In brief: Sinus Remedies
Sinusitis is caused by inflammation of the nose and sinus passages in almost all occasions.
Antihistamines, nasal decongestants, and antibiotics, if symptoms persist beyond ten days, are helpful. If infections recur, suspect an allergy or irritant, such as acid reflux or smoke. Anatomy may also play a role. Frequent infections? Go see an ear, nose and throat doctor.

In brief: Depends
Sinusitis has several primary factors: 1) irritation of the mucosa (lining to the nose/sinuses) - you prevent this by making sure if you have allergies, that you are on appropriate medications; avoid getting viral infections - wash your hands and keep your hands away from your face.
2) anatomic issues - a deviated septum or narrow sinus anatomy - the only way to get that checked is with a sinus ct.
