Quoting e-doolittle:Saline water via neti pot or other sprayer. Apple cider vinegar can help too. Lots of steam. Have to catch it early though.
I use a product called Xylitol. It's a nasal spray. I used some this morning as I woke up with "the headache" this morning, as well as pain when I put on my glasses. It's helped quite a bit.

Essential oils can help......I'm actually getting one as well and have been usin Doterrra's Breathe blend, Peppermint, and Eucalyptus. Works wonders :)
Here's my blog post about it, I've shared how I got rid of my sinus infection in 2 days, hope it helps:
(NaturalNews) When the basic function of life - the ability to take breathe properly - is compromised, it can make you feel quite desperate. Recurrent sinus infections or allergic rhinitis are very common. It is estimated that at least 37 million Americans are affected by this every year. Sometimes allergic sinusitis can last 3 months or more and keep on coming back. For centuries, people have effectively used herbs and natural remedies to help heal sinus infections. Along with keeping well rested, here are a few helpful therapies that will boost the immune system and make symptoms of sinusitis more bearable:
Your health care practitioner should be consulted if your sinus infection is showing no sign of improvement.Learn more: http://www.naturalnews.com/028254_sinus_infections_natural_remedies.html#ixzz2XMdNvV00
I drink a lot of water. It really works. The NP at the college I went to years ago told me to stay very hydrated as an alternative to more meds (I was on several for allergies and didn't really want more), I was skeptical but have made that my first thingto do when I start to feel the infection setting in- increase water intake. I haven't taken meds in years for an infection, and I get them at least once a year. The increased fluids keep the mucous super moist and easy to clear from your sinuses (this gets kind of gross because if the infection is stubborn you may end up blowing the infection out all at once at some point which is pretty disgusting lol) You can also prevent infections to an extent by staying fully hydrated.
