  • Try a neti pot to help clean out & maintain your sinuses. You also need to get to the root of your sinus problems. Do you have allergies? A deviated septum? non-allergic rhinitis? Enlarged tonsils? Is your house too dry or too humid? Etc....Once you know what's triggering/causing your sinus issues, you'll be able to take specific steps towards healing them.

  • I agree with pp. I had horrible sinus infections until an allergist finally figured out all the things I'm allergic to (grass, dust, some trees, feathers [had a down coat]) and I took allergy shots and zyrtec to control them. I also was on antibiotics for about 3 months to finally get rid of the infection once and for all. That was 10 years ago.
