Water Is Never A Bad Idea
Water is basically the solution to every and all problems. But especially when you have a sinus infection, water can help flush the virus out of your system so make sure you are hydrating! It is recommended to have nearly 8 ounces of water per 2 hours.
Immune System Boosting Foods
Foods like garlic, ginger, and onions should be added to your meals which can help fight the bacteria from forming. You can make it a bit more tasty by drinking ginger tea with added honey that will provide you with antioxidants. Not only does it contribute some sweetness and flavor but it is also rich in antibacterial and antifungal characteristics.
When you have a sinus infection it means that you have a build-up of pressure around your sinuses. This means it is extremely important to keep those sinuses hydrated! Some ways to do this are to sleep with a humidifier at night to avoid nasal blockage and during the day/before bedtime use nature nasal sprays from the nearby pharmacy to help loosen the congestion. You can also take hot showers, as the steam is excellent for your sinuses! Even better purchase a netty bot that will clear your sinuses in 10 minutes, that one is a bit uncomfortable but one of our favorites.
One great way to relieve sinus pressure is by applying moist, warm heat around your nose, cheeks, and eyes to help with the pain you may be feeling. This will help clear the nasal passages and get you feeling better!
