How are sinus headaches treated?

ANSWER

The goal is usually to relieve your symptoms and treat an infection if you have one. You might take antibiotics, as well as antihistamines or decongestants, for a short time. You can also use inhaled nasal decongestants, but only for up to three days. Longer use can make your symptoms worse.
