You may have an underlying allergy causing chronic blocked nose and recurrent infections. You may have to see an ENT specialist to test you for allergies and you may need to get a prescription for long term anti-allergy medication and cortisone nose spray. Sometimes the ENT specialist would want to do a MRI scan of the sinuses to see if you have polyps or maybe a narrowing of the sinus opening, or a chronic infection that may need a longer course of antibiotics. Ask your doctor to give you a referral letter to an ENT specialist.
