dorit: The saying translates to sinusitis was your middle name. :) Same idea, just people here say middle instead of second!
Stutterbug (and Maureen): you might want to try a nettipot. I have really bad allergies and I started using one last spring. I haven't used it this winter, but I'll probably go back it it again when my allergies get bad. It's kind of gross, but basically you pour a warm saline solution through your nose. It goes through your sinus cavities and comes out the other nostril. It feels like you just breathed in a giant noseful of water in a swimming pool, but it's really supposed to help clear out the sinuses. It also helps to wash out allergens or other things that are sitting there inside your nose.
I have a nutty pot too - works well.
