    Do you smoke???. When I was in my wreck I smashed my eye socket down into my sinuses and got to be careful around groups of smokers and dusty stuff.

    No smoking. I did a bunck of sanding/grinding/welding last week though and that may have helped cause it. I also have kids in daycare/school and they bring home every illness known to man. I wouldn't be surprised of they came home with plague.

    Tylenol, sudafed and tea so far, but if it gets worse I may have to breakdown and go see the doc.

    Garlic can help with bacterial infections, don't cook it though, that deactivates the active chemical in it. Peppermint is a natural source of menthol, which is a decongestant. Horseradish can help with sinus relief as well. Ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory and pain reliever (but don't use it if you have a fever).

    Thanks, the tea that I'm drinking is peppermint. Smells a little ghey, but it works wonders.

    Ever had a cold? Then you've had a sinus infection :D

    Something like 75% of colds are cause by a "rhinovirus" which basically infects your nose, and lungs. Becuase the virus infects your nose, more blood is brought to it to deliver white blood cells to clean the infection out, but that also stimulates your nose to mass produce snot (aka, runny nose) and the coughing part comes into play when the virus gets into your lungs, which causes the same mass production of mucus down there, which you cough to get out, at least until you've coughed so much that you make your throat sore, and cough becuase its sore, lol
