Sinusitis, nasal congestion. Inhaling steam helps. Advise? - Online Doctor Chats
Hi Doctor, Goodafternoon
How are you doing?
since when do you have this problem?
I have Sinusitis and these days I have a lot of Nasal Congestion
liquid flows from the back of my nose into my throat, I have a constant Headache and pain in the forehead
a few days back I had a discussion with Dr. XXXXXXX and her suggested me some cures and asked me to keep a check if I develop fever
since yesterday I'm experiencing mild fever
Do you have any cough as well?
Yes, a little bit.
Did the steam inhalation bring relief?
Yes a little bit.
When I inhale steam it feels better. But after a few ours I feel the congestion again
For that, firstly, you need to take steam inhalation atleast thrice a day
Its a thing which cannot be replaced as it will open up the sinuses
This thing will resolve in 4-5 days, so till then you'll need to keep taking it
Thirdly, I want you to put saline nasal drops every 5-6 hours
It comes by the name of ACOLATE SALINE or NOSAIR SALINE
Whichever one you get, buy that
You can take upto 4 tablets daily
But I dont think its required
Ok Doctor. Fever is mild, so I believe Tablet would be fine.
and I'll surely follow your instructions.
is there anything else I can help you with?
For how many days do I need take this treatment?
You'll be fine in a 3-4 days XXXXXXX
If you dont become ok, please see a physician
Thanks a lot Doctor for your time and advise.
If you dont become ok in 3-4 days that it
Bye for now
Ok. Bye Doctor and have a nice day.
