This little remedy helped me in the past - it was actually suggested by my Dentist when I was in great pain and it turned out I had a sinus infection...
1tsp salt
1tsp baking soda
Dissolve above in 1 cup warm water.
Then comes the "attractive" part :) How does one put this...sniff/snort/inhale/somehow get that liquid up your nose and into your sinuses!
I encountered IMMEDIATE relief from the pain.
Get better soon!
