It is often possible to distinguish one type of sinusitis from another. For instance, allergic rhinitis often occurs seasonally and may relate to the pollen count in the spring and fall, or occurs when a dusty or contaminated home heating system starts up in the autumn. Both allergic sinusitis and viral sinusitis are characterized by a thin, watery nasal or postnasal discharge. The associated sinus congestion may impede adequate aeration of the sinuses, ultimately leading to a bacterial infection, characterized by yellowish or greenish nasal discharge, fever, malaise, etc.
I have been using milk of magnesia on my face as a mask most mornings, and it really works! I just bought a big bottle of phillips brand and apply a thin mask that I leave on for about 10-15 minutes. I can see a big difference if I miss a few mornings of not doing it. Thanks for all the other suggestions, these are great. I’ve battled acne since I was a teenager (so roughly half my life) and after years of dermatologists, countless medications and 1 unsuccessful summer of accutane, I finally have clearer skin thanks to the more holistic methods!
Keep up the beekeeping! The world needs you! As far as honey in your coffee goes, technically it could cause a reaction in your skin. However, what I see personally, as well as what I see in my clinic, is a bit different. My recommendation is to avoid topical and ingested honey, propolis, and beeswax until the rash is completely gone and your skin returns completely to normal. Then, once your skin is no longer inflamed, you can try adding honey back into your diet. If it causes itching, stop ingestion. But if you have no reaction, you should be able to consume it in small amounts. You should continue to avoid topical use of honey, propolis and beeswax indefinitely and I would avoid internal consumption of propolis and beeswax as well (so don’t chew honeycomb, either). Report back if all goes well – I like to hear success stories!
