Patient : Recently my nose has been having a tingling sensation, at first I thought the problem was allergy related so I took allergy medicine hoping the problem would go away. It went away for an hour then it came back but this time with nasal discharge and sneezing. To make matters worse, I smoked hookah and I breathed the smoke through my nose, it was not a smart thing to do. Now the tingling sensation will not got away and I keep sneezing and the nasal discharge is worse than ever. It is keeping me up at night. I tried to take cold medicine because I had a sore throat and I thought it was cold related, it did not work. Then I took a sinus medicine and it still did not work. I would like to know if I have a sinus infection.
