Did the allergist order any tests to rule out sinus infection? My ENT keeps insisting I don't have infection, but sent me to neurologist who ordered brain MRI which showed yet another infection. Every time I get a CT or MRI of the head it shows infection. Antibiotics clear it up for a few weeks and then it comes back. I've had it since my nose was broken in a wrck 3 years ago.
I had the sinus opening surgery, but that didn't help and now I have a chronically dripping nose.
Diflucan, ordered to kill off fungus or yeast, hasn't worked at all and gives me nausea and stomach pain.
Mucinex 12-hour helps thin mucus so lungs can clear it, also relieves congestion in sinuses. Instant release ingredient only lasts a few minutes for me, not much help.
I rinse twice a day with a little relief for an hour or so. It doesn't cure the infection, even when antibiotic is added. I suspect a plaque.
