Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
HI, Thanks for your question. My name isXXXXX and I am here to help you today. I will be happy to help you with your follow-up questions also.
I am an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist myself.
Do you have fever?
The ENT did allergy testing and I was positive for many of the allergens.
pain on pressing the area above eyes or on cheeks?
At times headache pressure...yes...mostly at night though.
Pain on pressing the ear from outside?
No pain above eyes, but a little tender on cheeks, but I wouldn't say it is painful.
Yes, ear is tender when I touche it from the outside.
Thanks a lot for your input.
Sneezing quite a bit.
slight cough....not terrible.
Yes it sounds like bacterial infection for which you may need antibiotics because ;
the colour of discharge when green is most likely related to infection.
The pain on pressing the cheek is also seen in bacterial infections.
These are two main symptoms.
The doctor can take a swab from your nasal secretions and can send them for culture and sensitivity test.
Thank you for the info, I will get to the doctor's this evening. I appreciate all of your assistance and information! Very helpful!
This will not only tell the bacteria involved (if any) and will tell the appropriate antibiotic also.
