After coming in contact with an allergen, our body releases a natural chemical known as histamine. This chemical has a job of defending from allergen causing further symptoms like running nose, sneezing and itchy eyes.

Allergic rhinitis is broadly categorized into two types-seasonal and perennial. The seasonal one takes place especially during spring in response to outdoor allergens like pollen. Perennial allergies occur the year round typically in response to indoor substances like dust or animal dander.

There are few other aspects that can worsen allergic rhinitis;

  • Smoking
  • Chemicals
  • Cold temperature
  • Humidity

Hearing loss takes place with growing age and starts basically after the early 50s. It is broadly charectorized into three types;

Conductive- it affects outer or middle ear.

Sensorinerual- takes place at inner ear.

Mixed – involves outer, middle and inner ear.

Hearing loss does not take place suddenly. It is in itself a gradual process that is accompanied by several signs and symptoms. Some of the major ones are listed below.

Muffling of sounds

Not hearing the sound clearly

Raising the volume of Tv or radio above the normal level.

Difficulty in distinguishing the sounds properly

Problem in understanding the words majorly against background noise

If you come across any of the above symptoms, contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Yes, hearing loss takes place as you get older but apart from that there are other reasons as well;

Harm to the inner ear

Loud noise damage the hairs on nerve cells present in cochlea that transmit the sound signals to the brain. If these hairs are damaged electrical signals are not transferred properly that further becomes a reason for hearing-loss.

Earwax

Gradual building of earwax is another major cause of hearing loss. Earwax blocks the ear canal and prohibits the conduction of sound waves. Removal of earwax restores hearing.

Infectons

Ear infections and other abnormalities like bone-growth and tumors cause hearing loss. Basically, such abnormalities occur in the outer or middle ear.

Ruptured ear drum

Also known as tympanic membrane perforation, this ear problem is caused due to sudden change in pressure, infection or poking your ear drum with a sharp object.

Other illness

Cochlea is damaged by high fever and flues too.

Heredity

Genetic reasons make you more vulnerable towards hearing loss, especially with aging.

Medications and drugs

Drugs like Viagra, antibiotic gentamicin etc can also damage your hearing. Medications taken during chemotherapy many a times affect inner ear.

Ottorhea is a kind of ear-discharge (release of any fluid) from ear. Our ears release ear wax that is oil produced naturally by our body. This ear wax prohibits the entry of dust, bacteria and other foreign materials from entering into the ear.

Apart from this, other abnormalities like ruptured ear drum lead to drainage of blood from ear. This is an indication that your ear has undergone an injury or severe infection.

Middle ear infection

Also called as ottis media, this a common reason of ear discharge. It takes place when foreign agents like viruses or bacteria enter into the middle ear. As the middle ear is positioned behind the ear drum, any infection in the middle ear can lead to accumulation of fluid in ear drum.  Over accumulation of fluid results further into ear discharge.

Trauma

Trauma to the ear canal can also result into ear discharge. Sudden increase in pressure which usually takes place while flying or scuba diving is too a major cause of ear-trauma, causing ear drum to rupture. Acoustic trauma is caused due to extremely loud noises.

Swimmer’s ear

Also called as ottis externa , it takes place due to the entry of fungus or bacteria into ear canal that further results into a severe ear infection. It usually takes place when someone spends long span in water as moisture in ear canal can damage it.

Swimmer’s ear occurs when there is a break or damage in skin of the ear canal.If you come across any abnormal ear discharge, visit your doctor as soon as possible.

Root Canal Treatment also known as RCT is the best method to treat dental issues painlessly. It aims to remove the damaged pulp from the tooth and to ensure that it is infection free. RCT is required when the infection spreads to the deeper levels of tooth. Root canal treatment is most commonly advised immediately in case of the formation of abscess where the pus-pocket gets created at the end of the roots of the tooth. If the abscess is not treated on time with Root canal treatment, then it can lead to severe effects on the health of the jawbone of the respective person.

Benefits of Root Canal Treatment

RCT is accompanied by several benefits;

Blocks the infection path

Any infection in the tooth cavity leads to tooth decay. In RCT the bacteria causing infection is eliminated that blocks the path of that infection and prohibits it from spreading further. After removal of bacteria the tooth is disinfected, cleaned and treated properly. After this, there remains no room left for bacteria to spread anymore.

Fascinating result

In RCT treatment of damaged tooth pulp is followed by a crown or dental filling. Treated tooth is covered with a tooth colored filling. This filling or crown provides that tooth an attractive appearance.

Protects your tooth

RCT restores your tooth and makes it function like any other normal tooth.

Protects the jaw bone

Teeth keep the jaw bone intact. Any missing tooth affects jaw bone adversely leading to its degeneration. That is why RCT prevents jaw bone as well.
