How to get rid of a sinus infection?
« on: November 20, 2010, 09:47:04 am »
I feel so bad .... I really don't want to have to go to the doctor but I know that I have a sinus infection.  Any home remedy ideas?  I don't want to be sick for the holidays.

Unless someone here is a doctor don't take medical advice from a message board a trained doctor is the only one who can tell you the correct thing to do.  Your health is nothing to play with go to the doctor.  They have walk in clinics in Target or CVS find one in your area and go.

i would suggest asking a pharmacist at a local store if you can't go to the dr.
If it truly is an "INFECTION" you likely need an antibiotic

I'm considering buying a neti pot.  I don't know if it will help an established infection, but it can help prevent them.
