Putrid smelling discharge from nose

I have a sinus infection following a tooth extraction. It has lasted almost three weeks, and I am experiencing a putrid smelling discharge from my nose. It is really disgusting. I have had two courses of antibiotics, been flushing my sinuses with a sinus rinse, but nothing seems to help. Any suggestions?

There is a one in a million chance that the site of the extraction is what is causing your grief. I read a case about a man who suffered for many many years...until he found a specialist that figured out that there was still a small hole from the extraction site into the sinuses ( which sit above the gum line ).

He had a the gum sliced and re -stitched, and hasn't had a problem since.

I had my top teeth removed last year. My dentist told me that I would never have a sinus problem again...guess what? My sinuses are worse now than they ever were. No surprise there huh?
I would suggest seeing your doctor and asking to see an ENT.

Good luck to you.
