In brief: Saline

Salt water nose drops or a netty pot may help.

In brief: Headache relief

Sinus headaches can be caused by a lot of mucous and inflammation.
Saline wash in the nose along with prescription nasal steroids can offer relief from both of these. Also, decongestants like pseudoephendrine can help reduce pressure, along with ibuprofen. You should always ask a physician if these treatments are appropriate for your symptoms.

Consider adding a trial of Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) that includes the cranium. It is a safe and effective method that addresses fluid movement from the face and head, relieving mechanical components of the headache pattern with a gentle, mechanical hands on treatment . cranialacademy.com has a doctor finder fxn. Also if you have allergies, claritin or allegra may be helpful.
