I am happy that my ENT had me add baby shampoo to the sinus rinses to try to break through biofilms. She also put me on the antibiotic mentioned in this article. In addition to being an antibiotic, it also has anti-inflammatory effects. At lease she is current with the research

Really informative, Roxy, as I am a chronic sinusitis "manager." Tell me about the baby shampoo -- it doesn't irritate your sinuses? How much do you add?
