Nasal Irrigation - Why Does Sinus Drainage Make You Cough? - Nurse's Guide

People often think if they have a cough they must have a lung problem. In many cases it may be simply sinus drainage. If you have a non-productive cough and congestion, chances are you have a sinus irritation, sinus infection, acute sinusitis or other sinus problem or condition and not a lung problem.


The job of the sinuses is to secrete mucus to provide proper lubrication and help the nose prevent dust, particles and harmful organisms from entering and infecting the respiratory tract. :)


Usually the cough is not severe in the early stages and is a signal to you that something is wrong or is starting up. To cure the cough and stop the excess sinus drainage you want to cure the sinus infection, sinusitis or other sinus problem right away before it gets worse. You don't have to suffer with acute or chronic sinusitis anymore. And antibiotics are not the way to go. Most sinus infections are caused by a fungus and not bacteria. Plus the antibiotics have a difficult time reaching the sinus cavities. The best way to cure your sinus problem or sinus infection is to do it naturally. There are many ways to do that. Developing a basis for this composition on Sinus Infection was a lengthy task. It took lots of patience and hard work to develop.

This Cough is the Body's Voluntary Reaction to Protect Its Airways

At the same time the mucus backs up in your sinus cavities and gets inflamed and hardens and starts a sinus infection because it can't move through the sinuses properly. One quart of mucus needs to move through the sinuses every day. Failure is the stepping stone to success. So if you do fail to understand this article on Chronic Sinus, don't fret. Read it again a few times, and you are sure to finally get its meaning.


Most of the medicines, which are used for sinus, related problems have their own side effects like adversely impacting on mental alertness, rise in blood pressure, increased heart rate, loss of sleep etc. Persistent use of medicines can also lead to thinning of bones, cataract and diabetes. So home remedies for sinus problems should be preferred over medicines till they succeed in lessening the discomfort. :roll:


The one very important thing which people over look while going for home remedies for sinus problems is that they do not raise their head while sleeping. While taking rest or sleeping. One should use more than one pillow or should readjust the bedposts. A raised head leads to easy draining of nose and makes breathing easier. If the head is not raised then it makes mucus to pool inside the head. So one should not over look this precaution. We were a bit tentative when embarking on this project on Sinus Pain. However, using the grit and determination we have, we have produced some fine reading material on Sinus Pain. :o.

There are Home Remedies for Sinus Problems to Replace Decongestants Like Menthol as Well

For example sniffing an onion produces the same kind of stimulation because of irritation as is produced by menthol etc. and makes the nose to run. To clear a stuffed nose all that one needs to do is to make it run. So it is also advisable to take a lot of spicy stuff. A hot or spicy food makes our body to produce some reflex action like making the nose to run. An idle brain, is a devil's workshop they say. Using this ideology in mind, we ventured to write on Sinus Problem, so that something productive would be achieved of our minds. :lol:

One of the Most Common Infections, the World Over, is Sinus

The bones near the nose contain cavities, also known as sinuses. An infection in the sinuses causes a sinus attack. The sinus swells due to such infections leading to headache, fever, difficulty in breathing and other discomforts. This physical condition is known as the sinusitis. Though there are surgeries for sinusitis, home remedies for sinus infection are a better option. :roll:

However, as Mentioned Earlier, Chronic Infection Needs Prolonged Treatment

Moreover, if the problem still persists even after the above mentioned home remedies for sinus infection, it is advised to consult a doctor. There is a lot of jargon connected with Sinus Remedies. However, we have eliminated the difficult ones, and only used the ones understood by everyone.

Paste of cinnamon and water, or ginger with milk or water, or basil leaves mixed with cloves and dried ginger, when applied on the forehead provides instant relief. In addition to these, other home remedies like intake of ripe grape juice, having jalape'o peppers and warm tea, all have positive effects.

By treating symptoms like headache, severe pain and nasal blockages, comfort can be achieved. But acute sinusitis demands a prolonged treatment. In addition to antibiotics and sinus therapies, home remedies for sinus infections can prove to be quite effective. Taking in steam from a vaporizer or a container of hot water can provide immediate relief by decongestanting the blockage. A hot or cold compress, i.e an absorbent pad pressed on to a part of the body to relieve inflammation, over the inflamed problem area is also effective in reducing the pain, and, thus, is one of the best home remedies for sinus infections.
