My sinuses are always dry.I use natty pot everyday but an hour later my nose is stopped up again.My nose was broken when I was 10yrs old.I don't know if that has anything to do with my problem or not.Now that spring is here I also have the headaches.I don't have runny nose or itchy eyes.My doctor asked me if I have allergies.But I told him none that I know of.Is there a homemade remedy or something not costly that I can use that will relieve my problems?

Sinusitis Answer A6205

The old nasal trauma might have caused deviation of the septum. this might have additionally caused air turbulence that contributes to the dry nasal mucosa.
You might want to have your nasal cavity examined.
Meanwhile, taking over the counter anti-inflammatory sprays might be helpful.
