Acute sinusitis- how to treat with home remedy?
Hello, I am 19 years old. I am suffering from fever and headache along with thick yellow or green nasal discharge. There is loss of smell and taste, congestion and cough. I am also having bad breath. I am suffering a lot for this situation. I have got doctor's consultation also. According to his diagnosis, I am suffering from acute sinusitis. I have prescribed with medicines also. But I am more interested in home remedies rather than any medication. Please advise.
@anurup Inhale warm water vapor.
Drape a towel over your head as you breathe in the moist air from a bowl of warm or moderately hot water. Or take a hot shower, breathing in the warm, moist air.
Apply warm compresses.
Place warm, damp towels around your nose, cheeks and eyes to ease facial pain.
Drink plenty of fluids.
Consuming additional fluids helps dilute mucous secretions and promotes drainage.
Use a saline nasal spray.
Saline washes or sprays can remove thick secretions and allow the sinuses to drain.
Use a neti pot.
A neti pot is a container designed to rinse debris or mucus from your nasal cavity. Neti pots are often available in pharmacies and health food stores, as well as online. Be sure to use filtered water and talk to your health care provider to see if nasal rinsing is right for you.
