Post Surf


The arrow in the x-ray above is pointing to the fluid build up in the sinus cavity due to sinus infection.

The result of surfing  in storm run off with a high bacteria content.

It should clear up in ten days or so without antibiotics and provided there is no re-exposure to the run off.

A neti pot can sometimes help re-leave the symptoms.

You can avoid the whole deal by staying out of the water for a few days.

Y'know, this run-off problem you have makes me glad to be over here.

Go to the health food store and get a nasal spray that contains grapefruit seed extract. The stuff works when the neti pot doesn't. Believe me. Do it!
