How to manage sinus pain

How to manage sinus painIf you are reading this, then the chances are that sinus pain is not something new to you. It can be very uncomfortable, and it is no fun when the pressure in your face causes discomfort or makes it difficult to breathe through your nose. There are many reasons why someone might have sinus pain, but whatever the reason, there are ways to treat it so that you can find relief fast. 

Causes of sinus pain

The most common causes of sinus pain are allergies, respiratory infections, and colds. The lining in the nose swells when someone has an allergy or a cold which results in increased pressure inside the nasal passages. This can lead to headaches, fever, stuffy nose and facial pain, and many other discomforts that make it difficult for you to breathe through your nose.

How to relieve the symptoms of sinus pain

Once you know the cause, it is easier to find a way to relieve the symptoms. If you have allergies or a cold and your sinus pain is due to this, then over-the-counter decongestants can help with dryness in the nose and make breathing more comfortable for you by reducing swelling in nasal passages. Saline rinses are also an effective way of relieving sinus pain. They work like natural vapors when mixed with lukewarm water and gently blown into nostrils, providing relief from stuffiness.

Tips for prevention and treatment

One of the best ways to avoid sinus pain is by avoiding known triggers. If you know that your allergies are caused due to something in the environment, try and stay away from it as much as possible or wear protective equipment like a mask when around it. You can also prevent colds that could lead to sinus pain by getting flu shots every year before winter.

If you do get sick with a cold or respiratory infection, make sure to take all medication as prescribed by the doctor so that it does not interfere with other medications you might be taking. Reach out to us if you have any questions about this, and we will be glad to help.
