air conditioning makes your sinuses go crazy?

Anyone else have problems in the summer with going in and out of the air conditioning? also spending so much time inside(as its too hot to take a baby out in it)the air conditioning gives you a sinus infection?

  • Air conditioners take the moisture out of the air. This can dry out the mucus membranes in your sinus cavities causing over production of mucus & infections. Use a saline nasal spray frequently to keep them moist.

  • I don't have problems with it but I know my sister does just awful. I would talk to your doctor and see if there is anything you can do or maybe the pharmacist

  • I've had a sinus problem for months now, so it could be the AC.
