ENT Signs and Symptoms
- Sore throat
- Runny nose
- Ear pain
- Difficult breathing
We all know the start of spring is also the start of allergy season. With the blooming of flowers, trees, and other plants, pollen and spores begin to fill the air. Breathing in the newly supplied allergens in the air could cause allergic rhinitis. This could cause symptoms such as runny/stuffy nose, uncomfortable sensations in the inner ear, and facial itching. These symptoms may sometimes be too powerful for over-the-counter items. In this case, your doctor may prescribe medication for you to pick up at your preferred pharmacy.
Of course, allergy season is not the only time of the year where we may experience allergic reactions. Perennial allergies can be caused by things we are around at all times of the year. This can include hair from our beloved pets, dust mites, and even mold or fungal spores. Your doctor and pharmacist can help you find relief from symptoms and live more comfortably in your own home.
A tonsillectomy is the procedure used to remove tonsils. Your tonsils are located in the back of the mouth and serve to prevent bacteria and viruses from entering our body through the mouth/throat. Infected tonsils can cause sore throat, enlarged tonsils, and even trouble breathing when asleep. If your tonsils are too frequently infected, you may require a tonsillectomy. Recover time after this surgery can take anywhere from 10 days to 2 weeks! Your local compounding pharmacy has great solutions to help reduce the pain during this recovery period.
Allergies and foreign agents entering our ear can cause inflammation, irritation, and even infections. This can lead to an increasingly uncomfortable feeling in the ear and face area. Symptoms such as pain in the ear, fever, and difficulty hearing can occur. The infection can lead to build up of puss or liquid in the ear.
What Medicine Works for Ear, Nose and Throat Symptoms?
These lollipops are very popular for oral pain treatment. Tetracaine is a topical anesthetic that helps prevent pain in the mouth and throat. This is especially useful for the healing process after oral procedures such as a tonsillectomy. The lollipop form makes it extremely easy to take, especially for children who may be averse other types of medication. We keep tetracaine lollipops on hand ready to go. So you can be sure that we’ll have lollipops available right when you need them!
Budesonide is great for sinus relief. It is anti-inflammatory medication that can be applied through a nasal spray. This reduces the symptoms from ailments such as hay fever, allergies, allergic rhinitis, and nasal polyps. Budesonide can also be used in inhalers to help reduce the effects of asthma.
Mupirocin helps treat certain skin conditions caused by bacterial infections. A topical cream can be developed and applied directly to the skin. In addition to helping with skin conditions, a different mupirocin ointment can be developed specifically to kill bacteria in the nose.
