A person is more at risk of sinus if he often had the flu, respiratory infections by bacteria or viruses, a broken nose and the presence of polyps in the nose.
Other factors such as smoking, pollution of water, the use of decongestant medications (drugs relieve blocked nose), cold air, divers, aviators and swimming in contaminated water can also increase risk.
Symptoms similar to ordinary flu that often occur during the rainy season such as runny nose, nasal congestion, mucus, fever and headache (usually after waking), yellow or greenish mucus, bad breath, cough, mucus, high fever (above 39 degrees Celsius), toothache, and less sensitive to taste and smell.
University of Maryland Medical Center reported sinus infection that causes facial pain, swelling or fever should be evaluated by a physician.
There are certain nutrients that can help people with sinus, in addition to consuming adequate water, namely:
Pineapple can help reduce sinus because it contains bromelain, an enzyme that can help alleviate sinus symptoms. Bromelain contains anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce inflammation (inflammation) and swelling in the nasal passages. This is based on articles published in Cellular and Molecular Life Sciences edition of August 2001.
Yogurt contains lactobacillus, the probiotics (good bacteria) that may contribute to reduce the allergy so as not to worsen the sinus infection. In addition, probiotics can strengthen the immune system.
Vegetables and fruits
Quercetin is an enzyme in the plant pigments responsible for color in vegetables and fruits. These pigments also act as an antihistamine. Quercetin is found in fruit bits, apricots, selederi, apples, oranges, broccoli, sprouts, cherries, kale, spinach, pears and peaches.

1. Immediately treat allergies and colds
2. Using air filters to help remove allergens from the air.
3. Avoid air pollution such as smoke
4. Eliminate smoking
5. Reduce alcohol consumption
6. Reduce travel through the air path for sufferers of chronic or acute sinus. Because the air bubbles trapped in the body expands as air pressure drops in the aircraft will put pressure on surrounding tissue and can cause obstruction of the Eustachian tube (tube that connects the ear to the throat). If you still have to travel to use decongestant nose drops or inhalers before the flight.
6. Drink lots of water
7. Sports Avoid swimming in chlorinated swimming pool with
8. Avoid skin diving
