Suggest remedies for sinus pain in cheeks
FOLLOW THE BELOW MENTIONED REGIMEN
Welcome to health care magic, I share your concern and I will try to help you out in best possible way.
When your sinuses get blocked, it might hurt as well, especially around your forehead, eyes, cheeks, and nose.
Whether your sinus pain is caused by a cold or a bacterial infection, here's how you can relieve it:
-Use a saline nose spray. Which is available in pharmacy, OTC. Saline mist will ease sinus swelling and help break up the mucus that's clogging your nose. You can use it up to six times a day without worrying about side effects.
-Use a humidifier. Stuffy sinuses respond well to moist air. Using a humidifier, especially when you sleep at night, will help keep your sinuses open and relieve the pressure. You can also try sitting in a steamy bathroom after a hot shower or inhaling the steam from a pan of hot (not boiling) water for faster relief.
-Apply a warm compress. Ease swelling and throbbing with a warm, wet washcloth across your forehead, eyes, and cheeks.
-Use an over-the-counter (OTC) decongestant nose spray. These ease congestion and provide relief, especially early in a cold. You can get them as a nasal spray, liquid, or pill. If you use a decongestant nasal spray, don't use it for more than 3 days. If you use it for longer, it can make your stuffiness worse, not better.
Take OTC pain relievers. Acetaminophen, ibuprofen, or naproxen can relieve sinus pain. It can be dangerous If taken excessively.
I hope this helps you.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
