In brief: Sinusitis treatment

Sinusitis should be treated and followed up using ct scans and symptoms as a guide to success.
Other contributing factors such as allergy, immune compromise, polyps, deviated septums, gerd, fungal infections, chemical, environmental and toxin exposure should be considered and controlled. Long term medications, enhanced allergy management and surgery can be indicated.

In brief: Nose bleeds

Overuse of decongestants can dry your mucosa out and your mouth would be dry.
Overuse of steroid nasal sprays can cause nosebleeds. Overuse of antibiotic can cause resistance to bacteria. Everything in moderation. In the right combination and amount it can be very effective.
