I had cold, cough and fever from past 3 days and am on antibiotics azithromycin. After 3 days I recovered from fever but still cold & cough persists and am having chest irritation. Fifth day morning I noticed bloody sputum. I am worried after seeing this, please suggest treatment for this.
I had hard lymph node (painless) TB three years ago and there was two nodes in my left side of neck one is bigger and another is little smaller. I went to doctor and took medicine for almost one year. The smaller one completely vanished but the bigger one was little bit left. But I thought it would be OK soon, so I quit taking medicine. The node has been reducing for all these years but still there in same position even three years later but it is very little (size= smaller than 1/4 of a grape). So I am worried about what to do now although I am not getting any cough or serious problems. Just I am little thin but can do everything like normal people.(age=23 weight= 49). So question is- what exactly I should do now?
Acute sinusitis is a type of infection of the sinus. It involves an infection or inflammation of your sinus membranes. The most common symptom of sinusitis is that you have trouble draining mucus from your nose. The sinus is the cavity around the nasal passage and it may swell up when this condition occurs. Usually, the symptoms are temporary. However, sometimes, especially if you suffer from chronic sinusitis,medical intervention is required.
- Saline Nasal Spray: This is a spray you put into your nose several times a day to clean your nasal passages.
- Nasal Corticosteroids: There are many types of nasal corticosteroids. They include fluticasone, budesonide, mometasone, beclomethsone. These nasal sprays not only help to treat inflammation, they help prevent to prevent inflammation as well.
- Aspirin: This is a type of OTC pain relievers and they help relieve the pain of acute sinusitis. Acetaminophen and ibuprofen are two other OTC pain relievers which can be used instead of aspirin.
- Antibiotics: Antibiotics are usually not required and should never be taken without the doctor's prescription. However, sometimes the doctor may recommend it if he thinks there is a bacterial infection or if the symptoms progress rapidly.
- Immunotherapy: Immunotherapy is given when allergies are the reason you are having acute sinusitis. It is rarely needed, however.
- Surgery: For sinusitis symptoms which are chronic or occur frequently, nasal surgery may be the best option for permanent relief. A number of different surgical procedures can be used to treat acute sinusitis such as balloon sinuplasty, endoscopic sinus surgery etc.
