I have suffering with sinus from 2 years and I already consulted a doctor they said about some operation. Is there any other option with out an operation.

Sinusitis is an inflammation, or swelling, of the tissue lining the sinuses. Normally, sinuses are filled with air, but when sinuses become blocked and filled with fluid, germs (bacteria, viruses, and fungi) can grow and cause an infection.Conditions that can cause sinus blockage include the common cold, allergic rhinitis, nasal polyps or a deviated septum. Chronic sinusitis is a condition characterized by sinus inflammation symptoms lasting 8 weeks or longer. May be you are suffering from nasal polyps or DNS. please mention your symptoms so that treatment can be prescribed.

Dear Harish लगभग 10 ग्राम भुनी हुई हुई फिटकरी तथा 100 ग्राम चीनी को बारीक पीसकर आपस में मिला लें और बराबर मात्रा में चौदह पुड़िया बना लेते हैं। सूखी खांसी में एक पुड़िया रोजाना 125 मिलीलीटर गर्म दूध के साथ सोते समय लेना चाहिए। इससे सूखी में बहुत लाभ मिलता है।

Sinusitis: Controlling it without Surgery

Sinusitis: Controlling it without Surgery

The inflammation of the cavities around nasal passage is known as sinusitis. When the cavities are full of fluid, germs attach themselves to the fluids, which give rise to infections. Some of the causes of sinusitis are common colds, allergic rhinitis problem, nasal polyps and deviated septum. You can also learn about common ear infections.

There are 4 different types of sinusitis:

  1. Acute sinusitis: It remains for about 4 weeks or less. It is usually characterized by a runny nose and pain in the face which will stay for at least 10 to 14 days.
  2. Sub acute sinusitis: It is almost like the acute sinusitis but stays longer for about 4 to 8 weeks.
  3. Chronic sinusitis: The inflammation in this case lasts about 8 weeks, sometimes longer than that.
  4. Recurrent sinusitis: In this, the sinusitis attack keeps occurring all through the year.

At times, to clear up the blocked sinuses, a surgery is mandatory. This can be painful hence many are hesitant to go through with a surgery. If you want to control sinusitis so that it doesn't reach the limit where you have to go through a surgery, here are some tips of what you might be able to do regularly to clear your chances of controlling this:

  1. Take steam: This is the most common and easy way to control sinusitis. The steam helps to break down the excess mucus in the nasal passage and also reduces the inflammation of the sinuses. All you need is water. Heat it up to the required temperature and then inhale the steam. You will get a lot of relief if you do this regularly.
  2. Nasal Irrigation: This is basically the process of flushing the infected and stale mucus out of the nasal cavity. Take a liter of sterile water, mix one tablespoon of kosher salt and baking soda each. Then with the help of a syringe or a neti pot, wash your nostrils with the solution. The mucus will start coming out and your nasal cavity will clear out.
  3. Use warm washcloth: Lie down and place a warm washcloth (a washcloth dipped in warm water and wringed) on your forehead and nose region. The warmth from the washcloth will break down the mucus and clear the congestion.

I have cough for last few years I tried many medicines and treatment it can't gone so please give me a solution.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Most of the long lasting coughs, if tuberculosis is ruled out are because of recurrent allergic laryngitis. Specialised science of homeopathy has very effective cure without cough syrups. Contact and get relief in almost no time.

Here my breathe rate of lungs has been increased. Dat mean just more than before. And how should you cure my lungs nw. And which I'm a smoker for last few months.

MBBS
General Physician,
Have balanced diet, regular sleep and light exercises and avoiding addictions if any must suffice. Keep a close watch on these things, even if you insist medicines can be prescribed after a counseling session. Regards.

As you have dust allergy most probably your irritation is also due to allergy. Anti-allergic eye drops will give you relief from itching but i suggest you consult a pulmonologist who specializes in allergic disorders and get yourself desensitized or start taking anti allergic tablets like montelukast
