Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having sinus infection & draining into throat & soreness is suggestive of a condition called post nasal drip. It is the drainage of secretions from the nose or sinuses down the back of the throat. Its most common causes are: Flu, allergies,cold,Sinus infection or sinusitis . It is usually caused by an underlying rhinitis (inflammation of lining of the inside of your nose) and/or sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavities within the facial bones that surround your nose).

Following is recommended for you:

  • Keeping a humidifier running in your room or using an over-the-counter salt-water spray (inhaled through the nose) five or six times a day can provide dramatic relief.
  • Pour a 1/2 to a whole teaspoon of liquid diphenhydramine syrup into small medicine cup and gargle with it. Try to keep the syrup towards the back of your throat for as long as you can.
  • Gargling with lukewarm saline water is one of the best remedies.
  • Afrin is a brand of nasal spray used to ease nasal congestion that is available over-the-counter.The generic name for this medication is Oxymetazoline hydrochloride.

    All this will help you greatly.
