Sinus Headaches
Print this pagePrint this page    Email this pageEmail this page
Sinus headaches can be accompanied by congestion, sinus pain and pressure behind the eyes, along the nose and behind the cheeks. Sometimes a sinus headache can feel like a stuffy nose. Other times, the pain can be intense enough to keep you from daily routines. Consult a physician if symptoms are severe, as they could be the sign of a sinus infection.
Vaporize It
Because moist air can help loosen the mucus and buildup that's creating pressure in your sinuses, humidifying a dry-air environment is a good idea. This can be done with a humidifier or steam vaporizer.
Depressurize It
At the onset of a sinus condition, you can take measures to avoid a headache. Saline nasal sprays may help to dry out and drain the fluids trapped in your sinuses, relieving pressure in your nasal cavities.
