I am so sick - cold going full blast now



  • I use a saline spray and a steroid inhaler to keep the nasal passageway clear and got less infections. I have had my deviated septum repaired and have had less infections since then but still use saline spray and steroid inhaler. I hope you start feeling better soon. Charry

  • Cathie,

    For me, I am amazed how well the eucalyptus oil cleans me out. My septum is so deviated (huge as my ENT calls it), it is affecting both nostrils - the right more so. So if my allergies or a cold comes up, I get plugged pretty fast and hard. I wake up most mornings plugged up, and too coughing until I clear all that junk out of there. I hope it helps you woman!!!

    As Charry posted below, my ENT commented on. "Once you get that fixed, you will breathe better, will have less issues (effects) from allergies and colds. Less infections as well." Thanks Charry for showing me proof of that statement! Mine was caused by 3 different "broken nose" occasions! :) *HUGZ* that you're feeling better today Cathie.
