  • Lay a warm compress across your forehead and nose/cheek area. It will help with the nasal swelling and once the swelling goes down you will start to feel some relief. Put a warm compress on for fifteen minutes, twice an hour.

  • I take Excedrin if it's a migraine, and try to avoid bright light. Steam from a shower or warm compress and/or use a neti pot if it's a sinus headache.

  • You've probably been in bed too long. I feel like that when I sleep in too late. Get up, drink some OJ and get some fresh air.
