Everytime I get into a routine of going to swimming, I develop some kind of ear/sinus infection that lingers on for DAYS. DAYS! I don't know if I'm getting these from kid germs or what, but it's killing me! I went swimming on Monday - this infection started Saturday evening, I just felt awful, run down and sore throat. It morphed into ear/sinus pressure, runny nose, post nasal drip... ugh! Before kids I never got sick. The last time I was at the sick doctor was 4 years ago! I opted to skip swimming today after doing some research that it makes it worse. Understandable.
Since I am nursing, I don't want to take much. Last night I tried raw garlic after doing some research on that, and my breath still smells AWFUL! It tasted so, so badly. I was chasing it with cranberry juice and water. I also picked up some homeopathic medicine at the drugstore. The worst is my ear/head congestion. Swimming has been going so well since that coffee day and I just love going. Such a bummer to have to miss! Do you have any home remedies? I might go to the doctor today, I can't be sick for Christmas!
