Home care can help open the sinuses and alleviate their dryness.
Thin the mucus: Expectorants are drugs that help expel mucus from the lungs and respiratory passages. They help thin mucous secretions, enhancing drainage from the sinuses. The most common is guaifenesin. Over- the-counter (OTC) liquid cough
medications or prescription tablets can also combine decongestants and cough suppressants to reduce symptoms as well as to eliminate the need for the use of many medications. Read label ingredients to find the right combination of ingredients or ask the pharmacist for help.
Relieve pain: Pain
medication such as ibuprofen,
aspirin, and naproxen can reduce pain and inflammation. These
medicationshelp to open the airways by reducing swelling.
Acetaminophen can be used for pain and fever but does not help with the inflammation.
