What should I know about caring for someone with sinusitis?

When caring for someone with sinusitis, you should make sure that they follow their doctor's advice for treatment if prescribed. It is also very important for them to get proper rest and to drink plenty of fluids.

Keeping the home free from pollutants, cigarette smoke, and other irritants that cause the nasal passageway and the lungs to swell is also important.
