Swimming, spa’s and sauna’s etc have never been my thing so to those who use them I wanted to ask 2 things

1) How much do they really help sinus health? Are there real benefits or is it just a feel good thing?

2) What is appropriate clothing in a sauna? I’m not the bikini type and will wear as much as I can but I don’t want to look odd

1) Saunas will help in sinus disease.

2) Nude or one piece bathing suit ;-)
Wrap large towel round yourself or wear loose cotton top & shorts.
You might as well just put your head over a bowl of boiling water and a towel over your head - it doesn't cost anything either. My sister has chronic rhinitis with nasal polyps and she finds here nose is better when she is in a dry atmosphere so it might not even work at all.

Thanks guys, I’l give it a shot

Yes I do have a shower at home and the steam provides some relief (apart from the odd times when it’s really bad and I have to resort to Vicks). However I have a family who complain about a damp bathroom if I’m in there too long.

The bowl over the head thing doesn’t really help, not sure why

237SJ - I get what your sister means on dry days in summer I do notice improvement whereas with rain my sinuses are often stuffy. I think being surrounded by steam is very different though the moisture just loosens everything somehow.

Adding Menthol Crystals to the bowl of hot water can be beneficial but you've probably tried that.
