Judy, I can relate....maybe hold off on doing the irrigation too often, maybe a decongestant like Sudafed and a spray at night before you go to bed so you can breathe and keep the area as
open as possible to drain.
The Z pack helped me after a few days, the sinus infection I had this time was different than any others..when I blew, it felt like glass shards coming out..horrific!\
Do also take Tylenol to help with the pain.
A warm cloth over your face on the sinus areas can help as well.
Drink enough fluids.
Make sure you DO NOT take any antihistamines in any products...it'll just prolong your suffering.
Get well soon,
