    Causes of ENT Disorder

    ENT disorders can be divided into fungal, bacterial and viral. In addition to this environmental causes are also important as they increase the risk of infection.

    Fungal:
    Fungal infections can spread at an alarming rate as fungus reproduces very quickly. ENT fungal infections need immediate attention as the slightest delay in medication can have severe and lasting repercussions.


    Bacterial:
    Bacterial infections are common in areas that are bruised or damaged in some way. Bacterial infections are generally localized and therefore a bacterial throat infection will hurt on one specific side.


    Viral:
    Viral infections are generally systemic which means that they affect more than one body part or body system at a time. These infections cannot be cured with antibiotics.


    Environmental:
    Environmental causes such as continuous dampness can trigger an infection. This is very often seen in cases of swimmers who suffer from a ear infection commonly known as swimmer’s ear. Cleaning the insides of your ear with water on a regular basis too can cause this infection.

    Remedies for ENT Disorder

    ENT disorders are treated according to their causes and symptoms. It is important to go in for a physical examination in order to get an accurate diagnosis.

    1. A fungal or bacterial infection can be effectively treated with antimicrobial ingredients such as ginger and garlic. Garlic oil is often used to treat ear infections while ginger tea is used to treat throat infections.


    2. Steam inhalation is very effective in treating nose and throat infections as it helps the body to expel the mucus that contains these pathogens. Eucalyptus oil is often added to the steaming water as it helps to soothe inflammation and promote mucous expulsion.


    3. A warm salt water gargle can be used to treat throat infections as salt is a mild antiseptic. It also helps with severe congestion.
