How can I get rid of a colony of bacteria that has been camping in my nasopharnyx for better then a year now? Sinupulse irrigation of nose and sinus don't reach this area - throat irrigation doesn't bother it either. Every couple of months have to go on antibiotics to clear adjacent areas where spill over from the colony occurs.
Cpap set at level 9 unable to force air through the barrier. Pulse nasal/sinus irrigation only effective means of removing some of the blockage.
The natural salinity of my nasal secretions adds to the discomfort. I do have a tendency to pick at the scabs because they itch and annoy me because they look and feel like boogers. I can actually see where the skin is sepparated when I look in the mirror. This problem has been going on for many years and I was wondering if there is anything to be done about it. It drives me nuts! I hope someone out there can help.
He also warned me that it might come out on its own in between -- which is what happened. I have been doing the Nasal irrigation with NetiPot 3 to 4 times a day and that seems to have helped a lot. I have been very careful and have avoided blowing my nose for the first 1 week, however much i wanted to. Today, shortly after my nasal irrigation, I gently blew my nose and out came I think the Stent and some gunk with that. I am so relieved.
I'm at the very tail end of a cold and wonder if this is something that took hold while my resistance was down from that. Tonight I did a nasal irrigation (Neti pot) and then a sinus flood (lay on your bed with your head over the edge and fill your nostrils with colloidal silver - it puts the colloidal silver in touch with that entire area to kill off any bacteria that are there) and then did a second nasal irrigation again. I'm also taking colloidal silver internally.
