hi thank you for your reply. i have 2 root canals done but there is still a pus bubble which i have to go to an oral surgeon for him to cut it out and clean out the gum. as for the sinus infection i have been taking flonase. also i think when i took the blood test i had a bad cough and cold could that have affected it.
