I have chronic sinusitis, can’t use continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), need relief?

I have chronic sinusitis, use a neti pot, take zyrtek D, and Flonase. Usually pretty ok, but have had pressure in eyes and ears and can’t sleep with my CPAP right now because of congestion. How can I find relief?

hi
the chronic sinusitis seems to have flared up and has gone in acute stage. antibiotics and low dose steroids can reduce the acute flare up and the associated inflammation. steam inhalation will help.
sleep in propped up position.
thanks

HI
YOU CAN USE EYE AND EAR DROPS TO GET TEMPORARY RELIEF. BUT CHRONIC SINUSITIS NEEDS TO BE ADRESSED. A CT PNS SHOULD BE DONE TO RULE OUT ANY POLYPS INSIDE THE SINUSES
