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.
