Ease Sinus Pressure Caused By Seasonal Allergies

| Posted on April 21, 2017


Along with the excitement for longer days and budding spring flowers come the signature symptoms of seasonal allergies; sneezing, coughing, runny nose, and dry, itchy eyes. More than 3 million individuals in the United States suffer from seasonal allergies each year, triggered most commonly by grass, pollen, and mold.

In most parts of the United States seasonal allergies start in February or March and last until early summer. A mild winter or an excessively rainy spring can stimulate more rapid plant growth and cause allergy symptoms to endure later in the summer and fall.


You may not realize that your sinuses are actually air-filled pockets behind your cheeks, forehead, eyebrows, and nose. The narrow passageways composing your sinuses can get clogged easily by contaminants such as dust, pollen, and other air particles. Ideally, your sinuses are lined with a protective layer of mucus that traps this particulates. Your body will naturally take anything trapped in the mucus down your throat and into the stomach.

Pain and pressure occurs when inflamed tissue keeps the sinuses from draining properly. If you suffer from seasonal allergies, breathing in particles of grass, pollen, and mold will cause your sinuses to swell and become painful. Below we are going to suggest two ways that you can use the Bruder Moist Heat/Cold Sinus Compress to help alleviate your seasonal allergy symptoms.


As we discussed above, painful sinus pressure occurs when swelling in your nasal tissue prevents proper drainage from your sinuses. Your nasal tissue can become irritated from inhaling various air particles or by something as arbitrary as an atmospheric change in pressure. To reduce swelling in your nasal tissue, apply a therapeutic cold compress, like the Bruder Sinus Compress.

Keep your Bruder Sinus Compress in the freezer for several hours prior to use. Remove the mask from the freezer when you are ready to relax for 5-10 minutes with the mask over your eyes, eyebrows, forehead, and nose. The patented MediBeads technology delivers a medically safe and consistent amount of cold. Just enough to help alleviate swelling from your nasal tissue and pressure from your sinuses.
