Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) Therapy

ENT Signs and Symptoms

ENT is a common medical field that deals with ear, nose, and throat ailments. Anything above the shoulders (not including the eyes, brain, and teeth) can be considered ENT.

Common symptoms seen in ENT issues include:
  • Snoring
  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose
  • Ear pain
  • Difficult breathing

These are a few symptoms, but many more can potentially be present. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and cannot find relief from over-the-counter items, seeing an ENT doctor may be a good idea.

Doctors specializing in this field can help you identify infections or other underlying issues that could pose a more severe health risk.

Here are a few illnesses commonly associated with ENT symptoms.

Allergy Season

We all know the start of spring is also the start of allergy season. Pollen and spores fill the air with the blooming of flowers, trees, and other plants.

Breathing in the newly supplied allergens in the air could cause allergic rhinitis, leading to symptoms such as:
  • Runny/stuffy nose
  • Uncomfortable sensations in the inner ear
  • Facial itching.

These symptoms may sometimes be too potent for over-the-counter items. In this case, your doctor may prescribe medication to pick up at your preferred pharmacy.

Of course, allergy season is not the only time of the year when 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
  • 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.

Tonsils are located in the back of the mouth, preventing bacteria and viruses from entering the body through the mouth and throat. Infected tonsils can cause:
  • Sore throat
  • Enlarged tonsils
  • Trouble breathing when asleep

If your tonsils are too frequently infected, you may require a tonsillectomy. Recovery time after this surgery can take 10 days to 2 weeks!

Your local compounding pharmacy has excellent solutions to help reduce the pain during this recovery period.

Ear Infections/Inflammation

Allergies and foreign agents entering our ears can cause:
  • Inflammation
  • Irritation
  • 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 a build-up of puss or liquid in the ear.

What Medicine Works for Ear, Nose and Throat Symptoms?

The ENT field can cover a variety of illnesses in the head area of the body. But how do we treat these symptoms?

Over-the-counter products can be helpful for mild instances of symptoms.

However, when infections become more severe and difficult to treat, prescription medications can help provide the sought-after relief.

ENT Medications

Tetracaine Lollipops

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 useful for healing after oral procedures such as a tonsillectomy.

The lollipop form makes it extremely easy to take, especially for children who may be averse to other types of medication. We keep tetracaine lollipops on hand, ready to go. So you can be sure we’ll have lollipops available when you need them!


Budesonide is great for sinus relief. It is an anti-inflammatory medication that can be applied through a nasal spray.

This reduces the symptoms of:
  • Hay fever
  • Allergies
  • Allergic rhinitis
  • 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 to kill nose bacteria.​
