See below: The majority of sinus infections (as well as ear infections) are caused by viruses and do not require an antibiotic. Medicines to promote mucus drainage may be helpful such as Mucinex (guaifenesin) or decongestants. Decongestants can cause side effects so check with your doctor before starting them. Saline rinses are also helpful. An antibiotic may be needed. ...Read more
Springsummer HA: Try nasal saline spray several times a day. Also inhaling steam like netti pot. An otc antihistamine like zyrtec or Allegra also can be of some help. Sudafed and other decongestants can make secretions thick and block sinus passages, and the rebound tissue swelling when they are stopped or between doses can be a source of sinus pressure as well. ...Read more
Inflammation of the sinuses may arise as a result of allergies, upper respiratory tract infections with viruses, bacteria or fungi (yeast infection) although another not commonly recognized cause of inflammation of the sinuses arises from reflux of acid from the stomach (laryngopharyngeal reflux or lpr). Most cases are due to a viral infection and resolve over the course of 10 days.
This does not however mean that you should be waiting for ten days for resolution of a sinus infection before seeing a physician.
A sinus infection is suspected if you experience a headache/facial pain or pressure of a dull, constant, or aching sort over the forehead, between or behind the eyes, over one or both of your cheeks or in the very back of the head. This pain is typically localized to the involved sinus and may worsen you bend over or when lying down. Pain often starts on one side of the head and progresses to both sides. Sinusitis may be accompanied by thick nasal discharge that is usually thick yellow or green in colour and may contain pus (purulent) and/or blood. Often a localized headache or toothache is present (especially the upper teeth and more commonly the canine teeth) and it is these symptoms that distinguish a sinus-related headache from other types of headaches, such as tension and migraine headaches. Infection of the eye socket is possible, which may result in the loss of sight and is accompanied by fever and severe illness. Another possible complication is the infection of the bones (osteomyelitis) of the forehead and other facial bones â€” a condition also known as pott's puffy tumor.
Sinus infections can also cause middle and less commonly inner ear problems due to the congestion of the nasal passages. This can be demonstrated by dizziness, "a pressurized or heavy head", clogging of the ear, popping and crackling sensation from dysfunction of the tube that equalizes the pressure in the middle ear (eustachian tube) or vibrating sensations in the head.
The over the counter first line of treatment should include a nasal decongestant spray like afrin which indeed should be limited to three days or less, a mucolytic agent like Mucinex (guaifenesin) or Robitussin to make the thick secretions more watery so they can drain more easily and be removed naturally by the body. Both Mucinex (guaifenesin) and Robitussin come in several preparations. Whenever the name of the medication ends with a d (e.g. Mucinex (guaifenesin)-d) it also contains a decongestant that will help to reduce the amount of discharge and mucous. The advantage of an oral decongestant is drying your nose; the disadvantage is its common side effects including feeling wired at night (having trouble falling asleep) and occasional sensation of a strong, fast or irregular heartbeat, also called palpitations.
If, however you feel that within a few days the pain or pressure over your forehead, cheeks, behind your eyes is either the same, worst or accompanied by thick yellow or green mucous or if accompanied by other signs like double or blurry vision, swelling of any part of the face or eyes, fever, prolonged symptoms, neck pain or rigidity etc. Prompt medical attention is in order. ...Read more

Depends: Sinus headache is caused by a difference in pressure between the sinus cavity and the outside world. The drainage pathway of the sinuses are narrow. When swelling occurs in the nasal cavity, this becomes blocked. Reversing the swelling will allow for the pressure to equalize. Knowing the cause of the swelling helps determine what works best - uri, allergy, infection, etc. See your doctor or ent. ...Read more
