Sneezing, stuffy nose
Sore, dry, itchy throat
Coughing, shortness of breath, or wheezing
Watery, itchy, puffy, red eyes
Rashes including hives, swelling, or red bumps on the skin
Other symptoms can be diarrhea, vomiting, chills, fever, headache, gas, stomach pain, or nausea.
Sinus infection can be treated with rinsing the nasal cavity (nostrils) by using a Netti-pot. Pour purified bottled water into the Netti-pot, add one pinch of sea salt, and shake the mixture. Begin the rinsing process of the sinuses, by leaning your head to the side, and pour the mixture into one nostril, and it comes out through the other nostril. Do the process over the bathroom sink.
NEVER USE FAUCET/TAP WATER!
