Second round of antibiotics and no relief in sight. I never understood the fuss about sinus infections until I’ve experienced it myself. It’s horrible.
“It’s not you, it’s me“, I said to my antibiotics and turned to home remedies for sinus infections, still shocked that I agreed to take any antibiotics in the first place. I must have been trully desperate for relief.
2 Days later my sinuses were clear. No sinus pressure, no sinus headaches and no congestion. I was amazed to say the least.
In this post, I will share my personal 2-day-sinus-infection protocol with you, along with many more effective home remedies and important information about sinus infection causes, cures and prevention. Ready? Here we go!
Sinus Infection or Allergies? (How to Know and Does it Matter)
Symptoms of Sinusitis (Sinus inflammation), Allergies and the Common Cold are very similar. So how can you tell if it’s allergies, the common cold or a full blown sinus infection?
Well, apparently a bacterial sinus infection lasts much longer than the common cold. The mucus tends to thicken and discolor, and there’s usually pain associated with it:
It’s Probably Allergy if You Have:
Sneezing & a stuffy or runny nose
Clear or whitish nasal drip
Itchy watery eyes
A burning sensation in the eyes or nose
It’s Probably Sinusitis If You Have:
Pain in the upper teeth
Pressure or paint in upper cheeks, top of nose, between eyes or forehead
Stuffed nose, mucous is thick and yellow, greenish or grayish
Symptoms last more than 10-14 days
The remedies suggested in this post will probably help for EITHER allergies or a full blown sinus infection.
