I have had problems with sinuses since using e-cigarettes 12 months ago. I think I am allergic to propylene.

After dental treatment with implants I developed a sinus infection and still have a horrible taste in my mouth when I wake up in morning.

A dog bit my face, puncturing the bridge of my nose. I have a sinus infection as a result because bacteria invaded; I also had a skin rash as a result. It's the worst injury ever since I may also have nerve damage and pain in the area where the canine caused a deep puncture wound. I am miserable.

A bit of Vicks VapoRub in (a cup or bowl of) hot water, with a towel over the head like a tent, and breathe through nose.
