More infections since having post nasal drip
I've had PND since March 2006 and it responded with antibiotics twice (1 week amox) and then came back 1 month later on first attempt and about 2 weeks after the second attempt. The thick yellow/green mucous turned normal colour too, and it wasn't thick while taking antibiotics!
I always get this solidified crap between back of my throat and my nose too, which is very irratating and I sometimes gag on it or it gets stuck. Its almost like the size of my little finger nail (similar to a sqaushed raisin but yellow/green/rusty brown colour =/ ) I'm not sure where its coming from (which sinus) because I use a neti pot and 500ml with half a teaspoon of salt to wash out my sinuses everyday (2-4 times a day) but it never seems to remove it! but (IF) I sneeze it seems to work its way out (unplugged) from somewhere.
Anyway, since I've had this nose problem I've been frequently getting throat infections or any type of upper respiratory infection that goes around. I've had one probably every 5-6 weeks! When in the past I would had EVER be sick, even when I'm around people that are ill.
I have my first ENT appointment on monday, what can I expect?
Also has anyone else experienced more frequent viral infections since having Post nasal drip? I would assume its because the thick mucous stay around the throat longer and virses are there longer to infect tissue?
