Inhaling steam

Sinus infections are usually treated with prescription and non-prescription medications accompanied by homecare remedies.  One of these home remedies is using a vaporizer or inhaling steam from a pan of hot water for about 2 to 4 times a day.  After the water has boiled, the pan should be taken off the stove and covered with a towel so that the steam remains under the cloth.  The patient should find a comfortable position and lean over pan of water and inhale the steam continuously for 10 minutes.  As an option, a menthol or aromatic preparation can be added to the water.  Alternative to inhaling steam can be taking long, steamy showers or getting a facial sauna.
