WWYD? Sick question

Last Tuesday (3/29) I went to the doctor because I had been sick for a few days. I had two Nagy ear infections and a sinus infection with post nasal drip. They have me antibiotics and I just finished them up.

The pain in my ears are gone, but they're still extremely clogged (I can hear myself walking, chewing, sounds like I'm under water, etc), in still spitting up green mucus, blowing nasty stuff out of my nose still. My throat is still extremely sore, and I just don't feel well at all. Would you go back to the doctor? Or should I wait? It's been almost 3 weeks I've been sick.

Try Advil cold and sinus. It's got a decongestant in it and that's probably what you need.

I'd call the doctor first and get them to give you some advice.

I've used an entire bottle of Tylenol cold max. it doesn't seem to be helping too much. Maybe the Advil will be different?

It will be different.

Advil cold and Sinai contains psydoepehdrin (sp) and it can only be bought behind the counter. The psydoepehdrin will construct blood vessels thereby reducing swelling and allowing your estachian tubes to drain.

I'll have to see if it's okay to take while breastfeeding. My almost 18mo still nurses. I think that's why I used Tylenol. Thank you for the suggestion!

I'm almost positive you can't take that while breastfeeding.
