Brief Answer: Steam inhalation Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query, I suspect you have a sensitive nasal mucosa, I suggest you to take steam inhalation with eucalyptus in it atleast twice daily.This will soothen the nasal mucosa and make it less irritative to the dust avoiding cold and sneezes. Do wear a Lumbosacral belt to get rid of the back pain. Apply Diclofenal gel whenever the pain is too severe. Regards,

Brief Answer: MRI scan Detailed Answer: Hi, Back pain of such a long duration has to be studied well. Do get an MRI scan of the back done to determine the cause and plan a suitable management. Yes, wearing the LS belt would help but the outcome of the same depends on the type of defect in the spine. Regards,
