Home remedies For Sinus Problems

True misery is the pain and swelling caused by sinus inflammation. The bones around the nose, the eyes and the cheeks are lined with membranes that produce mucus, which function to warm and moisten inhaled air, plus to filter out any germs. When congested and unable to drain properly, the mucus continues to accumulate, stagnate and become infected.

Just because you have sinus symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean you have an infection. Strive for an indoor environment that’s not too dry and not too humid. “Dust mites love greater than 50% humidity,” Lavi warns. And if you’re allergic to dust mites, that’s bad news for your sinuses.

Vaporizers can keep you more comfortable if you are in the midst of a sinus problem, Leftwich says. But you need to have it close by. “It doesn’t do any good to have a vaporizer on the other side of the room.” And, he warns, the devices must be cleaned daily to keep bacteria from growing in them.
