Today was my third trip in the last month to the doctor’s office for the sinus infection that is stubbornly holding on. As the doctor was examining my ears, my sinuses, and my throat, she was in shock over how I still had the same amount of fluid, the same amount of inflammation, and the same amount of drainage into my throat as I did when I went to see her two antibiotics ago.
Instead of putting me on a third round of antibiotics, she decided to put me on an 8-day course of prednisone and to send me for a CAT scan of my sinuses with contrast and she was going to mark the order STAT so that it would be scheduled this week while I am off of work.
I finally broke down and requested a week off of work so that I could try and get my body built back up and could hopefully get enough rest to get better. I hope that the combination of the prednisone and the time off will be what I need.
Wednesday I am also scheduled to go to the ENT doctor to see what he has to say.
The remedy that we found worked the most was one that utilizes good old apple cider vinegar. There are several ways you can use the apple cider vinegar to get rid of your sinus infection and even prevent a sinus infection from happening. This is one of the most popular and one of the most frequently used remedies.
Apple cider vinegar works because it thins out the mucus that generally causes the infection. To use the apple cider vinegar sinus infection home remedy you can drink 1/8-¼ of a cup of apple cider vinegar with 16 ounces of water throughout the day. Continue drinking this beverage for a few days to completely rid yourself of the sinus infection.
