Home Ear, Nose and Throat

Ear, Nose and Throat

The ears, nose and throat make up the upper respiratory system and share similar mucous membrane linings. Therefore, they can develop similar infections. Symptoms in one area of the upper respiratory system can be caused by ailments in other parts. Some common ear, nose and throat conditions are: allergies, infections, swimmer’s ear, sinusitis, tonsillitis, deviated septum, sleep apnea and reflux.

  • Sore throat
  • Drainage
  • Coughing and sneezing
  • Ear pain and pressure
  • Snoring
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Hearing loss
  • Watery and itchy eyes


Treatments are determined by the condition that’s diagnosed. Many ear, nose and throat infections are treated with antibiotics. Other ailments, such as a deviated septum or tonsillitis, can be treated with surgery. Additionally, allergies and drainage are controlled with allergy medications and steroidal nose sprays.
