Summary: Sinusitis is a sinus infection in which there is an inflammation or swelling in the tissues the sinuses. In normal healthy cases the sinuses are filled with air. But when they get inflamed, they block up leading to build of fluid in it.


These fluids contain germs that can grow up and cause an infection. Sinusitis can be a result of infection, allergies, air pollution, or any structural problems in the nose. Although, in most of the cases the cause is a viral infection. But when the symptoms last for more than 10 days than it suggests a bacterial infection. People who suffer from reoccurring sinus infections are the ones suffering from asthma, cystic fibrosis, and poor immune function. In today's era the common causes for sinusitis are from common cold, allergic rhinitis that is swelling of the lining of the nose, small growths in the lining of the nose called nasal polyps, blocked drainage ducts, structural differences that narrow the ducts, and a deviated septum, that is the shift in the nasal cavity.

If the home remedies and nasal sprays are not providing required relief than a course of following medication and surgery is followed:


·         Antibiotics: These are given when the symptoms are not going within 10 days. Amoxicillin/clavulanate are recommended mostly. The other antibiotics like Fluoroquinolones like clarithromycin or a tetracycline like doxycycline are used for people who have severe allergies to penicillins. The antibiotic course is for 3 to 7 days for moderate sinusitis and may range upto 10 days for acute bacterial sinusitis.


·         Surgery: In cases when an individual suffers from chronic or recurring sinusitis a surgery may be required. The nasal surgery is suggested for people who are not at all benefitting from medication and suffer from more than 7 times in a year with sinusitis. Functional endoscopic sinus surgery is the first surgery used today for the surgical treatment of chronic sinusitis. FESS is a procedure to unblock the sinus opening in the nose. It allows the sinuses to heal and decrease the discharge, pain, and pressure.
