Hi,
Your Xray indicates that you are suffering from chronic sinusitis.Both your sinuses,Frontal and Maxillary sinuses are affected.
That is why you are getting attach of cold and cough are very frequently.
You do hot water with some balm or eucalyptus oil inhalation daily at night.
For chronic sinusitis you go for proper antibiotic course after consulting your doctor.

I have an appointment to discuss with my doctor next week but thought I would also send a note here to see what the word is. Thanks you in advance and have a great day. KOJ

I had dry nasal mucous membranes and my nose was constantly bleeding yesterday. This is because i was around the driest and coldest weather which dried up my right nasal membranes causing it to bleed. It is now a day after and I'm going to a spa. I want to go into a steam room but I'm worried it'll open up my nose causing more intense bleeding. Is it safe for me to go into a steam room?
