In brief: First, diagnosis
Rhino-sinusitis is an inflammation of the sinuses in the face and head.
It always follows a viral infection of the nose and then proceeds into the adjacent air spaces in the face and head. Most patients use this term very loosely. Thus you must first have a diagnosis (cat scan is the gold standard). Home remedies include salt water irrigations, netti-pot irrigations, decongestants. See doc.

In brief: Nasal wash
Hello, my patients who suffer with chronic or recurrent acute sinusitis and use a regular sinus rinse find their symptoms to be better controlled.
Sinus pressure is related to a narrowing of the sinus outflow pathways. Afrin nasal spray used twice a day followed by the sinus rinse may work even better. If the symptoms persist despite these maneuvers, then a visit to your ENT may be helpful.
