SINUS PROBS PART 3
I tried bumping up the humidity to around 5.5 and it dried my nose out completely - turned it to 5.0 seemed ok, 4.5 gave me sinus problems, but not a headache. Put it back to 5 for about a week and still had problems. I'm now trying it without the humidity chamber and so far so good.

Hi weeble,
I hope what you are trying continues to work; maybe you can get away without humidity altogether, best of luck.
