Sinus Headache Relief
You know the feeling. The fog. The stuffed head. The strange color, well, you know. It all adds up to what I refer to as the holiday crud. I get it every few years. Ever since I started getting sinus infections in college I’ve always loathed the sinus headache. It’s eveeeeeeeel. Debilitating. It renders me useless. And unfortunately, if it hits our house, we all get it.

In college Sudafed was my best friend. It gave me sinus headache relief and helped me get through Organic Chemistry labs and Macro Economics with less suffering.(Well, at least the sinus headache part) But something changed when I started having kids and I can’t take it anymore. Sad.

But we still keep Sudafed in the house for my husband, and when the holiday crud hits, I look longingly at his box of sweet sinus headache and congestion relief. It’s just not fair!

So, in my solace, with stuffed head, I found my way over to Sudafed’s OPEN UP™ application on Facebook I found other sufferers, like me, who while using Sudafed also found other ways to relieve that darn sinus pressure and congestion.

Ways to find sinus headache relief

1.) Take a decongestant like Sudafed to bring sinus pressure and headache relief.
2.) Drink hot tea with lemon and honey. If you can handle it, add a small sprinkle of cayenne pepper. Maybe it sounds a bit nuts but this natural remedy really helps. 3.) Make sure you are drinking enough water, Sinus congestion makes you feel cruddy, and not drinking enough water is just going to make you feel worse.
4.) Sit down at your kitchen or dining room table with a large bowl of very hot water. Lean over the bowl, covering your head and the bowl with a towel, and let the steam work it’s magic. Not only will this help with your congestion but your skin will like it too, which is a real plus.
5.) Give yourself some acupressure. I’m not an expert, so you’ll have to rely on Dr. Google for the exact points, but a bit of acupressure really does help.
6.) Make sure you REST. Even with the best treatment if you don’t rest you’re going to stay sick.
7.) Log on to Sudafed’s OPEN UP™ application on Facebook and open up[ to others about your sinus woes. You aren’t alone.
