A variety of paranasal sinuses are present in humans. In certain individuals, the sinuses are blocked as a result of inflammation caused due to an allergic response or due to a bacterial or viral infection, a condition referred to as sinusitis. Sinus headache is a symptom that is predominantly observed in patients with sinusitis.
Sinus headaches are often associated with constant throbbing pain in the forehead that gets exaggerated due to head movements. These headaches are associated with other sinusitis symptoms such as nasal discharge, facial swelling, pain around the eyes and across the cheeks and a feeling of stuffiness in the nasal cavity.
The most common treatment method for sinus headaches is to use nasal decongestants and nasal steroid sprays. However, these medications are associated with different side effects and should not be prescribed to patients with high blood pressure, migraine and Raynaud’s disease.
As a safer alternative, people are now seeking homeopathic care so as to reduce inflammation and get relieved of pain associated with sinus headaches. Homeopathic remedies offer a permanent cure to the ailment and are devoid of any adverse effects on the health of the patient. These remedies can be prescribed to patients who are suffering from chronic peptic ulcers, and also to those who are really sensitive to antibiotics and pain killers. Some important homeopathic remedies that are prescribed by doctors for treating sinus headache include Arsenicum album, Pulsatilla, Kali bichromicum, Natrum muriaticum, Iris versicolor, Hepar sulphuricum, Bryonia, Belladona, Nux Vomica, Gelsemium, Spigelia, Silicea and Mercurius.
