examination.
