On Call with Dr. Sandy: Medical Myths Part III
Dr.Sandy As a physician with a busy practice, I�m surprised that the same medical myths seem to persist year after year. That�s why I�m dedicating a series of posts to debunking some of these once and for all!

Medical Myth 3: Antihistamines can help sinus infections.
Reality: Antihistamines (like those found in NyQuil or Claritin) dry up nasal secretions. That might sound like it would help a sinus infection, but in fact it can make it harder to clear up. Instead, try a decongestant, like Sudafed. Flushing out your nasal passages with a saline solution (containing water and iodine-free salt) can also help open up the nasal passages so your sinuses can drain. Do this by using a neti pot or an OTC product like NeilMed Sinus Rinse (www.neilmed.com)
