Chronic Sinus Infections: Sinus Infection Symptoms

Sinus infections are one of the most common infections across the world. Sinus attacks are caused by an infection in the sinuses or cavities that are present in the bones near the nose. When there is any swelling in these sinuses because of some infection, breathing becomes difficult resulting in fever, headaches, and other discomforts. This is known as sinusitis. Embarassed



  • There are many over-the-counter decongestions and pain killers available to provide relief from sinus infections.
  • These can be in the form of tablets or sprays.
  • There are also home remedies for sinus infections like a cold/hot compress, jalapeno pepper, ripe grape juice, etc.
  • These can provide effective relief from sinus symptoms.
  • But acute or chronic sinusitis requires continuous treatment from a specialist. Very Happy



Other common symptoms for sinus infections are pain in the head, ear or neck; headaches early in the morning; pain in the upper jaw/ cheeks /teeth; swelling of the eyelids; pain between the eyes; nasal discharge; stuffy nose; loss of smell; and tenderness near the nose. Sometimes, there could be fever, tiredness, weakness, severe cough and runny nose. Sinusitis can be diagnosed by tapping the sinus areas with fingertips. Very rarely, acute sinusitis can lead to infection in the brain or some other complications. Enhancing your vocabulary is our intention with the writing of this article on Sinus Symptoms. We have used new and interesting words to achieve this.

There are different kinds of sinus infection symptoms depending upon the sinus that is infected. There can be pain anywhere near these sinuses. With frontal sinuses there can be pain over the eyes in the brow area; with maxillary sinuses, inside each cheekbone; with ethmoid sinuses, just behind the bridge of the nose and between the eyes; and with sphenoid sinuses, behind the ethmoids in the upper region of the nose and behind the eyes. This pain is the most common symptom for sinusitis.

Each sinus or cavity in the skull has an opening that allows free exchange of mucus and air. Each sinus is joined to the other by a mucous membrane lining. When there is an infection like hay fever or a disease like asthma, these sinuses and the lining become inflamed, causing air and mucus to be blocked inside or a vacuum to be created. This can cause pressure on the sinus walls, causing severe pain. There are four kinds of sinuses: frontal sinuses, maxillary sinuses, ethmoid sinuses, and sphenoid sinuses. Any part of these four sinuses can be infected, causing pain in that particular area. Evil or Very Mad

As part of our efforts to chronicle the experiences of sinusitis sufferers, a gentleman named Carlton contributed a 'Sinusitis Treatment Success' story. Rolling Eyes

'Jens Panikau, sinus researcher at Mayo Clinic, has published a new finding that explains why sinus disease persists despite so many new drugs. Dr Panikau found that the main cause of sinus symptoms was that the eosinophiles ' your special cells that defend your body against infection, - get into the mucus and produce a toxic product called MBP that is made in order to kill bacteria. Unfortunately, among sinus sufferers, there is an excess of this MBP in the mucus that also damages the cells of the nose and impairs its ability to sweep bacteria out of the nose. Dr Panikau shows that it is the MBP that makes the patient sick, with fever, pain, fatigue, and secondary infections.' Do not judge a book by its cover; so don't just scan through this matter on Sinus Symptoms. read it thoroughly to judge its value and importance.

Had 2 Different Allergy Tests, Both Negative

The Mayo/U. of Buffalo research says this is not an allergic reaction like a pollen allergy, so it wouldn't show up in an allergy test. It's an over reaction to fungus by T-cells that damage the sinus lining and gives bacteria a place to grow. Most people have no reaction, but most people acute and chronic sinusitis do. Apparently there is a test, but ENT's are skeptical. Mine said the fungus idea was false and suggested surgery. If I was cynical, I might think his opinion was because there's no surgical solution. It is rather interesting to note that people like reading about Sinusitis if they are presented in an easy and clear way. The presentation of an article too is important for one to entice people to read it!

Hopefully the follow-on work of the Eastern michigan university of Buffalo will identify antifungal treatments that can finally go after the root cause of recurring sinus infection. Sinus sufferers should be aware of these research efforts and be ready to discuss these findings with their ENT specialists. Maybe serious help is finally on the way. It is always better to have compositions with as little corrections in it as possible. This is why we have written this composition on Sinus with no corrections for the reader to be more interested in reading it.



  • This is leading edge stuff.
  • Mayo received a patent on anti-fungal treatments.
  • I decided to try this approach after everything else failed.
  • I don't want surgery, because I've never heard of one that worked. Surprised
  • He pointed out a study conducted by the Mayo clinic and the University of Buffalo addressing the issue of recurring sinus infection.
  • It states that "chronic sinusitis is an immune disorder caused by fungus." We were actually wondering how to get about to writing about Sinus.
  • However once we started writing, the words just seemed to flow continuously!



Another article in the Health Solutions Newsletter of Sept 2005 also referred to the Mayo Clinic/U. of Buffalo study and adds further clarification. Their article was entitled 'Mayo Clinic Announces Startling New Sinus Discovery' The presentation of an treating sinus disease plays an important role in getting the reader interested in reading it. This is the reason for this presentation, which has gotten you interested in reading it!



  • Start using pulsating nasal irrigation to cleanse the nose of crusty old mucus which could be carrying toxins. 2.
  • Test your environment to see if you are exposed to high levels of fungus.



Anyone who suffers from recurring sinus infection issues and who cannot find adequate relief after treatment by an otolaryngologist or after unsuccessful surgery are urged to do what Carlton has done: It is with much interest that we got about to write on Sinusitis. So we do hope that you too read this article with the same, if not more interest! Surprised.



  • If the tests are positive for fungus, try to improve your environment to lower the amount of fungus you are exposed to.
  • There are numerous books and articles which address this subject.
  • Some of the matter found here that is pertaining to Chronic Sinusitis seems to be quite obvious.
  • You may be surprised how come you never knew about it before!



Asked Carlton in a Follow-Up Email If He Had Tested Positive for Fungi in Previous

Allergy tests, and here is his response: 'Hello Walt: Self-praise is no praise. So we don't want to praise ourselves on the effort put in writing on Sinusitis Treatment. instead, we would like to hear your praise after reading it!

You're Coughing and Sneezing and Tired and Achy

You think that you might be getting a cold. Later, when the medicines you've been taking to relieve the symptoms of the common cold are not working and you've now got a terrible headache, you finally drag yourself to the doctor. After listening to your history of symptoms, examining your face and forehead, and perhaps doing a sinus X-ray, the doctor says you have sinusitis. Rolling Eyes

Sinus Infection Symptoms are Caused by Inflammation and Blockage of the Sinus Cavities

Sinuses are hollow pockets of air located on either side of the nose, behind and in-between the eyes, and in the forehead. The sinuses produce mucus that cleans and moistens the membranes of the nose and throat. Each sinus has an opening into the nose that allows for free exchange of mucus and air. Sinus infection symptoms result when these openings get plugged. We have included the history of Sinus Inflammation here so that you will learn more about its history. It is only through it's history can you learn more about Sinus Inflammation. Idea

The sinuses are four pairs of hollow spaces in the bones of the face lined with mucous membranes and connected to the nose. The sinuses allow air to flow freely within the spaces in and out of the nose. Small hairs in the sinuses (cilia) regularly help move mucous out through the nose. When the small openings from the nose to the sinus cavities (sinus ostia) are blocked, or when too much mucous is produced, inflammation can occur within sinus cavities and cause acute sinusitis. Don't be surprised if you find anything unusual here about Frontal Sinus. There has been some interesting and unusual things here worth reading. Smile

Some additional signs that the doctor will check for in order to diagnose sinusitis are swollen areas around the eyes, nasal passages that have become reddened, facial areas over the sinuses that are tender to percussion (tapping) and drainage from the nose that is similar to pus. Sometimes additional information is used to diagnose this information, such as patient history, and certain tests such as a CT scan or MRI might also be performed because these tests are far better at revealing the actual infection than an X-Ray. The first impression is the best impression. We have written this article on Sinusitis Swollen in such a way that the first impression you get will definitely make you want to read more about it!

The Main Symptoms of Sinusitis are Pain and Pressure in the Face

The location of pain and tenderness depends on which sinus is inflamed. When pain is over the cheek and upper teeth may be caused by the maxillary sinus' inflammation. Pain in the forehead above the eyebrow may be triggered by inflammation of the frontal sinus. Once pain is behind the eyes, on top of the head, or in both temples may be brought about by sphenoid sinus' inflammation. The inflammation of the ethmoid sinus can be identified by the pain around or behind the eyes. Having a penchant for Sinus Infection Symptoms led us to write all that there has been various causes and possible treatment of sinus infection Symptoms here. Hope you too develop a penchant for Sinus Infection Symptoms! Surprised.



  • Pain or pressure symptoms worse when coughing, straining, or lying on the back and better when the head is upright.
  • Commonly the symptoms of sinus infection are headache, facial tenderness or pain, and fever.
  • However, as few as 25% of patients may have fever associated with acute sinus infection.
  • Other common symptoms include cloudy, discolored nasal drainage, a feeling of nasal stuffiness, a sore throat, and a cough.
  • There has been an uncalculatable amount of information added in this composition on Frontal Sinus.
  • Don't try counting it!

Fatigue-Even When You Should Feel Rested

This is the sneakiest one of all. This is the one that creeps up on you slowly and unnoticed. If you are living with the symptoms on this list you are certainly not reaching your true potential at work, family life or at rest. We would like you to leisurely go through this article on Sinusitis Swollen to get the real impact of the article. Sinusitis Swollen is a topic that has to be read clearly to be understood.

The Technical Name of Sinus Infection is Sinusitis

This infection occurs when the mucous membranes in the nose and the sinuses get disturbed by the cold, pollutants, any type of allergy or exposure to cold or dry air. This makes the movement of the coating of the nose slow down. According to the medical professionals, the best sinus infection cure is the natural cure that a person can easily undergo.



  • Liquid intake also helps you moisturize the mucous membranes, washing mucus in faster manner and speeds up the movement of the cilia.
  • But make sure that you do not take coffee because doctors do not include coffee in the list of hot liquids used as a therapy for this disease.
  • Natural sinus infection cure includes the following things that you need to follow to get rid of this disease.
  • First of all, it is important for the patient of sinus infection to drink a lot of hot liquids.
  • This is one of the best cures for the sinus infection.
  • You can take hot tea that could be green, black decaffeinated or herbal.
  • Besides this, hot chicken soup is also a great option for the sinus infection patients.
  • These drinks make your urine light in color which is a positive symptom for this disease.
  • You may be inquisitive as to where we got the matter for writing this article on Sinus Remedies.
  • Of course through our general knowledge, and the Internet!



Another Natural Sinus Infection Cure is to Take Plenty of Rest

It is important for you to take proper rest. If you are suffering from sinus infection, just try to spend your weekend in your bed instead of roaming in the city. This will not only give rest to your body but also to your mind which is the best you could do to yourself in this disease.

Moreover, Another Natural Sinus Infection Cure is to Apply Warm Compresses to Face

This increases the blood circulation in the sinuses that is responsible to quicken the movement in the cilia of the patient. The process is very simple, all you need is to take a wet towel soaked in warm water and place it over your face. Repeat this exercise at least three times a day for 4-5 minutes.

Any one who has ever suffered from sinusitis will for certain tell you that it is not a nice health condition to encounter. This disease occurs when the body sinuses get inflamed and as a result, the lining that covers the sinuses swell up in the process. This action then blocks air from reaching the sinuses a situation that leads to difficulty in breathing. Headaches then start to frequent the patient accompanied by fever. When all this takes place, the cilia movement in the nostrils slows down and as a consequence, mucus is not washed away from the air pathways thus finding it easy to accumulate there cause a nasal congestion. This further complicates the breathing process and the patient is therefore forced to breathe even harder and by doing this, pain is felt around the areas that accommodate sinuses. As the disease advances, a nasal discharge starts coming out of the nose. This discharge is most of the times thick and yellow or greenish in color. All what these symptoms do to the patient is to make him suffer and be uncomfortable most of the time. Due to this fact, the patient will always seek for sinusitis cure whenever he or she is suffering. Evil or Very Mad

One Sure Sinusitis Cure is Surgery

This cure is most of the time administered to patients who are suffering from sinusitis due to structural abnormalities. The common structural defect that causes sinusitis in children is the presence of adenoids in the respiratory tract. When these adenoids swell big enough, they often block air from reaching the sinuses, and this makes it suitable for bacteria present in the sinus cavities to thrive well since oxygen gas which kills them is not anywhere near. As the bacteria multiply and become many, they attack the sinus cells and inflame them in the process hence causing sinusitis. To stop this from taking place, surgeons often opt to remove the adenoids through surgeries. On the other hand, the most common structural abnormality that causes sinusitis in adults is the presence of polyps (little growths) in their respiratory tracts. These little growths obstruct air passage to the sinuses and just like in the case of adenoids, leads to the occurrence of sinusitis. So whenever these defects are detected by doctors and they are seen to be the root causes of sinusitis, surgery is recommended to cure the disease since it aims at removing them from the respiratory system and hence they can no longer prevent air from reaching the sinuses.

Some home remedies such as passage of sea water through your nostrils may at times also cure sinusitis. Swimming in the ocean so as to let sea water enter into your nostrils or using a dropper to insert water into the same nostrils (should be done by people who have the experience to do so) is one quick way to cure sinusitis. The logic behind it is that, the salt inside the sea water absorbs all the water molecules from the bodies of bacteria since they are unicellular organisms through a process known as osmosis. Once this is done, the bacteria have no otherwise but to die and the infection is therefore cured.

Another Sinusitis Cure is Through Medicines Prescribed to You by Your Doctor

To get cured through this approach, you will be required to visit your doctor for an extensive diagnosis on you. Once the actual cause of your sinusitis is known, he will be able to advise you better on the right kind of medicine you should take. Without doubt, antibiotics including Amoxillin are the main types of medicine commonly used to cure sinusitis. The reason here is that, antibiotics greatly tamper with the formation of the outer cell walls of bacteria and without these cell walls, bacteria can not survive. Without bacteria present in the sinus cavities, the infection has no option but to come to an end. Other types of medicines also used here are the antihistamines. These act by stopping the work of histamine present in the body. When histamine is around the sinuses, it inflames them and makes their linings to swell and bring about the sinusitis condition. So by taking antihistamines, you stop the histamine from inflaming the sinuses hence curing the health condition. Nasal sprays like Afrin and Neosynephrine are also proving to be effective cure for this disease. These sprays work by shrinking the swollen tissues hence providing a clear passage for air to pass to the sinuses.
