A 21-year-old member asked:

is my dizziness the result of ear infections or dental infections?

Probably not.: Many (most?) cases of dizziness in adults are not related to infection. As an ENT doctor, i often see dizzy patients that have been misdiagnosed elsewhere with ear infections (otitis media). With that said, ear infections and some sinus infections can indeed cause dizziness; dental infections should not cause dizziness. The best way to be sure is to see an ENT doctor.

Ear Infection : Most likely due to an inner ear problem. See an ENT specialist for evaluation.
Dr. Arnold Malerman
Orthodontics 53 years experience
Perhaps neither: Sometimes infected upper teeth can cause sinus infection, but this is rarely seen as cause of dizziness. Please make an appointment with an ear/nose/throat specialist. That's the best place to start to track down cause of dizziness.

Peristomal wound: When i see a patient who has difficulties with peristomal wound or pain, i generally try to ascertain cause. Usually, if there is no underlying pathology, the skin is irritated by the adhesive. Using a hydrocolloid dressing beneath the adhesive may reduce the difficulties.
A member asked:

Thick nasal mucus - I have to blow my nose very hard to get the plug feeling out, it is commonly very thick, white (not clear). Should I be concern?

Thick nasal mucus: Thick nasal mucus can be related to sinusitis, but not necessarily. If you have chronic allergies or recurrent infections you should consult a doctor who can identify if there is an opportunity to improve nasal inflammation with sprays or treat infection with antibiotics. You may benefit from good nasal hygiene as well which involves using salt water rinses to clear mucus and allergens.
