Sinus rinse: The predominant method used for flushing the nasal cavity with saline is the Neti-pot. Neilmed has a newer device that is a squeeze bottle. The advantage is better control over the velocity of the rinse. If the rinse makes you cough, then you would do well with a more gentle strategy such that it flows out the other nostril instead of down the throat. Our patients do well with this.

Extra fluid: Drink extra water, this will loosen the secretions and allow you to cough up the material easier.
