Hi all,

I've had a couple of issues throughout the last 2-3 years now,
For this period of time, I've had only one nostril that inhales/exhales (one nostril appears constantly blocked) I have used sprays before, as advised by a medical professional, but this does nothing.

Furthermore, I've felt very faint and it's a constant faint/light-headed feeling that really has made a difference to my day-to-day life. I feel as though I could faint at any second, but I havent..

I got prescribed medication for an inner ear infection and then medication for anxiety (no changes at all) I've also seen an ENT specialist/ had an MRI scan/ Blood tests and all showed up nothing.

It's really unpleasant, and I wonder if the nostril/dizziness is related?

I've also had A LOT of spots on my scalp, they're filled with white puss, could this have any reason for this faint/dizzy feel.

Hopefully this gives you some insight on the complications with a diagnosis so I look forward to hearing your suggestions

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These problems are unrelated. Scalp lesions are due to folliculitis. Use topical antibiotics for it.
Your nostril problem and dizziness are stress related.
Consult psychiatrist to evaluate you.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
