Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have bad running nose, sneezing and blocked nose in the morning for the last ten days. I have taken Augmentin 375 for five days. It improved a bit but again relapsed today. Please help.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your query and can understand your health concern.

    Running nosecan be due to upper respiratory tract infection. You can take tablet Allegra M (combination of Montelukast and Fexofenadine) twice daily for about three days. Warm water gargles with salt added in it will help you if done thrice a day. You can try steam inhalation with a capsule Karvol added in it three to four times a day. While taking steam, just break the capsule and add the liquid part in hot water and inhale it for 15 minutes. If you have a bad throat infection also then you can take tablet Levofloxacin 500 mg once daily for five days. Hope you get well soon.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
