Why Cold Triggers Sinus Pain and Headache?
The sinuses are a connected system of hollow cavities in the skull. They are located at the cheekbones, low-center of the forehead, between the eyes, and behind the nose. Sinuses are lined with a layer of pink tissue called mucosa or mucus membrane.
Healthy sinuses are filled with air. Accumulation of fluids is what leads to sinus infections. Sinuses drain into the nose through a small drainage pathway called middle meatus. This is the reason why cold is often accompanied by sinus pain.
Cold leads to an excess mucus build up in the sinuses which then flows through the nose. However, common cold also blocks the sinus canals leading to sinusitis; a condition colloquially referred as “headache”. Sinusitis is an inflammation or swelling of the tissue lining the sinuses. This leads to some amount of visible swelling on the face at the sinus points, heaviness in moving the head, and pain in gums, cheek bones and brows. Sinus pain can either strike before or after the onset of cold.
Home Remedies for Cold and Sinus Pain
Home remedies are often revered as they are devoid of side-effects. Listed below are some effective home remedies to relieve cold and sinus pain.
Hold your head over a pot of boiling water and breathe slowly through your nose. Essential oils, such as eucalyptus or oregano, can be added for a quicker, better effect.
2) Drink Fluids–
It is essential to drink enough water as staying hydrated helps keep the nasal tract moist allowing easy drainage of mucus. Warm soups and teas help soothe the inflamed sinuses while easing out congestion.
3) Lemon and Honey Water–
Add two tablespoons of honey and juice of half a lemon to a glass of warm water. The antiviral properties and antioxidants found in honey and lemon fight the virus that leads to cold. High vitamin C content found in lemon helps boost the immune system and reduce bacterial buildup.
4) Turmeric and Ginger tea–
Turmeric and ginger exhibit anti-inflammatory effect, and are rich in antioxidants. Brew half-inch piece of ginger and one-inch piece of turmeric in one and a half cup of water for five minutes. Sipping this tea hot helps loosen mucus while easing out sinus pressure.
