Decongestion. Sinuses drain when you decongest the drainage pathways. Simple interventions include decongestants like pseudoephedrine taken orally. Prescription remedies would include nasal steroid sprays. Additional adjuncts include nasal saline irrigations and mucolytic such as guaifenesin. If you can get sinus pathways to drain better, you are less likely to develop a bacterial infection and you'll have better symptom relief.
Why? If there is no infection in sinus you may want to get your throat and ear infection treated instead and not to worry about sinus drainage.
Neti pot. A neti pot is an effective way to moisturize and flush out sinuses with saline.
