    Is tinges of yellow in the mucous ok with a lingering sinus infection

    All:

    I had a bad sinus infection from a cold in November and the CT scan revealed new marked Pan Sinusitis in December. I was on an antibiotic for 6 weeks and the ENT thought it looked better. Still a lot of mucous but mostly white. Since then I have been using the Neil Med Bottle Irrigation system 3 to 4 times a day and my doctor has me taking astelin 2 puffs in the AM and PM. The congestion is there but much better. Only clear or white when I blow my nose. Nor more nasty smell or blood. Only some yellow or tints of yellow when I use the irrigation system. Not when I blow.

    Is that ok... I just would rather not go back on an antibiotic as i feel so much better of the meds I was on..

    Opinions are appreciated.

    I follow up with the ENT next week

    It's fine as long as it's not progressing, and you're not having other symptoms (fever, congestion, etc.). The slight discoloration could be due to dryness or just the lingering effects of the sinus infection.

    Keep doing everything your ENT recommends until your appointment - the doctor will be able to check to see if he/she sees anything of concern.

    I went back to the ENT for a follow up and I do not have an infection just clear congestion. He added Nasonex and said it is possible the Beta Blocker I am on for Migraines is causing the congestion
