I have trouble with inflammed nasal passages and sinuses. Ive been on nasal steroid sprays for the past 3 years but had a ct scan and it showed i had sinus polyps/very thick mucousa in one sinus but my nasal passages were fine because of the nasal sprays. Im trying to get rid of the polyps in my sinus too but im wondering do nasal sprays not reach the sinuses? Are they only supposed to help the nasal passages or do they treat sinus polyps too?

Im taking antihistamines daily, probably indefinately to stop and possible allergies that might be causing it. Ive tested negative to allergies but the antihistamines helps the sneezing running nose thing i get in the morning.

The steroid spray will not get rid of the polyps - they will have to be surgically removed.
