I won't get into a detailed argument with the first responder to your post but would encourage you to be extremely wary of that non-scientific advice.
I've been dealing with sinusitis for about 7-8 weeks, went through 2 rounds of antibiotics (Amoxicillin and Clarytromicin), but it hasn't cleared yet. I have nasal polyps and tested positive for mold and other environmental allergies
The polyps may be the root cause of the infection not clearing. They can block the natural drainage passageways in your sinuses and cause infections to recur almost immediately. Has your doctor recommended anything to help shrink the polyps? Generally a short course of oral steroids followed by the use of a nasal steroid spray and Singulair are pretty effective at keeping polyps from recurring (unfortunately, there is no natural way to deal with polyps, they are difficult to treat and, if not addressed, can require surgery to remove them.
I was wondering if any of you, the sinus pain sufferer, have any suggestion on what to do to improve my condition.
Here's a list:
1. Get a Neil Med Sinus Rinse bottle and irrigate your nasal passages 2-3 times a day.
2. Talk to your doctor about a steroid nasal spray to keep the inflammation at bay during allergy season.
3. Take an antihistamine daily during allergy season (and consider undergoing allergy testing).
You really should look for an ENT or allergist who specializes in treating chronic sinusitis so you have someone who can help you manage this (if the ENT recommends surgery right away get a second opinion).
