I couldn't believe what i was reading. i had flu like symptoms, took my temperature and everything and two days later i had a full blown sinus infection. the ice cream that i ate was Breyers ice cream. unfortunately i didn't find your web site in time for a home cure. i got a prescript for an antibiotic today. ten days was long enough with the sinus and headaches.

I was looking for an at-home remedy and seen that ice cream is linked to sinus infections. Believe it or not I had eaten ice cream at Dairy Queen and went home, hours later I felt like I was coming down with something. It started just with a running nose. While sleeping off and on the symptoms worsened. It's the next morning were I have a sinus infection. It hit hard and fast, with no warning. No cold, not anything. I believe that the ice cream sent me into overdrive.

I do not think it is the ice cream or dairy products that are causing the infection or more likely inflammation. There is a link though. The calcium in dairy products is probably triggering the release of gastrin that results in increased stomach acid. Gastric reflux of this acid can cause both sinusitis and asthma like symptoms. I would say this is GERD causing your problems.

Wanted to correct an earlier posting by an individual claiming that Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream contains sorbitol. Only the sugar-free varieties contain sorbitol, not the regular stuff.

I read your article on ice cream being the cause of sinus infection. I have a severe case right now and just as you stated 48 hours ago I had some ice cream, which I normally don't eat. Thanks for the info.

i just wanted to comment on the ice cream issue. it definitely causes sinus infections. i have suffered for years with my sinuses. as much as i love it i have vowed never to take another spoonful of the stuff. i can be ok and somewhat clear outside of my allergies and the moment i get weak and eat that vanilla i develop so much mucus as a result that i can hardly breath. take my advice don't touch it.

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..

I think there is a true link between dairy products and sinus infections. If I consume dairy products, I get congested for nearly 3 days. If my daughter (who is 4) consumes dairy then about 2 days later she does develop a sinus infection. We now use Rice cheese, rice milk, and soy or rice ice cream in place of dairy products.

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

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.

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!

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 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!

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 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.
