I’ve had a major sinus headache for 2 days and finally emailed my nurse.  She said unfortunately Tylenol is all they recommend.  But, she said if you think it’s a legit sinus infection (vs. allergies) to go see your doctor.  I think there are some antibiotics that you can take while pregnant.

I’ve had 2 sinus infections since becoming pregnant.

Both times have been prescribed antibiotics – but toughed it out and didnt take them.

My doc also advised sudafed and tylenol was safe too, but didnt take these either.

I did the nettipot and it really helped open things up.  Look up online the list of drugs you can take.  My doc said I could do tylenol or claritin.

Get checked out, you could alse have a dental infection giving you very similar symptoms and that requires antibiotics and possibly drainage.

I’m fairly certain Tylenol and Sudafed are both safe, but defintiely don’t take my word for it! I would recommend the netti pot as well, and if it helps at all, do it regularly to prevent any build up of… sinus gunk. But def make sure to use sterilized water and I’d get the kind with the powder you can mix in to the water and make it more sterile or whatever (I bought it at CVS, squeezy bottle so easier than an actual pot).

Also with sinus pressure and headaches (I get that a lot not pregnant) laying with a hot or cold towel on your forehead can help a lot too, and possible a cold towel on the back pf your neck. Try them all and see if any feel better.

Have you tried Sinus Buster?  It’s an all-natural pepper spray type nose spray that opens up the sinuses and lets them drain.  I swear by it.

You can get it at regular stores like Walgreens, etc.
