Extreme dry mouth, throat, nose and eyes. What can I do? I just was diagnosed with Sjogren's Syndrome. I think this may be the reason for everything dryng up. The most disconcerting thing is my dry mouth and throat. My vocal cords are constantly burning; it even hurts to talk. Foods, toothpaste, spices, etc. And even plain water burns my vocal chords.

My father had tb of larynx with primary focal point in lungs last year for which he took medication for 6 months. His sputum test showed negative afb. We assumed he recovered. However, he never gained weigh again after that, and in fact, he lost further weight. On biopsy of enlarged adrenal gland seen in us, the report showed tb of adrenal gland. Now he has again started taking his old tb medication. Can I know how do we go further about it. Will he be fine taking the same medication again? how do we know if the medication is still working?

Was u/s done at first treatment also. If tb of lung/larynx was cured by previous treatment tb of adrenal should also be cured. Any other symtoms excepy wt loss. Get biopsy slide examined from second pathologist. If tb of adrenal only now then by repeat u/s and reduction in tb symtoms. Treatment has to continued for one to one and half year, as it appear to be haematogenous tb.

My ears were dumped due to cold for two days. What it is the solution for. This scenario.
This is due collapse of eustachian tube which connects ear from nose, repeated nose infection causes this tube blocked, this leads to blocking of the ears, get one consultation from ear consultant

Do prevent a sore throat infection, a sore throat (pharyngitis) is normally a symptom of a bacterial or viral infection, such as the common cold. In around a third of cases, no cause for the sore throat can be found. If you have a sore throat, you may also have: swollen tonsils (tonsillitis) fever enlarged and tender glands in your neck discomfort when swallowing I am a general physician who will prescribe you an appropriate treatment plan for your case, do reply back for private consultation.

This could be because of some bone being bent inside your nose, some swelling or a polyp in the nose. This will need further evaluation. However, it should be easy to treat once the cause is established. Regards

The noise of snoring is very loud some times and it disturbs all family members. Please advice what shall I do to control my snoring I would like to have permanent solution pleas help and advice.

MBBS
General Physician,
Snoring in some people are common phenomenon nothing wrong in it. Sometimes due deviated nasal septum of nose associated with nasal polyp may cause snoring. Do warm saline gargle regularly. Have homemade freshly prepared lemon juice which is rich in vitamin c thereby increasing your body autoimmune system which prevents infection. Go for morning walk followed by free hand exercises. Have plenty of water by mouth. Else you can consult y ent specialist.

Hello- nose bleed at this age might be due to high bp or due to over consumption of spicy diet and alcohol. >try this ayurvedic treatment for quick relief- 1. Use vasa leaves or doob leaves fresh juice and use a nasal drop to stop bleed immediately. 2. Use gulakanda 1 tsp twice. 3. Use mukta vati 1 tab twice.
