Don't want to read and run, but don't have an answer I'm afraid! The only thing I can think of that might be safe is melting some Vicks in hot water then inhaling the steam. Not sure though so I hope someone else can help you!
Keep an eye on the sinusitis though as it can require antibiotics if the little passages in your face become infected, and the more severe it is, the stronger the antibiotics required. While there would of course be antibiotics suitable for BF, some can give you and LO a case of the runs and/or thrush so better to go to your dr asap if its not getting better very quickly xx
Just go to your GP and ask for antibiotics. My sinusitis never goes by itself and its horrendous so I just go to GP and never have much problem getting some. Is your snot thick and green and do you have a horrid taste in your mouth? If so, just go to the docs as its infected and you need antiBs anyway.
Yes, I cured my sinus infections by flushing my sinuses with breatmilk. It is antibacterial (against bad bacteria but promotes helpful bacteria) and anti-inflammatory. I just put 2 oz of breastmilk in my neti pot and flushed 3 times a day for 2 days. I also drank plenty of hot tea with lemon & honey(mother's milk fenugreek and earl gray) and spicy chicken soup with garlic and cheyenne pepper. I figured, if it can treat conjunctivitis, why not sinusitus? It totally worked! The best part: NO ANTIBIOTICS!! YAY!!
