Nasal Discharge, Yellowish And Smelly?
Morning … I have flu symptoms, but it’s not like usual, usually when flu symptoms are sneezing u0026amp; a clear discharge from the nose, the flu that I was experiencing was different, it shocked me, when I fell asleep at night, there was a watery liquid coming out of my nose on the left, when I wiped it to the tissue the liquid was slightly yellowish and smelly. Because it was uncomfortable, I immediately checked Dr. HTT, who diagnosed me with sinusitis. within 3 days I took medication (anti-biotic), I still feel uncomfortable, because every time there is or I try to remove mucus from the left nose the smell is very annoying even if someone next to me also smells bad. r n medicine or a concoction that can treat bad breath immediately? r n How long can this sinusitis be recovered? r nIs this sinusitis a category of hereditary disease or can it be contagious? (my husband like had sinusitis before me u0026amp; my father-in-law also has polyps, can’t smell any scents now) r nThank you ….
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Symptoms of nasal discharge and odor can be caused by various things, including:
Nasal polyps Infection of foreign bodies Ozaena or atrophy rhinitis Sinusitis Allergic and nonallergic rhinitis Infection of the nasal tissue Tumors or cancer
Given that you have had your condition checked by an ENT doctor, you are actually taking the right steps. And because you have also received treatment, what you can do next is continue to carry out the treatment that has been given because the antibiotics themselves are usually given for at least 5 days. Sinusitis is not a hereditary disease and can be transmitted because one of the causes is a virus, and the cure for it varies depending on the type of disease and each person. There is also a term chronic sinusitis that lasts for more than 4 months. If after the drug runs out, your complaints do not get better, you should return to the ENT doctor who previously treated you for an evaluation of your condition, perhaps by doing an X-ray, CT scan, or inserting a tube with a camera into the nostrils.
To get rid of bad breath immediately, this is especially possible when there is a foreign object in the nose, namely by removing the foreign object. However, if it is caused by something else, it may take time. What might help might be to use a nasal spray or eat lozenges. In addition, our advice is to avoid cigarette smoke, pollution, dust, and drink more water. Don't try to expel the mucus too hard as this can cause a nosebleed later. So, hopefully it answers your question.
