Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?
Doctor DanB : Have you been seen by an ear, nose, and throat specialist?

I have not seen an ENT specialist.

Doctor DanB : Have you used Afrin nasal spray?

No, I haven't.

Doctor DanB : I would recommend two things: using Afrin nasal spray as directed on the bottle, but for three days on and then three days off, to prevent rebound congestion. Second, though, I would recommend seeing an ENT doctor now that you've had two failed prolonged treatments for a sinus infection. I think treating with Afrin will likely help with the blurry vision to some extent.

Thank you.
