How do you relieve sinus pressure?

I need to relieve pressure in my head and face due to a very bad sinus infection.


Answer by  JCC (48)

You should consult your physician about your infection and follow his prescribed treatment. You may wish to ask him or her about also using a "Neti Pot. " This is a simple device that is filled with a warm saline solution. The saline solution gently removes small particles in the nasal cavity that could be irritating your nasal membrane.

A way to relieve long-term sinus pressure is to inhale steam from a hot shower, but an immediate way to relieve pressure is to massage your face above each eyebrow for 10-15 seconds. Repeat if pressure persists.

Saline sinus rinses irrigate the nasal passages without the use of medication and can be used twice a day. Take a hot shower to steam the bathroom and breathe in the steam. Warm towels placed over the sinuses on your face also help relieve pressure.
