Try applying vicks: Vaporub on your nose and cheeks, chew cough drops, sudafed may help. There is no connection between the right and left sinuses. Hope u feel better!

Up to you: Some of my patients have used a saline sinus rinse daily for years. Make sure your bottle or netti pot are clean, don't forget to use salt, and use it when it feels good to do so. It can help keep your nose open, wash out pollen, pus, and dirt. If itwas recommended by your ENT doctor, get their opinion. Depending on reason for use, will have an opinion.

Normal: After you insert something in the nose, the body's normal reaction is to try to expel it. That may last for up to an hour afterwards. Make sure you use sterile water with the sinus rinse.
