    Default Sinus problems

    Its that time of year and my sinus headaches are in full swing. Does anyone have any suggestion on safe meds or remedies that will actually help this pain? I have a fever, chills,headache,weak.....all the good stuff. Thanks!

    I am going through the same thing right now. I am using a homeopathic remedy called ColdCalm. You can get it at Wal-mart usually. Also, Belladonna can help with the headaches. Try taking baths w/ tea tree and lavender oil. I hope you feel better soon!

    I just bought a Neti Pot and so far it's helped. I have a raging sinus infection and I am on antibiotics but the only pain meds I feel safe taking are tylenol and they barely take the edge off...

    so Neti Pot it is!
