I never had a problem before, then I bought a boat. It would seem after a trip out, I would store half the lake in my sinus. Then, trip out the following days. Now several years later, still have the same issue, but now add I have perioitic burning pain and bad odor from my sinus are. Any Thoughts.

  • Boats get wet, wet breeds fungus, breathing fungus effects sinuses.

  • My drt has alot of allergies...and sinus problems...maybe try a decongestant before you go on the boat...during and after...she takes a presc. decong. daily and that, along with her allergy pill...she has not had a sinus infection since..she uses the decong. regularly...her allergist explained that once sinus passages get clogged,,then infection is easy to happen. Are you taking allergy medication/decongestant?

  • I'm the suffer--I haven't been on the lake in a while. Every time I go in they give me a bottle of clariton and an antibytic (sp?). Well I'm still suffering with pain and I can't stand the drainage or smell.

  • Didn't someone on this board have Chlamydia or Candida of the sinus?
