Sinus Infections

Sinus infection

Sinus is a major health problem. Sinusitis is an inflammation of sinuses. Often caused by bacterial infections. Also sometimes, viruses and fungi cause it. People with weak immune system are more likely to develop bacterial or fungal sinusitis. Some people with other allergies can have allergical fungal sinusitis. Acute sinusitis lasts for three to eight weeks.

The sinuses are air-filled cavities. They are located:

Within the bony structure of the cheeks

Behind the forehead and eyebrows

Symptoms

The most common symptom of sinusitis, and often the most unpleasant, is pain. You have several different sinuses above and below your eyes, and behind your nose. Any of these can hurt when you have a sinus infection.

Inflammation and swelling in the sinuses causes them to ache with a dull pressure. You may feel pain in your forehead, on either side of your nose, in your upper jaws and teeth, or between your eyes.

Congestion

At the same time that you’re dealing with the drainage, your inflamed sinuses may also be restricting how well you can breathe through your nose. The infection causes swelling in your sinuses and in your nasal passages. Because of the nasal congestion, you’ll probably experience a reduced sense of smell and taste.

Any time you’re unsure of what’s going on with your health, you should see your doctor. In particular, make an appointment if you have a fever or if you have a sinus infection that lasts for weeks and keeps coming back. Summiturgentcare365 offers you help without any prior appointments.
