Chronic Rhinosinusitis - Full webinar

Do you believe antibiotics are needed when you have a suspected sinus infection after having a cold?

Is it ever too late to start Actair or similar desensitisation? Which is more effective: desensitisation daily meds or monthly needles, given that I need to do them for 3 years?

How do you diagnose and treat CRS of fungal origin?

I get some relief at night when I rub Vicks Vapour rub under the nose. What is your opinion? What about position and massage?

Is obstructive sleep apnoea common in people with CRS?

Wondering if a facial/dental trauma might affect nasal drainage pathways and either trigger or exacerbate CRS?

Why would polyps develop within 4 weeks following sinus surgery?

Do oral decongestants play a role for short term relief?

Is there any link with chronic nose bleeds (epistaxis) and some of these conditions including CRS or milder allergic rhinitis and/or asthma?
