Have you noticed prolonged bleeding after cuts? gums bleeding? skin changes? rash patch, does your child bruise easily or get red spots? if the answers are no to the above questions then it might be due to seasonal rhinitis. When ever he has such episodes put him on lying down position, put cold ice pack on nose. Tell him not to do nose picking.

Snoring occurs due to resistance to the airway that may be due to local factors like enalarged tonsil, adenoids, fatty neck, bulky tongue. Now a days many modalities are available to find out the underlying cause and treatment of snoring like laser, coblation etc. So consult an ent specialist for this. Do steam inhalation and use nasivion nasal drops 2-2-2-2 for 2 weeks. U will feel better.

Hi. One thing you should understand is that snoring is because of many reasons including. Lack of physical activity, obesity, short neck, problems in the airway like dns, flabby soft palate, thick tongue base etc. You need to undergo sleep study analysis and that will tell us more about the problem. Some tips like not to sleep on the back as the tongue falls backwards obstructing the airway. Not have food full stomach in the night and minimum 2 hours gap between food and sleep. Good physical activity. Like playing sports or exercise. Kindly see ent specialist for further checkup.

I am 34 old and am suffering from breathing problem before two years I had went to surgery for sinus I feel good after that but again problem is coming.

Sinusitis and breathing problem are not acute complaints like common cold or fever. So there is chance of recurrence even after surgery or inhalers. Homoeoapthic approach is to treat the cause as you it is altered immunity which produces any disease. So this altered immunity has to be corrected with a homoeopathic medicine selected after studying your genetic make up on consultation.
