Thanks, yeah pain med does really nothing for it. I need to do the irrigation thing I've been doing the tea, the steam not so much. The wet wash cloth is my thing too right away when I get up. I have a bunch of fish tanks and its been raining every day. You'd think there'd be enough humidity, but it's just that chronic dryness like I don't sweat and my eyes. The idea of flushing my sinuses sounds like a good one. I have to go to the drug store tomorrow, so I can pick something up until I can get into a bigger town this weekend and get what I want. Thanks for all your tips. I can get that hot mustard, I used to have some wasabi, which is just really hot. With my throat having thrush, I'm afraid to drink too much hot stuff, even the tea because the medicine--nystatin liquid, coats the throat and I don't want to wash it off or anything. It's a mess. I think the sinuses got real bad from the nystatin or the thrush, but it started after being on the nystatin. Thanks again, you are all lifesavers and I hope you are all doing well as can be.
