Customer Question

Any std that would affect my sinus and head and throat? Been chasing this for over a year now and can't seem to find what might be wrong ....I keep coming back to herps...I have had full screens and HIV test only thing that's came back is herps...and one point thought it might be syphilis? Thought maybe my screening was maybe to early? Any help would be great at this point.

This is Dr. David

STD would not affect your sinuses and head and throat.

herpes would not affect your sinuses and head and throat.

bad sinusitis inflammation of your sinuses from allergies or blocked sinus cavities would be much more likely

you need to see an ENT doctor and get a sinus CT scan

you might need to be on allergy medications and a steroid nasal spray, like nasonex or flonase or nasocort.

you might need course of antibiotics to help clear up a bacterial sinus infection.

if these don't work, you might need sinus surgery to help your sinuses drain better.

these would need to be checked first.

have you consulted with an ENT doctor about your sinuses yet?
