    2 small holes ( deformation) in roof of mouth please help! Bad taste and smell with lots of drainage!

    I am posting this because I have run out of options. I have experienced post nasal drainage longer than I can remember and I have always had a suspicion that this was the because of my bad breath. Later, after seeing an ENT to remove my swollen adenoids due frequent nasal infections, they discovered two small holes in the roof of my mouth. I was told these holes should have closed at birth but for some reason they did not. The physician seemed to brush it off like it was nothing at the time but did....

    Treatment for sinus congestion

    I have been dealing from sinus congestion for a few days now. It all started last Saturday with my voice being hoarse but it went away.

    Uncommon Issue: Clicking with apparent connection to engagement of the soft palate, ear popping when swallowing

    7 months ago or so, I noticed a certain clicking noise that seemed to be coming from my nasopharynx area when I said certain words. "Favor," "cookie," and "papa" to name a few. Although this clicking is not particularly noticeable to others, it is indeed audible if they know to be listening for it or if we are in a quiet space. It is very audible to myself and, more importantly, very audible to a microphone. As an aspiring voice actor, this issue has caused me much consternation....

    Second opinion

    My son has a high fever, treated with Tylenol it went down to 100 degrees, a red, sore throat and red patches inside his mouth. He also has a rash with tiny blisters that is all over but more pronounced around his mouth,on the backs of his hands, tops of his feet and around his rear. He also has diarrhea. His doctor examined him today and although the test came back negative for strep she determined that it was still the most likely cause. Could he have strep and something else? Like hand, foot and....

    The Back Of My Mouth Is Asymmetrical

    The part of the back of my mouth that's below my uvula is not symmetrical. One flap is smaller than the other and appears to be attached to the back and the other is larger and definitely is not attached. I'm wondering whether or not this is normal, and also if this has anything to do with the fact that I had my tonsils removed about eight years ago.

    Plugged ears

    My ears have been plugged for 5 months with occasional relief by laying flat on my back or with my head between my knees. I have had 2 rounds of prednisone, and use 2 different nasal decongestant sprays. Doctor is recommending either ear tubes or a Balloon Stretching of the Eustachian tube. Which has a better success rate?
