Hi Jaimee, have you consulted your physician yet? There are over the counter drugs available, either a nasal spray or regular tablets.

Wishing you best health!

I think that in every situation like this it is better to consult with a doctor instead of forums... But still there exist a good website, where it is possible to find some answers: http://motherhow.com/9-weeks-pregnant/

Hi Sinusitis can develop at any point during the first, second, or third trimester of pregnancy. This is triggered by a bacterial, fungal or viral infection during the pregnancy. But taking medications during pregnancy is a matter of concern. There are some OTC medications available that play safely to pregnant women. Generally, Cough suppressant, decongestant, expectorants, antihistamines are safer for pregnant. Aside, you may try out some home remedies like gargling warm water with salt, that would alleviate the itchy running nose, increasing immune system by eating nutritious food, sleeping with one more pillow to elevate the head, so that mucus formation could be stopped. If you have a sinus headache or facial pain, try out with a hot pack warmentation on the affected area to get relieved from the discomfort.If nothing else works out better consult your doctor for immediate relief.

Hello, my dear. I’m sorry for you. I know how bad Sinus Infections While Pregnant is. Medications used to treat acute sinus infections include cefprozil (Cefzil) and amoxicillin-clavulanate. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is also regarded as safe to use during pregnancy for pain relief and/or headaches. There are many safe home remedies you can use to alleviate your symptoms and recover from a sinus infection. Drink plenty of fluids such as water, broth, and citrus juice. Use saline nasal irrigation or saline nose drops. Use a humidifier at night. Getting plenty of sleep as this will help your immune system fight the infection.

Hi dear. I had a sinus infection about a month ago (They're nasty I know) and I got rid of it by taking Sodium Ascorbate (Or Ascorbic Acid it’s also called I think) it’s a form of vitamin C, and is the purest most concentrated form your body can absorb, it works wonders with anything. We get it in powder form and basically when you're that sick you take it a teaspoon at a time to bowel tolerance - as unpleasant as it sounds... It’s like morphine in the theory that with morphine the more pain you’re in the higher dosage your body can tolerate, same with this, the sicker you are the more you need to take, although unlike morphine if you take too much it doesn't kill you, it’s not bad for you at all. If you take a teaspoon every few hours which is what I do it seems to be OK and not affect your bowel. I recommend taking it in fruit juice or something because it tastes gross like salt otherwise you can consult with Lotus Clinic in Ukraine as I did and trust me it helps.

Hello my dear. I’m sorry for you. I know how bad Sinus Infections While Pregnant is. Sinus Infections is so annoying and causes severe headache this leads to poor sleep and lack of concentration. 3 years ago, during my pregnancy I suffered from Sinus Infections. I knew that Sinus Infections is so hard. I visited a specialist doctor and advised me with Medications. He used to treat acute sinus infections include with cefprozil (Cefzil) and amoxicillin-clavulanate. Acetaminophen which is regarded as safe to use during pregnancy for pain relief and/or headaches. He also recommended me some safe home remedies which I can use to alleviate my symptoms and recover from a sinus infection. I Drank plenty of fluids such as water, broth, and citrus juice. I used saline nasal irrigation or saline nose drops. Also, I got plenty of sleep as this will help my immune system fight the infection. Good luck and I wish you speed recovery.

Hey. Sinus Infections during Pregnancy has to be treated quickly. While I was pregnant, I had Sinus Infections. I had a headache for long hours per day. I sometimes had a fewer and stuffy nose. I suffered from these for long weeks and I was afraid to have any medication which may harm my baby. so, I decided to search for natural remedies like using a humidifier at night and elevating my head with a couple of pillows while lying down. It made me breathe easier. Sometimes headache became so hard, I used a cold pack on my forehead
