Sir - go for a completer detox of your body with the help of panchakarma therapy. Regarding your sneeezing - wheezing - opt for ayurveda's nasyam therapy - this will greatly help you. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking - these wud also improve your immunity powers.

Tonsillectomy - When Should You Go For It?

ENT Specialist, Delhi
Tonsillectomy - When Should You Go For It?

The tonsils are soft tissue masses which are located at the back of your throat, usually at the pharynx. The tonsils are masses which are part of the lymphatic system that helps fight infections. However, tonsils can themselves become inflamed and cause a lot of pain. Tonsillectomy is a procedure to remove the tonsils and relieve pain.

Why is tonsillectomy performed?
A few decades back, tonsillectomy was a routine surgery performed to relieve any pain within the tonsils. This method of treatment however has changed over the past few decades as pain medications for inflammation have improved vastly. However, tonsillitis is still performed in many cases wherein it tends to cause acute problems. Some of the cases it is applicable in are:

  1. Chronic bad breath problems caused by recurrent inflammation of the tonsils
  2. Recurrent sore throats caused by tonsillitis
  3. It is also done along with dental surgery for correcting teeth with imperfect positioning
  4. Abscess formation in the mouth
  5. Upper airway being obstructed due to inflammation, thus causing difficulty with sleeping, snoring, or causing sleep apnea (irregular breathing during sleep)
  6. Ear infections being regularly caused by inflammation of the tonsils

Other reasons why it may be recommended
Tonsillectomy may be also be recommended when there are no indications of problems but tonsillitis and other infections keep cropping up too regularly. This affects children and can make them sick or keep them in pain regularly. Some of these other indications are mentioned below:

  1. Tonsil infections and inflammations happening too frequently within a year
  2. Tonsillitis is caused by bacterial infection wherein the antibiotics aren’t effective
  3. Formation of pus in the form of an abscess within or around the tonsils which keep forming even after repeated drainage or administering antibiotics

Possible complications and risks
Like any other form of surgery, tonsillectomy has certain risks associated with it as well. However, these are very rare. Some of these risks and complications are mentioned as follows –

  1. Swelling of the mouth: The tongue and the soft palate or the roof of the mouth may swell, resulting in breathing difficulties an few hours after the surgery.
  2. Infection: As is the case with any surgery, infections may occur in rare cases, which may require further treatment.
  3. Adverse reactions to anesthetics: Many patients exhibit an adverse reaction to anesthetics and may develop symptoms such as a headache, nausea, muscle soreness and frequent vomiting.
  4. Bleeding during surgery or healing: Although it is rare, bleeding during and after surgery has been reported after all sorts of procedures and it may occur with tonsillectomy as well. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ENT specialist.

Respected Sir, I am suffering from cough since 2 to 3 years. I was under treatment of a local physician but when there is no more relief I went to CMC vellore and was under treatment of Dr. Shakti Kumar Bal, DNB, - Dept. Of Pulmonary Medicine, CMC Vellore. While staying at Vellore I had no problem, but at the returning when I was At Bankura, Westbengal Railway Station then again the cough started, so after return at my home I visited a local physician He gave me some antibiotics and a Cough Syrup Trump-D. But it not work. Whenever I come in contact with cold air the cough started. So I consult the CMC Vellore doctor and he advice me to take MDI Seroflo 125 mch 2 puffs twice daily via spacer MDI Asthalin 100 mcg 2 puffs as and when there is cough in between the doses of Seroflo 125 mcg for three weeks. I am started the Asthalin 100 mcg 2 puffs daily from 01-01-2017 along with when there is cough in between the doses of Seroflo 125 mcg. But still whenever I come in contact with cold air the cough started. One more thing I want to mention that I am working in DAV School, Koyla Nagar as a Lab attd. At Chemistry Lab.

I am suggesting you homoeopathic medicine. Take Kali Bich 30 3 doses at the interval of 1 hour for a day and then report after 1 week. Ideally it will be more advisable to consult properly. So that best medicine can be selected.

Dear user. I can understand. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

I have cough for last 4 months. I have taken a lot of medicine but could not get well. What should I do now?

General Physician, Mumbai
Dear lybrate user, as you have been suffering for 4 months inspite of taking medication, there is no point of giving empirical advice. You should visit a doctor as your chest would need to be examined as well as a culture-sensitivity test for your sputum. Other than this a detailed history as well as your current status details are required, the doctor may ask for additional investigations. Hence do not waste time and seek medical consultation at the earliest. Meanwhile try staying away from dust and do warm salt water gargles 3-4 times a day. Get well soon!

I am suffering fr9m dry cough to the last two wiks and 8 have chest pain whenever cough hard can you suggest what should be done?

General Physician, Mumbai
Dear lybrateuser, - Do warm salt water gargles three times a day - do steam inhalation twice a day - avoid spicy, sour & all cold fluids & refrigerated foods, have more of warm fluids tea, coffee milk & soup - mix 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric powder in a cup of warm milk & have it twice a day - take tablet levocetrizine, 10 mg, 1 tablet daily in the evening - take syrup Benadryl, 2 teaspoonful three times a day - avoid dust, smoke & sprays - have 7-8, glasses of water for proper hydration - do absolute eosinophilic count, x- ray chest to rule out any other problem.
