How can I stop my bleeding inside the nose ?

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist,
Bleeding from the nose can be due to many reasons like deviated nasal septum, any mass(tumor) or polyp in the nose, any bleeding disorder or any systemic illness. Cause can only be found out by examination and investigations. Do u have any complaint of nasal obstruction? u can start nasivion nasal drops 2-2-2-2 for 1 week.

Dea rfollow the remedies for 1 month and avoid A/C till then..: 1.Boil 1 to 2 liters of water and add a few drops of clove oil (or a large spoonful of cloves), 10-12 crushed mint leaves, and a few drops of eucalyptus oil (or 1/3 cup of eucalyptus leaves). Inhale the steam for 10-15 minutes. Continue this twice a day until congestion clears and then once a week to clear the phlegm that gets deposited in the sinuses. 2.Have 1 teaspoon of fresh ginger juice with 1 teaspoon of honey in it twice a day. 3.Do pranayam daily for 30 min. 4. Take warm water plain, or prepare it with cinnamon and black pepper. 5.Avoid cold, heavy, oily foods, cold drinks, chocolates, ice cream, cold water, etc. 6. Sleep while lying on one side and with a pillow beneath the head. This prevents the accumulation of mucus in the air passages and helps to avoid difficulties in breathing. 7. Revert back after 10 days for further management and medication.

I have deviated septum, My left nose is 90% Block. I do not want to do surgery, What should I do?

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
If deviation is gross and your problem is of long duration and effecting your daily routine then you should go for surgery (septoplasty). There is nothing to worry about the surgery. There will not be any scar mark and can be done by endoscopic method with a fast recovery and same day discharge.

Hello if you had got an endoscopy done kindly forward the details pics of endoscopy would recommend some thing. He might have had a ulcer or wound that needs evaluation. Avoid spicy food as it would aggravate pain. By flexible naso laryngoscopy doctor could show you what he has been suffering and treatment needed. Take care.

Hi my nose is always blocked due to which I am facing breathing problem specially in night I had a ct pns it says All paranasal sinuses are clear.

If nasal block is only on right side and no sneezing/running nose then it can be due to dns to rt but your ct report says only mild dns which should not cause such problem. Take second opinion of a ent spe and follow their advise. If dns is the cause then surgery is only option.

Hi, last month it was my first experience while I was starting my work in office, my ears started to vibrate like a pulsate, I felt annoying and immediately took leave and consulted ent specialist? he prescribed me vertin tablet 16mg, I was alright taking that tablet. Again from last two week I am feeling the same vibration in my ears and imbalance? I consulted another ent specialist who did septoplast surgery to me on 2010? he did some tests using earphones in my ears and told there is no problem in my ears and I will become perfect in 10 days, he prescribed me with 2 tablets (prothiaden 25mg night time after food and prodex 20mg morning after food) I felt very anxiety and confused and fear like phobia very suddenly when I took prothiaden 25mg for the 2nd day. I called to doctor and he asked me to stop prothiaden as that was side effect? the third day afternoon I felt same and was sweating too? again I called to doctor and he asked me to stop both the tablet and asked me to consult neurologist. Neurologist doctor told me I have panic disorder and I will be alright in few days? he prescribed me nexito 10mg and betacap tr 40? unfortunately the next day I again felt weakness in my body and dry mouth and wheezing? once I phone called to doc he asked me to stop betacap as that is side effect as I have asthma? but even though after taking nexito I am feeling sick, difficulty in breathing? I stopped all the tablets and I was fine little for the next day? I felt weakness anxiety again sometime for half an hour to one hour today afternoon while I was working in office? I still feel shaken worrying if it comes again to me? what should I do if again I feel the same?

Hello your symptoms match those of panic disorder. Nexito takes atleast 1-2 weeks to show effect. You need to wait till it starts working. In the meanwhile, you can take an anti anxiety drug like clonazepam during a panic attack. Also, psychotherapy done along with medicines shows better results.

Allergy is what you are having. The symptoms are early morning sneezing along with blocking of the nose. Taking an anti allergic tablet for a month should help. If need be a nasal spray might be beneficial.

MS - ENT,MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Kolkata
Hello lybrate-user best home solution for sinusitis is to take plain water steam inhalation twice a day. For long term relief you have to first served whether the sinuses are infected. If infected or having allergic problems medical treatment will be needed. For intermittent problems steam is good. Get an xray pns to know whether treatment is needed. Hope this helps.

I am a teenager hand have sinus problem I can not enjoy many cold food which I want to eat please reply to my answer.

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.

Hello, Prominent blood vessels in anterior & inferior part of nasal septum ( Little's area ) is a common cause of nasal bleed in children. It is usually a self limiting condition , local pressure - pinching of nostrils usually stops the bleed. Please seek the help of an ENT physician for clinical examination and detail management.
