I am getting regular treatment for getting washed and clean my ears. Can this be normal wax formation in ears?

Ear canals are not meant for wax blockage. Ear canal skin migrates and renews itself every 15 days. If canal is blocked, get it cleaned by doctor and subsequently no clean technique is best strategy. Put olive oil drops if itching occurs. No cleaning with ear buds.

I am 20years old boy and from last 3 days, I am suffering from continuous bleeding from my nose. I have tried many home-made remedies but none of it helped me. This problem generally appears in summer, but I'm afraid this time because its winter. please help me.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, As there are many causes of nosebleed, need to find out the exact cause to advise you the right medication: Trauma to the nose (nose picking, foreign bodies, forceful nose blowing). The most common cause of a nose bleed is drying of the nasal membranes. Tumors, particularly malignant tumor of the nose or sinuses. The incidence of nosebleeds is higher during the colder winter months when upper respiratory infections are more frequent, and the temperature and humidity fluctuate more dramatically. Use of “blood thinning medications” called anti coagulants. Recurrent nosebleeds may be a symptom of an underlying disorder such as high blood pressure. Inflammation of the nose or sinuses and cold may cause a nose bleed. Deviated septum (when the partition between your nose is crooked), foreign objects in the nose, or other nasal obstruction may also cause nosebleeds. Medication: Start taking homoeopathic medicine - Aconite 30 and Arnica 30 - both 3 times a day for 2 weeks, Get back to me.

How to stop Snoring ? I have this problem for last 20 years . I am male -44 years . All family members gets disturbed with the noise I make and I really don't know what to do . Please guide.

DORL, MBBS
ENT Specialist, Faridabad
Just give the history of alcohol intake and amount of fried yu take as this is the main culprit for snoring, avoid salty and chatpata for a long duration, get ct scan done for nose and sinus to rule out any nasal obstruction, and sleep study to rule out any impact of snoring on heart as this will tell us about apnoeic episodes.

Pharyngitis is less likely to be an infective origin that's why they don't respond to stander course of antibiotics, that's why they are of either allergic or follicular origin and a tendency or the reaction to certain factors. Therefore the permanent cure of it without any relapses .you stars homoeopathy with an expert and shore that you will be cured in 3 to 4 weeks. If you want homoeopathic treatment you can share your more details with us

Extreme dry mouth, throat, nose and eyes. What can I do? I just was diagnosed with Sjogren's Syndrome. I think this may be the reason for everything dryng up. The most disconcerting thing is my dry mouth and throat. My vocal cords are constantly burning; it even hurts to talk. Foods, toothpaste, spices, etc. And even plain water burns my vocal chords.

Nasal bleed is called epistaxis. Common causes are- Allergic rhinitis, exposure to dry air for long, sinusitis,blowing of nose, Trauma etc Treatment depends whether bleed is anterior or posterior. Make the perdon bend forwards and pinch nose for 5/10 minutes .usually bleeding stops. Anterior packing may be required. For posterior bleeds ,too packing is required by a doctor. For prevention, Use humidifiers, if dryness is excessive dryness-use saline nasal drops or vase line. Do not blow vigorously. Get checked by ENT doc to rule out other causes.

I am 49 years old male (weight around 61 kgs.) staying in the city of chennai, south india. I am a pure vegetarian. I am a glaucoma patient since 1983, when first diagnosed. I lost vision in my right eye by the time of diagnosis. Since 1983 I am using timolol maleate 0.5% eye drops twice daily for both my eyes and from the year 2001 my doctor suggested me in addition to timolol maleate to instill latanoprost for my left (has almost normal vision) eye at bed time to prevent any further damage. Now regular monitoring shows iop as very normal. Now my problem is not relating to eyes, but the timolol maleate I am using for past 32 years. As far as I could get information from the internet timolol maleate is beta-blocker and for the past 3 years my ldl & vldl levels are on the rise and hdl on the lower side for unknown reason though there is no major change in total cholesterol. I am not a diabetic (regularly monitored) nor hypertensive. Family doctor suggests to take drugs for the abnormal lipid profile. The other symptoms I am facing for the past 2 months are (1) total fatigue, (2) frequent cold with nasal discharge, (3) drowsiness, (4) shallow breath, (5) ringing sound in ears etc. I just wanted to know whether these symptoms are due to prolonged use of beta-blocker (timolol maleate eye drops), so that I can place before my ophthalmologist your observation and prevent any other future complications.Please tell.

These symptoms are unlikely to be caused by timolol maleate eye drops. It should not be used in cardiac or respiratory condition. Beside regular iop check get periodical glaucoma field examn. Your eye surgeon can monitor the optic disc cupping by funds exam. As you have only one eye on working condition. These tests should be done regularly to monitor the efficacy of the eye drops and at the same time keeping in mind about progression.

Same problem of sinuses but can you suggest something other than surgery and medicines.

MBBS
General Physician,
You seem to be bothered with allergic sinusitis. All of the allergies, what is done, is avoid direct contact with the allergen. As a routine we doctors do prescribe antihistamincs and/or steroids in the form of oral, local. And injectable medicines. Allergy tests are available and after finding the specific antigen, desensitization also can be done. Hope you are helped. Regards.

At 24, get eyes tested and get basic tests for heart like an ecg, halter & lipid profile + blood sugar. No smoking or exposure to pollution and eat heart friendly diet only. 24 is the age to be cautious about heart related problems.
