Although Athenabs is perfectly correct in saying we can not give medical advice there is something that I find very helpful for sinusitus.

I suffer from this a lot and find great relief from inhaling a couple of drops of Olbas oil on a tissue.

It instantly improves the condition, but be careful not to get the tissue too close to your eyes or it can be painful.

you can buy Olbas oil from high street chemists and supermarkets, but please follow the directions on the bottle.

The old fashioned blob of Vic in a bowl of hot water and inhaling the vapours under a towel covering your head and bowl used to help my sister a lot.

Messerwisser answers:

It must first be found out what is causing it.
I suffered from sinusitis many years and found no medicament that would help. Then a doctor found that a small surgical correction im my nose maybe could help. And it did!
Have not had any problems for many years now.
I recommend a check up by a doctor!

I have a similar problem, and indeed underwent a minor sinus surgery to correct a deviated septum but it didn't help much. I think there might be another problem further up, but the doctors around here don't even bother to check; they just fob you off with Fluticasone nasal spray.
It might be possible to get this without prescription now; it helps some people.

There's a similar treatment available without prescription from pharmacies under the name Beconase - it's aimed at hayfever sufferers, but if your problem is caused by allergic reaction it might help.

That said, neither of the above helps me; my sinuses are completely screwed after years of Sinex abuse starting from when I was a teenager.
Just say no.
