How to Cure Sinus Infection

Sinus infection can be a very distressing condition, especially since it’s usually caused by a virus and can’t be treated with antibiotics. Many adults with sinus infection symptoms would just continue with their daily routine, while suffering with breathing problems, headaches and coughing.

Sinus infection symptoms include:

  • a blocked nose
  • a green or yellow discharge from the nose
  • a headache, mostly felt at the front of the head, and sensitive to head movement
  • toothache
  • high fever
  • a reduced sense of smell

A viral sinus infection will usually go away on its own within a few weeks, but there are natural remedies and over-the-counter products which can make the symptoms milder and the illness less severe. We can recommend our Isotonic Seawater Nasal Spray with Mint and Eucalyptus which will quickly unblock the nose without any side effects. It is suitable for everyone, including pregnant women and children over the age of 6.

Occasionally, a sinus infection can be caused by bacteria, especially if a viral infection with nasal congestion has been present for some time. In this case bacteria can start developing in the fluid-filled sinus pockets. Bacterial sinus infection usually needs to be treated with antibiotics.

You can minimise the chances of a viral infection developing into bacterial by regularly rinsing your nasal cavity and sinuses with an isotonic seawater solution. If you decide to use our Isotonic Seawater Nasal Spray with Propolis, as well as rinsing and moisturising nasal passages, you will feel the natural antibiotic and antiviral benefit of propolis, cutting your sinus infection shorter and milder.
