Treatment In-depth

  • Optimal therapy of any serious or persistent medical condition depends on establishing the correct diagnosis. There are numerous potential causes of nasal discharge and before any treatment can be recommended, it is important to identify the underlying cause. Initial therapy should be aimed at the underlying cause.

  • Antibiotics may be used to treat some infectious disease process, but the primary cause, such as tooth root abscess, must be also treated. Nasal discharge that is unresponsive to antibiotics is a common finding with cancer.

  • Nasal fungal disease may be treated with antifungal therapy.

  • Polyps are treated with surgery.

  • Foreign bodies are removed with rhinoscopy, endoscopy or surgery.

  • Nasal tumors are treated with radiation, +/- surgery or chemotherapy.
