Hi Jonathon,

I had sinus surgery last year April - it took 6 weeks to heal and for a few months my sinuses were clear. Then I started having trouble again and a few months ago my sense of smell disappeared.

I have started nasal irrigation with a solution of 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp bicarb and 1/4 tsp Hydrogen peroxide in a glass of water.( Use a bit of boiling water to dissolve the salt and bicarb)

This seems to be working very well - if I use more peroxide it burns - you will have to test how much you can take, but according to my research it is 1%.

I have been trying the hydrogen peroxide - using a cotton swab with H2o2 - for just two days now. Almost immediately I noticed improvement in my runny nose. But as of today I can tell you that the polyps are shrinking. We'll have to see how far this progresses, but it is moving in the right direction.

Hi, after reading your post, i went out to buy h202, only to realise it is not something that is easily found in Australian pharmacies. thus i ordered a bottle of h2o2 capsules (food grade), the type where there is white powder inside the clear capsules. anyway, for a weeks i opened the capsule, poured out the powder, and cotton swapped it onto my polyps. and immediately i felt a tingling sensation. after waiting approx 30mins i found that it was incredibly easier to breathe, and the polyps shrank. but i find that the process needs to be repeated 3-4 times a day, whereby the more frequently it is applied (above 3/4 times), the less effective it becomes. i also tried snorting a bit of the powder in attempt to make it 'reach' the deeper tissues, but there was no effect.

i have a question, as to how much h202 should one apply? and is an overdose detrimental? ie will it damage the tissue?

thanks if anyone could reply.
