Home Remedies for Sinus Headache Pain

There’s nothing like sinus pain behind your eyes, nose and cheeks to put the pressure on. Because when congestion hits, a sinus headache might not be far behind. But you can help put the pain in its place.

Try these remedies for pain from sinus headaches:

  • Turn on a cool-mist humidifier or steam vaporizer. By keeping the air around you moist, you can help loosen the mucus buildup that's creating pressure in your sinuses and relieve the pain. Just remember to clean your humidifier or vaporizer often.
  • At the first sign of sinus problems, use a saline nasal spray. It can help shrink the lining of your sinuses and open them up, letting the trapped fluid drain away.
  • Talk to your doctor if you’ve got severe pain. It could be a sign of a sinus infection, so you’ll want to know right away.
