In brief: Sinusitis

Allergic, viral , bacterial or fungal - color of discharge no help - if fever- probably not allergic -if lasts more than 10 days, not viral - try Mucinex (guaifenesin) and Claritin otc - if not improved - see doc.
By the tenth day - also consider netty pot.

All of these treatments are appropriate for different causes of sinus troubles. We ENT physicians will try to identify the actual cause and recommend an appropriate treatment. As to new treatments go, balloon sinuplasty is a new therapy commonly performed in the office with local anesthesia and mild sedation. Patients recover much faster and the procedure is mucosal sparing meaning that no cutting or tissue removal is needed. We typically perform these procedures on Fridays and patients can return to work on Monday.
