I have a sore throat and bad sinus infection. What can I do to help. At home remedies

If you have had the sinus infection for more than a week you should see a doctor. If not, they make something called sinus rinse, you will need a bottle or a neti pot and the packets of solution. You mix the contents of the packet with distilled water and rinse your sinuses out (yes put the water up your nose) it is uncomfortable but it really does help.

For a sore throat you can gargle with Salt water. Mix a teaspoon of salt into a cup of warm water and take it into your mouth, do not swallow it! Hold your head back and gargle so it bubbles in the back of your throat.

Also a hot shower will help clear your sinuses.

I hope this helps and sorry you are feeling bad.

I agree with SherryA...if you do have a sinus infection, no home remedy will cure it. You will need to see a doctor for an antibiotic.

Feel better soon!

The best at home remedy is to go to the phone, pick it up, dial your doctor and make an appointment.

NOTHING IN YOUR HOUSE will cure you.

i also had a sore throat too. All I did was not talking so much. Also don't scream because that will make it worse. Also gargle warm salt water. Don't forget to rest! If that doesn't work, then go to the doctors. They will give you a special medicine. HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER!
