Dear Concerned.,
Thanks for writing to us.
You may be having exacerbations and remissions of Chronic sinusitis due to repeated infections and also aggravated by your smoking habit.Do you also have loss of weight/ loss of weight and evening rise in temperature?
Pls investigate with routine Blood counts/blood chemistry/urinalysis/sputum for microscopy and routine/AFB Test for Sputum /PAP Smear test of Sputum sample.
In addition Radiologiocal Tests for Paranasal Sinuses such as X-Ray PNS and CT as required.
Consult an ENT Surgeon for endoscopic lavage of the sample and analysis for its pathology for a definitive diagnosis and institution of therapy.
Taking empirical treatment without proper investigations will only lead to postponement of definitive diagnosis. So please follow the above protocol.
Wishing you a quick recovery.,
Best Regards.,
Dr Lt Cdr ASN Bhushan,

Hi cheachea ! Don't you think you need check up. You are saying blood and bad smell. just smoke less, take mouth wash. Take warm water put menthol drop in it and inhale. Use nasal drop for infection. If all effort will be useless then consult the medic . Bye.
