Oh and yeah, can't taste anything. Nothing.If you have discolored mucus then yes they're right you have a bacteria infection in your sinus that needs antibiotics.
Some things that can help with symptoms however. Sudafed Its the only medicine left that didn't change their medicine ingredients when the FDA was making changes because people abusing cold meds to make meth. Anyways Sudafed can only be gotten from your pharmacy and I think you can only get up to 4 boxes.
Mucinex will help dry out your sinus and the mucus and there is always good old Vic vapor rub.
Suck on some peppermint before you eat anything. It'll help with being able to taste your food. Also put drop a peppermint in your hot tea. It'll feel good going down. Drink lots of WARM liquids. It'll help prevent coughing if you are.
I hope you feel better soon!! Don't wait too long to get to a doc. Sinus infections have a nasty way of moving down into your chest.
Lots of rest for you! Or try to!
Feel better soon!
Sudefed does nothing for me
I went to dr yesterday and no sinus infection had developed. It's just i'm feeling worse today but when i blow my faucet it's clear.
