Hi Laurie,

You need do take steam inhalation 2-3 times/day, drink plenty of warm water and also use saline nasal drops to relieve the block. Please consult your ENT specialist as you need a different antibiotic and nasal endoscopy to assess the severity of the problem.

Have dizzy feeling, pressure across top of head, on side of nose, have nauseous feeling. Have had the first 2 symptoms before when I had fluid in my ear, but never the nauseous feeling.

doctor1 MD

As you had otitis in the past your pain could be because of sinus inflammation( pain on the sides of nose) or could be a normal tension headache. I advise you to visit your ENT doctor.

The front of my forehead hurts to touch it. I feel like a small lump there and I have a dull headache with short shooting pain. I haven't hit my head or done anything to hurt my head. Do you know why this is happening and if I should be concerned..or is it just sinuses?

From history it seems that there might be having acute frontal sinusitis producing tenderness and lump like feeling.
Take analgesic, decongestant medicine for 2-3 days.
Go for vicks vapor inhalation.
Ok and take care.

A doctor yesterday diagnosed me with a sinus infection and today I have been having back to back nose bleeds along with the non stop flow of mucus. Is it the sinus infection, decongestants drying me out (Psuedofed (sp?) or dayquil s Phenylephrine), or is it possibly something else ?

doctor1 MD

Hi there,

If it's too much or too frequent you need medical attention.
1.The most common causes are nose picking and trauma to the nose. Sinus infection or decongestants usually don't cause bleeds
2. The other less common causes could be increased blood pressure or even tumors deep in your nose...

Hello, I have 2 issues, I had a bad sinus infection Nov. 2011, doctor gave me antiboctics that didn t work 3 kinds. I m still dealing with minor mucus dripping and some smell when laying down. Now I have this brusing over the bridge of my nose where my glasses sit, I just want to make sure my nose is not roting inside my nose. Also I have been doing alot of yard work and golfing in the sun over the last 3 month? I tried everything to stop the sinus infection nothing working? should I worry or stay out the sun for a while. Thanks Eric

Hi. First of all you should visit an ENT Specialist , undergo ENT Endoscopy and may be a CT Scan of sinuses to confirm the underlying problem. This will guide for the further treatment for sure and cure.
