Sinusitis - Conditions That Lead to It!

Sinusitis - Conditions That Lead to It!

Sinuses are cavities in our skull behind the nose which spread out in a pattern. These cavities are lined with tissues and mucosal membranes and are essential for our breathing process. Sinusitis is a condition where the tissues within the cavities become inflamed which results in the sinus cavities being blocked due to a buildup of fluid.

What are the conditions that can lead to sinusitis?
Some of the conditions that can cause nasal polyps are explained as follows:

  1. Nasal polyps are small growths of tissue within the lining of the nose which may block the sinuses, resulting in sinusitis.
  2. Common cold is also a culprit which may result in sinusitis
  3. If your septum or the bridge between the holes of the nose is deviated (this condition is referred to as a deviated septum), you may be prone to developing sinusitis.
  4. The lining of the nose may swell in a condition known as allergic rhinitis and cause sinusitis as well.

Types of sinusitis
There are multiple types of sinusitis which may affect people and also on how long they last. The various types of sinusitis are explained below:

  1. Acute sinusitis: This is the most common form of sinusitis that lasts usually between 2 to 4 weeks. It starts with a cold, blocked nose and turns into facial pain that usually starts very suddenly.
  2. Chronic sinusitis: This is a form of sinus infection which can have a debilitating effect on your life and may last for 12 weeks or longer.
  3. Sub-acute sinusitis: This is somewhere between acute and chronic sinusitis and may last from anywhere between 4 to 12 weeks.
  4. Recurrent sinusitis: This form of sinus infections tend to be a variation of acute or sub-acute sinusitis which tends to occur multiple times a year.

Symptoms of sinusitis
The manifestation of the symptoms of sinusitis may be different from person to person and also on the type of sinusitis you are suffering from. However, there are some generic symptoms that are common to all forms which are mentioned as follows:

  1. Smelling senses may be dulled
  2. Facial pain
  3. Congestion accompanied by a cough
  4. Nose may be blocked, stuffy and may also be runny
  5. Other symptoms may also include bad breath, fatigue, or even dental pain
  6. Nasal cavity may have pus and it may drain from time to time

It is best to consult a doctor quickly, if you have been having any of these symptoms. The doctor can prescribe nasal decongestants and antibiotics which can help. If you have chronic or recurrent sinusitis, then more aggressive and advanced treatments may be required. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ent Specialist.

I am 34 old and am suffering from breathing problem before two years I had went to surgery for sinus I feel good after that but again problem is coming.

Sinusitis and breathing problem are not acute complaints like common cold or fever. So there is chance of recurrence even after surgery or inhalers. Homoeoapthic approach is to treat the cause as you it is altered immunity which produces any disease. So this altered immunity has to be corrected with a homoeopathic medicine selected after studying your genetic make up on consultation.

I am suffering from continuous airy noise in my right ear since a year. In the beginning it was irregular, occurring for a few seconds then went away. But with time it started to happen 24×7. Allopathy doctors described it normal and diagnosed cold to be the cause. But comes possibility was ruled out in the x-ray. There are no hearing defects as I went through that test as well. Homeopathy doctor said there is an issue with the nerves. No great results. Can someone please give me a clue as to what it might be and what is the possible way out.

Hello Madam, From what you have mentioned, I feel you are suffering with Tinnitus. This is an intermittent or constant sound in the ear - it can be hissing, ringing, buzzing, air escaping sound etc. Though it is an inconvenience it is rarely serious. I would suggest you to see a good ENT surgeon. He may do other tests like hearing test etc and depending on the severity of your symptoms he may also suggest you treatment options. I hope this has helped you Thank you.

I am 70 year old male and have been suffering from pharyngitis for over 18 years now. I have not found a cure yet despite my unremitting efforts. The pain on both sides of my throat are severe at times and I am forced to rely on analgesic and anti-histamine medicines. Please help me overcome this suffering.

I think you may have some problem in nose - either deviated nasal septum or sinus problem. Due to this problem you may have chronic post-nasal discharge wich is causing recurrent pharyngitis. So, it is my advice to take ct scan of paranasal sinuses to find nasal cause.

Kindly stop using otrivin. As, long usage of this, wil result in rebound nose block. You must be having dust allergy and sinusitis. Meet ENT specialist for antibiotic advice. Start steroid nasal spray for 2 month continuously. If no improvement in 3 weeks get a CT scan of PNS. Avoid dust, wear mask to reduce exposure while driving Do not take cold items With this we can keep disease under control. Remember there is no cure for dust allergy. We treat according to your symptoms. But with above treatment you can lead no rmal life without much problems.

You may have an ear infection. It could be caused due to colds or allergies. You will need a course of antibiotics to clear the infection. Please consult for prescription. For now do warm saline gargle and steam inhalation 3 times a day.

I suffered from a minor ear congestion and trauma a few days ago for which I have been taking medicines and an ear drop daily. The doctor gave me Cetirizine 10mg, Paracetamol and Ciplox D. The medication doesn't seem to have any affect on me as yet. How long does such type of injury takes to heal? Can I still play badminton this week? Will running and any other activity put my ear in danger.

The ear condition you have mentioned takes at least 2-3 weeks to heal completely. Sine you are diabetic it may take a little bit longer time to heal please check your blood glucose level and control the diabetes. Exercise does not increase the ear condition if you donot have pain you may stop paracetamol and cetrizine. If you donot have improvement please report again to the ent doctor for review and advise.

Dear lybrate-user, White spot inside your neck is may be because of tonsillitis. Its better to avoid cold and sour food products, avoid spicy, oily and junk food, avoid canned juices, sauces. Take lukewarm tea, home made light food, fresh fruits. Do gargling daily. Consult your nearest and expert physician and follow his prescription.
