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.
