Why would you have to take antibiotics? Do you feel it's a sinus infection?

It can lead up to a sinus infection. Change of season is pretty hard for me. Winter to spring and fall to winter are the worst.

Not real bad now....maybe it will not get bad. I sure hope so.

Me, too. The weather changes and I catch a cold which tumbles into URI in no time. I have to treat it so aggressive or I'm in a mess.

I mostly post in the CD thread but I found a nose spray a few years ago that works wonders for me. The main ingredient is cayenne pepper. I don't want to give them a plug but you can find some studies about cayenne and sinus probs. I have felt your pain -- get better soon!!!

So far so good but it's been in the high 60's here and might go down to the 40's next week.  I use saline drops.  Hope everybody is ok.

cayenne pepper! ouch! I'd be afraid to spray that inside my nose.
I'd think I'd have to be desperate to even try it.

That's what I thought too, joy. Well in one day it dropped from mid-70's to low 40's. I am beat.

Will not swim (indoors, of course) or run around shopping and all that good stuff. Did pick up milk, cottage cheese and have eggs, some fruit and a few veggies.

So long.

well..............my eyes were like slits and came down with sore throat (post nasal drip) and stuff. Went to doc, got z pak antibiotics and coridian (hbp cold and cough). My high blood pressure went way up from the regular decongestant.

so far no upper respiratory infection.

VERY TIRED
