Med for cold&sinus: Oral decongestants are recommended for nasal and sinus congestion. By mouth, nyquil day/night, sudafed etc. Nasal sprays like afrin or neosynephrine should be used cautiously for less than three days to avoid damage to the nasal lining. Thick mucous (nasal discharge) is best treated with Mucinex (guaifenesin) or Robitussin to make the mucous more watery. Nasal saline irrigation or sprays can also provide relief.

Ongoing Sinusitus: Consider seeing an ENT specialist. Many conditions can cause the symptoms of sinusitis such as a bacterial infection, fungal infection, allergy condition, and other non infectious inflammatory conditions. The ENT doctor may order a cat scan and other blood tests to check your immune system and allergy status. The cat scan may be able to rule out polyps or cysts. Sometime cultures are needed.

Several ways: Control allergies, use a sinus rinse, occasionally may need a decongestant, but keeping the openings from the sinuses into the nose open will help prevent both congestion and infection.
