Hi,

Thank you for your query.

1. Blocked sinuses are poorly ventilated and along with stasis of secretions, continuing infection and inflammation is common. The mucus drains into the throat as a Post Nasal Drip (PND). Sometimes, the infection is fungal and hence medication does not help. Hence supportive treatment is required. Do you have Eosinophilia or Acid reflux? Have you had a Chest X-ray?

2. You should wash your sinuses with a solution of normal saline with a pinch of salt and baking soda added to it.

3. An ideal treatment combination includes an anti-histamine like levocetrizine or rupatidine, an anti-leukotriene, a steroid nasal spray, saline nasal washes and steam inhalation. Supportive treatment such as decongestants, mucolytics. Measures for dental hygiene should be taken.

4. You may share your CT PNS (Para Nasal Sinuses) Scan and investigation (blood) reports here for more specific treatment options. For example, if your Sinus CT is normal, only medication is required. Balloon Sinuplasty may be an option. Radio-frequency and Co-ablation assisted surgery are also newer options as compared to FESS (Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery) if you want to avoid major surgery. The mole mentioned by your family doctor is probably a hypertrophied inferior nasal turbinate or a nasal polyp.

Regards.

Respected sir, My 4year old daughter who weighs 19kg is suffering from Congenital Nasolacrimal Duct Obstruction which a Doctor adviced to go for probing of left sided NLD. When went for a second opinion an other Doctor said that its too late to go for probing bcos her bone has grown and tissues are strong enought that probing will not help. The only solution is surgery. Her CT Scan also revealed that she has PARANASAL SINUSES which says septum is in midline. Mucosal thickening in bilateral maxillary and bilateral ethmoid sinuses Non pneumatised bilateral frontal sinusess Bilateral inferior turbinate hypertrophy Both infundibulae/OMC obstructed Hypertrophied adenoids narrowing the nasopharyngeal airway Motion artifacts noted. Could you please tell whether its emergency and surgery is needed at once?
