I will take fluticasone . I also am coughing up mucous sometime with a little bright red blood. Do I need to go to urgent care or can it wait until Monday?

Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regarding frequent sinus infection, blood in mucus, blocked nose. After considering your symptoms and co-relating it with your history of illness for sinusitis it appears as secondary infection is going on.

You are advice for these basic investigations-

(a) C.T.scan of paranasal sinuses.

(b) Culture and sensitivity of nasal discharge.

(c) Blood - CBC, ESR, blood sugar (F. & P.P.), serum creatinin.

(d) Urine- Routine and microscopic.

After this thorough examination and clinical co-relation of inferences of investigatins will guide us to reach to proper diagnosis which can be accordingly managed.
