ENT stands for ear, nose, and throat diseases.
You may need to see an ear, nose, and throat doctor if you have:
- ear disorder hearing impairment
- ear infections
- disorders that affect balance
- tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
- pain in your ear. ENT specialists can also treat
- congenital disorders of the ear (disorders you were born with)
Depending on the reason for the visit, the ENT will perform a physical and visual examination. This may include looking in your ears, your nose, and your throat through various instruments. Your neck, throat, cheekbones, and other areas of your face and head may be palpated.
Ear, nose, and throat infections are often caused by the same kinds of bacteria and viruses. However, the symptoms can be different depending on where the infection is located: Ear infections can cause earache, wax or discharge, hearing loss, and balance problems.
ENTs and Allergists commonly work together to treat conditions where allergies are causing problems in the ears, nose, sinuses, and throat regions. These are the areas that ENT can handle in a better way.
Yes! An ear infection can affect your throat also.
To look at the sinuses, an ENT uses a thin tube with a camera and a light called an endoscope. The endoscope is directed into your sinuses, which allows an ENT doctor to see images of an infection.
When preparing for a head or neck ultrasound, you can eat and drink normally. You should also take any prescribed medications as you normally do. There is absolutely no restriction on that.
Middle ear infections (otitis media) can develop as a complication of non-allergic rhinitis. Rhinitis can cause a problem with the eustachian tube at the back of the nose. If this tube does not function properly, then fluid may accumulate in the middle ear (behind the eardrum) and become infected.
Excess fluid in your ear can cause an ear infection by clogging up the Eustachian tube. It is observed that an unusual influx of mucus can also irritate your throat, causing soreness or coughing.
