Ear, Nose & Throat

ENT deals with conditions of the ear, nose, and throat and related structures of the head and neck. Patients seek treatment from an ENT doctor for diseases of the ear, nose, throat, base of the skull, and for the surgical management of cancers and benign tumors of the head and neck.

Overview

The ears, nose and throat are important parts of your body that are used on a daily basis. 

If you have chronic ear, nose, or throat problems, it is advisable to not only see a primary care physician, but to also include an ENT doctor in the management of your disorder.

Read this post for more information on seeing an ENT doctor in Singapore.

From my experience. Highly unlikely, but not impossible. You can always try. Anyway when you do that, it makes ear syringing or microsuction easier. After applying, you should do the "tragal massage". You can google that.

Septoplasty is any surgery that modifies the bony or cartilaginous septum of the nose. This can be done during an open rhinoplasty or using a closed technique. The main steps are: 1. Access the septum either by opening the nose or incision through the mucosa. 2. Identify...

Thanks for the D2D. Snoring is not just noise. Not all who snore have sleep apnea, but snoring is a sign that you may have sleep apnea. In Singapore, a recent study found that 90% of those with already moderate to severe sleep apnea did not know that they had sleep apnea! Sleep...

Many spouses do suffer chronic fatigue themselves if they are not able to sleep due to their spouse’s snoring. Some wear ear plugs to sleep. However, it is important to remember that your husband may be snoring out an SOS for help. Snoring is not just noise, but may be a sig...

Thanks for the D2D. Snoring is due to the excessive soft tissues in the airway, including swollen sinus turbinates, deviated nose septum, swollen adenoids, a thick long floppy palate or uvula, thick side walls of the mouth, and/or a big bulky tongue. A blocked nose will cause t...

Thank you for your question. It sounds like your son has Allergic Rhinitis (sensitive nose). To find out more about Allergic Rhinitis, please read my article on Allergic Rhinitis that was published in DxD . Allergic Rhinitis in children often results in a blocked nose and mouth ...
20 Dec 2018
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 caused by enlarged...

Hello, Thanks for the D2D. Absolutely. You are a fairly young gentleman to have high blood pressure (hypertension). This could be also be due to a strong family history of hypertension, a high salt diet and certainly aggravated by Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Scientific studies ha...
6 Nov 2018
Hello, Thanks for the D2D. Yes. It is likely that he might have Obstructive Sleep Apnea. He seems like he has stoppages in breathing at night and he might have nose congestion which explains his mouth opening during sleep. Because of the stoppages in breathing at night, his b...

thanks for the D2D. It is not always easy to tell the difference between a common cold and sinusitis. But from experience with my paediatric patients, these are typically the symptoms to watch out for: if the cold lasts an unusually long time such as more than 10 days...
