Sinus infection, is an issue around the world, and usually is caused due to the inflammation and swelling of sinuses. Usually, this condition blocks sinuses with fluid, and creates an adequate environment for bacteria, which then brings nasal congestion and pain. People usually use antibiotics to solve such a problem. Unfortunately, antibiotics are not the best solution as they can lead to different side effects. Dr. Mas Takashima, director of the Sinus Center at Baylor College of Medicine, has presented a new solution to sinus infection. Baby shampoo sinus irrigations and probiotic nasal rinses is what his treatment include. He claims that baby shampoo irrigation will cleanse the nasal cavity with a surfactant as it breaks down the oily layers which prevent the elimination of bad bacteria. Baby shampoo can penetrate this barrier, unlike saline irrigation formulas.
Here’s what you have to do:
Combine ½ teaspoon of baby shampoo and 8 ounces of saline. Next, in a cup of 8 ounces of boiled add a teaspoon of the mixture and ½ teaspoon of baby shampoo. Finally, you should soak an infant nasal bulb or a rubber ear bulb syringe in this solution, and then flush the nostrils.
