What Causes Sinusitis?
Sinusitis refers to a sinus infection, a problem that develops when mucus builds up inside the sinuses. Membranes inside each sinus produce mucus that drains into the nasal passages. When the membranes become inflamed, however, they block the opening, trapping mucus inside the sinus cavities, and leading to an infection.
Sinusitis is usually caused by allergies or when viruses spread to your sinuses. Structural issues in your nose, such as enlarged turbinates, a deviated septum, or polyps, can also block the openings to your sinuses, preventing mucus from draining properly.
What Are the Signs of Sinusitis?
With sinusitis, your face may feel tender, especially on the bridge of your nose or under your eyes. Look for these common symptoms of a sinus infection:
- Postnasal drip
- Facial fullness
- Stuffiness or congestion
- Greenish nasal discharge
- Frontal headaches
- Teeth pain
- Bad breath
What if My Sinusitis Won't Go Away?
Sinusitis typically heals within four weeks. However, chronic sinusitis is a type of sinus infection that persists for some time. You may feel like it's improving, but then your full-blown symptoms come right back. Chronic sinusitis may linger on for months at a time without effective care at Cure Allergy Clinic.
How Is Sinusitis Diagnosed?
We will examine your nose, throat, and sinuses, looking for signs of sinusitis. They make take cultures of mucus and examine the inside of your nose and sinuses with a slim device with a camera on the end. Once we have identified the root cause, we can recommend the right treatment plan for you.
We also evaluate underlying factors that are tied to sinusitis, such as:
- Structural defects
- Weakened immune system
How Is Sinusitis Treated?
Because chronic sinusitis is often due to an underlying allergy, we address the source of the problem with immunotherapy. This treatment works by building up your natural immunity to an allergen or allergens over time.
