But after awhile you get used to it and you relax and it feels good.
Warm water,and a salt baking soda mix . Rinse do not inhale.
I used a Netti pot until I added warm water on a cold morning and it went *tink*.
then I moved to the Neil med bottle.
The salt B-soda is premixed and in sealed packages. It really does help.
A constant cough from the infection was worse than the headaches.
I hope you feel better soon too.
It takes a while to get used to and for it to work.
I also use it after a dusty job, like mowing. But now I wear a face mask to avoid the worst of it.
