Blocked nose, chronic sinus, loosing voice?

Xylitol. Xylitol is a natural sugar and breaks up biofilm in the body. That's where germs mulitply. It is found in a nasal spray called xlear (pronounced "clear") and in chewing gum called spry. Pleasant tasting too! Certainly see doctor first to rule out medical conditions. Peace and good health.
See an ENT. Unfortunately you can't be helped online otherwise, except the advice to see a specialist, the reasons for your symptoms are numerous, so good history and physical examination by an expert are needed. Meanwhile, saline nasal washes, voice rest, warm fluids, steam inhalation, etc would help but will not replace the expert input, good luck .

Have chronic sinusitis caused by dev sep with 90% rs blockage, and hyper turbinates. How come my sinus infections are always on the non-blocked l-side?

Good question. This is a question that is answered in the first year of ENT residency and is a good one. The side opposite the deviation is receiving more air because it is more open. That is why the inferior turbinate on the side opposite the septal deviation is usually hypertrophic. That is why the lateral wall of the nose on the side opposite the septal deformity tends to be swollen leading to sinusitis. Read more...

Specialists. I recommend that she be evaluated by both a specialist in infectious disease and follow-up with an otolaryngologist for the sinus problem. The specialist can reculture her and order appropriate blood tests to assess her infection fighting status. The MRSA is most likely colonizing her nasal passage rather than causing an active infection now and may or may not require treatment but the specialist. Read more...
Allergist/Immunologist. Would help you sort it out, history suggestive of colonization rather active infection and chronic sinusitis, allergies to environmental triggers might be the cause, as adenoids were removed twice, and can regrow, hope she is otherwise growing and developing fine. Check aaaai.org or acaai.org for an allergist/immunologist in your area, wish you both wellness. Read more...
