Have you had to deal with sinus pressure? If you haven't, consider yourself lucky. It literally feels like the photo above - your nose (and brain) are being squeeeezed like an orange. Sudafed says it's time to OPEN UP and get the discussion going about sinus pressure and congestion. It's never fun to talk about, but it's even less fun to deal with.

3 Tips for Relieving Sinus Pressure and Congestion

1. Use a humidifier or take a long, hot, steamy shower. You can even try putting a warm wash cloth over your face for a few minutes.

2. Drink lots of fluids. This will thin out the mucus that you're dealing with, and should relieve some pressure.

3. Call in the reinforcements. Sudafed is a leader in sinus pressure pain and cold congestion relief. It's no secret that to fight sinus pressure and congestion, you might need Sudafed. For me, Sudafed works faster than other things I've tried and when you're dying to OPEN UP you need something that is fast acting.

When you have work, school, and kids to deal with, there's really no time to just sit back and relax. If you get sick, or aren't feeling 100% yourself, sometimes you have to push through. Sudafed (and a warm compress) can help you make it through the day without feeling like your head is going to explode. Once you get home, or after the kids are tucked in bed, you can sit back with a nice cup of relaxing tea and chill. Hopefully you can also get some sleep! Until then, press on with Sudafed.

Looking at this infographic below, I had to laugh. 72% of women say their significant other is a bigger baby when they're sick with a cold. That's so true! So, if nothing else, stock up on Sudafed for them. :)

Melanie - I hate sinuses ! Thankfully I rarely get them but when I do its. .eeek Not fun

MELISASource - Drinking lots of green tea always helps me a lot with sinus issues. I remember Sudafed products coming in very handy during my days in the workforce!

Tough Cookie Mommy - I’ve suffered from sinus infections and congestion for years due to my allergies. It’s really a miserable feeling when your head is all stuffy and your sinuses are all compacted. Sudafed has always been one of my go-to sinus relief medications.

Tess - Thanks for sharing your tips on sinus. Ive started having sinus problems lately and love to try natural cures over pills.

Growing Up Madison - Great tips! I suffer with sinus pressure, sinus headaches, you name it. I certainly agree with staying hydrated. You’ll be amazed at how awesome water is.

kay adeola - I will have to bookmark this so next time i have problems i can read your tips again thank you for sharing and your picture did make me laugh lol :-)

Bobbi Renee Hass-Burleson - I totally relate with that photo!! My sinuses and I do NOT get a long!!

Lolo - I really need to just break down and get a humidifier. My sinuses are awful all year long and I think that would really help.

Pam - I love that picture of you. That is the way I feel when I have sinus pressure except the clamp is around my entire head!

Pam - Thanks for the tips on sinus congestion. I don’t have too many issues with this but I know a few people that do. Looks like a very cool app.

Ashley Gill - This app looks like it could be a lot of fun! I usually get 2 serious sinus infections a year and totally know the pain.. ugh! I’ll think of you next time im suffering.. I usually take sudafed though to make it all better!

Mel Cole - It’s not fun when the sinusitis acts up. What I made sure that we have this winter are humidifiers on our rooms.

Teresa Mccluskey - Love the photo its fun! I dont have sinus issues but my family and friends do I will be sure to guide them to this page :D

Viccy H - Brilliantly illustrated photo at the beginning! Made me giggle! Thanks for this post – I haven’t had a cold this year yet, but I’m sure it’s coming! eek!

Robin (Masshole Mommy) - I forgot about Sudafed. My mother used to give that to me when I was a kid. The humidifier is a great idea, too. The dry heat from my heat doesn’t help my sinuses in the winter.

Michele - I do get sinus headaches on occasion-but I get affected more when the air pressure outside changes–then I get a whopper of a headache. I do like the info you have provided -it makes sense as do the recommendations. Thank you.

Karen - I hate sinus congestion, these are some great tips

Sharon - We are constantly fighting sniffles, sinus congestion, coughs, colds – the works during the cold months! Thanks for the tips!

Amberlee Cave - Men definitely are the bigger babies!! I have not tried sudafed but I know of so many people that rely on it during cold season. I will have to try it out!

Amanda @ Erickson and Co. - Great tips! Thanks for sharing. Last time my husband had a cold we took some Eucalyptus essential oil and put it on a wash cloth. Then he took a super hot shower and put the cloth in the shower so the vapor from the oil was in the shower. He said it worked amazing!

Terry (My Journey With Candida) - Hahha… now I get the jist of that picture. I hardly ever deal with sinus problems since I went on the candida diet 6 years ago. I do have times when I have a cold that plugs up my sinuses and then I use the netti pot for that, or sometimes I put pure peppermint on the back of my tongue. That will unstuff me in a hurry.
