I have the most terrible time this time of year with allergies. Mostly, my sinuses dry out completely and the mucous won't budge, until I steam the heck out of it. Taking cortisone, antihistamines and sinutab type medications makes it even worse.
Have any of you ever heard of Reverse Rhinitis? I can't find anything on google about it, but that is what my doctor labeled my diagnosis.
They usually give me some antibotics once the infection shows signs. Last year the doctor gave me some "new" allergy medicine. It was super anti-histamine charged! Knocked me to bed and caused my sinus cavities to bleed. It took a week to get back onto my feet.
This year, yesterday matter o fact, the doctor gave me some samples of Singulair. It is specifically for Asthmatics, but has a side note for Allergy Rhinitis. What I can't get some of these doctors to understand that I have "Reverse Rhinitis". I guess my Ear/Throat doctor made the term up.
I am sleeping with a vaporizer. My wife even went and got some real Sea Salt. It makes the vaporizer work much better and doesn't eat the electrodes to pieces like table salt.
Anyway, any suggestions on how to hydrate the mucous to get it to flow?
