Thanks for your question.
I am an EAR, NOSE & THROAT doctor and can help you.
Since how long you have these symptoms?
Do you have symptoms like nasal obstruction, nasal discharge, Flu, ear ache or blockade?
Thanks for your reply & sorry for the delay.
This feels as if you are having sinus problem because the drainage down the throat is the result of the secretions forming in the throat to trickle down the throat. Having some dental disease predispose to the this problem as the root of the teeth are lying in the sinus floor. The fluid accumulate in the sinus and this gives a pressure feeling in the head specially on bending, this is a classical symptom of sinus problem. The red swollen nose can be due to two reasons either part of allergic problem which cause sinus drainage or a separate skin disorder. You can take the OTC Tab Citrizine once daily along with xylometazoline nasal spray thrice daily along with steam inhalation with menthol. You can also take Tab Ibuprofen thrice daily & can apply OTC 1 % hydrocortisone cream on nose, If the symptoms start getting better you can continue but if the worsen or donot get better, visit your ENT doctor and he will be in a position to decide about dermatologist consultation.
I hope this helps you.
Thanks for the reply.
All these are available over the counter.
Xylometazoline nasal spray decongest the openings of the sinuses to drain the fluid easily.
Tab Citrizine is anti allergic
Tab Ibuprofen is pain killer and anti inflammatory
! % hydrocortisone is steroid cream and acts as anti inflammatory to reduce swelling of nose and its redness.
You can get them from pharmacy, i have not mentioned brand names, i have only mentioned generic names thats why you have not heard about it.
Only antibiotics might not help you. It came on sudden but you have visited a doctor so far so you should keep on monitoring it, if swelling keep increasing visit doctor or ER again.
