Moisture: If you want to avoid medications, try to maintain good nasal health by using saline irrigations and keeping an appropriate moisture level in the air you breathe. Unfortunately, this won't help if you have a physical issue blocking the drainage of your sinuses. Finally, make sure that the problem really is sinus-related and not another kind of headache.

Saline rinses: Wash your nose with salt solution, use decongestants and anti-inflammatory medications. These will promote drainage of the sinuses. Drink plenty of fluids, and Mucinex (guaifenesin) type medications may help as well. Ask your doctor for a prescription for a nasal steroid spray if you are still bothered.

Migraine?: Sinus pressure is tricky. Basically, the front of the head and face is not just the sinuses. For a 16 year old, my first thought is you might have migraines. Allergy can cause some facial pressure.In general, sinus infections are rare and doctors frequently mistakenly prescribe antibiotics for what you are describing. See a good Ear Nose and Throat doctor!
