Natural Remedies

Our local pharmacy is well-stocked with all of the over-the-counter allergy essentials, such as Allegra, Zyrtec, and Benadryl, as well as decongestants like Sudafed and Phenylephrine. We can even make compounded sinus support medications if you have a sensitivity to a certain ingredient. Our team of pharmacists will go above and beyond to ensure you know about the best treatments for how to improve sinus health. But if you want to try some natural remedies before using medications, there are a few things you could try in addition to the allergy tips already mentioned above.

Saline sinus rinse: You can buy a NetiPot system at our pharmacy, or if you already have a nasal rinse bulb or syringe at home, you can make your own saline solution. Irrigating your sinuses is an effective way to combat congestion and provide instant relief from the most frustrating symptoms. Remember to use only distilled water and thoroughly clean the device before and after each use.

Steam therapy: Something as simple as taking a steaming hot shower or inhaling steam over a bowl of hot water or soup can also do wonders for your nasal passages. If you have a diffuser, you could also put in a few drops of eucalyptus oil to diffuse into the air ( do not inhale directly) to assist in calming your irrigated sinuses.

Allergy Support Supplements
