So are sinusitis and rhinisinusitis same.
What are the reasons for that. I am not allergic to anything . So it must not be allergic, it is not from nose alone my nasal drip too, nasal drip from the nasopharynx that comes into mouth and from spitting through mouth is also bloody, can this also be a sign of rhinisinusitis? How to stop it permanently , and I stay in South so there is no chance of cold place.

Detailed Answer:
Hii. It's evident from your symptoms that you are having rhinosinusitis. It may be allergic or infective,the most common is allergic rhinosinusitis. There are many allergens in nature. You can have allergen skin test to know the particular allergen. The mucus from the sinuses come out of the nasal cavity through the nasopharynx to the back of the oral cavity. Allergy is inherent,by birth. Allergy can never be completely treated. It can be decreased by increasing the body immunity. Do yoga or moderate exercise. Do nasal breathing exercises. Maintain hygiene. Clean bed sheet,pillow cover thrice a week.
