Hi, I think it is most important to find out what is the cause of recurrent nosebleeds first as sometimes there may be more worrying conditions like underlying bleeding disorders or sinister growths at the back of the nose which bleed easily. However luckily most of the time, ...

Hi Natalie, Thanks for your question about nosebleeds. We usually offer nasal cautery when patients suffer from recurrent nosebleeds which originate from the superficial blood vessels at the front part of the nose. It is simple, painless and quick to do in the clinic. We u...

Hi Thanks for telling me about your thyroglossal cyst. This is an abnormal type of cyst which is formed from the development of the thyroid gland itself. Although most are usually benign in nature, and may not necessarily cause you any trouble, we may advise surgery to remove the thyroglossal cyst...

Dear Marcus, A lump in throat sensation isn’t “normal” and should be thoroughly checked out with a nasal endoscopy examination. It sounds like you may already have had this done in the past if you have been told about an “inward facing epiglottis”. We do see many people who present with similar...

Hi Dipak, After a tonsillectomy, the main issues are usually to do with pain and rarely bleeding due to secondary infection of the tonsillectomy area. My patients are usually seen 1 week and then about a mth postop by which time the vast majority are actually fully recovered. Aft...

Dear Mei Ling, Thanks for the D2D. Snoring in children is quite common but in about 10% of children who snore, this may be a sign of underlying airway obstruction leading to problems with sleep-related breathing or obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA in children is mostly c...

Hi Emma, Thanks for the D2D. It may not always be easy to tell if your child might be suffering from an ear infection, especially if they aren’t able to speak properly yet. But the parents of my kiddie patients with ear infections have told me that they were worried abou...
Consult Doctor
Dear Chunmei, Thanks for the D2D. When you say your son was diagnosed with a middle ear infection, this usually means that he had an infection of his eardrum with possibly some infected fluid trapped behind. If a short course of antibiotics doesn’t help, then the usual trea...
Consult Doctor
Hi Ann, thanks for the D2D. Whether your child is at risk of permanent loss of hearing with recurrent ear infections, really depends on what part of his ear keeps on becoming infected. If it is the outer ear canal which becomes infected, then any swelling of the skin will tempora...

Hi Coco, Thanks for the D2D. Swimming to prevent swimmer’s ear! Swimmer’s ear occurs when water enters the ear canal and irritates the delicate ear skin, giving rise to an ear infection (otitis externa). This can be quite painful and uncomfortable as the ear may ...

Hi Ellen, thanks for the D2D. You don’t actually have to do anything to get rid of the earwax in your son’s ears. Earwax contains protective natural oils to moisturize the delicate skin of the ear canal. So it is all right to have some earwax in your son’s ears....

Dear Stephanie, From your photo, that white lump on your left tonsil looks like a mucous cyst (collection of trapped secretions from your tonsil glands). It may also be a tonsil stone. Both these conditions are commonly seen in people who suffer recurrent episodes of tonsil infec...

Dear cjw, Oh dear, the inflamed cyst on your mum’s neck looks rather painful! The simple answer is unfortunately, there is no non-surgical method to treat these cysts. They are skin cysts which are called sebaceous cysts. They originate from skin glands which secrete se...

Dear Banerjee, Those little bumps all over the back of your throat are actually lymphoid follicles which are part of the immune system. “Lymph glands” are probably what some people would call them. Their function is to drain the fluid from the throat and nose and t...

Dear Fatma, In your photos, there appears to be a small swelling on your right tonsil. It looks like it is probably benign although the only definitive way to tell for sure is to remove it and send it off for analysis. This is even more important if you smoke. HPV (Human Papi...

Dear Cottagehut, I looked closely at your photo but I wonder which "patch" you're referring to? There is a very tiny whitish speck just inside the opening of the ear which really looks just like a bit of flaky dy skin, probably nothing to worry about. However, deeper in the...
