Just ran across this site trying to understand some painful sinus and tooth pain I experience infrequently. Very sudden onset lasting about 45 minutes - - has occurred twice after long bike rides at the beach followed by a large serving of Dreyer's ice cream! I wasn't sure if it was the physical activity, the beach weather, or what. Now I am wondering if the ice cream has anything to do with it. Next time - - NO ICE CREAM.

When i read about the link between ice cream and throat infections i was not surprised because i currently have a PAINFUL throat infection that i've had on and off since last summer. whenever i started having symptoms my mom would buy me a frosty from wendy's and this time a shake from steak n' shake. every time the infections have gotten so much worse after consumption of the ice cream. i've come to the conclusion that milk is horrible for the sore throat too.

I didn't realise this until just a few hours ago, but 3 days ago i went to Cold Stone Creamery and brought home ice cream for myself, my little sister & brother, and my dad. My mom was the only one who didn't want any ice cream. That was last friday night. On Sunday, my brother, sister, dad, and myself all got sick & we've been sick since (today is tuesday). My mom is doing just fine. Coincidence?

I find this very weird, but after reading this I have to admit it must be true. I've had extreme sinus pressure for 4 days now and I did finish of some Haggen Dazs Ice cream the night before this all started. Too weird.

I've had reoccurring sinus infection for 1 1/2 years. After pigging out on two "organic" choc./vanilla ice cream bars, I got another, big-time infection the very next day. Milk and dairy have always been tied to more mucus production. Add the immune-lowering sugars and the cilia-slowing coldness, and you got problems!

I also experienced the same thing after eating ice cream however; I had ice cream from our local Rite-Aid. So I can definitely relate to others who have consumed ice cream or milk based products and later develop a sinus infection or flu like symptoms.

I have to agree about the link between dairy product and sinus infections. I normally stay away from milk products, but I do eat cheese and do not have any problems at all. For me it's when I have ice cream or milk. I am now suffering from an all out sinus infection that started 3 days ago, and yes, I had some ice cream from Culver's 4 nights ago. I know better than to eat ice cream and now all paths point to; if you eat it you will soon pay for it!

I had a blizzard from dairy queen on saturday april 29. Yesterday I started having sinus problems and by today I have a full blown sinus infection. I haven't had sinus problems in a good while. That's odd.

The ice cream sore throat theory -- I believe it may be true! This morning I woke up with a sore throat, swollen glands, and flu like symptoms then I read on and see a link with ice cream. Guess what I had for dessert last night....Yes ice cream! I have tried the ACV for my throat and it has definitely helped. Thank You to this site!

I went downtown on like a 2l of ice cream and 24 hours later i'm sitting here with a freakin' terrible sinus infection... So, I don't understand why i'm having this big attack in May! I go to look up why you get them and there this big link with ice cream... freaky! It's true!

For 5 days straight I had ice cream for a snack. then after the 5th day is when my sinus infection came on. Then I realized it was the ice cream. It was the Breyers brand that I had. I think that it is the milk product in the ice cream that is causing the sinus infection.

I had a terrible sinus infection that I was taking over the counter medicines for- with no luck. I stumbled onto this site and decided the ACV was worth a try. Also, I had eaten ice cream two days before my infection came on full blown- never knew about the ice cream link until this site. I took the mixture 3 times the first day, coupled with a saline spray, and saw immediate improvement. The next day was even better. I will continue this daily for my allergies. Thanks!

I had a really bad cold for a few days, but it didn't feel like a sinus infection, it was just a really bad cold. My cold started to go away, and I had a pushup ice cream thing. and like you said the next day my eyes were hurting, my nose was congested, and now I'm coughing up mucous every min. So you might be on to something about the ice cream.

Just wanted to let you know that when i read this about Baskin Robin Ice i was in awe. My 3 year old daughter and I both got a very very bad sinus infection about 48hr after eating some Baskin Robin in Kennesaw,GA. It so happens that I ate Ice Cream at Baskins Robins a week ago and I have had a major sinus infection that I cant get rid off, I am on medication. I have never had a infection so severe in my life. I just so happen to eat a three scoop sundae. I never had such bad sinus infection ever. After going to my doctor and taking some medication for a few days and not doing better i decided to Google sinus infection and that's how I found your web site. If there ever any action taken against Baskin Robin I sure want to be part of it. Thank you for your research as I surely will stay away from those stores

That is so strange. I ate an ice cream drumstick and the next day I had a full blown cold. Then the following day I ate Bryers Carb Smart Rocky Road and when I woke up the following day my sinuses were killing me and my cold was even worse..
