Since, ten days, I have been suffering with flu and headache. I took tablet Zifi 200 mg and tablet Sinarest. But, nothing seems to be working. After taking the pills, the flu and headache disappeared temporarily for just one day and got back immediately. My wife too is having the same problem. Please help. Thank you in advance.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I went through the details you have given. You seem to have a sinusitis infection. Well, for me to be sure, if you are having sinusitis, I would like to have some more information.
You are complaining of headache. Is it like a facial pain? Or like a brow ache? Is there any headache while bending down?
If all the above conditions turn out to be positive, then for sure, you are having sinusitis.
For allergy, I would prescribe you to use Mometasone furoate (Nasonex) and Fluticasone furoate nasal spray.
To check for bacterial infection, a diagnostic nasal endoscopy must be performed. This test will in turn help us to get information regarding the pathology inside the nose and give us a clear idea as to what is causing the infection to not heal.
Finally, a CT scan of PNS (Paranasal Sinuses) should be taken. It will show the ostiomeatal complex and sinus drainage pathways and also show if any abnormality is present.
Some of the general measures you need to follow to get rid of headache and flu are:
Wish you a speedy recovery.
