Hi there:

I have had a problem with my nasal passages. It feels as if there's inflammation inside the sides of my nose. It hurts to breathe through my nose, so I've been breathing through my mouth. I started off with a cold/flu and I was constantly blowing my nose.

I had been on flonaise for a week, then on antibiotics, then switched to another nasal spray (steroid) and it still hasn't helped. The doctor is sending me to a Ear Nose and Throat Specialist.

In the meantime, can anyone tell me what this could be and what relief I can get? It's been going on for over a month now.
