My sinus problem never persist even after my nasal opetation. I have to rely on oral medication for certain time. What is the best cure?

It depends: From what I gather, you still have sinus problems after sinus surgery. Very broadly, persistent allergies, smoking, possible need for revision surgery, problems with the immune system, ongoing exposure to germs (e.g. Kindergarten teachers), and a tendency for sinus polyps to regrow are possibilities. Rarely is surgery a total "cure, " so it is important to follow up or maybe get a second opinion. ...Read more

Can I take a sinus pill before I take my thyroid medication. Because my sinus is acting up?

Most Likely Yes: All of the sinus medications warn against use in the setting of thyroid disease.

I would recommend taking the lowest effective dose of the sinus medication and if possible separating the physical time of taking the medications. ...Read more

I have tried over-the-counter medications for sinus congestion yet nothing seems to work. Any ideas?

Sinus congestion: Try irrigating your nose with saline or hypertonic saline. Regular saline is a mixture or one teaspoon kosher salt to one quart of water, tap or boiled. It does not matter. For hypertonic and more congestion add 3 tsp salt to one quart of water. 50 cc each nostril 4 times a day. You can add some baking soda, a pitch, for better ph balance. Good luck. ...Read more

Is there a safe sinus relief medication for a person with narrow angle glaucoma? I have had bilateral iridotomy

Is there a safe sinus relief medication for a person with narrow angle glaucoma? I have had bilateral iridotomy

It depends: Sometimes, despite iridotomies, the angle may remain narrow and any drugs that cause pupil dilation, either systemic or nasal spray, can increase angle closure and cause elevated pressure. I will sometimes recommend a mild nasal steroid if there is no evidence of infection. You need to consult with your eye surgeon as to the severity of your narrow angles and weigh risks/benefits of treatment. ...Read more

My father has a sinus since he was 30 years old. He already took medications but he's still allergic to dust. How to cure his sinus effectively?
