    Have to really be careful with things like eucalyptus, menthol, camphor, eugenol if you have MCS. Those kinds of substances can really be nasty and trigger reactions.

    I use Alkalol occasionally, but I don't find it a great help. For a short time my sinuses feel a little more open, but it doesn't last long.

    I've sent off for a bottle to try it - will post about how I get on.

    Just got my bottle and checked with the manufacturer that the 'caramel colouring' doesn't contain gluten, and they confirm that it doesn't. :thumbsup:

    NAC and proteolytic enzymes will thin the mucus.

    I used this for a year or so. I'd say it helped to a very mild degree.

    Doesn't sound very promising! It's quite expensive.

    Still, it's early days experimenting with this stuff for me - I'll just give it a go.
