Re: My hubby used my facial to steam his sinuses

@I am still oxox  I used to do a facial steam with a product called "Swiss Kriss"

it comes in a tablet or a flake form. You want to use the flakes, It's a herbal mixture that you put into the water.

There's peppermint in it that is very refreshing. And his skin will look great too☺️!


My sinuses always felt renewed after I would do this. Malibu

Hope it helps your DH.

You name it I tried everything for mine. My doctor told me to use Sovereign Silver nasal spray. It's the only thing I have found that helps. 

It also helped DH. The pollen around here is horrible. DH was outside pulling weeds. Now his nose is stopped up or running, his eyes are all red & running. He keeps coughing & sneezing. 

DH said the weather guy said the Pollen was off the charts.

@I am still oxox My ENT actually recommended I do that for my chronic sinus infections.  Of course, I was using the medications prescribed for me, but the steam was very helpful in promoting drainage and comfort.  I still do it.

If my dog doesn't like you, neither do I.

He might consider nasal rinsing.  It's inexpensive and effective.  I had nasal polyps removed a few years ago.  At first, following my surgery, my ENT had me rinsing several times a day.  Now it's just twice daily, first thing in the AM and right before bed.  I use a NeilMed bottle with the saline packets and have a prescription steroid to add to it, from a compounding pharmacy. If your husband decides to try nasal rinsing be sure he never uses tap water. Either buy distilled or boil and cool down your own. Replace the bottle every three months.

Re: My hubby used my facial to steam his sinuses

Unless I have a cold, I hardly ever have one, I never had nasal congestion till 3 years ago this past Christmas.  At least every other night, I have to rinse out my sinuses with a Netti Pot and Xylitol.  If I don't, I can't breathe at night.  It's only when I lay down at night.    I went to an ENT, he numbed my nasal area and ran a tube up my nose.  Said he saw nothing.  Everything looked fine :/  Netti Pots work great and are nonaddictive.  There is also the more common saline solution.  They both work the same.

@Janey2

 

Everyone has a nose.  Most everyone suffers from time to time (or all the time) from nasal congestion and sinus issues.  If someone here feels like they are helping others with their experiences, more power to her.  If you aren't interested in some sage advice, why question it?  Just please move on to another thread.

Re: My hubby used my facial to steam his sinuses

I suffer from allergies all year long and use Flonase - the generic prescription one is much cheaper than the over the counter name brand.  Had sinus surgery years ago and one of the things the ENT had me do was rinse my sinuses after surgery.  I may do that again.  Some great suggestions here too.
