  • Call your doctor. If you have a sinus infection you may need antibiotics, or the doctor can prescribe something that would be safe. I hope you feel better soon.

  • Ask your doctor or pharmacist. They should know what's OK to take. (You don't say if you're pregnant or breastfeeding - the answers will be different.) Saline nose sprays are always safe. Have you tried a Netty Pot?

  • Do a neti pot. Use warm water with a teaspoon of sea salt. It always clears it out for me. If that does not help, go to the Dr. for anti-biotics. Nyquil works for us.

  • OH..you are pregnant...call your Dr first about the Nyquil because I think it has alcohol in it. Boil some water and put a few drops of tea tree oil in it and put a towel over your head and breath deep...as much through your nose as possible...and then blow really well.

  • You NEED to see your Doc b/c you probably need an antibiotic!!! Do not take ANY meds unless your doc says it's OK!!!
