CHRONIC SINUSITIS: I had an operation for chronic sinusitis about 3 weeks ago..I had antibiotics and was also told to flush my sinuses with SALEX SSR. However I recently started smelling ammonia ... and have a slight burning sensation on top of my head (just above the hearline). Should I seek medical help or am I healing?
