MYTHS & FACTS
Myth- Nasal bleeds can be stopped by using icepack or tilting your neck backwards
Fact- Tilting your neck backwards will only take the blood to the back of throat which will cause swallowing of blood and it may lead to breathing issue. In this condition, you should pinch your nose gently and bend your head facing the ground keeping your mouth open. Keep it for 5-10 minutes and try squeezing gently. If bleeding doesn’t stops, seek your ENT doctor immediately.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU IGNORE COMMON ENT SYMPTOMS ?
There are certain serious Ear, Nose and Throat conditions which you should never neglect so that they can get the care more quickly.
Any hearing loss
Ringing or balance problem
Pain and pressure in your sinuses
Antibiotics failing to treat any chronic sore throat or infection
