Here is another thought, could the fibers and stuff coming out be a detox as a result of the CS ? I have had mega amounts of black specks coming out of my face since I been taking CS. I am having an itchy thing going on under my chin right now. You said it was getting colder, I would have the most extreme skin issues during cold fronts, I think they kill it. Since my husband bought me the ozonator, I've noticed a difference in the air, in my house, I think running it kills the stuff in the air. I have been using the CS as nose drops as well and I think that is helping with the inhabitans in my sinus. GET REST PUT YOUR FEET UP.
