Soar throat from sinusitis or allergies. How do I get rid of it?

I have the soarest throat ever from all the drainage from either sinusitis or allergies (it just started raining everyday, which can trigger them for me). My tonsils are really swollen but just red, they don't have white spots. I have a headache, in the front of my head, and i'm tired a hell. No fever or anything.

I can deal with all of it, just this soar throat is awful. It's just so dry like I don't wanna talk or sleep or anything.

Is there anything that can relieve my soar throat. I gargled with listerine and I've heard hot salt water can help but is there anything else?
I don't really want to numb the throat I want to make the soreness heal quicker.

And If you don't want to answer the question, then don't post anything. Thanks.

What causes the sore throat is mucus draining down the back of it. During allergy season, allergens cause a histamine reaction in your head, causing increased mucus production....leading to sinusitis. What you need to do is to thin the mucus or get rid of it all together. To thin the mucus, try a product containing guaifenesin (ie Mucinex). To decrease the mucus, take an OTC antihistamine such as Allevert, Claritin, Benedryl, ect. To dry up the mucus that is already there, get something with a decongestant like Pseudoephedrine or Phenylephrine (Sudafed). I, personally take Claritin-D 24hr every day when I wake up during allergy season when it gets bad. And I take a 25mg Benedryl before I lay down to sleep (they make me sleepy). Hope this helps!  (+ info)

How do i get the dried up blood out of my nose after having Endoscopic Sinusitis Surgery?

I had Endoscopic Sinusitis surgery done on Thursday. The surgery went well and i had my post-op visit yesterday to have the tubes removed. I was told i couldn't sneeze through my nose or blow my nose or really do anything to my nose. What do you think the easiest way is to try and get a little of the snot and blood out of my nose?

If you're not supposed to blow it or sneeze through it, don't put anything up there, for sure.

Try heating up a wet wash cloth in the microwave and setting it on your face and inhaling the steam.

Gargling with warm salt water can help hydrate the sinuses and prevent complications.

Best of luck.  (+ info)

What tests and treatments do they do for goiters/thyroid disordors/sinusitis?

I possibly might 1 of the 3, my head always hurts and my doctor said something about my neck being big or something. I just got a blood test for thyroid disordor and x-ray for sinusitis.

Any other tests they could do to me? What would be the treatments?

you basically have the primary diagnostics already. that blood test you had identifies if you have thyroid hormone problem and as youve mentioned xray if you have sinus congestions.

if all of that tests results comes up normal. additional diagnostics that can be done would be thyroid ultrasound. this detects if you have thyroid enlargement (presence of mass). if that turns positive then fine needle biopsy is suggested.

hope this helps :)  (+ info)

I have Asthma, Rhinitis and Sinusitis; are there any herbal remedies to unblock my sinuses?

Having asthma is a pain in the butt enough, but I also have sinusitis and rhinitis; my sinuses are clogged all the time and I can barely breathe through my nose. It really sucks having to breathe loudly through one nostril or to mouth-breathe and I really hate side effects of my medications, does anyone happen to know any natural or herbal remedies for rhinitis and sinusitis?

My brother used to have the same problems as you!

Anyway, if you have asthma, you don't want to use herbal remedies, because you could be allergic to the herbs and cause yourself even worse problems.

Try salt water rinsing (sniffing up luke warm salt water through your nose and letting it drain through your sinuses). This is a natural way to clear them out with no side effects. My brother got addicted to it! You can also take steamy showers and drink warm liquids. Spicey food will help too. If you have a lot of thick mucus, try taking Mucinex. There are NO side effects, and it will thin your secretions so that they will drain more easily.  (+ info)

Is there an over the counter medicine for sinusitis?

I do not have a doctor so I cannot get a prescription for Augmentin or anything like it. I want to know if anybody knows of an alternative to treat sinusitis without a prescription.
