Suggest Treatment For Head Cold, Sore Throat And Painful Sinuses
combination meds, warm compress
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
The sudafed would act as a decongestant and help to clear the sinuses and nasal passages.
There are different sudafed products, the sudafed pe pressure, pain and mucus may be the best option for you if you are using plain sudafed--- this contains the decongestant, pain killer--acetaminophen and mucolytic (to help break up mucus so it can drain).
The acetaminophen is the same as the tylenol that you are using so that would have to be discontinued so that you can use the combination tablet
A warm not hot compress to the face, would help with drainage
You can consider adding an antihistamine to this eg benadryl or claritine or zyrtec or allegra.
If a cough starts then you may need a cough suppressant eg robitussin
Rest and fluids are also very important
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
