irrigation

Scarlet,

I used to irrigate everyday with just saline and sea salt. Since I had my sinus surgery about five years ago, I don't suffer from sinus infections anymore (knock on wood) my sinuses drain fairly well, but I found that I can no longer irrigate my sinuses, it hurts just like after my surgery (I thought they set my face on fire). It is important to irrigate with sterile saline or purified distilled water, no tap. I use "ocean" saline spray and occasionally use Rhinocort, steroid spray. Ofcourse I take Allegra 2x a day, most days, but I'm just allergic to everything growing outside, dust, molds, mildews, you name it. The best thing for me is the old boiling water on the stove, a towel over you head and breath the steam to unplug everything.
