Home Remedy For Sinus Headaches

Whenever I get a bad sinus headache, I take a piece or two of clear medical tape and stick them onto my forehead. The tape needs to be held on both ends so that it is a little taut. I don't know why this works, but it has helped me innumerable times, since I'm prone to sinus headaches. Even a band-aid will help, but not as well. This may help with other types of headaches too.


Source: I found this out by accident. One morning when I had a bad headache, my daughter (who was 4 at the time) wanted to put a band-aid on my forehead to help my "owie". I let her put one on, and was amazed at how much it helped.

I used to have sinus headaches often. My Dr. said if I would keep my sinuses rinsed out with mild salt and soda water it would help. I got a McNeil sinus rinse kit (found at drug stores) and it keeps my sinus cleared out and I don't have headaches any more. I mix about 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp soda in about 1 1/2 C warm water and put it in the rinse container.

Did you know that if you are going on a boat cruise and you suffer with sea sickness, all you do is put some elastoplast behind each ear. Somehow this works - I know because it worked for me.

Before the headache gets bad, try to unblock your nose by massaging the eyebrow bone about a fingers width away from your nose. You'll feel when it's the right place- it hurts! Rub in circles. Start gently and work up to firm. Not sure if this would help once the ache gets going but it helps to ward it off. I have been told this is a pressure point. Good luck.

Imagine your nose, with warm salt water flowing through, this is the 'river' you create each time you wash your nose.

Your sinuses are stagnant ponds with small outlets allowing them to drain into the nose. When the saline solution flows past these outlets it creates a low-pressure stream that draws out the contents of the sinus cavities; just like a swiftly moving river would drain a small pond.
It is just common sense to practice this nasal cleansing as a part of daily nasal hygiene. You get rid of allergens, pollution, dust & stagnant mucus.

My allergist calls me a "success story" and congratulates me on achieving "normal" sinus health by practicing daily nose washing. She told me most patients of hers who have had sinus surgery like I did end up worse off. I never thought I would be normal.


After my 3rd sinus operation - back in 1995. I got so depressed because all I could see ahead was more sickness, more surgery and no normal sinus health. But daily nosewashing helped me improve and normalize my sinus health. I can not say enough good things about it. I have also avoided colds by doing this. I swear! I used to work as a teacher and those germ bag kids were always sick.

I have not had a cold since 1999. I had one cold in 1998 & one in 1999. I did not retire from teaching until 2003. I began daily nose washing in 1995 so since 1995 I have had 2 colds and none since 1999.

Nose washing is one of the safest, easiest, cheapest & most beneficial things you can do for yourself. I don't want others to suffer as I did, that is why I encourage everyone I know to protect their sinus & respiratory health by washing the nose!
