Hi,

Thanks for posting your query.

A dark ring over the external surface on the bridge of the nose does not necessarily mean a sinus infection. The blocked nose can be due to sinusitis or rhinitis.

Simple measures like steam inhalation with Karvol plus nasocaps, thrice a day, will help you.

Is it possible for you to send across a picture of the lesion over the nose? You have a feature to upload the reports / image by yourself at the right side of the query page, please utilize that so that I can answer your queries better.

Please consider taking Tab. Zyrtec 10mg at bedtime for next 2 days. It is available over the counter in US.

You should be fine soon.

Awaiting your response.

Regards,
