Sinus infection: Beware!

Do you feel pain over your cheeks and upper teeth, pain in the forehead, above the eyebrow, pain behind the eyes or on top of the head? Well don’t just relax and disregard these symptoms because you might have a sinus problem that may result form a serious sinus infection!

According to medical study, Sinusitis is an infection or inflammation of the mucous membranes that line the inside of the nose and sinuses. Sinuses are hollow spaces, or cavities, located around your eyes, cheeks, and nose. Studies shows that when a mucous membrane becomes inflamed, it enlarge, blocking the passage way of fluid from the sinuses into the nose and throat, which causes pressure and pain in the sinuses. Due to the pain it gives to the patient, commonly difficulties in draining the sinuses transpire. Thus, bacteria and fungus are more likely to grow in sinuses that are unable to drain properly causing a more serious sinus infection.

What are the common symptoms of a sinusitis and how can we avoid it?

Typically symptoms of bacterial sinusitis include sinus congestion, sinus discharge, sinus pressure, and facial pain or headaches from sinus pressure. However, a common fault of many sufferers was they do not recognize that they are experiencing bacterial sinusitis and confuse their symptoms with cold symptoms. Thus, they ignore to seek proper diagnosis or treatment believing it was only a typical cold.

Avoiding sinusitis is always easy. There are many treatment choices which are currently available for sinusitis. Prescription medication like Antibiotics, Antihistamines, Decongestants, Leukotrinenes and Mucolytics are the common way to cure the infection. However, if in case a severe sinus infection was detected a complex treatment is needed such as Nasal Saline Irrigation & Steam Inhalation, Reflux Medications, Steroids and Over-the-Counter (OTC) Medication is conducted to treat the infection.

Once you have decided which type of treatment you wish to avail to avoid your problem, always approach your treatment with confidence, a positive mental attitude, and a thorough understanding of the anticipated outcome is a great help to your condition. It is important to set realistic goals for your recovery — and to be willing to work steadily toward achieving those goals.

Bear in mind that a healthy lifestyle is the answer to any health problems. Taking care of oneself and not abusing its capacity will always be recommended.

Doctor’s advice prevention is better than cure. So, if you feel to have these symptoms, visit immediate your doctor for diagnostic. Beware of SINUS infection for sure you do not want to be a victim of it!
