Hi, I am suffering from throat infection. What should I do to get rid from this? Please reply me fast. Its urgent.
throat infection may be due to infection of bacteria or virus.In rare cases, a throat infection may be due to a fungal strain. A fungus known as candida albicans is known to cause throat infections. if in throat infection there is throat may be too swollen for you to consume solid foods. So, eat only semi-solid foods or soups and broths. you should stop smoking when you have a throat infection. Smoking may aggravate your infection and cause you further pain and discomfort. If you have someone in your family who smokes, stay away from them as second-hand smoke can also cause you a lot of discomfort. Gargling with warm water and salt is another effective way to provide warmth to your throat and soothe it. Drinking a cup of hot milk with a pinch of turmeric,it is a home medicine for throat infection.if still problem will remain same then you can take homoeopathic medicine with share your complete medical history for further management.

Cause for heavyness in head or vertigo or dizziness after eating 1. Gastritis occurs when the lining of your digestive tract becomes inflamed due to excess stomach acid. There are several reasons this can occur including overeating, eating too much greasy foods, drinking too much caffeinated beverages and/or alcoholic drinks. Dizziness after eating is a common symptom of gastritis. 2. Emotional disorders bring with it a multitude of health issues. Stress can cause all kinds of havoc with your body. Depression hinders your immunity causing you to be more prone to health issues. A common consequence of all this emotional pressure is lightheadedness after a meal or snack. 3. Your thyroid affects every part of your body. It produces the thyroid hormone, which helps regulate how your body functions. Hyperthyroidism occurs when too much hormone is produced. Hypothyroidism happens when the thyroid is underactive and does not produce enough hormones. In either case, common symptoms include fatigue, lightheadedness with or without eating and exhaustion. 4. Ommon drugs causing lightheadedness include antidepressants, antihypertensive medications, high blood pressure medications, sedatives and ace inhibitors. Also, habit forming drugs can cause dizziness after eating as a symptom of withdrawal. 5. Postprandial hypotension is the name of a condition that causes the pooling of blood in your abdominal organs after a meal and during digestion. When your body is processing and breaking down your food, it draws a lot blood to the intestinal organs. In some people this causes distress on their system and they can experience dizziness after eating. Take for following precautions first for your problems. 1. Do not skip meals when you skip a meal, your blood pressure drops. Often, your body will work itself into frenzy and when you finally eat you will have a sudden spike in sugar. This can result in a headache, falling, dizziness and fainting. Eating junk or fatty foods when hungry can also bring on these symptoms. 2. Do not overeat when you eat too much, you feel lazy and tired and often sit for an extended period afterwards. This can cause you to feel bloated and dizzy. The best thing for your body is to eat several smaller meals throughout the day. This will help prevent all types of digestive conditions. 3. Incorporate whole grains into your diet eating starchy foods like rice and potatoes can cause postprandial hypotension because they quickly pass to your stomach. Foods made up of whole grains and protein are digested more slowly, thus keeping your body at normal blood pressure levels. 4. Don't add sugary drinks to your diet just like eating junk food, when you drink sodas or other sugary beverages you run the risk of causing your blood sugar to spike and then quickly drop. When this happens, you will experience dizziness and may even possibly faint. 5. Eat vegetables and fruits when you include lots of them in your diet, you allow powerful antioxidants into your system. Along with beneficial minerals and vitamins, they help your body fight free radicals in your system and keep it working properly. 6. Avoid vigorous activities don't push yourself too hard after a meal or you may experience dizziness after eating. When you do not allow your blood pressure to return back to normal after a meal, you can get nauseated and lightheaded. It is important to wait about an hour before doing strenuous exercises. 7. Drink enough water if you keep yourself properly hydrated, you can prevent lightheadedness and dizziness brought on by dehydration. It is important to get enough liquids into your system, stay hydrated and drink plenty of water throughout the day. Believe it or not, sometimes if you drink too much water at once you can also get dizzy. 8. Add herbal tea to your diet herbs like ginger and mint have soothing properties that can calm your stomach after a meal. They can help your digestive system work better, thus thwarting off dizziness. If still problem remain same then get an ultrasound of whole abdomen and thyroid profile test done first. Then, share reports for further management. S.

Take diet in hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, Avoid few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and control weight also.

Everyday I am waking up in the morning or at dawn when suddenly I get awake with itchiness inside nose, sneezing,runny nose, and watery eyes. It happens mostly when I get awake late at night. If I use nasivion spray and take antihistamine (sinarest/Flucold) at its onset, it goes away. But again it happens next morning. Is it rhinitis and what over the counter drug will be good? Is it good to buy a nasal spray with corticosteroid in it?

Ear wax is formed in outer portion of the ear and if you use buds which are not ear buds though, this will introduce the wax further in side the ear and this will lead to blockage, wax is produced on daily basis and if you let water go in side your ear this will help you cleaning your ears by litself and secondly ears get cleaned by chewing your food properly

Cause could be ordinary cold, if at all or a foreign body including hard wax and fungus. Ear is very sensitive part with a Ear drum and is related to hearing, balancing.

MD - General Medicine, MBBS

If this sore throat is of only a short duration, it is usually due to a viral infection. You don't need any antibiotics, some anti allergic medications like certirizine, saltwater gargling and some rest should get you cured in 2 days. If doesn't get resolved in 2 days think of taking antibiotics.
