How do I get ride of a bad smell from a sinus infection
I would visit my doctor and get put on antibiotics. If there is a "smell" this is the infection itself..
Be very careful about what antibiotic you take. Think twice and then again before taking one from the fluoroquinolone family.
If you're at home or don't mind people smelling it on you at work or whatever, you can put a little Vicks under your nose. The other thing I do is keep popping strong mints in my mouth. I'm not sure why that works, but it does for me.
You may want to try rinsing your sinus passages with an over-the-counter spray-type of saline solution. If this doesn't work, you can try the old-fashioned way: submerge your face in a bowl of warm, salty water, briskly and for several times. This should bring the infected mucus out of your sinuses, and it is this infected mucus which causes the foul odor. Have a clean hand towel on hand to "catch" the mucus. The submersion technique can be performed a few times a day, too. Good luck and I hope you feel better very soon!
Nasal cleansers are a good way to get rid of the smell, and infection. A saline rinse can be used, as well as one at home. Take a pinch of salt, in the cup of your hand. Fill "cup" of the hand with water. Sniff with one nostril, hold the other shut. Then gently blow. Flushes out infection, and mucus. Over the counter nasal rinses that contain grapefruit seed extract, and olive leaf are very effective for sinus problems. They kill the bacteria that causes the infection, right where it starts, in the sinuses. Two very versatile, and effective herbs. Information, and ordering, as well as other recommendations can be found in my article http://artist101.hubpages.com/hub/Is-it … or-allergy
Hope it helps
