Avatar n tn The preceding is usually a nuisance but, uncommonly other problems, for example nasal polyps can cause excessive phlegm. I suggest that you ask your allergist if other causes should be considered. You might also ask him/her if the use of an inhaled nasal steroid or a drug called Montelukast (Singulair) might help.
Avatar n tn Effective treatment of nasal polyps with a nasal steroid spray, along with the avoidance of aspirin and NSAIDs, is crucial to the management of aspirin-sensitive asthma. You may or may not need to use other inhalers to optimally control the asthma, but the answer to that will become readily apparent over time. An oral medicine, montelukast has also been shown to be efficacious in aspirin-sensitive asthma.
Avatar f tn Chronic sinusitis b undeveloped sinus X 1 C. Not serious nasal polyps In the 1970s a clinical ecologist determined by back substance test that I had numerous allergies and got me started on immunotherapy by giving myself thigh injections. I do not recall why I stopped. I believe it was a natural health ideology that I should be strong enough without drugs.
Avatar n tn Antibiotics, steroids, over the ctr meds, all to no avail. After second surgery was placed on montelukast and nasal saline rinse with budesonide, which helped for 8 or 9 months. Then started coughing at night and I became concerned it might be from the montelukast so I stopped it (although ENT said to stay on it). Now on an inhaler. It's been a nightmare. Although I know there are worse things, I feel that the quality of my life is forever changed. I never feel well.
Avatar m tn I've visited my doctor who checked me and found that my heart sounded healthy and my lungs are clear (save for my history of asthma), though she noted I am overweight by approximately 17-20 pounds (adding to my apnea) and I had developed nasal polyps (large enough that breathing through my nose is very difficult. I was prescribed budesonide and montelukast for asthma maintenance, mometasone for my polyps, and ventolin for emergency.
Avatar m tn Researchers at the Mayo clinic found that 96% of chronic sinusitis sufferers had a fungus in the nose. • Nasal polyps can grow inside your nose from years of allergic reactions or infections. These growths can get as big as your fingertip, and block your nasal passages and sinus openings. Polyps may possibly be related to chronic allergic fungal sinusitis, but doctors aren’t exactly sure what causes them. Polyps can be removed by surgery, and the air passages will be opened considerably.
Avatar m tn But her tonsils are little large but no infection seen. Her nasal passage are conjusted for allergy. Nasal spray and ketotifen syrup also give along with antibiotics.
Avatar m tn 3 weeks ago had nasal discharge and Dr. gave me a corticosteroid nasal spray works well but doesn't stop the pressure in head/eyes. The phlegm used to be clear until when the sinus problem started and it just keeps going bacl to my throat . Colour yellow/green. I alwasy have to cough on purpose to relieve the phlegm like 100 times a day. I have gone also to GUM clinic for STD tests and all fine. Did vitamin, iron, B12 and throid tests and all fine. I will see my Dr.
Avatar n tn , 3 rounds of antibiotics, and family dr. sent me to ear, nose, throat specialist, who gave me all the nasal antihistamines and steroid sprays which didn't help. Put me on Prednisone (steroid) for 12 days and finally got better, although not perfect. The fatigue, balance problems, pressure in head is gone, although I still get pain in right back of head when sleeping and still get stopped up. Been using saline irrigation, also. They are sending me for allergy tests.
