My 12 yr old daughter is suffering  w/sinus  tract  inf.  & w/ asthma . She is currently takin nebulizer treatments & prednisone. Isn't working?

May need antibiotics: Take her to your doctor. If she is not getting better, she may have an infection that is not being treated (such as bronchitis or pneumonia). She would need to be examined and possibly get a chest xray. If her asthma and her breathing is worsening despite nebulizer and steroids, you will need to seek medical care immediately as she may need more intensive asthma management. ...Read more

I take xzal,singulair (montelukast) ,abuterol inhaler and by neubilizer can i take OTC sinus medication and do these meducations cause delression or anxiety?

Carefully: Try to avoid OTC sinus products that contain phenylephrine which can raise blood pressure when taken w/ bystolic (nebivolol). But otherwise it should be okay. Since you already have high BP - this is important. It should not increase your emotional problems, but if it does - use as little as possible. I hope you feel better soon. ...Read more

Have maxillary sinus cyst, hurts at times,using nebulize ampho B. Had Allergens test revealed IGE Mucor Racemosus of 0.11. Could this be mucormycosis?

Unusual: Most sinus cysts do not cause symptoms although it may potentially impede sinus drainage -> sinusitis if present near the sinus opening (cancer is unusual ) and unusual to cause pain. I would recommend that you consult an ENT. A positive IgE test to a mold alone is not correlated with the presence of fungal sinus infection. In many instances, these cysts may disappear with time. ...Read more
