What do u recommend?
Doctor: Dr. Ravoof, Doctor replied 6 months ago

Dear customer,

Thank you for replying.

In addition to ibuprofen, you should also take Tylenol. The combination of Tylenol and ibuprofen will be more effective and will relieve your pain. You should also apply a warm compress with a warm, wet washcloth across your forehead, eyes, and cheeks and this will ease the swelling and pain. Using a humidifier will also help.

Take care.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
