Default Does the dust here bugger up your sinuses?

Yeah, I think it does....I posted the same thing in 2008.

http://britishexpats.com/forum/showt...ighlight=sinus

I wasn't really sure what the consensus was, but a week in and I reckon the AC and the dust have done my sinuses in again. I feel bloody awful and have a headache and stuffy nose. I had just been to see the ENT in the UK before I came and he said I need an operation to a) straighten my crooked beak to improve airflow and b) shrink my turbinates (mmm, nice)

yes - I make enough chunky nuts to feed a small squirrel

seriously though, yes it's a nightmare. saline spray and steam every night helps. as does lots of holidays away from here

It gets pretty unpleasant in the summer if you or your children suffer from anything asthma related.

Me, whinge? Get outta town.

I've been to the doc today. He gave me a pile of medication, half of which went straight in the bin. I've got some kind of infection, I know that much. It took 3 hours to get sorted with a few tablets and a blood test (which I'm having tomorrow). I forgot how infuriating the administration process can be here.

I'm in Oman, and here it's pretty bad all year around for asthma except Nov/Dec (because Jan onwards is hayfever season)

Yup, for sure. Am on daily allergy tabs (Lorine) and anti itch eye drops.

Yeah especially when the ac's go back on again, should get them all cleaned first. Get a nettie pot and some saline nasal spray and flush it all out. I also use antihistamines to stop the sneezing reactions.
