  • You could try using a Neti pot, it's a warm saline wash you can get from your local pharmacy over the counter, but the idea is that the saline washes away the mucus in your sinus passages. If that doesn't help, or it continues, you should see an ear, nose, and throat doc and they can look up there and see what's going on.

  • May be a sinus infection if so you may need antibiotics. Go to the doctor and get it checked out.

  • I second a neti pot. It's kinda gross to use at first but it works. I always get sinus issues when I get sick and when the seasons change.
