Brief Answer:
Nothing to worry much.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

I can certainly understand your concern.

I have worked through your attached reports in detail.

Elevated ESR in your case is probably due to the upper respiratory tract infection.

This is not a matter of over concern. It's a body's natural response mechanism.

This is subside in the due course with resolution of infection.

Post your further queries if any.

Thank you.

Brief Answer:
A short course of oral antibiotics and decongestants will help.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

As per your symptoms the possibility of an obstructive rhinosinusitis should be ruled. This usually causes bleeding per nose. It's a form of recurrent upper respiratory tract infection.

As a temporary measure, oral antibiotics and decongestants will help.

It's advisable to get a HRCT scan of paranasal sinuses to rule out obstructive rhinosinusitis. If obstruction is detected, it needs a surgical correction only.

I generally prescribe oral pills of Amoxyclav, Xylometazoline nasal spray and Sinarest to my patients with such symptoms.

Please check with your physician if he shares my view and if can prescribe these medications to you.

Review with scan reports to determine further course of action.

Avoid exposure to cold and dusty weather.

Maintain adequate hydration.

Post your further queries if any.

Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Fumes can lead to congestion.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Yes, certainly congestion can be caused by these fumes.

Don't go through internet information Sir, it can not only scare you but also misguide you.

Don't worry, take the prescribed medications and let me know how you feel after 1 week.

Take care.
