5 At Home Strategies for Sinus Relief

  1. HOT STEAM – hot steam helps you breathe easier.  Linger in a hot shower for the easiest steam treatment.
  2. HUMIDIFIERS – the steam from a humidifier can moisturize a whole room and with it, your poor nasal passages.
  3. WARM COMPRESSES – Relieve some of the pain from pressure in your sinuses with a warm, damp washcloth
  4. STAY HYDRATED – drink lots of fluids – preferably water – to help thin your mucus, making it easier to drain.
  5. ELEVATE YOUR HEAD AT NIGHT – Use an extra pillow to lift your head up to help drain your sinuses.
