, I had a mauler remove. As a result I developed an aces

Customer Question

Hi, I had a mauler remove. As a result I developed an aces in my sinus. I am on my fifth course of antibiotics - during the last 4 weeks. Still have a horrible smell in my nose, constant post nasal drip and had been in bed for three days. The dentist does not know what to do - just more antibiotics and my GP referred me back to the dentist even though I explained to him the antibiotics is not working. What should I do? Should I go to A & E? It is affecting my eyesight and I am getting headaches etc. Thank you. Dirk

Dr. David :

should ask for a referral to an ENT surgeon and get a sinus CT Scan performed.

Dr. David :

this can check for sinus abscesses from your molar removal.

Dr. David :

you might need sinus surgery to help drain your sinus abscess infection.

Dr. David :

you might benefit from also hyperbaric oxygen chamber therapy to help you heal as well.

JACUSTOMER-jowasrkj- :

Thank you. The problem I have is that my GP continues to refer me back to the dentist. Can the dentist refer me to an ENT surgeon, or must it be the GP?

Dr. David :

it must be your GP to refer you to an ENT surgeon.

Dr. David :

your GP can also order a sinus CT scan for you.
