Discussions that mention prednisone

I too had surgery a couple years ago. I'm not sure if it did anything. I still have a lot of problems. The structural problems can actually come back! Not something I knew until another doctor told me.

According to many doctors, sinusitis is a permanent condition. You can't get rid of it, only control it. The drugs used to treat sinus disease can be VERY dangerous, especially Prednisone and floroquinolone antibiotics like Avelox, Cipro and Levaquin. Prednisone cause permanent systemic damage and increases your chances of skin cancer ten-fold every time you take it. The floroquinolones can damage your nervouse system (peripheral neuropathy), snap your tendons, even put you in a wheel-chair.

No thanks.

The only thing you can try is mixing a small amount (3-4ml) of hydrogene peroxide into your irrigation solution, along with Xyletol. Use cool water, never warm. Blast away at the sinuses 3 times a day for 3-4 days, then use only Xyletol.

I've managed to clear bad infections this way, including one my doctor said would have to be cleared via surgery -trust me, it works.
