Customer Question

I have suffered with sinutius for 5 years now. I have tried every possible thisng to reduce the runny nose and itchy eyes and constant sneezing. I have read online that strep A could be the cause for sintius? I am wondering why GP would not test for this? Is it possible to get treated.

2 years ago I was suppose to get pollops removed in nose however operation never went ahead as I had coldsore at the time and Doc said he could not operate. I was glad I never went through with it as I think I can be treated some other way, its a matter of getting the right Diagnosis. I am wondering do I ask GP for Blood test for Strep a testing? and if it ithis is it treatable?

Kind Regards
Brenda
