Most people start by visiting the local pharmacy in an attempt to self medicate but there are so many choices that it can get confusing as to what medication will treat your exact symptoms. Many over the counter medicines have unnecessary ingredients and even if you choose the right medication it may only provide short-term relief.
Natural Home Remedies
Sometimes going to the pharmacy is not an option and you have to turn to home remedies. Home remedies can range from simple lifestyle changes to crazy gadgets that don’t actually work. Some home remedies that actually work include:
- Humidifiers: Steam is an effective tool to open up nasal passages and reduce swelling.
- Neti Pot: Neti pots are very effective but they can cause more damage if not properly used. Be sure to read instructions carefully.
- Warm/Cold Press: Warm or cold packs may help to decrease inflammation resulting in a reduction of pain.
- Stay Hydrated: Drinking plenty of water can help to keep your sinus issues at ease.
Sinus surgery may be a long-term option for patients who suffer from chronic sinusitis. Sinus surgeries can be painful and are only necessary for certain situations. For most patients there are alternatives to surgery. Some surgical procedures include:
- Deviated Septum Surgery: while some deviated septums may be severe and need surgery, most of the time deviated septums do not display symptoms to the degree that requires surgery.
- Endoscopic Sinus Surgery: Endoscopic surgery may be required when there is an internal physical problem with the nose.
Alternatives to surgery exist and are generally safer and cheaper!
