Tips For Sinusitis Sufferers    

You may have sinusitis if you suffer from:
  • Symptoms of upper respiratory infection lasting 10 days or more
  • Facial pressure or pain
  • Nasal discharge that is yellow or green
  • Post-nasal drip
  • Cough

At-home treatments for sinusitis include:

  • Saline nasal sprays that moisturize the nasal cavity, reduce dryness, and help clear thick or crusty mucus
  • Humidification (moisturizing the air) of living spaces in dry climates will aid the movement of mucus through the sinuses

A physician visit for your sinus pain will:

  • Determine if you have an infection requiring an appropriate antibiotic
  • Discover if you require extensive medical treatment for a condition such as a nasal obstruction
