Doesn't it just figure. Just days after the "now don't take any meds without asking, especially antihistamines" talk with Nurse, my nose starts running like a faucet, my face swells and my teeth ache. Sinus infection? Great.

I've spent the day walking around with a roll of TP in hand, pieces of it shoved up my nostrils like some hideous face tampons because seriously, its that bad. The minute I stop blowing, drips of snot litter my path. Gross. I know.

I know I can take advil or tylenol or aleve, but I can't remember which one. I have an email into Nurse. In the meantime, any advice?

Update: a steaming hot shower helps. Definitely helps.

I just had that same conversation with my RE. You can take Tylenol. That's the only one of the 3 you can have. I'm betting you can get confirmation on that from Dr. Google. :)

Tylenol is the one to take. They don't like you taking anti-inflammatories (Advil, Aleve, etc.) because it can mess with your lining.
I saw your comment at Millie's and followed you over here. My DH is a childhood cancer survivor- my blog is password-protected, but if you email me, I'm happy to give you access. Sounds like we may have a lot in common.

I woke up at 4:00 this morning with the mucus factory cranked on high. By 6:00, the floor was littered with used Kleenex. Gross? Yeah, you and me both, lady! Just love allergy season! Hang in there!
