Sinus infection again

Hi,

Looks like I have a sinus infection again - third one in the past 9 months but never had any before in my life. Damn this is frustrating. Felt something coming on for the past week with a sore throat and sure enough I coughed up thick green/yellow mucus this morning.

I haven't been irrigating for the past 3 months even though I have constant nose/ear congestion. I thought the Nasonex would be good enough. So started irrigating again this morning and will see how it goes. Would twice a day irrigation be okay?

Any advice on meds? Should I be taking antihistamines or decongestants while having an infection? I've only been taking them every once in a while and don't think they help much anyway. Don't want to take any antibiotics if possible. Also, is there anything which works well for a sore throat?

Re: Sinus infection again

Mucinex.....that's what I'm taking right now to keep a sinus infection away....drink with tons of water.

Good luck....no fun!
