There are two types of sinusitis. Acute sinusitis is often caused by a bacterial infection and usually develops as a complication of a viral respiratory infection such as the common cold. Chronic sinusitis may also be caused by bacterial infection, but is more often a chronic inflammatory disorder similar to bronchial asthma.

Symptoms of sinusitis include :

  • Thick yellow or green mucous that runs from the nose or down the throat
  • Unusual bad taste or bad breadth
  • Nasal stuffiness
  • Facial pain or pressure
  • Cough
  • Headache
  • Toothache
  • Fever and chills
  • Fatigue
  • Swelling around the eyes or cheeks

You should consult your doctor is you develop sinusitis, and the common treatment for sinusitis involves one or more of the following :

  • Between 10 and 14 days of antibiotics for acute sinusitis. No antibiotics are needed for chronic sinusitis
  • Decongestants
  • Steroid nasal sprays
  • A seawater or saline nasal wash
  • Treating underlying allergies (if there are any) with medications and/ or allergy shots.
  • Surgery should be considered only if treatment from your doctor does not work, or if there is something blocking the sinuses, that cannot be treated with medicine.
