In summer blood coming from the nose is quite common. Just pinch the nose for about 5 minutes the bleeding should stop. Hydrate yourself by drinking plenty of water.

I am suffering with frequent problem of tonsil. Any medicine to treat this disease permanently.

MBBS, MD - Pharmacology and Therapeutics
General Physician, Visakhapatnam
Hello lybrate user, permanent cure is only surgical, it is very easy procedure, get it done by any ent specialist. If you opt for medical management there will be exacerbation's when ever you got exposed to triggering factors like exposure to cold climate/season, eating cooled stuff like ice cream, drinks etc. Use salt water gargil (mix salt in luke warm water and put in mouth, raise you r chin and try make small sound with out swallow in water). This is very good home remedy. Salt water acts as antiseptic and minimises the chance of infection/exacerbation of tonsillitis. If it is severe take antibiotics as advised by doctor. Do not use over the counter antibiotics that they may trigger resistance.

Usually this postural dizziness/vertigo is symptom of bppv (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo) that occurs due to dislodgement of some particles in the ear from one place to another which can be corrected by a manouvre(epley' s). For that u should consult an ent specialist or else start tab. Vertin 16 mg three times a day.

I Am having throat infection and i got a swelling too in my neck. last week it happend the same. At that time i got medicine and fit for some days but now again i got the same problem what shloud i do ?

MS - ENT, DNB (ENT)
ENT Specialist, Delhi
A swelling in the neck along with a sore throat suggests that you have a serious infection - the neck swelling is likely to be an enlarged lymph node. if the problem is recurring we need to find out why. maybe some blood tests as well as a throat swab would help in helping us treat this in a more permanent way. with regards

Neti Treatment - Nose Cleansing for Clear Breathing

Neti Treatment - Nose Cleansing for Clear Breathing

You know that breathing is very much integral to staying alive. It is the only visible symptom that you are alive. Breathing helps in providing oxygen to the body which is essential to carry out various physiological processes. The nose is the organ through which we breathe and should be kept clean so that it does not interfere with the breathing process or cause any sort of breathing difficulty.

Therefore, cleaning your nose on a regular basis is very important in terms of improving your health and increasing your lifespan. Cleansing your nose on a regular basis can improve the quality of breath and help in protecting your breathing passage as well.

Ayurvedic treatment: Neti
Generally Ayurvedic techniques are considered to be the safest ways to clean your nose. Neti in Ayurveda is a cleansing procedure, which involves using a modified cup referred to as a nasal rinse cup.  The cup is filled with water or saline solution and is normally used to clear the breathing passages or the nostrils in particular. Neti is administered in the following steps:

  1. Prepare a saline solution by taking a quarter teaspoon of table salt and dissolve it in a cup of boiled and cooled or distilled water. You also need to take care of the fact that the salt is non-iodized.
  2. After preparing the solution you need to put it in the 'Neti' cup. Then put the nozzle of the vessel firmly against one of your nostril in such a way that the water does not leak out.
  3. Breathe in and out steadily through your mouth.
  4. Lift the pot and tilt it in a manner such that water enters your nostril. After half of the water has passed into your nostrils, remove the nozzle and let the water to run out of your nostril.
  5. Blow your nostril to remove any moisture that is left inside.
  6. Repeat the process with the other nostril.

It is very important to ensure that your nostrils are fully dry and no moisture is present inside as it might lead to further complications such as infection and inflammation within the nasal or the sinus cavities. It has been observed that using a nasal rinse cup during cold seasons helps to reduce nasal congestion to a great extent. Excessive cough or mucus can also be cleared up by using this particular method. It also helps to improve the quality of breath and it also helps you to relax and stay calm. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Can Pollutants Lead To Sinus Problem?

MBBS, MS - ENT
ENT Specialist, Ghaziabad
Can Pollutants Lead To Sinus Problem?

Sinusitis refers to a common condition characterised by inflammation and swelling of cavities surrounding nasal passages, commonly known as your sinuses. When something interferes with the flow of air into the sinuses and obstructs mucus drainage out of it, sinus infection or sinusitis mainly occurs.
The most common symptoms of this condition include headache or pain in the facial region, nasal congestion and discharge, loss of smell and fever in some cases. To ensure that you opt for the correct treatment it is necessary to identify the causes of blockage. Here are the chief causes responsible for giving you a sinus infection.

1. Viruses
In most cases, a sinus infection is triggered by common cold and flu, which are caused by viruses. Swelling of nasal tissues occurs due to cold, in turn creating a blockage for the holes that are meant for draining mucous. In this case, rather than opting for antibiotics, take precautions against flu and cold. You can even consider getting a flu shot.

2. Pollutants
Certain pollutants and allergens or deviation of septum can be the cause behind sinus infections as they trigger coughing, irritation of the nose and inflammation. Some of these pollutants are dust, smoke and harmful gases present in the air or substances with a strong odour (certain foods, flowers, perfumes etc). To minimize chances of sinusitis, try to stay away from these irritants to the maximum extent possible. Moreover, you can also use an air purifier to reduce the effects of air pollution.

3. Long term use of nasal decongestant sprays
Nasal decongestant sprays may help you get rid of congestion, but on the other hand they are responsible for the constriction of the blood vessels present in your nose. Moreover, if used for a long time, these nasal products may worsen the symptoms of sinusitis, especially if the directions for use are not correctly followed. Also, prolonged use of the sprays can give rise to rebound nasal congestion, which is basically a relapse of congestion. So, try to minimise the use of it and follow directions very carefully if you do need to use it.

4. Smoking
Smoke from cigarettes has an effect similar to pollutants on your nose. Cigarette smoke plays a significant role in degrading the natural sinus-cleaning system of your body resulting in more gunk build up in the sinuses, in turn clogging nasal passages. Moreover, smoking also leads to inflammation, triggering sinus infections. So, try to cut down on your smoking if not quit altogether. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ent Specialist.

Take tab. Combiflam when you have pain. Also consult an ent specialist as the exact cause can be figured out only then. It could be because of wax or some other ear infection. Don't delay the consultation.
