I have severe sinus issues and in winters I get breathing issues. I did CT scan and PNS for that on which the doctors told me to go for operation. Is there any other remedy for that? Will the operation be able to cure sinus completely?

BHMS

Hi lybrate-user, Soft growths arising from mucous membrane of nose or paranasal sinus are referred as nasal polyps. They are painless and non cancerous growths. There is no specific cause leading to nasal polyps. However, certain factors including nasal allergies, nasal infections and chronic nasal catarrh are linked with formation of nasal polyps. Nasal polyps lead to symptoms of stuffy nose, post nasal drip, sneezing, runny nose, loss of smell and headaches Also if this is a seasonal allergy and sinus issue, you can go for Homeopathy. The most common treatment option suggested by conventional system in nasal polyps is surgical removal; But surgery offers a  temporary relief  in many cases. This is so because surgery is just excising the polyps and not taking care of the body’s tendency to form polyps. In most cases, Nasal polyps reappear after surgery. Homeopathy offers effective, natural and alternative treatment for nasal polyps. Homeopathic medicines promise a permanent cure in nasal polyps by treating the root cause.  Homeopathic medicines cure nasal polyps in a safe and gentle manner.

Perichondritis - Can Sports Injuries Lead to it?

Perichondritis - Can Sports Injuries Lead to it?

Perichondritis is an infection that occurs in the tissues surrounding the cartilage of the outer ear which provide nourishment to the cartilage. It is also known as auricular Perichondritis. In some cases, the immune system of the body may turn dysfunctional and start to destroy these tissues. Such a medical condition is then known as relapsing Perichondritis.

It is usually caused when the tissues experience trauma. Certain causes are:
1. It may occur after a surgery due to surgical trauma
2. Certain sports injuries
3. Ear piercing increases the risk of this infection
4. Any burn, laceration and cuts around the outer ear
5. If you have untreated ear condition such as swimmer’s ear (infection in the outer canal of the ear)

The symptoms of Perichondritis are:
1. You may experience swelling and redness in the affected area
2. You may have a fever
3. Pus may develop in the affected area
4. In some cases, the ear structure may be deformed
In addition to the above symptoms, relapsing Perichondritis may cause hearing loss, sudden weight loss, pain in your muscles and complications in your respiratory system.

Treatment
The treatment of Perichondritis usually involves antibiotics. Antibiotics are administered depending on the severity of the symptoms. If there is trapped pus involved, then surgery may be required to treat the condition. An incision is made in the affected area and then the pus is drained out. If the infection is extremely severe resulting in deformity of the ear, then parts of the ear might have to be amputated. Plastic surgery may also be used to correct the shape of the ear.

In case of relapsing Perichondritis, certain steroid medications are administered to suppress the immune system to prevent it from attacking the tissues. There are some preventive measures, which you can employ to avoid Perichondritis. Avoid piercing your ear to reduce chances of contracting this infection. Also, if you have conditions such as swimmer’s ear, then make sure it is treated at the earliest.
