Why do I keep getting sick?

I have that gross post nasal drip, and sore throat. I had it in November for 2 months! And, now it is back again. It is not allergies.

  • sinus infection. I went through the same thing...go to the doctor for antibiotics or see if someone on here has something a little more holistic for ya!

  • Do you take a nose spray for the postnasal drip? I just discovered they have that now and it works for me. Good luck!

  • All of the above are great answers! I just wanted to add that for some relief from the symptoms, you can get one of those nasal pots...to flush your sinuses with saline. It sounds gross...but everyone I know that tried it says it works like a charm.
