Hi doctor, I’m a 21 y/o girl and hv been suffering with sinus since I was about 5/6 y/o. Every day, either in the morning/afternoon/night, my throat itches along with my ears as well which then leads to me sneezing non stop. For the past 3 days, it has been really bad and when my ear itches it sometimes makes me feel like I’m going crazy cuz it’s that itchy. I’ve tried on nasal spray, normal Himalaya cold balm, some flu meds that was prescribed at the clinic, all these worked only for a while and then my sinus starts back again. Is there any other way to cure my sinus problem, besides hvg to go for any surgery?
