The Netty Pot

It is the best device ever invented. If your sinuses are stopped up, or you are having a lot of drainage, the Netty Pot is a real lifesaver. It suggests you use it once a day, but when you have excessive drainage, you may want to use it every couple of hours. It will not harm anything, and it will keep the allergens washed out of your nasal passages. It is great for headaches and when the sinuses in your cheek areas are hurting you. Use warmed sterile water for this process.

Change your Pillow Case and Shower
