I developed a sneezy cold about two weeks ago following this

Resolved Question:

I developed a sneezy cold about two weeks ago following this my right nostril became very congested and hearing was impaired in my right ear which also felt blocked up. Still does.
I have been using a steroid based nasal spray for about a week and this clears my nasal passages but they just keep filling up again. also getting a pressure headache above my eye.
When I blow my nose I am discharging vile yellow/green thick snot.
could I have an infection which needs an antibiotic?
Due to fly on holiday soon and dreading it with a blocked nose!

Hi. It definitely sounds like you have a bacterial sinus infection and so you do need antibiotics. You need to see a doctor for an exam and a prescription before you fly out
