Points -  Ask the Doctor

Q: I have been diagnosed with a staph infection in my sinus cavity, and conventional medicine has not very helpful. Is there anything I can do to get my sinuses functioning normally again?

A: A staph infection is a serious condition that requires attention because Staphylococcus aureus, the most common virus residing on our skin, is often the most resistant and hardest to deal with. There are several traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) herbal products and prescriptions that have shown to be effective in inhibiting staph infections. Consult a licensed practitioner to determine which one can best suit your specific condition.

I also suggest a regular steam inhalation therapy with baking soda. This is to soften and moisten the tissues within the sinuses to prevent further damage. This is how you do it: add two table spoons of common baking soda into a pot of boiling water (being careful not to burn). Cover up and place your head over the pot at a comfortable and safe distance and inhale the steam.
