Since I moved from San Diego to Virginia for college (don’t ask…) my sinuses get really bad, and usually lead to something else later on (upper respiratory infection) and general ugliness coming from my face (first year my eye was swollen shut from it, that was fucked up)
Anyway, I had been just getting meds for it, just psudaphed type stuff, nothing for allergies. Don’t need any of that shit in me.
Ended up getting a nasal irrigation bottle (supposed to be better than a neti pot bc you can get a little pressure). I’ve only been using a sea salt:baking soda mix and warm water. It helps, but I’ve read up on getting anti-microbial/bacterial products into it like xylitol. Not sure how I feel about having that in my sinuses.
Has anyone had any success with anything else? I also boil about a gallon of water on the stove until it’s gone at night, helps keep the house humid and helps some during the winter.
I’m not expecting anything major, just asking for opinions or experiences.
PS. just changed insurance, so when it all goes through i need to see and ENT, I think it’s a structural thing since I can’t breath through 1 side about 1/4 of the year
