Another one that takes prescription meds daily year round and does the Nettie Pot twice a day as well. This past few months have been awful!!!

If you are having nosebleeds...don't use Saline. It will dry your nasal passages out. Best to see your Dr. to find the reason for the bleeding. My middle 2 kids have problems with a lot of Sinus meds making them have nose bleeds. Odd.

CORRECTION: honey eaten daily is NOT 100% cure but it does help.
POllen is the price we pay for the wonderful spring season that we all look forward to, and enjoy.

Neill Med which is at Walgreens and probably lots of other pharmacies has a squeeze bottle for the saline packets that really works better than the pot. The whole mess is less than 15.00 and changed my life.

It's a continual thing in my house. Oh my aching head and running nose. Sigh

Maybe that's why I've had a headache just about all day (high forehead region). Advil didn't help much, neither did aspirin. A decongestant helped some, but not a lot.

Chronic sinusitis here, I use the Nettie Pot, it works great kind of an odd feeling filling your sinuses up with water. Plus I have allergies to tree pollen, specifically pine.

I've never heard of this. But it makes sense, and sounds like it would work.
