ok so i ended up going to the doctor last night.
i started peeing blood. i have a bladder infection, both ears are infected and i have a sinus infection. they gave me antibiotics, a red pill which made my pee orange lol and tylonal. i feel really bad today still....i have been so nauseous for about 2 weeks now.

thanks you so much for all the suggestions but i will still do the netti pot and just try to get better.....♥

Thanks for writing to the forum!

Plain steam is very effective. Personally I do not feel you need to put peroxide into it. A pinch of it in water will however cause no harm.

It will do you good to drink plenty of hot fluids, take steam at least twice a day, and take over the counter antihistamines and decongestants.  
It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. If these tips do not help you then you would need to see a doctor. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
