What can be done at home to treat sinusitis?
Breathing in steam from a bowl of hot water or shower may help to clear your blocked sinuses. Similarly, flushing the nose and sinuses with salt water several times a day may relieve symptoms. Salt water sprays are available over the counter at pharmacies, or may be prepared at home. Applying a hot compress to the face may also provide comfort. These options may be particularly useful in children who can't take certain medications.
