    Boil water and put it in a pan. Then cover your head with a towel and breath in the steam several times a day.

    You can add eucalyptus or other herbs if you’d like.

    I am an expert in this area – used to have sinus infections every other month. A few things work – a NeilMed sinus rinse kit is great – cleans out all the bacteria/gunk in the sinuses. For inflammation I found that clove oil, thyme oil and cinnamon oil (use 3 drops of each in water and boil and breathe it in) work.
    Thyme is great for headaches – so is peppermint oil. Also try a hot compress on your face.

    Hold your head back and pinch your nose at its base (right between your eyes). Do this for a minute or two and see if that doesn’t take care of it.

    Breathing steam is a really good option, as is a hot compress on your forehead. I also find that having someone massage my head, right around the point where your eyebrows run into your nose (up under your eyebrows), putting steady pressure there can really help temporarily. Drink lots of fluids.

    But, if you actually have a sinus infection the best way to get healthy in a timely fashion is to take a decongestant and see your doctor about an antibiotic. The first things I listed will help with the symptoms, but medicine will deal with the cause.

    Get a bowl of hot water (do not burn skin) and bowl of icewater
    Put 2 washcloths in each bowl. Have a dry hand towel beside you. Ring out hot rag first and put over cheeks,eyes and above eyes…put dry hand towel over this to keep heat in. Switch out hot rags if it gets too cool….keep hot on 3 minutes total. Then switch to cold rag for 30 seconds. Repeat this 3 times total…hot/cold…hot/cold…hot/cold. End on cold for 30 seconds. You can do this several times a day. It helps your the blood to heal your sinus areas. Also, a hot foot bath will pull the congestion down to your feet and help you breath better…just get up slow in case you get dizzy. Very cheap…works very well!

    I put 3 table spoons of Vick’s vapor rub in about 1/2 pan water let it simmer slowly. You can hold your head over it with a towel or just let vapors go Thur the house…Or put on some on nose & above top lip…It breaks your sinus’s open takes pressure away …Eat lots of fruit & Hot tea or a little salt water up the nose is good also or get some saline drops at store…TY ~ hope this helps you ..They really hurt… TY ~ Happy Holidays ~

    Headache is a pain in the head, scalp or neck. Headaches can be
    caused by minor problems like eyestrain, lack of coffee or more
    serious reasons like head injury, brain tumors, encephalitis and
    meningitis. Taking painkillers continuously can have harmful side
    effects, so it is better to modify your lifestyle. More information
