Customer Question

I have a green, putrid smelling discharge coming from my nose, only when I am bent over for a few minutes. I don't get this from blowing my nose. It only happens when I have had my head down for a few minutes.

This is Dr. David

it sounds like you have a bad bacterial sinus infection.

you should see a doctor and get a course of antibiotics such as amoxicillin or azithromyin to help clear up this bacterial infection

you can see a doctor at the ER or urgent care center.

bad sinus bacterial infections can cause sinus pressure, runny nose, headaches, dizziness and putrid green pus discharge from your nose

do you have an urgent care center or ER close to you where you can see a doctor?
