In brief: Sinus congestion

It depends on the cause of the sinus congestion.
If it is felt to be related to allergies then intranasal steroids, Singulair (montelukast) or antihistamines may help. If it is related to mucus and poor drainage then trying gentle spray intranasal saline is an option. All the best.
