Sinus pain, thick nasal discharge, foul odor from nose. Taking antibiotics, no relief. Treatment?
My fiance has had a persistent sinus infection since early June. He was initially prescribed a 10 day course of antibiotics and experienced some relief before finishing the course and becoming infected anew. He then took a three week script with no relief and is now on another 10 day course. He continues to experience intense sinus pain, excessive, thick nasal discharge and most notably a self-perceived AND noticeable to others, foul odor eminating from nose . It is reminiscent of hospitals or nursing homes. He works in a very dirty environment-a warehouse that tests auto parts, no air conditioning. What could this be?
hi, it is always better to take a local decongetant nose drops like otrivin along with the antibiotics. it helps to keep the sinuses open. if there is no relef then probably he may require surgery. regards, Dr Rajkishori Godhi.
