Sinus allergy/infection

Hi I too have suffered a lot with same problem allergies are at the route of it. My GP recommended nasal douching with 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp sugar and bicarbonate of soda mixed with 500 ml of boiled water. I make the solution daily and keep it covered, I also brought a Neti pot which you can pour more easily into nostril. It really works . Oh and keep nostrils moist with naseptin or Vaseline .  I do this twice or 3 times a day during flare ups / infection and try to do it daily.( sometimes forget but his time of year is a time to do it daily) . Do this plus your medicines and you should find reliance on them reduce.  Hope this helps
