Brief Answer:
NEEDS CT SCAN (PARA NASAL SINUSES).

Detailed Answer:

Hi,


I had gone through your question and understand your concerns that you are having sinus issues.

Blocked nose and throat pain suggests post nasal drip secondary to deviated nasal septum.

Yes. it (sinusitis) is curable with medications or sinus surgery. Before getting into tratment, I suggest you to under go blood tests (absolute eosinophilic count, serum IgE- to confirm any allergic rhinitis) and CT scan of para nasal sinuses (anatomical blockage (deviated nasal septum) and pathalogical extenstion (polyp). Depending on the findings, treatment modalities can be chosen.

In the mean time, start steam inhalation twice daily with over the counter xylometazoline (brand name otrivin) nasal drops twice daily.

Hope this answers your question, if you have additional questions or follow up questions then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your questions.

Wishing you good health.
