  • The same bacteria found in plaque can be found in the sinuses so regular dental check ups and more then once a day flossing along with a good after brush rinse can help a lot. Also using a saline nasal soft mist spray keeps things from gumming up. You can use it as many times a day as you want. Also Garlic raw if you can handle it helps a lot( or hot onion soup)

  • Have you tried a NetiPot?? That could help. But you might need to have them scrapped/cleaned. See an ENT... your doc should have referred you if you are getting infections so often!!

  • Whenever you are on antibiotics you need to be on probiotics. Do you have nasal allergies? Are your nasal passages swelling do to inflammation? Taking garlic pills everyday helps reduce the inflammation and it is a natural antibiotic/antiviral. Take a daily probiotic.
