  2. Allergy-proof your home. The latest guidelines from the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery call for controlling your home environment by getting rid of dust mites, installing an air filter system, using bedding with allergen-barriers, and keeping any pets out of the bedroom to help curb nasal allergies.

  3. A humidifier can keep the air moist, but be sure to keep it clean, especially if you have mold allergies.  Thirty-five to 50 percent humidity is ideal.

  4. Apply warm compresses.  You can also follow up the warm compress with a cold compress, which may help relieve sinus pain.

  5.  Using antibiotics indiscriminately can lead to antibiotic resistance and the development of superbugs, plus they may not be effective in treating most cases of sinusitis. Less than two percent of these infections are bacterial.

  6. Know when to see the doctor.  If sinus pain lasts for a week or more and you have a fever, you should see an ear, nose and throat specialist, because you may need more aggressive treatment than natural remedies provide.
