I have a problem of nasal congestion for almost 15 days now. It started with running nose first and then the nose got blocked. In the past, I have taken antibiotic for eight days. For three days, I had taken Augmentin 375 twice a day and Erythrocin 500 one tablet a day for five days. I had shown it to an ENT specialist at my place. He has done endoscopy and diagnosed some turbinate issue in my nose for which he has suggested laser treatment. I would like to have second opinion on the same, to reaffirm whether it is required at this stage? I am a 46 year old male with no past medical record on this. If not required then what could be the treatment? I am attaching the diagram drawn by doctor after endoscopy. Red marking is the issue shown. Please let me have a detailed opinion. Thank you.
