Week 3Mr. JD is experiencing sinusitis which most cases are caused by a viral infection. I would ask if there is any other pain than the headache Mr. JD is experiencing, I would ask how frequent is the nasal activity as well as when did the greenish substance start. I would ask about travel history, allergic reactions that would cause it. Additionally, I would check CBC, CMP, liver panel as well as ask about previous medication that was taken before. I would ask about tooth pain, ear pain and, eye pain caused by pressure on the surrounding nerves and tissues. Lastly, I would ask about fatigue due to fever, immune response and/or coughing as well as bad breath which is usually due to bacterial infections (Woo, & Robinson 2016).I would treat Mr. JD's cold since he has a 2-week history of cough and congestion. Mr. JD would be experiencing sinusitis. Since sinusitis can be caused by infection, allergies, air pollution, or structural problems in the nose.
