What Do You Recommend For Cauliflower Ear
Depends: Pinguecula are benign growths on the eye nasally or temporally to the cornea. Many are small and cause no problems. Some are larger, or growing and can cause irritation and redness of the eyes. A few may grow so far towards the center of the cornea that they threaten vision. The only treatment is surgical removal. See your ophthalmologist to evaluate these. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
?cause: Rhinorrhea may be due to viral infection, cold or exercise, dust or allergies, medicines, smoke/pollution, just to name a few things. If it's a cold, you can try Robitussin but nothing will help much but time. For allergies or non-allergic rhinitis, otc drugs like zyrtec, claritin, (loratadine) Allegra are good and for stubborn cases, ask the pharmacist for a formulation with Pseudoephedrine (with a "d" label). ...Read more
Not for home Rx: See your dentist! treatment includes antibiotic, drainage if there is an abscess, root canal if the nerve is involved, extraction if necessary. Infection of the teeth is serious, painful, and can lead to much more serious infection (remember, your teeth are sitting quite close to an important structure involving thinking and memory!). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Get it treated: You need to get it treated. The traditional method is antibiotics, but if you can get the inner ear to drain, then it will resolve on its own in most cases. This can be done with decongestants/nasal sprays that will reduce obstruction/inflammation surrounding the tube that connects the middle ear to the nose. If it is truly infected, it's worth getting a doctor to check it out. ...Read more
Tough problem: Sometimes it is as simple as too much wax in the ears, so an easy first step is to see your pcp to get your ears examined. Assuming you are wax free, it is worth a visit to an ear nose and throat doctor and/or audiologist to see if you have any hearing loss. Hearing loss is the most common cause of tinnitus- basically- the background noise is now audible rather than drowned out by normal hearing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See a doctor: You need an exam to tell if your ear canal is blocked (I.e., with wax) or if your Eustachian tube is blocked causing fullness of your middle ear. Irrigation/flushing can take care of wax, but you may need oral nasal decongestants, a nasal steroid, an antibiotic, or just time if it's your middle ear that's the culprit. Good luck! ...Read more
Treat symptoms: Infectious mononucleosis is a viral infection that commonly causes sore throat, swollen lymph nodes and other symptoms. The main treatments are hydration and symptomatic care. Often times the liver and spleen are swollen and painful so contact sports should be avoided for the duration of the illness. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Treatments can vary: Bunions are progressive, structural deformities. They only get worse, they don't get better. You can improve the symptoms with better shoes, but you can't improve the deformity. As my rule of thumb: if the deformity bothers you on a regular basis or is limiting your activity, then surgery is an option to consider. See your foot specialist for evaluation and treatment discussion. Dr l. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Sinusitis: Most sinus infections are viral and should be treated with over the counter decongestants and sinus rinses. If you have sinus pressure, thick nasal discharge, +/- fever for longer than 10 days, I recommend seeing a healthcare provider. If your resistance is low or you have recurrent sinus infections, you may have contracted a bacterial infection as well requiring antibiotics. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
