What causes sharp pain above the nostrils near eyes?
I'm getting a sharp, sinus pain above my nostrils near my eyes. I took livocitrizine yesterday .. but i only made my very sleepy.. but the sinus pain keeps coming back. Is there any medicine I can take, will steam inhalation help.
Also, please suggest something that won't make me sleepy or gorggy.. (if possible).
Steam inhalation will definitely help you, please consider guidelines
I share your concern
Sinus problem can be related to local allergy or sinus infection.
I would like further information to guide you better
Since how long you have this problem
what all symptoms are you having like running or blocked nose, watering of eye or headache
There are alternative of levocetirizine available over the counter like Azelastine nasal spray or Fexofenadine group of drugs
Steam inhalation will definitely help you
Multivitamin supplements especially B complex and vitamin C is recommended to take.
If it doesn't improve consult an ENT surgeon in your own time for an X ray PNS (paranasal sinuses) and clinical examination to confirm the diagnosis
Hope this helps you

Please feel free to ask for more clarification I will be happy to help you
I'm having the pain for about 2 days now. I don't have runny nose or watering of eye.
The pain is there.. above the upper part of nostrils near my eyes and it is irritating when sometimes it becomes very sharp (but goes away in a few seconds).
I'm thinking of avoiding going to office as there is Air conditioner there and it might aggravate my symptoms.
I will try the meds recommended by you and will also try to get an X-ray done if this doesn't improve in a day or two.
You can take symptomatic treatment until you see a doctor
Thanks for reply
You can take ibuprofen or acetaminophen for headaches with symptomatic treatment until you can see a doctor
You need not to worry much ,this could be due to infection or allergy
Avoid exposure to air conditioner or cold icy eating substances like ice cream and cold drinks
Steam inhalation will help you by moisturising the nose and sinuses.
Hope this help you
