Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.Please stop using steroid nasal sprays immediately.Your current symptoms suggest bacterial overgrowth in your sinuses.That will result in foul smelling persistent sinus drainage, headaches etc.You will need to be on a good antibiotic course like Doxycycline 100 mg twice daily for 10 days at least.I will also recommend a CT scan of your sinuses.In chronic cases endoscopic sinus surgery may be needed for long term cure.Best wishes,It was my pleasure to help you today.If I have answered all your questions, Please rate my response Excellent (click on the 5th star).Please bookmark my profile for fast, reliable and authentic answers!This is the link to my profile:
