what are some good home remedies for sinus infections?

Sinusitis: You can irrigate the sinuses with a rinse via a netti-pot, you can use a decongestant like pseudoephedrine, there may be nasal steroid sprays, and antiinflammatories. If, however, you develop facial pain and swelling, fever, headache, persistence of other symptoms please go see a doctor asap. Sinus infections can have major complications.
