Consider trying other nasal steroid options. If the problem persists, see an ENT. If you were much older or have had turbinates reduced, then I would consider dryness as the issue and use saline spray instead. ...Read more

You should see your primary care doctor or your ENT doctor for treatment which may include antibiotics and possibly oral steroids. ...Read more
