Hi, i am having sinus problems for the last 8 months. The problems are excessive mucus secretion, sore throat, blocked nose and very mild pain in the left ear. sometimes i also get blood specs in mucus but that is very rare, the last such instance was about 5 months back. I have tried a lot of medicines, but nothing seems to help, please advise

Hi
Thank you for asking HCM
I have gone through your query. Your problem is most likely chronic sinusitis. A consultation by an ENT specialist is well appreciated. In case of presence bacterial infection characterised by purulent discharge proper antibiotics should be taken. Adequate sinus drainage should be ensured by nasal decongesnts like oxymetazoline. Anti inflammatory drugs like nimusulide helps in decreasing pain and inflammation. I also advise to take vitamin C chewable form in patients with such condition which also help to get ridd off this. Taking steam inhalation also is helpful. If these all no helping then X ray of paranasal sinus and endoscopy is advised.
Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.
Thanks.
