Let start with a comforting one. Do you have apple cider vinegar at home? It can be a great natural remedies for a sinus infection.

If you’ve been searching on the Internet for sinus infection remedies , it is likely that you have come by at least a photograph or two of people irrigating their nasal passages to help clear up a sinus problem.

Nasal irrigation can be somewhat complicated if you’re doing this for the first time. Try with a syringe (without the needle!) or a pipette, filled with warm water in one hand, you need to tilt your head until it’s horizontal, jam the syringe (pipette) into the upper nostril and push the plunger. The water will go into one nostril, cleanse out your nasal cavity and come out of the other nostril.

If you are pregnant you can use a few simple antibiotics, painkillers or decongestants would not really hurt you either. Do not blow your nose violently. Blow your every one nostril at a time, not both at once. Sudden pressure can push bacteria from the ear back in the sinuses.
