Natopheli, I too was told to try a sinus wash, but it sounds so yucky! You think it is really worth the effort? I have infections and my allergies cause my ears to be plugged up. THis is not a good thing when one is a scuba diver. I take Claritin-D in the am and Nasonex in the pm. Yesterday I couldn't equalize deeper than 15 feet. Not fun!! I may try the wash.
