I think it's time to try out my neti pot.
My sinuses continue to feel congested, maybe it's from the Remicade because they asked if I had been experiencing cold symptoms. I had had a bad cold, but it cleared up pretty quick except for now this lingering sinus stuff. I don't want it to turn into an infection.
So, any advice from anyone who has tried a neti pot? I expect it's a pretty messy process, but I also hear they do a good job of clearing things out.
