Use artificial tears: Reddening and irritation are often related to drying of the eyes. Prolonged computer work can also cause it as the blink rate goes down. Take a break every hour or two. Use artificial tears 3-4 times a day. Stay away from Visine or other decongestant drops. They can make the problem worse. ...Read more

Dry eyes. Can't take decongestant or antihistamine for sinus infection. Will Sinoclear serve the purpose of unclogging sinus n post nasal drip?

Decongestant?: Although antihistamine dries up the nose, decongestant does not. If the decongestant action is needed for just a few days, you may try Afrin nasal spray 2x daily for up to 5 days. A nasal steroid will likely work better if you have allergies. ...Read more

My nose is very stuffy, and my eyes are watering. Decongestants make my heart beat fast so what else can I do to get rid of this?

Need Rx: Your symptoms are consistent with allergic rhinitis. Unfortunately most OTC decongestants will give you some of the side effects you describe. You can try an OTC antihistamine without the 'D' to gain some relief. If this does not help you should discuss with your physician the possibility of allergy testing with possible initiation of prescription medication ( sprays/eye drops) ...Read more

How long it takes for chronic sinusitis to get cured.Im takin antibiotics, decongestant, nasal spray but still the horrible headache&eyes.3weeks now?

Depends: If you have an impaired immune system or anatomical obstruction at the sinus openings, antibiotic would not work too well. Also you need to be treated with the right antibiotic since abx like zpak really does not work too well in sinusitis. I think it is time for you to call the doctor again and consider getting a ct sinus scan. ...Read more
