Nasal cycle : Is wildly asymmetric. Your blood pressure will probably be different in the two arms when measured by two people at the same time. Alternating recumbent unilateral nasal congestion is due to increased activity of a normal cycle that affects the nasal mucosa. The asymmetry is increased by changes in the lower brain controls of the autonomic (automatic)nervous system from poor diet, especially sugar. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Problems like this need to be checked by an ENT within days. Sometimes this can be serious and can lead to permanent hearing loss. Treatment may need to be started fast. Other causes could be trauma (i.e., loud noise damaging the ear). ...Read more
Can impacted wax from continuous (5 years) use of ear plugs at night result in an ear infection? And could an ear infection result in pain in the jaw and neck as well as the ear?
No: Ear wax retention does not cause a bacterial infection.It can cause discomfort, and there are many OTC products that can be used to dissolve the retained was, or you can have it removed by a physician or ENT specialist. The ear drum shares a nerve with the jaw joint and occasionally those with an otitis can have jaw pain or someone with tooth/jaw pain may have ear pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Any medication not specifically approved for use in this situation could cause hearing and other damage. ...Read more

All this takes less than 5 minutes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Ear Tubes: For most pediatric patients, we typically recommend tubes only stay in place for a couple of years. Once they've been in for 2 years, i recommend consideration for removal. For adults who have tubes, keeping the tubes in for a longer period of time is quite common and necessary. It really depends on the underlying problem and the condition of the ear. Best to discuss with an ENT doctor. ...Read more
Usually : You can swim with tubes in place in many cases. Once they fall out, unless there is a persistent hole in the ear, it should be fine to swim. Remember that most people who need tubes can't equalize their ear pressure well. This can mean that when you are deeper under water you will have a hard time clearing your ears, which can be painful. Certainly don't scuba dive unless you can clear your ears. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: There have been a couple of studies where parents applied a prescription (quinolone category) drop at bedtime in children with ear tubes who swam earlier in the day.

How long should ear tubes stay in before needing removed?My daughter has had them from 9 mos to now, age 4 yrs and they haven't fallen out.
Common to shead: Tubes often fall out after 6+ months but may stay functional & in place much longer. I see little reason to get them out unless there problems. I don't like them swimming in the lakes or ponds with tubes but home pools are generally ok. Some ent's would pull them now if you are concerned.You may want to wait until spring to bypass another respiratory season. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
