    Dr.Shoemaker uses Rifampin for a month. I have no experience with this AB.
    Diflucan spray for a few months. 2-3 sprays in each nostril. I want to make the spray at home. 100 mg Diflucan in 500 ml of distilled water, I guess.

    Saw my doc today and told him that i have been on doxy and nystatin and also used nystatin as a sinus rinse for last 4 days, not alot of improvement. I also said how my blood pressure has been up which he said can happen. He seems to think its bacterial as my sinuses cleared up a few months ago on clarithromycin, so we are going down that line again and also said to stay on doxy. If things dont get better then i will see him again and then do a swab. Last time on these abx it took about 3 days to start to feel improvement and full 2 weeks to knock it on its head. But he did say these infections are more likely as im immune deficient, also showed him my last Bond uni nk function study results which were very low, so he wasnt suprised of me getting infections like this. Time will tell.

    cheers!!!

    Yes, I tried it before I had the irrigator and it had no effect on my sinus infections

    I also have a Grosan nasal irrigator and when I have an active infection I either add a bit of nystatin powder to the salt solution or tiny--and I mean tiny--bit of Young Living Oils oregano oil to the solution.

    It does help me a lot. I think taken topically like this it is more effective for the sinuses than swallowed. I mention the brand I use as different brands are different strengths. It comes in a dropper bottle and I invert the bottle against a finger (much less than drop) and swirl the finger in the solution. If you get too much it burns a lot. :D

    Chronic nasal congestion many many years ago lead me to try to control it with OTC meds.which i had become immune to.....and the ENT dr just said I'd haven to get used to sinus drainage as there was nothing abnormal. I knew it wasn't normal and it was correlating to extreme fatigue which was getting worse...which made the Drs mad that I was attempting to "diagnose" myself by trying to bring the correlation to their attention.

    Researching alternative medicine books led me to self diagnose as Candida overgrowth and CFS. When I started following the Candida diet and CFS diets..virtually the same, I began to get better over the next year. When I stopped going to MDs, I got better and better. The sinus congestion for me was clearly due to leaky gut syndrome.

    I've never been that sick again...not in that way. Now when I can tell my ph or Candida is off...by symptoms of sinus congestion, intestinal discomfort, fatigue, and this last year I had an episode where the Candida caused me to break out in rashes...a symptom I fatigued on google but new to me....anyway..when I know I am at the stage..usually from eating too many carbs and sugars, caffeine etc, I have homeopathic suppositories from Germany I get online, as well as a new discovery.. Systolic AMD...along with my usual probiotics, and getting back on my Candida diet.

    I am SO sorry...I meant to type Syntol AMD...must be the auto correct! 500 mg. made by Arthur Andrew Medicals. I haven't had a problem with full blown Candida since I started. It helped me get over a major case, and now when I'm having beginning Candida symptoms, such as sinus drainage due to the leaky gut syndrome that the Candida causes by making the o tests all wall permeable to allow food to pass I to blood stream, thereby causing a hits mine reaction, I take some of these along with Caprylic Acid tablets...specifically Caprystatin by Ecological Formulas..it has magnesium added....and it gets better. I also use Sanum brand Pleo Albicans 3X rectal suppositories which are homeopathics from Germany that works wonders, but they are pricey and I rarely have to use them since I started the Syntol AMD. Prices vary greatly on the Syntol and everything so I shop around and buy the 360 capsules for $130 which seems to be best price right now.

    My congestion cleared up as soon as I got the leaky gut healed by changing my diet to not feed the Candida yeast overgrowth. What a relief. Has been working for over 20 yrs now, except for minor relapses when I eat too many sweets for too long.
