No burning, or irritation, the discharge looked like yellow that you would blow out of you nose.

Hi,

Thank you for your input,

This seems that your antiobiotics have not worked usually this type of discharge is seen

in infections like gonorhoea plus other sexually transmitted diseases can also cause this

type of discharge.

At this point you need is to get a culture and sensitivity test of these secretions that will

not only help to identify the bacteria but also will help to administer appropriate

antibiotics that will resolve the infection quickly.

I hope this answers your question.

Take care and have a lovely day.
