my right jaw is paining now due to this
and I am using xylomist nasal drops but its not giving much releif

Jaw in technical terms refer to the lower part of the mouth which moves during speech and eating.
Do you mean this is the area that is paining?
Can you specify the exact area which is in pain in relation to your teeth?
i mean when i open my mouth it pains ..no problem with my teeth
Which other area is aching?
only my right part of the face pains
towards the nose
I shall take this as the area under your right eye adjacent to the nose.
If yes, I would like to know apart from this ache what other symptoms do you have now?
i have a little cough too . .
lot of discolored mucus coming out
any of this list?
Do you frequently suffer with sinus problems?
nasal discharge yes.. stuffy nose yes.. sore throat NO drippi nose yes fever NO
I am sorry for bothering you more with questions, but answer to these questions will help me frame my answer better.
I hope you don't mind answer couple of more questions.
but i just started taking it today with reference to some old prescription which i preserved when i had a similar problem a few months back
1. Do you frequently suffer from sinus problems or is this a rare event?
well once in a quater you may say
my age is 29
No problems of diabetes right?
Thanks for providing additional details.
Let me brief you.
You seem to be suffering from right maxillary sinusitis where the symptoms of headache would be more during morning hours and gradually improve in the evening.
You can continue to use xylomist nasal applicants.
In addition you can take Dolo 650mg round the clock say every 4-6 hours
depending on pain relief.
Besides these two I also suggest the below measures
This capsule is available over the counter,
You can add the contents into warm water and inhale
three or four times a day.
i would certainly get karvol plus today
2. you can add antihistamine drugs to the regimen.
is it a tablet
You can use one similar medications as per your doctors guidance.
what is antihistamine is it a tablet
3. Sleep with your head slightly lowered.
do you suggest not to use a pillow
It prevents secretions from collecting into maxillary sinus.
Keep the head end slightly below your body.
Yes avoid pillow; turn your head to the left and sleep.
Antihistamines are drugs that prevents allergic manifestation.
ok will try this today
so is cetrizine antihistamines
4. If pain is very severe, you can also use warm compresses to the right face.
It can be soothening.
Yes, cetrizine is an antihistamine.
5. With these measures your sinus issues should improve.
However if pain becomes severe or if you develop fever
thank you very much
you will need to visit an ENT surgeon.
they can plan sinus wash and write antibiotics for further benefits.
