Sinus Headache (cont.)

Prevention

Good handwashing and hygienic practices can help prevent colds and upper respiratory infections. Smoking cessation can also decrease your risk of airway infections. Avoiding allergic triggers can also help prevent sinus infections in those who have allergies.

Keeping the body well hydrated and humidifying the air can help promote efficient drainage of fluids from the sinuses.
