  • Ugh, I have the same thing right now. I've been doing tylenol and cough drops and hot steamy showers (blow your nose like crazy when you get out, even if it takes 20 minutes to clear), but I am going to ask my doc. for some antibiotics tomorrow. Sorry your are suffering too! hang in there!

  • Netti Pot! You could also take echinacea, and garlic capsules (nature's antibiotic). Herbal Tea with honey. My favorite is Breathe Easy from traditional medicinals.

    Eucalyptus oil in the bath or a diffuser and take a steamy shower. :)

  • I second the Neti Pot!! Also, you can use XClear nose spray. totally natural.. works awesome! I suffer many sinus infections, but since I started this regiment with mine, I have cleared them up withOUT antibiotics, and rarely get them now.

  • I'm pregnant as well and have been suffering from a sinus infection. I have been using NeilMed Sinus Rinse ( www.neilmed.co,) and it's worked wonders. 2x a day and I felt so much better after the second day. It's all natural and you're not ingesting any drugs.
