Hi. I understand your concerns. Sinusitis can also be due to allergy. Consult a pulmonologist /allergist for the same. You will benefit from intranasal corticosteroids and anti allergy medicines. Also try steam inhalation and saline nasal douche Thanks.

I am 25 yeard old male. When ever I get cold, throat starts paining. I think this is not a normal cold pain because it gets severe and I also find it difficult to drink or eat or even sleep. Salt water gargles are too not helpful. When ever I am not having cold, I feel constant awkward irritation in throat. And I am suffering from this pain and irritation for 6-7 years.

I am suffering frm nose bleeding during summer, is there any cure to stop bleeding. Please suggest me what should I do to stop bleeding?

MS - ENT, MBBS
ENT Specialist, Hyderabad
Dear lybrate-user. Bleeding from nose in summer is a common problem. It may be due to drying of lining mucosa of nose. And later crust formation. Resulting irritation forces us to nose picking leading to bleeding. Avoid going outdoors in hot weather drink plenty of water you can use nasoclear nasal drops 4 drops in each nostrils 5 to 6 times per day. To rule out remote possibility of bleeding disorders get coagulation profile done.

I had anal fissure, it used to pain during excretion but I had been using pilex creme on prescription from doctor. It's probably has been fixed. But now I've got a lot of itching in and around the anus, more in the perineal raphe area. It's also red. It becomes difficult to bend sometimes. What is it? Can you please suggest some home remedies or precautions. I don't wanna undergo anymore surgeries. I had pilonidal sinus surgery in May this year.

As you have mentioned that you got surgery for pilonidal sinus this shows that you have more hair then normal. I simply suggest you to keep cleanliness of area by washing with soap and water and apply some moisturiser or home remedies coconut oil. Another suggestion is to keep your stool soft by taking three full meals which has lot of veg. Fruits and plenty of water and if needed add stool softener to it. i hope you will improve.

Cotton Buds - Why You Must Not Use Them?

MBBS
General Physician, Malappuram
Cotton Buds - Why You Must Not Use Them?

Cotton swabs or cotton buds, are commonly used in our daily lifestyle. Many people use it for various purposes, such as make-up, bacterial culture, and most commonly for extracting wax and debris from the ear. Even though they are sometimes handy in our busy schedule, they usually cause much more harm than benefits.

How are they misused?
Cotton buds are toothpick like pieces made of wood, plastic, or rolled paper, which have cotton stuck at both ends with a roundish edge. It came into existence during the 1920s for a safe purpose of ear cleaning by Leo Gerstenzang, when he saw his wife cleaning their baby’s ear with a toothpick. And, til now they are used by the general population for ear cleaning, but these hardly remove the outer debris which is stuck near the outer edges. Impressing it inside the ear canal only does further damage, by forcing the inner wax further inside. Sometimes extensive force also causes damage to the ear drums.

How does it cause the damage?
Applying a tool like the cotton bud inside the ear with hands usually creates a force that impresses upon the eardrum, also accumulating the surrounding earwax to that area, resulting in impaction of the wax. The force applied most often, if not always, causes a damage to the ear drums, which might cause severe pain, also leading to leakage, causing improper balance, deafness, and certain similar abnormalities.

Alternative measures
Although we are worried about cleaning our ears, it doesn’t really require our notice, since our usual showers allow an adequate quantity of water to enter the ears and clean the accumulated debris automatically. The structure, in which our ear canal is designed, is usually naturally assisting in cleaning up the unusual wax around the ear.

If there is an uncontrollable build up of earwax that is not cleaned off normally, you can always consult an ENT or any general physician and get it cleaned under medical surveillance, which is best advised.
Doctors and medical practitioners all around the world have been trying to spread the message of preventing the use of cotton buds for ear cleaning. It is important that the message reach the greater part of the population. Spread it to your family, your closest friends, their friends, and as further, you can reach!

Hi Doctors, My nose will be blocked all 365 days. Either left nose or right nose. Sometimes both. have dust allergy also. I will also get cold easily. most of the time I breath through my mouth. Will there be any side effect of breathing through mouth? I showed to ent in one good hospital. he said I have dns (deviated nose spectral). He didn't take xray just saw the nose and immediate said dns. Also, he said he can operate it. 100% assurance can't give tat after the surgery I will be able to breathe easily. Don't know whether to trust this doc. My parents are objecting me taking this surgery. They are suggesting homeopathy. Shall I go for the surgery? PS: I have breathing problem since my childhood

Hello Akshay. As per your history it appears that you are having a deviated nasal septum as a cause of persistent nasal obstruction. Since you are also having allergic rhinitis , coexisting sinus pathology and other nasal conditions should be ruled out (and treated ,) by clinical history , examination and appropriate radiological examination , before going for surgery. Constant mouth breathing leads to dryness of the throat and also predisposes an individual to recurrent throat infections.

It could be due to ear infection because of entry of water during swimming. Take a course of antibiotic and put ear drop after consulting doctor. Plug your ear while swimming.
