Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am 27 years old. I have sinus issues like night time colorless running nose for about one to two hours. I also have throat pain and sneezing. Problem increases if I have milk or cold food.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

To start with if you have throat pain with fever and cough or weakness in the body, please consider going to a Coronavirus OPD to get tested. Considering the present times, it is possible. Now assuming that you do not have the above symptoms, it is very likely that you are suffering from allergic rhinitis which is worsening your sinus problem. It typically presents with bouts of sneezing, more at a specific time in the day and related to some material for eg: dust. Apart from dust, there are many other materials that can cause allergic rhinitis also. Patients also may not have itching in the eyes, itching in the nose, eye watering, headache, watery nasal discharge. Since your CT (computed tomography) scan is normal, we can start with treatment immediately. However, remember that allergic symptoms have a high likelihood of reappearing after treatment is complete, so u will have to follow up after 7-15 days. Take tablet Levorid D (Levocetirizine) every night half an hour before sleeping for seven days. Duonase nasal spray two puffs in the morning and night for 15 days and whenever you feel symptomatic thereafter.

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