Understanding Sinusitis: Types, Treatments

What is Sinusitis?

Sinusitis occurs when the lining of the sinus cavities becomes swollen or inflamed, leading to symptoms such as facial pain, nasal congestion, headaches, and difficulty breathing. It can be acute (short-term) or chronic (long-lasting), often triggered by infections, allergies, or structural issues in the sinuses.

Types of Sinusitis

  1. Acute Sinusitis: Typically lasts less than four weeks and is often a result of a viral infection, such as the common cold. It may also stem from bacterial infections.
  2. Chronic Sinusitis: Lasting longer than twelve weeks, chronic sinusitis might be caused by persistent infections, allergies, or anatomical abnormalities in the nasal passages.

Symptoms of Sinusitis

Symptoms of sinusitis vary but commonly include:

  • Nasal congestion
  • Facial pressure or pain
  • Difficulty breathing through the nose
  • Discolored nasal discharge
  • Headaches

Treatment for Sinusitis

Treatment approaches for sinusitis aim to alleviate symptoms and address underlying causes. They may include:

  • Nasal Decongestants: Over-the-counter or prescription decongestants can help relieve nasal congestion.
  • Nasal Irrigation: Using saline solutions to flush out nasal passages can ease symptoms.
  • Antibiotics: If the sinusitis is bacterial, antibiotics may be prescribed by a healthcare professional.
