Is there any relation between sex and sinusitis?
Q: I am a 30 years old man who gets nasal infection, cold, headache, ear pain and related allergies frequently for the last 10 years. Is there any relation between sex and sinusitis? I have noted that when I do sex I always get cold after few days. Please suggest.
A:There is normal moderate nasal congestion and blockage during sex due to excitement and the release of certain hormones. This can lead to some prolonged response and then become stable after some time. Please use simple nasal drops to decongest nose after sexual activity and this will shorten the response.
