Q.43 - When I use the sinus rinse bottle I feel searing pain in the back of my head, the top of my head, my forehead and between my eyes. Should I continue?
The pain you are experiencing is in your sinuses. Sinus Rinse should be soothing and not painful. Make sure you are following the directions carefully. The burning sensation can be caused by forgetting to put the saline mixture in the water, not dissolving the dry mixture thoroughly in the water or having the water too cold or hot. It can also occur if you have use more than one packet for the specified water quantity (in other words a hypertonic solution). If the pain persists, please discontinue the rinses and call our office for advice so we can modify the procedure for you. Or call your physician. It may be possible that you are fighting a sinus infection.
