Are the floodings causing you to feel worse than you did before you started the floodings? Are the sinus floodings with peroxide doing you any good? Do you have a sinus infection? Could you have a cold? Are you having sinus problems due to an allergic reaction? Are you currently taking antibiotics?
What are your reasons for doing sinus floodings with peroxide? Have you had sinus surgery? Have you sought medical help with your sinus problems?
In my case, when I first experimented with flooding my sinuses with peroxide, I did not dilute it enough, and it completely and painfully closed my sinuses for about three days. During that time I felt like I had a cold, and felt lousy, similar to how one feels when one has a sinus infection, or a sinus allergy attack.
I was just wondering should I continue to flood my sinuses with a very weak solution..say 50-1 until I start to feel better....or just rest it for a few days?
There are no medical professional on HealthBoards, only fellow patients, like me.
After I was able to cure my long-time, chronic sinus infection misery, I documented my experience and started a thread, which is at the top of this Sinus Problems topic, named:
Infrequent Sinus Flooding with Peroxide & Baking Soda halted my infection nightmare
at the link:
The thread and documentation, of my personal experience of sinus flooding with peroxide, contains a lot of information about the experiences and problems
of myself and others, who have tried sinus flooding with peroxide. Some who tried it, like myself, have gotten better, but others have not.
The real reason I am asking is I am trying to clear this up, for at least some relief, for Christmas day...and I don't want to aggravate my sinuses more than necessary. |
Would a very weak solution prolong the cold symptoms...therefore resting for a few days would help...or would a weak solution help with the cold symptoms?
Peroxide can be very irritating to the sinus membranes. In my case, once my chronic sinus infection problem was cured thru sinus flooding, I did not have to do another sinus flooding with peroxide, or any other sinus irrigation, again.
I am so sorry that you are having sinus problems and hope that you can find some relief.
Best of luck and health for your future, and I hope you can have enjoyable Christmas and New Year holidays!
