Avatar m tn How can I get rid of a colony of bacteria that has been camping in my nasopharnyx for better then a year now? Sinupulse irrigation of nose and sinus don't reach this area - throat irrigation doesn't bother it either. Every couple of months have to go on antibiotics to clear adjacent areas where spill over from the colony occurs.
Avatar m tn Cpap set at level 9 unable to force air through the barrier. Pulse nasal/sinus irrigation only effective means of removing some of the blockage.
Avatar f tn I'm completely symptom free while on antibiotics and the symptoms return when I stop. I recently started adding mupirocin antibiotic ointment to my nasal rinses. While it is water soluble, it doesn't seem to breakdown enough to coat the sinuses. Right concept, wrong application, I think. There are antibiotic nasal sprays out there that I want to try.
Avatar n tn The natural salinity of my nasal secretions adds to the discomfort. I do have a tendency to pick at the scabs because they itch and annoy me because they look and feel like boogers. I can actually see where the skin is sepparated when I look in the mirror. This problem has been going on for many years and I was wondering if there is anything to be done about it. It drives me nuts! I hope someone out there can help.
Avatar f tn very embaressing as I work with customers every day and was sure they could smell it too. So I went to the doctor and he gave me a nasal cream called Naseptin and some tablets called Erythromycin. After only a day of using these the smell has gone! So there is a cure out there...its just finding the right i dont know if its the cream that works or the tablets or both together but im just glad its gone. I have to finish the course tho.
Avatar f tn He also warned me that it might come out on its own in between -- which is what happened. I have been doing the Nasal irrigation with NetiPot 3 to 4 times a day and that seems to have helped a lot. I have been very careful and have avoided blowing my nose for the first 1 week, however much i wanted to. Today, shortly after my nasal irrigation, I gently blew my nose and out came I think the Stent and some gunk with that. I am so relieved.
Avatar n tn I'm at the very tail end of a cold and wonder if this is something that took hold while my resistance was down from that. Tonight I did a nasal irrigation (Neti pot) and then a sinus flood (lay on your bed with your head over the edge and fill your nostrils with colloidal silver - it puts the colloidal silver in touch with that entire area to kill off any bacteria that are there) and then did a second nasal irrigation again. I'm also taking colloidal silver internally.
