Symptoms and Treatment of Sinusitis

MS - ENT, MBBS
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Symptoms and Treatment of Sinusitis

The inflammatory condition of your sinuses (marked by inflammation of your nasal cavities) caused due to viral, bacterial or fungal infection; any autoimmune disorders or allergic reaction is known as sinusitis. This condition is also referred to as 'rhinosinusitis' as nose inflammation occurs. Sinusitis can be either acute, sub-acute or chronic in nature. Acute sinusitis is generally caused due to the common cold and lasts not more than four weeks. Sub-acute sinusitis is more prolonged in nature and lasts for about eight weeks. Chronic sinusitis is more severe in nature and can last for up to twelve weeks or even more.

The most common symptoms of sinusitis are as follows: 

  1. Severe headache
  2. Nose blockage
  3. Release of yellowish green fluids from your nose.
  4. Fever
  5. Difficulty in breathing
  6. Painful sensation in your eyes, ears and forehead.
  7. Post nasal discharge
  8. Frequent cough
  9. A sore throat
  10. Nausea
  11. Body fatigue
  12. Neck stiffness
  13. Tastelessness and anosmia (loss of smell)

The treatment methods available for sinusitis are as follows:

  • Intake of painkillers like paracetamol can give you temporary relief from your aches. But consuming too much of these can cause side effects such as loss of appetite and drowsiness.
  • Keep yourself hydrated by drinking about 2 to 3 liters of water every day and take proper rest.
  • Steam inhalation can give you relief from nasal congestion.
  • Using nasal sprays like Oxymetazoline can also give you temporary relief.
  • Your doctor may advise you antibiotics like Amoxicillin in your sinusitis is chronic in nature.
  • Immunotherapy helps to treat sinusitis if your sinusitis is caused due to allergic reactions.
  • Your doctor may also recommend an endoscopic surgery of the sinus if your condition is found to be very severe.

Why milk affects sinusitis patient? Is there some remedy for this or I gotta quit milk.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Hello Waking up with a headache, and on top of it a blocked nose is a rough start to the day. If this becomes a routine occurrence and even the face hurts with general heaviness in the head, it’s a medical condition called Sinusitis. Sinuses are air-filled cavities within the skull bone. These hollow spaces in the skull are situated in cheek bones, forehead, behind the bridge of the nose and between the eyes. Another set is situated in the upper region of the nose and behind the eyes. All the sinuses have the same lining that is present in the nose. This lining produces mucus, which is drained out of the sinuses through an opening in the nose. When a person has cold or allergy, swelling in the nose and sinuses can cause the drainage to get blocked. This results in the mucus being trapped in the sinuses, leading to the growth of bacteria and viruses. The inflammation of these sinuses is referred to as Sinusitis. The Homeopathic mode of treatment can completely cure Sinusitis, though it does take time. The Homeopathic remedies for sinus infections, are made of natural substances and have zero side effects, which rebuild the body’s immunity to Sinusitis. Symptoms of Sinusitis The symptoms of Sinusitis depend upon the sinus that gets affected. The symptoms include morning headache, blocked sensation in the nose, and heaviness and pain in the facial bones. Inflammation in the sinuses behind the bridge of the nose and in between the eyes can lead to swelling in the eyelids and the tissues around the eyes. Inflammation in the maxillary sinuses can result in pain in the upper jaw and teeth. Symptoms of severe sinus infection may be accompanied by nasal congestion, running nose, fever, tiredness and cough that may aggravate at night. Post-nasal dripping of mucus can cause problems in the throat too. Homoeopathy for sinus problems:- Homeopathic medicines can be of great help in the treatment of Sinusitis. The natural Homeopathic mode of treatment aims at rebuilding the body’s immunity to Sinusitis. The Homeopathic treatment for sinusitis can completely cure the chronicity and recurrence of Sinusitis, though it may take some time. I dont think milk has any adverse effects on sinus problems. Thanks Any queries pls ask

MBBS, cc USG
General Physician, Gurgaon
If symptoms are sneezing, running nose, blocked nose 1. Take proper rest/ lot of fluids 2. Take proper home made diet. 3. Steam inhalation carefully by steam inhaler twice a day for 2-3 days frequent/ continuous cough cold may be because of many reasons like: 1. Any ent problem like dns polyp sinusitis 2. Low immunity 3. Allergic condition so you need to consult ENT doctor for proper examination and further management.

However, I am used to Ayurvedic Choornas and laxatives now and can't regulate bowel movements without them. I need a permanent cure.

Hi I'm a 19 year old male and I'm suffering from canker sore, I know that it is mainly due to lack of water for me and sometimes I just forget to drink water at all due my concentration level I guess such as while playing games and doing interesting research or working on some project. Please tell me how to inculcate such a habit so that I never forget to drink water. Thanks.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only by making it a habit to carry water with you and drink every half hour Most canker sores clear on their own in one to two weeks. Treatments, if needed, include mouth rinses, pastes and medication..

I stopped the use of an eye drop acupat after using it for 2 months, 10 days ago. However a sinus infection caused by its sude effect has not gone away. I am afraid that is it a long term side effect or it will go away? What shall I do to get rid of it?

DORL, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Faridabad
Sometimes if the connection between nose and eyes duct is wide and you put eye drops this will go into nose and produces irritation and congestion and if congestion stays for long time this leads to infection, if having infection in nose than take antibiotics and decongestant under guidance from nose surgeon.

Common cause of an itchy throat then is dehydration which causes the throat to become dry and hoarse as the body can no longer produce mucus. The obvious solution to this dehydration is to drink water. Similarly other behaviours can strain your throat – such as shouting loudly, singing loudly (and using incorrect technique – and snoring. Some medicines (antidepressants among others) and smoking which coats the throat in tar .

Measles is a viral infection of the respiratory system. Your symptoms are attributed to it. Take a light meal till you feel better. Avoid oily & spicy foods. Simple home food should be fine. Drink plenty of water.

7 Ways to Get Rid of Mouth Sores

7 Ways to Get Rid of Mouth Sores

One of the irritating conditions that can affect the mouth of a person is sores, which can be quite painful. These sores can affect anyone of any age group or gender. Sores may make it difficult for a person to eat, speak or even swallow. Here are a few ways through which you can get rid of mouth sores quickly or at least alleviate the symptoms to lessen the pain:

1. Topical Products - There are various types of creams and lotions which are available in the market as over the counter drugs for treating or at least lessening the symptoms of mouth sores. Some of the common chemicals used to treat the sores are Fluocinonide, Benzocaine and Hydrogen peroxide.

2. Food and nutritional supplements - In many cases the sores are caused within the body due to deficiency of nutrients such as Zinc, Vitamin B12 or B6 and the doctor may prescribe special medications to supplement the need for those within the body.

3. Rinses - Certain special types of oral rinses are prescribed by the doctors when treating mouth sores. Most of the rinses prescribed by the doctors have a steroid, namely dexamethasone, which proves to be effective in the treatment of mouth sores.

4. Cauterizing or destroying sores - In certain cases where topical or oral treatments haven't worked it may be necessary to correct it by cauterizing or using a special device to burn and destroy the sore so that new tissues can grow in its place.

5. Oral medications - Certain oral medications may be prescribed for sores which are caused due to underlying physical conditions such as ulcers.

6. Avoiding spicy food - Spicy foods are also a leading cause for canker sores as it may cause chemical imbalances within the stomach as well as inside the mouth and hence should be avoided as much as possible.

7. Improving general oral hygiene - Regular brushing, flossing, and proper oral care will definitely reduce the chances of getting oral sores.
