Frequently asked questions
Below I answer the most frequently asked questions about ear, nose and throat diseases.
Doctors of choice do not have a contract with the statutory health insurance companies. This means that you cannot use the services with the e-card and that each examination and treatment is billed directly to the doctor.
By submitting the fee note to your statutory health insurance company, a part of the fee paid will be reimbursed. I would be happy to support you in my practice with the submission of your fee notes!
In normal cases, such as when you have a cold, a sore throat is annoying but not dangerous. If the symptoms do not subside significantly after 2-3 days, or are accompanied by a high fever and other symptoms, a visit to the ENT doctor is advisable. Chronic or recurring sore throats or difficulty swallowing should definitely be medically clarified!
If a swelling in the neck persists for more than 3 – 5 days, an assessment in an ENT practice is highly recommended.
Since the saliva produced by the submandibular gland is more viscous, this gland is most commonly affected by salivary stones.
In any case, an assessment by an ENT doctor is recommended in order to find out the cause of the obstructed nasal breathing and to be able to treat it specifically! A specialist in ear, nose and throat diseases should be consulted, especially if the symptoms persist for a long time.
In principle, a distinction is made between acute and chronic sinusitis (sinusitis).
Acute bacterial rhinosinusitis usually occurs as a superinfection from a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract. Illnesses are referred to as chronic sinusitis if they last longer than 12 weeks.
Therapeutically, the first attempt is always to alleviate the symptoms with conservative therapy methods. If this does not succeed, surgery is often the therapy method of choice for chronic sinusitis.
The most common causes of pain in the ears include ear canal infections and middle ear infections. Fluid behind the eardrum, the so-called tympanic effusion, can also cause earache.
As part of the ENT assessment, both ears are inspected with a microscope, the so-called ear microscopy.
The healing process is problem-free with professional treatment by an ENT doctor and heals without consequences.
Often, as a result of minor injuries caused by improper cleaning of the ears (e.g. ears should not be cleaned with cotton swabs), bacteria penetrate the skin, which then causes inflammation.
Generally, such an inflammation heals quickly with symptomatic (expectorant preparations, decongestant nose drops, pain-relieving medication) therapy. Only rarely is the administration of an antibiotic necessary.
In rare cases, however, the bacteria can spread from the middle ear to the inner ear. With such an otitis media, which is then described as toxic, damage to the inner ear can then occur. This may result in permanent hearing loss, dizziness or tinnitus.
Jaw joint misalignments, cervical spine problems and acute or chronic middle ear infections can also be the cause of ringing in the ears. Tinnitus can also develop as part of dizziness, such as Menière’s disease or Lyme disease. In a number of patients, however, neither a cause nor a trigger can be identified.
Therapy varies from case to case. Unfortunately, there are no medications that eliminate long-standing tinnitus.
