The Symptom: Sinus Pressure
What it means: Mucus has congested the nasal passages and may be trapped in the sinuses because they are not draining properly.
When to worry: If you have a fever of more than 102 degrees, you may have a bacterial infection, which can be treated with antibiotics.
Home remedies: Keep your sinuses moist by using a humidifier, or stand over a sink filled with hot water.
Over-the-counter remedies: A decongestant spray (such as Dristan or Afrin) can help ease congestion and swelling.
