Sinus Infection Symptoms

is when someone is allergic to something; their body may react by having allergen symptoms such as:

  • 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.


Hay Fever Effects -

  • Watery eyes

  • Sneezing

  • Stuffy nose and sinuses

  • Runny nose

If you are not successful in preventing allergies, visit a doctor to treat the symptoms of allergies or hay fever. If allergic reactions are caused by an insect bite visit a doctor immediately.

      Eric, doctors are behind on this one, because pushing medication is more money for them, of course. But their are doctors that use the Netti-pot at home, they're just not telling their patients about it.
