New here! doing the peroxide flooding
First of all a bit of history
I had my first bout of sinusitis in 2011 which responded to antibiotics (but can't remember which one). This year I had sinusitis around March/April which needed two rounds of antibiotics. However by June I had sinusitis again, and maybe three lots of antibiotics, but the pain never went away. I used saline/bicarbonate flooding 3 times a day which helped a little. The pain was un-responsive to most "over the counter" painkillers such as paracetamol, ibuprofen and codein.
I had a CT scan in August which showed deviated septum and concha bullosa, but no inflammation or infection of sinus. ENT consultant gave me Flixonase (steroid nose drops). However the pain between my eyes, along my eyebrows and cheekbones continued daily, so I started taking Amitriptyline (25 mg daily) which was taking the edge off the pain.
Another CT scan about 2 weeks ago showed sinus infection, however I didn't think to ask the doctor which part of the sinus was infected.
My GP has said to wait to see ENT consultant at beginning if January, and I really didn't want to try another round of antibiotics, so I was back on the sinus flooding once daily. I have tried adding colloidal silver, but that didn't seem to make much difference, so now trying the peroxide....but it stings like mad and makes my eyes water! I only use 2ml of 6% solution in 100ml saline solution...so a very weak concentration.
