  • The only thing that's working for me right now is Benadryl. I usually take Claritin, but it's doing nothing for me. You can also mix some ginger in hot water and drink that as a tea. It helps alot!

  • I hate taking meds, so what I do is make a super spicy meal to clear me out, then drink some strong hot tea, and take the hottest bath I can stand so I breath in all the steam.

  • Ginger tea, a strong cup of coffee.....a netti pot or saline baths and showers....homemade chicken soup or broth...

  • I use a neti pot - does wonders for sinus issues.

  • Please remember not to mix those kinds of meds with alcohol. It is fatal...sorry just had to let your know. We recently lost a classmate and I think that's what happened.
