Brief answer....wait for the CT result
detailed answer...
Thanks for the query.
Since you are not being relieved by antibiotics,nasal sprays and cortisone,the best is to go for CT and find he answer. Since you are already undergoing CT tomorrow,let us wait for the report of this.
Further treatment would depend upon the findings in CT.
I hope it helps,however you are most welcome to revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck

Thank you . I had a CT about 5 years - showed a slight deviated septum and some inflamation. What do you think the likely situation is and treatment ?

It is very difficult to comment as the reason could be some local fungal infection or some polyp etc. It is no point guessing and getting worried unnecessarily because there can be various causes for it.
Just relax and wait for CT.
