1.Acute bronchitis, 
2.Allergic rhino laryngitis, CT scan report:mild mucosal  thickening in bilateral maxillary sinuses.Still same prb after treatment.

Allergy testing: In allergic rhinitis, it would not be unusual to only have mild mucosal thickening on ct scan. That's good news... You don't have sinusitis or some other process going on! if 3-4 weeks of regular nasal steroid spray doesn't help, (must be used as prescribe to work) then you may want to see an allergist for formal allergy testing. ...Read more

Difference between sinusitis, sinus cancer and hay fever ?

Difference between sinusitis, sinus cancer and hay fever ?

A lot: Sinusitis means infection in the sinus cavities usually from obstruction in the opening thereby obstructing drainage. Sinus cancer is rare and means just that. Hay fever involves only the nasal cavities and the symptoms include sneezing, runny nose, stuffy nose etc due to allergies usually to airborne allergens. By the way, if the nose is stuffy most of the time, it may lead to sinusitis. ...Read more

Are natural remedies for maxillary sinus cancer safe?

Are natural remedies for maxillary sinus cancer safe?

No: There is no natural treatment for maxillary sinus cancer. We are seeing this same question many times about different cancers. Doctors are not banding together against natural remedies. They have their place but not for cancer. Cancer can kill people. You can get fifty opinions and the answer will be the same. This disease needs surgery/radiation/chemo. See an oncologist. ...Read more

Headaches, nasal congestion, sinuses, facial numbness, vision problems.Did CT scan showed only mucosal thickening of bilateral sphenoid and ethmoid.

Chronic sinusitis : Chronic allergic rhino sinusitis can definitely be causing your symptoms. I would recommend a one month trial of daily antihistamines like Claritin (loratadine) or zyrtec and nightly sinus rinses. If your symptoms are not better i would see an ENT like me who specializes in nose/sinus surgery to discuss options. ...Read more

Dry eyes. Can't take decongestant or antihistamine for sinus infection. Will Sinoclear serve the purpose of unclogging sinus n post nasal drip?

Decongestant?: Although antihistamine dries up the nose, decongestant does not. If the decongestant action is needed for just a few days, you may try Afrin nasal spray 2x daily for up to 5 days. A nasal steroid will likely work better if you have allergies. ...Read more

4 courses abx 4 sinus inf: 1 yr. neg sinus CT in feb. Frequent nasal congestion/facial pain. Sprays/decong cause nosebleeds. Sinus surgery an option,?

Not an option: Recurrent sinusitis is common, mostly viral in origin and not an indication for surgery. Antibiotics won't help. CT scans are abnormal in 90% of patients with true chronic sinusitis. Evidence suggests that nasal lavage can help reduce symptoms of acute sinusitis. Consult with your physician to see if an allergy to dust mites, pollen or other allergy is contributing to your symptoms. ...Read more
