I have went to the doctor to get a precription to help me and I get better and then within a month, I am sick again with the same thing.


A:   Hello,
Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
Sinus infections can be really bad as they are chronic and resistant.
They also provide a constant nidus of throat infection because of post nasal drip.
I will advise you to get a CT of the paranasal sinuses done, and if it shows evidence of infection, then you can discuss with your ENT about a surgery which will remove the sinuses. It is also called FESS or Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery.

Hope this was helpful,
