Brief Answer: Add Levofloxacin Detailed Answer: Hi Mam, I have gone through your query and medical history. I personally advised to take 1. Add Levofloxacin with your antibiotic azithromycin. 2. Nasal decongestant with systemic decongestant. 3. Nasal irrigation with saline. 4. Steam inhalation with karvol plus 5 times a day. 5. Mild pain killer. Consult your ENT specialist as early as posssible. If you have any doubt, I will be available for your query. Wish you good health
