Having had heavy nasal congestion for well over a month (thought it was hayfever starting) i finally saw my gp today as nose totally blocked, no taste headache and mild earache. He informed me that i had a nasty ear infection as well as sinusitis. I couldnt understand how things had got so bad without symptoms matching diagnosis. Basically i was told that the pred had masked most of the infection. Despite being on pred for 10 yrs i have not had this problem to such an extent as at the moment.
Can anyone tell me more about pred masking infection.?This hasnt happened before .even with regular chest infections.
