Resolved Question:

I recently used Nasaline and my left sinus cavity did not drain, causing me to feel pressure on the left side below my eye. What can I do to encourage drainage to relieve the pressure?

Doctor DanB :

Hello and thanks for your question. The steam from a hot shower can be helpful in getting this to drain as can ocean nasal spray (saline) or sinus rinses with a netti pot. Does that make sense?
