Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I had got two teeth pulled yesterday. Developed terrible sneezing. What should I do? I have tried over the counter drugs, but not helping.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Firstly, I would like to know if it is the upper back tooth which has been pulled out. If no, then there is no connection between the sneezing and it. You will be absolutely fine with home remedies. Over the counter medication will take at least three dosages to work. So, be patient enough. If yes, then we got to look for the healing of those sockets carefully. The reason being more chances of oro-antral communication. In that case please visit back your dentist to ensure it. Otherwise, start home remedies for sneezing like steam inhalation with Vicks vaporub. Drink turmeric and black pepper milk in the night before bed. This works amazingly.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
