I got my first sinus infection back in March. I really wanted to try one of these things, but just assumed it didn't work. Next time, I'm gonna go
for it, because I don't think I can go through another sinus headache again. =.=
I suffered from sinus infections for years. I have had multiple surgeries and tried every drug on the market. Finally my ENT gave me one of the
squeeze bottle types. Insta cure! Now when any time I see some one suffering from allergies, cold or sinus infection I tell them about this. It
It is a little uncomfortable to use at first. You have to make sure you are inhaling through your mouth when you squeeze (the natural tendency is to
hold your breath) or you'll get that feeling of water going up your nose, like when you are swimming.
Also make sure you buy the premixed packets. I tried making my own solution and caused burning in my sinuses. I found out that if the ratio isn't
just right you can either burn your sinuses or water log them.
I am sure the netti pots work just as well, but I prefer the squeeze bottle type.
Also sometime it will feel like there is still water in my sinuses if I have a really bad infection, because the infection makes it harder for the
water to drain. I'll will pop a decongestant in those situations. I wanted to add that, so you guys got the whole scoop, in case some one who is
stuffed up with mucous so thick that it prevents the solution from draining all the tries it and it doesn't work the first go around for them.
