I have a problem. Since I was young I always had running nose and was told that i have allergic rhinitis. But for the past two weeks, my nose have been giving me more problems than I can tolerate. My nose is always blocked, causing me to really be breathless. I have a constant headache too. and my sense of smell and taste are pretty much gone. The areas around my nose feels as though they have pressure applied to them. I really need help. I went to the doctors and was given iliadin 0.05%. it works well but i was told not to use it more than 5 days. So i've stopped. Anti-histamins are really useless to me. I really do not know what i sould do or who which specialist doctor I should see. Should I see an E,N,T doctor, respiratory dotor or an allergy doctor?
I have had a blocked nose for app 6 weeks now, also a very runny nose, when I cough my phlegm is green but not all the time, I am finding this so very uncomfortable, I do use a nasal spray which clears the blocked nose for a little while but it comes back again after a few hours, I would appreciate your opinion thanks
