Decongestants: Promoting drainage from an obstructed sinus outlet is one major factor, along with antibiotics. This can be helped along by irrigation with saline/bicarb solutions, nasal steroids, oral decongestants (pseudoephedrine), and other similar products. Use of a mild painkiller like aspirin, tylenol (acetaminophen) or other n0n-steroidal anti-inflammatories may also help.
