No.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into your problem I would suggest you that you have tried all the available treatments . Surgery for clean up of sinuses is the best bet ever .

I can understand your concern but I will advise you to ask your doctor to take up breathing exercises and practise yoga . Breathing exercises lead to circulation of air in the sinuses thus cleaning them up .

She should also avoid going to damp moist places and avoid wooden areas as it will lead to triggers . Also ask your treating doctor for pneumococcal and H. influenzae vaccination .

Take care.

Wish your daughter a good health .

Dr. Shruti
