Sinusitis is the medical term for inflammation (irritation and swelling) of the sinuses.
It’s usually caused by infection.
Our sinuses are the moist air spaces within the bones of the face around the nose.
v Frontal sinuses are located in the area near the eyebrows;
v Maxillary sinuses are located inside the cheekbones;
v Ethmoid sinuses are between the eyes;
v Sphenoid sinuses sit behind the ethmoid sinuses.
- Sinusitis is caused by a variety of bacteria
- Sinusitis often begins after an acute respiratory infection, which very often could be viral.
- Less commonly it may occur after a tooth extraction or other dental procedures, or after diving or swimming in contaminated water.
- Sometimes sudden changes in the climate, especially the sudden movement into cold climes, can also trigger an attack.
- Patients with AIDS, and other immuno compromised patients are more prone to attacks of fungal sinusitis.
- An attack begins with the inflammation of the nasal mucous membrane. This causes an obstruction of the opening of the sinus leading eventually to secretions accumulating in the sinus with associated pain and swelling.
Symptoms of sinusitis
The symptoms of sinusitis include:
- Pain or pressure in the forehead, cheeks, nose and between the eyes
- Nasal congestion
- Reduced sense of smell and taste
- Cough, which may be worse at night
- Bad breath (called halitosis)
- An ache in the teeth
Prevention is better than cure
- Colds and flu are spread primarily when an infected person coughs or sneezes near someone else.
- A very common method for transmitting a cold is by shaking hands.
- Everyone should always wash their hands before eating and after going outside. Ordinary soap is sufficient.
- Waterless hand cleaners that contain an alcohol-based gel are also effective for every day use and may even kill cold viruses. (They are less effective, however, if extreme hygiene is required. In such cases, alcohol-based rinses are needed.)
- Antibacterial soaps add little protection, particularly against viruses.
- Wiping surfaces with a solution that contains one part bleach to 10 parts water is very effective in killing viruses.
Treatment for Sinusitis
If you have acute sinusitis, you should use over-the-counter( please note self medication is highly injuries to health) or prescription decongestant nose drops and sprays only for few days. If you use these medicines for longer periods, they can lead to even more congestion and swelling of your nasal passages. If you have an allergic disease along with sinusitis, you may also need medicine to control allergies.
Symptomatic Homeopathy medicines help to increase the immune power to act against recurrent infections and allergy. Symptomatic Homeo medicines act well in sinusitis without any side effect.
