Suggest treatment for repeated sinus infection

Hi. I've had sinus surgery twice to open up passageways and drain better. Still, I'm plagued with terrible sinus infections that have been with me for over 2 years. Can't breathe, yellow, green smelly discharge. Last round of antibiotics was for 2 months straight, 1 month was Cipro. Infection seemed better, but returned. Tried all kinds of natural methods including irrigation with saline, H2O2 (ouch!!), strengthening immune system, mucinex, now going to try NAC. In the past, did allergy injections with no relief. Other than going on a cleansing fast, I think I've tried everything. I'm tired of this fight and ready to give up. What options are left? I'm really, really, sick of being sick!

Welcome to HCM,

After reading your clinical history it appears that you are most probably having chronic rhino-sinusitis .

If I were your treating Doctor for this case , I would advice you to take treatment to get early relief
Steam Inhalation twice daily,
Saline nasal spray thrice daily ,
Plenty of fluids ,
Antihistaminic at night &
Antibiotic azithromycin .

You will need to see your doctor to get a prescription.
Thank you.
