Question: Hello Doctor,
I have an issue in my nasal cavity since childhood ( I remember this problem started after getting cured of Jaundice) which i suspect to be Acute Sinusitis.
Every morning I wake up, my nose is blocked with mucus and no matter how hard I try to remove it, it always stays in there.
I have been ignoring this issue all this while but now I am really fed up.
I have consulted doctors and acupuncture specialists and all I get is take steam with vaporub.
I have tried taking anti-allergy tablet (Cetirizine) and it gets cured sometimes so I suspect this could be due to dust allergy.
Can you suggest any permanent solution to this problem?

Brief Answer:

You need to go for a thorough check-up at first.

Detailed Answer:


I've gone through your query and understand your concern.

Acute sinusitis (if at all diagnosed in the first place) is a very well curable condition but if not, then in time it can become chronic (which can be a reason behind this).

Although, the initial complaint to the post-recovery state of jaundice may not be related to this.

Please note, an underlying allergic component may also be present (in fact, it can be a reason behind secondary complications like the persistent nasal blockage in this scenario).

As from your description, it seems like an ongoing concern for quite a while now.

Ideally, rather than trying another anti-allergic or any other over the counter remedies, a proper diagnosis should be made to determine the further course of action.

What I'd suggest, in this scenario, is to go for a Complete ENT check-up at first and a few relevant investigations (CBC, ESR, Serum IgE level, CT-scan of the Para-Nasal Sinuses) which will be able to pinpoint the exact diagnosis in the first place.

Once diagnosis will be confirmed, specific treatment can also be initiated accordingly.

There's no need to visit multiple doctors, just go for the ENT-specialist check-up followed by the investigations.

Nothing to worry, as with prompt management recovery should be permanent also.

Hope my answer is helpful!

Kind Regards,
Dr. Arnab Banerjee, Critical Care Specialist
