Asthma and allergic rhinitis problem

0

Dear Doctors,
My name is Lori and I have been having terrible sinus and asthma problems for years now. The pulmonologist says (back home in Manila) that my asthma is caused mainly by sinus allergies (rhinitis) postnasal drip but it had became worse of the years. I guess this is hereditary because I have family members who have allergies, in different forms. Mine just took sinus and asthma forms. I am on Symbicort 160, prednisonol, Ive tried inhalers. I wish there was a way that I could greatly improve or even heal, without having to resort to surgery. Sometimes it feels like my nasal passages are like a brick, it is so blocked. I also tried using neti pot and although it does help quite a lot, I would of course like professional advice. Any advice or help? the workplace I am right now in does not provide regular insurance, only a health card that does not really cover much. Thank you so much, and God bless you all
PS coud I also ask if Ambroxol syrup is ok for an asthmatic? thank you…

Hi there,

Thanks for your question. Sinuses are filled with air, but when sinuses become blocked and filled with fluid, germs and/or bacteria form which result in infection. Conditions that can cause sinus blockage include:

– The common cold
– Allergic rhinitis
Nasal polyps
– Deviated septum

You can find more information about this condition on this service page.
