Drink plenty of fluids, such as water or juice. This will help dilute mucous secretions and promote drainage. Avoid beverages that contain caffeine or alcohol, as they can be dehydrating. Drinking alcohol can also worsen the swelling of the lining of the sinuses and nose. Moisten your sinus cavities. Drape a towel over your head as you breathe in the vapor from a bowl of hot water. Keep the vapor directed toward your face. Or take a hot shower, breathing in the warm, moist air. This will help ease pain and help mucus drain. Apply warm compresses to your face. Place warm, damp towels around your nose, cheeks and eyes to ease facial pain...if no improvements consult nearest physician or ent specialist.

Use Nasowash (Cipla) once a day in the morning. Take Tab Montair FX once a day. Use Furamist AZnasal spray twice a day. If you are still not ok after a few days consult an ENT Surgeon / Physician
