Question: ive had a horrible cold/sinus infection since sunday and today... i started getting really sweaty and nauseous... and pooping alot. and theres a horrible smell in my nose and taste in my mouth.

is it possible my body is finally sweating out and pooping out the infection? it kinda feels like a big release of something. like my body was collecting the virus and now its expelling it.

Brief Answer:
Acute Sinusitis

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting the query

I have gone through the query and understood your problem. I will try my best to help you.

1. The symptoms you have described seems to be of Acute Sinusitis.

2. You have recovered partially from this. But, few more medications and home remedies can give you complete relief.

3. The weird smell in the nose is due to blocking of the secretions in the nose and from the mouth breathing.

4. Please follow the below medications
-You would require saline nasal spray 4-5 times a day to clear the nasal secretions and ease the breathing.
-Drink frequent sips of warm water.
-Do steam inhalation 3-4 times a day.
- Avoid coffee, chilled food and beverages.

5. Antibiotics are not required at this stage because you seem to be in a recovery phase.

Hope this answers your query; I will be available for the follow up queries.
