OPEN UP to other Sinus Pain Sufferers

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sudafed.Tracking Pixel It’s that time again – cold and flu season has once again creeped up on us. I’m not sure how it does it, but every year it’s like clockwork when we start sniffling and sneezing! This year, I’m ahead of it though. My secret weapon? The OPEN UP™ Facebook app! Sudafed is a brand we’ve known and trusted for years, so when I found out about their online app, I had to check it out!


OPEN UP™ is just what it sounds like – it’s all about opening up to other sinus pain sufferers. Talking to others that have dealt with sinus pressure, congestion, and other similar symptoms helped me realize that I’m not alone! I also grabbed a Sudafed coupon while I was testing out the app. When you’re suffering from sinus pressure, you don’t have to Google it to figure out what’s wrong: your head feels like it’s an orange juice being squeezed into a big glass of juice. The sniffles, the sneezes, the stuff that comes along with a cold… well, that’s nothing compared to your head feeling like it’s being crushed like a walnut, right? This infographic below talks about the sinus pain and pressure that so many of us experience during this time of year. The best part? 72% of women say their significant others are bigger babies when sick with a cold. Even better? 61% of men agree that they’re actually bigger babies! Finally, some science behind what us women have always known. Sudafed_OpenUp_Infographic_MECH Pin It!
