Try these tips to reduce inflammation and prevent sinus problems:


  • Apply a warm, moist washcloth to your face several times a day to help open the transition spaces.
  • Drink plenty of fluids to thin the mucus.
  • Inhale steam two to four times per day (sit in the bathroom with the hot shower running).
  • Use a nasal saline spray several times per day.
  • Wash the nose with a salt water solution from a neti pot.
  • Try a humidifier to moisten the air you breathe and help open sinuses.
