Decongestants: Other helpful remedies are saline nasal spray, drinking warm liquids such as soups. A humidifier may help, warm compresses may help.Drink plenty of liquids and finally, if antibiotics are ordered finish them.

What is the cause?: Is the sinus problem caused by an infection, tooth decay, trauma, cyst formation, cancer, etc. Without a proper diagnosis, it is difficult to determine the treatment. Many different antibiotics, antihistamines, anti-inflammatories, or narcotics could be used. Or simple moist, warm compresses to the cheek or sinus rinses may reduce the pain.

Facial acupressure.: Self care is powerful! use all points around the nose. If you have jaw issues, do those muscles too. Just fine a TMJ chart on the web.

ENT or Oral Surgeon: See ENT doc. If no diagnosis or dental problem. See oral surgeon. If TMJ, see TMJ expert.

Sinus pain: Try a cool compress to decrease local membrane swelling and relieve a bit of pain. But never apply ice directly to skin. Some people prefer warm, moist compresses and a humidifier. OTC pain reliever such as ibuprofen can help pain if you have no reason that you can’t take NSAIDs. Nasal spray decongestant can be used, sparingly, for up to 3 days max. Hope you feel better soon.
