Re: Rotten Smell
You have a classic symptom of a sinus infection. I'd go see an ENT right away. Infections that aren't treated become polyps. The body fights the infection naturally and encases the infection, thereby forming a polyp, and usually a big one....which then blocks air ways, drainage paths, & etc. If you have any yellow or orangeish color, that's also sign of an infection. Given that you have a prior history of problems, something is more than likely going on up there. You may need a long cycle of antibiotics. In some cases, when antibiotics don't work (usually from poor blood flow to the area), surgery is necessary....The surgeon will actually "peel" out the infection. Good tissue around the infection is stripped with the infected area.
