Detailed Answer:

Thank you for your query.

1. The pain that you get when you take a deep breath is most likely to be a musculoskeletal muscle pain. It will respond to rest, hot fomentation and routine anti-inflammatory painkillers if necessary.

2. Your voice will sound deep if you have sinusitis or nasal allergy. Sinusitis affects the resonance of the voice. Get an ENT check-up done for further evaluation and treatment.

I hope that I have answered your questions and if you have any more questions I will be available to answer them.

Hello doctor, I have a history of nasal allergy and recently had a severe left ear ache 3 days ago. The doc diagnosed it to be a rupture in my eardrum. There was some sort of brownish discharge which he cleaned out vacuum suction and then presribed me the below; 1) Ceftum tablets 0-0-1 2) Diclomol tablets 1-0-1 3) Fexy tablets 0-0-1 4) Flutiflo nasal spray 1-0-1 He then mentioned that there was strictly no use of any kind of ear drops needed or to be used. Almost an hour after the suction, there was a sort of light yellowish discharge mixed with a little blood from my ear which is still on. When consulted today, the doctor has advised me to use Zanocin ear drops. Could you pls advise whether my treatment is on the right track?

Hi, my son 5 years old has been complaining of blocked ears for 3 weeks now. Brought him to his paeditrician and was told that this is caused by the fluid/mucus stuck in his ears. My son has nasal allergy as well. He started to complain headache these few days. Went to the dr. again yesterday, this time around i was told that there were some build up of ear wax in his ears and the headache most likely is caused by the blocked ears. He used to complain of blocked ears during or when he is in the bed, lying down position. kindly let me know what to do in order to help with his blocked ear and headache? Thanks dr.
