Burning Sinus: Some viruses and early "colds" attack the lining of the sinuses and cause that annoying burning sensation. I use sterile saline nose spray to "wash out" the sinuses and then one or two gentle sprays of afrin (oxymetazoline) nose spray to relieve congestion. Sometimes it takes days to develop the full blown cold syndrome.
