Question anyone here with atrophic rhinitis?

hi all... im wondering if anyone here is also suffering from atrophic rhinitis? ive been having this since i was 12 (n now im 28, and i just got to know it's AR when i was 22 after i thought of seeing the right ENT), things do not seem to get any better. now it's affecting my eyes, as it's making my right tear duct blocked. so my eyes keep on watery now (since my 5th month of pregnancy). eye specialist suggested to do surgery, but my ent doc do not advice to do so as it might worsen my condition because he said the disease has gotten infected into the bone. he wanted to give me antibiotics (a strong one) but im breastfeeding my 9 months baby currently, so i cant. I just do nasal irrigation at the moment and he gave me locabiotal spray. i did some research and found that using honey could help but im not sure how far it's true.

if anyone out there who suffers of the same disease, i really would like to have some chat with you.. wanted to know what have you tried to cure it. this thing is really bothering me lately my ent specialist said that i just gotta live with it but he will try to reduce the symptom to get better quality of life.. oh by the way, ive lost my sense of smell for the past 6 years or so...

and some additional info, when started seeing the ent at the age of 22 - he gave me antibiotic (klacid).. i was prescribed with it for 1 year or so, but still.. not much improvement. n now i realized that taking antibiotic for long term is not a really smart step.. but ya.. thing has happened..
