Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Thanks for your question
Do you have symptoms like nasal obstruction , nasal discharge, fluid trickling in throat, fever, cough, throat irritation ?
No. That cleared up about 4 days ago.
Do you feel pain pressing the tip of nose?
No pain pressing the tip of my nose. Well, if I push it hard, it hurts in the same place as before. It feels like neural pain.
But there should be no swelling with neurological pain
so this does sounds like either sinusitis or cellulitis(superficial skin infection)
If it's sinusitis, wouldn't I have congested sinuses? I seem to have sinus pain but no congestion. What should I do for this?
I am an Ear, Nose & throat specialist and i suspect sinusitis and we see many patients like this
I am suggesting OTC drugs which you can start with
and afterwards you should see your doctor to get antibiotics because they are required
Which OTC meds?
The second possibility is that of cellulitis and the medicines will help you with too
Xylometazoline nasal spray 2 puffs thrice daily for seven days
Tab Aleve twice daily
Tab Sudafed twice daily
Tab Claritin once daily
Take steam inhalation with menthol drops
Use sudafed and xylometazoline if no high blood pressure issues
apply warm compresses to that area
What is cellulitis?
its just a skin infection
which spreads to the adjacent areas
so anything you want to ask for clarification
