I push extremely thick&sticky mucus from my sinuses  out of my nose & throat &i sound congested. What is this? Antibiotics & spray  haven't helped

Many possibilities: Without more information it is hard to know for sure. One possibility is that you have a sinus infection and the antibiotic you were put on was not effective. Another possibility is it may be an allergic issue and the spray (assuming it was a steroid spray) couldn't get in your nose well enough to work. I strongly recommend you see an ENT doctor for a complete nasal evaluation. ...Read more

I started Flagyl 3 days ago for c-diff, im i still contagious.Can c-diff be hard stool with thick/sticky like mucus?

Diarrhea-contagious: Since only 80% of c diff responds to Flagyl you should consider yourself contagious at least until the diarrhea resolves. There is also a relatively high recurrence rate so the real answer is you are potentially contagious until the diarrhea resolves and stays gone for a couple of weeks... ...Read more
