I'm having bad sinus congestion due to allergies. I've taken Nasacort (triamcinolone) this morning, didn't help. Tried Claratin and ibuprofen about 4 hours ago and st?

Sudafed + Neti Pot: Nasacort (triamcinolone) is a steroid and therefore we try to save it as a last resort option, when you've failed all other options. The best option would be sudafed, it's a nasal decongestant so it should relieve all the pressure in the sinuses. Another good option is the Neti Pot - it's a teapot-like device that rinses saline solution through your sinuses to clear everything out, it works wonders! ...Read more
