I’ve had sinus issues on/off for the better part of a year. Previously it would only randomly flare-up 20-25% of the day with both nostrils being fully clogged but return normal the rest of the day. The occurrence rate has greatly increased in the last few months. The last 3-4 days have been terrible, constant pressure, and headache with additional pain in my cheek and jaw. Previously I would occasionally also get a yeasty smell when my sinuses would flare up, this is near-constant now. Currently only taking typical cold medicine with decongestant but have also tried Flonase in the past with no improvement.
