Question- I am about 70 years old. I want to buy machine for ear. What are the things to be kept in mind while buying a machine? give advice?
Answer- Avoid buying hearing aids directly from the shop. Sometimes buying a machine of more or less power than needed can cause damage. Before buying, check with the doctor to find out how many decibels you have lost. Only then decide which machine to take. Get the machine from shops where it can be upgraded if needed or else fulfill its warranty. There the technician should also be a degree holder so that he can set up properly.

Answer- It is possible that your father has some neurological problem. The symptoms seem to be the same. Sometimes the water coming from the nose also comes due to the paralysis of the palate.
