Sinus Infections Q & A

What Is a Sinus Infection?woman walking on the beach blowing her nose due to having sinusitis or a sinus infection

The sinuses are the hollow chambers behind the nose, cheeks, and eyes, which help to moisten, warm, and filter the air. When a virus or bacteria attacks the sinuses, they become infected, resulting in inflammation as the body fights it off. This results in the congestion, runny nose, watery and itchy eyes, and headaches that plague many patients. These symptoms are often associated with the common cold, although a cold is a respiratory disease that often causes a sinus infection.

Is a Sinus Infection Different from Sinusitis?

Sinusitis occurs when a person experiences chronic sinus infections that either do not clear up or occur recurrently. This chronic inflammation of the sinus cavities can be caused by infection, allergies, or autoimmune disorders. Patients with sinusitis can also develop as a complication following viral and bacterial respiratory infections.

How Is Sinusitis Treated?

In many cases, over-the-counter medications will alleviate your symptoms enough for you to rest and allow your body to fight off the infection. However, when the condition does not clear up with a couple of days of rest, or if the infection is bacterial, the doctor may prescribe antibiotics. If the condition is due to allergies, the doctor will test to determine what substances are causing the reaction and provide you with medications to control your allergic reactions and help you to learn strategies to avoid exposure to the allergens. People who suffer from regular sinus infections or sinusitis should avoid smoking and other chemical vapors which can further irritate your sinuses. It is important to have a medical assessment when you experience chronic sinusitis as there may be other factors contributing to your illness. Drs. Nejat and Kiehm are experienced in diagnosing and treating sinusitis, helping their patients to lead healthier and more fulfilling lives. If you suffer from chronic sinus infections, make an appointment for an assessment today.
