My left tonsil has recently become visibly larger than right tonsil and there is a lump in it. Additionally, there is kind of pus at the back. It stinks sometimes and due to my smoking background I'm afraid that if it's something serious. I feel uncomfortable though there is no pain. I've tried all antibiotics as recommended by other doctors but that doesn't work. I am anxious about cancer. I'm 19 years of age. I've quit smoking but I'm really scared. My throat doesn't look good!

I usually get tonsils and sore throat. Later I developed cold and cough it usually happens whenever I eat something from outside. How to prevent it and treatment for same.

MBBS
General Physician, Hyderabad
Greetings lybrate-user, there could be multiple reasons as to why the recurrence is happening. A) low immunity secondary to anemia b) infection- either bacterial viral or infectious mononucleosis (all of which present with a more or less similar set of symptoms that you are suffering with. Advice - avoid street food, use sanitizer as much as possible and don't take chances with water. Second if you are already careful about the stuff I mentioned above then you may have to go ahead and investigate the problem. Step 1 - get a throat swab done for culture and sensitivity 2- test for infectious mononucleosis 3 cbp (complete blood test) based on reports you may have to start antibiotics or you may also have to undergo tonsillectomy. If you have more than 6 attacks of sore throat and enlarged tonsils or if you had 3 attacks per year for the past 3 years then you must undergo tonsillectomy. Hope this helps. Thanks.

Sir/Madam, I have TB and effusion in my lungs, would my family members be infected if they drink water in my glass or eat food in my plate, A doctor said me that, I spread the bacilli as long as I'm coughing, but I'm not coughing anymore, I wasn't coughing much in Earlier days either. Reply soon sir/madam, my family members are differentiating and avoiding me. Thank you.

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
It is best to avoid close contact with others while your sputum report is positive. This is the way tb spreads, through micro droplets coming out of your mouth and nose when you cough, sneeze or talk. Your family members are not discriminating, they are only taking precautions. You would do the same in their place. You can wear a mask also, a proper disposable one, but change it regularly and dispose it safely. If you wear a scarf or a hand kerchief then it's not effective.

Top 5 Sinus-Relief Home Remedies

MBBS, MS - ENT
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Top 5 Sinus-Relief Home Remedies
Acute sinusitis (acute rhinosinusitis) causes your nasal passages (sinuses) to become inflamed and swollen. This interferes with drainage and causes mucus to build up. It is difficult to breathe, area around your eyes and face may be swollen. Acute sinusitis is most often caused by the common cold. Other triggers are allergies, bacterial and fungal infections.

These self-help steps can help relieve sinusitis symptoms:
1. Get good rest. This will help your body fight infection and speed recovery.
2. Drink plenty of fluids: Like, water or juice. This will help dilute mucous secretions and promote drainage. Avoid beverages that contain caffeine or alcohol, as they can be dehydrating.
3. Sleep with your head elevated. This will help your sinuses drain, reducing congestion.
4. Moisten your sinus cavities: Drape a towel over your head as you breathe in the vapour from a bowl of hot water. Or take a hot shower. This will help ease pain and help mucus drain.
5. Apply warm compresses to your face. Place warm, damp towels around your nose, cheeks and eyes to ease facial pain.

Cough can be due to affected lungs too. Go for a chest x-ray (pa view) and sputum test if you are able to expectorate. You may also take homoeopathic treatment for it.
