    I'm asking because I almost never get colds, but a sinus infection is common as I reported on my medical forms. I want to know if I might need to report anything.
    The way the guidelines lay it out, any prescription medicine that you need to take should be reported.

    The main issue is that there are many medications in the u.s. that are common, but are illegal in japan. What may seem like a common medicine here may be impossible to get in japan, like sudafed for example.
    Anything I say here is my personal opinion. Always consult with your coordinator if you have any doubts, especially if you are applying from a country that is not the United States.

    Japanese + vague = match made in "heaven". Especially bureaucracy.

    Right?
