I used to have sinus infections and pressure several times a year. One of my visits to the VA ER the doc on call told me to start sleeping with a cold water humidifier in my bedroom at night. Doesn't need to be on during the day, just when you're in there at night. I've had 2 sinus infections in the last 4 years. When I do have additional pressure I use the Nedipot sinus rinse and it works wonderfully well.
Hope all this helps you.

I agree with Douglye, Sinus rinse AWESOME!! I found out how awesome when I was preggo and needed something for a sinus infection that wouldn't effect my baby. I got hooked!! Whenever I started having sinus trouble I use it and it's miraculous to say the least. Just yesterday I had a sinus headache all day, but wasn't sure if that was it. I used my rinse and felt completely better like 15 minutes later!!! I was mad at myself for not doing it right in the morning! :)

Have you tried a sinus rinse? NeilMed sells a 'sinus rinse'. they make their money selling the little packs of sea salt and baking soda (that you can mix yourself for 1/10 the price). It's drug free with no side effects.

I had an acute case of sinusitis which gave me a constant 'pressure under the eye' condition and EVERY simple cold turned into a sinus infection. The Ear Nose Throat specialist recommended the sinus rinse. If you are not a candidate for sinus surgery, the rinse should help. (it helped me a LOT, but only after sinus surgery ;-)

Steam helps me. Either a long time in a toasty shower or sticking my head over a pot of hot water with a towel.

You can find your sinus spot by using your fingertip to rub around the area. When you hit on it, then massage it with a circular motion. Using a warm-to-hot damp flannel while you massage helps even more to reduce the build-up that can cause problems, including aching around the eye-teeth roots.

A cool moist washcloth placed over the spot.

A hot or cold pack. Be careful with those. Follow instructions because to hot or cold and they can burn your skin.

Anyone have helpful tips on how to relieve sinus pressure? Already tried Claritin, Sudafed and flonase. I am not congested at all. Just have pressure under my cheeckbone...
