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.
