Q.1291 - I have dark circles under my eyes that will not go away. I heard the sinus rinse can help with that. When I use it, it doesn't drain to the other nostril. My nose does not seem to be too congested but if it turns out to be, should I still use the sinus rinse? Will it help with my dark circles?

NeilMed Sinus Rinse or any nasal rinse cannot help for the circles under the eyes to our knowledge. At the same time we have heard this from many customers and some beauticians. As a doctor, I am not able to put it together that how it would help. To answer your other question, if it
does not drain into other nostril, you need to lean forward as shown in the photos and squeeze gently till it drains from the other nostril.
Please give a good try and see what happens. Our staff can hold on the telephone line and guide you at the time of the rinsing so please call us.
Since nasal rinsing does help nasal and sinus symptoms, try it for a month and see what results you find and let me now.

Steaming should help. Boil some water on the stove and sit at the table tntpiug your head over the pan, make sure to cover your head with a towel. The steam will break up the mucus in your sinuses. At night use vicks vapo-rub and sleep kinda sitting up. I've found that tylenol cold helps immensely. Depending on the severity of your sinus infection and your doctor, antibiotics may be called for. If you can't sleep, try tylenol p.m. It will help with the sleeplessness while helping with the sinus pain. I hope this helps you a little and I hope you feel better.
