Sinus Pain

August 5, 2010

Sinus pain is felt more strongly in lower part of the nose. The nose feels tender to the touch and flabby as if the cells are being decomposed from within the nose. The embarrassing part of sinus pain is the constant need to void the nose of the mucus that is always there no matter how often the nose if blown to rid it of the obstructive mucus and accumulated dust and mites. The fact is that it is a tiresome and unpleasant feeling knowing that such material is constantly lodging in your sinus cavities.

Take a eucalyptus leave along with a pinch of salt and boil it in water until leaf becomes tender. You can use this one or two ways. Cover head with a towel and inhale vapors and or take a bulb syringe after water has cooled a bit suck the water into the bulb, hold your head back squeeze inside of each nostril eucalyptus works as a natural decongestant. So this will relieve the pressure in the nasal passageways so you can breathe better. You may also use a humidifier or clean air purifier to improve the air you are breathing in.

Treating Sinusitis and treating the pain that can be a symptom of sinusitis can be two different matters. Sinus pain can be severe and in some cases even temporarily debilitating. Methods of treating this pain include over-the-counter pain relievers (especially NSAIDS, as they act as an anti inflammatory as well as a pain reliever), heat applied to the area, steam and facial massage.

Alternating between a warm and cold compress to the head and face alleviates the symptom of the sinus pressure that you feel. Star with a warm compress for a few minutes than use the cold compress continue the process for at least twenty minutes. It helps to loosen the mucus and relieves the swelling to allow the mucus to flow freely.

Usually, Sinusitis results from an infection, be it as a common cold or that of the upper respiratory system, one that spreads to the sinuses starting from the nose and leading to the mucus passageways. Allergies to pollen, dust, smoke, and similar air pollutants can also trigger it as well. Another contributing factor is a hot indoor environment with dry-air heating or a room with excessive dryness.
