Suggest treatment for cold - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
initially it was running nose
I assumed it to be viral & took medication as suggested by the chemist like SumoCold, ChestonCold & some antibiotics.
Running nose stopped but the cold is not getting any better.
Currently my ears are jammed & feeling weird sensation on the left part of head, starting from left nose, left eye, forehead & left back side of head along with body pain & weakness.
Are you running fever?
no fever as of now
May I know your age?
its 26 doctor
Yes, ear ache is there & hearing is lowered as compared
Let me brief you.
The symptoms you describe suggest ongoing inflammation.
Ear, nose and throat are connected via eustachian tube.
You need to perform steam inhalation three times a day. Continue sumocold as you have been taking for few days more.
In addition, I also recommend that you chew gums frequently to drain secretions from ear out.
If things don't improve or if you develop more pain and fever
I missed one thing doctor
you need to visit an ENT surgeon for evaluation.
last night while having dinner, suddenly I felt some fluid sensation near to my eye & nose junction & soon after some water drained out through nose
Steam inhalation and sumocold would help with it.
The measures I suggested are for symptom relief alone.
thanks for the help
Since you have already used antibiotic
It may be masking an underlying bacterial infection.
ChestonCold works the same as Sumo cold?
So without a physicial examination and tests we cannot determine the type of infection.
Avoid taking antibiotics without talking to a doctor in future.
I would prefer sumocold since it has some pain relief benefits.
thanks for your time
Try these measures along with steam inhalation for couple of days.
Steam should be taken 3-4 times aday.
See the doctor if it doesn't help.
Do you have any more questions?
no doctor, that will be all
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
