My name is Alycia and I have a cold question. I havent had any type of cold for about 5 years now and last Tuesday I got one. Sarted out with post nasal drip ( I have bad allergies and thought it was that). Within the next couple days it developed into a stuffy runny nose. By day 3 I was blowing my nose every 15 minutes. That lasted a couple days. I have been rinsing my nose out with salt/baking soda every day and also steaming with a drop of oregano oil every day. I am on day 10 of this cold and still am very congested and still am getting yellow/green mucus out of my nose. Mostly on one side. I have had no cough, or any other symtoms.
My question is, how long could this possibly go on? Might I now have a sinus infection? I cant believe this cold and mucus could last 10+ days. Is it time to go to the doctor or am I being impatient.
