Doctor: Bilateral Nasal Polyps are usually seen in cases of chronic (long standing) nasal allergies. Blood tinged nasal secretio ns may also occur in such cases, due to forceful nasal blowing. Early intervention and management of your condition is required, to avoid complications like Acute Sinusitis, Otitis media (infection of the middle ear) or Bronchial Asthma later on in life. Appropriate medication will be prescribed by an Allergy Specialist or an ENT Specialist, after assessing your allergy status and clinical symptoms. In some cases of severe obstruction due to intranasal polyps, surgical intervention may be required.
