Chronic Sinusitis - Sinusitis Treatment - Do Antibiotics Really Cure Sinus Infection?

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. When the sinuses become blocked and filled with fluid, bacteria can grow there and cause infection (sinusitis). Sinusitis is another name for a sinus infection, a common disorder. Sinusitis treatment should be required when the symptoms become chronic.

Suitable antibiotics include amoxicillin, sulfa drugs and a variety of cephalosporins are the most common used medication in sinusitis treatment. Antibiotics are prescribed to help control the bacterial infection. This is necessary in order to eliminate the bacteria that were causing the problem. Antibiotics may help destroy your sinus infection symptoms, however, they may also help destroy your immune system leaving you wide open to further infection. We have included some fresh and interesting information on Sinusitis Treatments. In this way, you are updated on the developments of Sinusitis treatments.

There are number of sinusitis treatments that you can take when you get sinus infection. Regular cleansing of the sinuses via nasal irrigation method can help those who have contracted sinus infection recover quickly. To prevent recurrent sinus infection, nasal irrigation must be done on a regular basis. Nasal irrigation with saline solution is one method of controlling sinus symptoms-and possibly curing mild infections that you can easily do at home. Nasal irrigation is not a new discovery, yet more and more ENTs worldwide are recommending it for patients with chronic sinus or other respiratory diseases We cannot be blamed if you find any other article resembling the matter we have written here about Sinus. What we have done here is our copyright material!

  • Sinusitis is an infection of the air passages (sinuses) inside the skull bones next to the nose.
  • Any blockage of the normal ostium leads to disturbed mucociliary transport and subsequently infection of the sinus.
  • The frontal and the maxillary sinuses open into the middle meatus.
  • The sinusitis treatment should deal simultaneously with the infected area.
  • It was our decision to write so much on Sinus Symptoms after finding out that there is still so much to learn on Sinus Symptoms.


Anyone can get a sinus infection but those who are born with a deviated septum or an especially narrow sinus opening or those who have suffered an injury to their nose are most susceptible. Either condition makes it harder for mucus to drain, which makes it easier for bacteria to get trapped and grow. It is possible with chronic sinusitis that the situation may arise that the infection may extend into the brain and cause an infection there and eventually cause death. However, as was stated earlier, this is a rare occurrence and does not happen frequently. :idea:


Did you know Acute sinusitis can last 2-8 weeks, Sub-acute-lasting from 1-3 months long and Chronic - which are those infections that have lasted longer than 3 months. Can your body system afford to survive that long? Discover how you, friends and family members can stay healthy and free from sinus problems, sinus infections and constantly running noses or stuffed noses, no longer suffer today. Find out this natural treatment and get rid of your sinus problems forever. Please visit the link below. We are proud to say we have dominance in the say of Sinusitis Treatment. This is because we have read vastly and extensively on Sinusitis Treatment.

To Treat Sinus Infection, Some Home Remedies can Also Prove Beneficial

These home remedies range from inhaling steam from a vaporizer to keeping the body hydrated by drinking hot tea and other hot liquids. However, coffee is not that effective in reducing pain, though it is warm, as it contains caffeine.

Other remedies include eating jalape'o peppers, intake of ripe grapes' juice, application of a paste of cinnamon with water or dry ginger with water etc. But, while on one hand, these home remedies can help in reducing the pain and discomfort, on the other, these can not cure the infection.

Treatment of Sinus Infections Differ According to the Type of Infection

Sinus infections can be classified into three categories, depending on the duration of occurrence, namely - acute infection (lasting up to three weeks); chronic infection (lasting 3-8 weeks, or even more); and recurring infection which refers to the frequent sinus attacks in the duration of one year. Patience was exercised in this article on Inflammation Sinuses. Without patience, it would not have been possible to write extensively on Inflammation Sinuses.

Daily intake of vitamin C acts as a preventive measure against the pain caused by sinus. Staying away from pollutants that can cause sinus allergy also acts as a deterrent. In the same light, protecting oneself against cold is also a measure to treat sinus infection as cold can aggravate the sinusitis. We have actually followed a certain pattern while writing on Chronic Sinus Infections. We have used simple words and sentences to facilitate easy understanding for the reader. :o.

There are Numerous Options Available for Treating Sinus Infections

Decongestants and sprays available in the market can provide relief from the pain. But they come with a glitch - they can not be used for chronic sinus infections. They are effective only if used for a few days. Nasal rinses with salt-water solution, mucolytic agents, steroids are some of the other possible treatments. Penetration into the world of Sinuses Cavities proved to be our idea in this article. Read the article and see if we have succeeded in this or not! :)

Sinus infection, or sinusitis, is an inflammation of the sinuses and nasal passages. The sinus cavities which are behind the eyes, forehead, nose and cheekbones get inflamed due to cold or some allergic reaction. People prefer to use home remedies for sinus problems as they are outgrown the allopathic medication which gives not much relief. :roll:

Equivalent amount of powdered clove, ginger, and cayenne pepper ginger mixed with warm water and used to rinse your throat help clear a sore throat and clean the mucus in the sinuses.

Like Wise Steam Inhalation Also Helps in Decongestion

Add two drops of euclyputus oil in the steamed water and it helps to a great extent and could be the best home remedy for sinus problems. Many of the products to cure sinus is readily available in our homes. Honey is a healthy substance. Honey and vinegar in a glass of water acts a good curative drink. Many people find Ginseng powder to very useful in sinus. We have not included any imaginary or false information on Sinus Problems here. Everything here is true and up to the mark! :roll:

Home remedies for sinus problems are best used at the onset of the infection. It can give a long cure to the infection and in many times even kill the bacteria. One very good remedy is the nasal wash. A nose washing tool known as the Neti- Pot is used to pour warm salt water from one nostril to another. In the process it washes out dried mucous and kill bacteria from the nose and open blocked nasal passage. :shock:


Hot compression with a hot water bag or dry fermentation over the sinus area gives good relief from headaches due to sinus and opens up blocked cavities which are filled with thickened mucous. Fresh pineapple juice is very good as it contains the enzyme bromelain. Many suggest that Peppermint or elderberry flower tea helps kill the infection. It is also believed that a paste of dried ginger powder and preed lotus root applied on the sinus area can give instant relief.

Over-the-Counter Nasal Sprays

These products, including Afrin and Dristan, are decongestants in a spray form. They are effective when used for a few days, but can be addicting when used for longer periods of time. After using decongestant sprays for three days, people usually experience a rebound effect - when they stop using the spray, they become even more congested and need more spray for relief. People with chronic allergies or sinus problems should limit the use of decongestant sprays to five treatments a week. :oops:

Prescription Inhalers

Several types of prescription nasal inhalers can help reduce sinus inflammation (these are not decongestants and are not habit-forming). Prescription inhalers help heal sinus membranes after the bacteria have been eliminated. These drugs include Beconase, Nasalide and Vancenase (all cortisone derivatives) and Nasalcrom (a non-cortisone drug). When used as directed by a doctor, prescription inhalers can be taken safely for months.

Other symptoms of sinusitis can include fever, weakness, tiredness, a cough that may be more severe at night, and runny nose or nasal congestion. In addition, drainage of mucus from the sphenoids (or other sinuses) down the back of the throat (postnasal drip) can cause a sore throat and can irritate the membranes lining the larynx (upper windpipe). On rare occasions, acute sinusitis can result in brain infection and serious complications. If a bacterial infection is present, antibiotics, such as amoxicillin, erythromycin or sulfa drugs, are usually prescribed for about 10 days. Your doctor also may prescribe one or more of the following remedies (which can be useful in reducing inflammation in the sinuses and nose and speeding recovery): Patience was exercised in this article on Acute Sinusitis. Without patience, it would not have been possible to write extensively on Acute Sinusitis.


Symptoms may last for 3 months or more and include Chronic fatigue, Cough, Facial pain around the eyes or in the forehead or cheeks, Headache (in the front of the head or around the eyes), Nasal congestion, Nasal drainage (yellow, yellow-green, thick), Pain in the roof of the mouth or teeth etc. However, most patients with sinusitis have pain or tenderness in several locations, and symptoms usually do not clearly define which sinuses are inflamed. Penetration into the world of Sinusitis Doctor proved to be our idea in this article. Read the article and see if we have succeeded in this or not! :D.

Humidifiers and Salt-Water Sprays

Dry-air heating systems and air-conditioning can cause sinus membranes to dry out, crack and become vulnerable to irritants, inflammation and infection. Keeping a humidifier running in your home and office or using an over-the-counter salt-water spray (inhaled through the nose) five or six times a day can provide dramatic relief. We consider that we have only touched the perimeter of information available on Nasal Congestion. There is still a lot more to be learnt!

Recurring sinusitis accompanied by a bacterial infection usually requires one of the new, stronger antibiotics, such as Augmentin, Ceclor or Ceftin. These drugs may be given in larger doses for a longer period of time (up to four weeks) than required for a brief bout of sinusitis. The doctor may also recommend continued use of a prescription nasal inhaler for several months to keep the inflammation down and prevent a recurrence. Perhaps you may not have been interested in this passage on Sinusitis. In that case, please don't spread this feedback around!

Decongestants. These temporarily relieve symptoms and also help the healing process by draining the nose and sinuses.Decongestants like pseudoephedrine, phenylpherine and phenylpropanolamine constrict the blood vessels and shrink the sinus and nasal membranes, thus, reducing stuffiness in the sinuses and nasal passageways.

Sinus Pressure is the Feeling of Tightness in the Face and Behind the Eyes

Sinus pressure also refers to the endless pounding of the head. It is caused by the inflammation of the membrane lining the sinus cavity. The inflamed lining does not allow the free exchange of air and mucous between the sinus cavity and the nasal passage causing pressure. This is one of the several symptoms of sinusitis. Sinus pressure is accompanied by slow fever, nasal discharge, jaw pain etc. there are several answers to the question "how to cure sinus pressure" ;)

You do have sinusitis symptoms, you should go to the doctor as early as possible. Antibiotics may or may not help you because antibiotics work only if sinusitis is caused by bacteria. Decongestants and anti-inflammatory drugs are a good way of curing sinusitis. You actually learn more about Sinus Treatment only with more reading on matters pertaining to it. So the more articles you read like this, the more you learn about Sinus Treatment.


Other ways of answering the question "how to cure sinus pressure" could be taking a hot compress on the parts of the face where you feel the pressure. Inhaling steam can also give instantaneous relief. :evil:


Nasal irrigation is a good answer to the problem of how to cure sinus pressure. It clears the nasal passage of the infected mucous. Once the mucous is removed, the pressure automatically clears up. It is not always that we just turn on the computer, and there is a page about Sinus Cavity. We have written this article to let others know more about Sinus Cavity through our resources.

During my years of research for Earache prevention, I found that repeated allergies, sinus, and ear infections are the result of a "weakened immune system" mainly due to "antibiotic overuse." Antibiotics kill good and bad bacteria in the colon resulting in poor digestion and impaired absorption of nutrients. So even when I gave my son a healthy diet and vitamin supplements, he was still having chronic earaches and sinusitis, because he was not absorbing needed nutrients to keep his immune system healthy and strong.

There are thousands of man-made chemicals today that did not exist a hundred years ago. Today our children's immune systems are overloaded with toxins and have to work harder to remove them. Working overtime causes the immune system to run out of essential elements (necessary oils and enzymes), which are the fuel it needs to carry on. When your tank is out of gas you fill it up, right? And likewise, our immune system is no different. To fuel up we need "basic building blocks" called "amino acids" (protein) and "essential oils" (omega in order to strengthen the immune system heal chronic diseases. Toxic overload without regular refueling will cause the immune system and the liver to burnout out. The end result is low "immune system function."

Short-Term Healing can be Achieved by:

Adding all-natural antibiotics in addition to your doctor's care. Natural antibiotics (colloidal silver) can be administered both topically (ear drops & sinus sprays) and orally. My experience when using natural antibiotic eardrops is that ear pain is gone usually within an hour. Making a fresh juice cocktail of carrots, apples, beets, and spinach gives 'superior nutrition' and tons of antioxidants very quickly. Giving lactobacillus acidophilus to restore floral balance in the colon. The sources used for the information for this article on Sinus Ear are all dependable ones. This is so that there be no confusion in the authenticity of the article.

The Goal to Long-Term Healing is to Get the Immune System Strong Again

First, by improving digestion using natural digestive enzymes thus improving absorption of nutrients. Second, is to identify and remove allergens. Research shows that the vast majority of kids with chronic earaches & sinus infections are allergic to wheat, diary, and beef. So eliminating or reducing these foods will bring help bring healing. Alternative food choices are yogurt, soymilk, lactaid milk, rice, oats, and etc. Third, limiting or eliminating proteins from cow products and replacing them with easily digestible proteins such as yogurt, beans, and whey protein powder drinks. Protein powder drinks are chock full of essential and nonessential amino acids that do not need to be digested only absorbed, are very helpful because protein drink mixes are quick and easy to fix. Why should you eliminate cow proteins? Using great confidence in ourselves, we endeavored to write such a long article on Sinusitis. Such is the amount of matter found on Sinusitis. :roll:

Other Factors that Wear Down the Immune System are:

Stress Poor diet Lack of sleep Food allergies Food additives Food preservatives Environmental toxins Toxins from protein digestion We have also translated parts of this composition into French and Spanish to facilitate easier understanding of Sinus Ear. In this way, more people will get to understand the composition. :idea:

Addition to impaired absorption, antibiotics damage the mucosa (the inner lining of the small intestines) so toxins that should normally exit the body, get absorbed into the blood stream instead. Toxins in the blood stream can cause various allergic reactions such as hives, body aches, sneezing, itching, and a runny nose. Runny noses and fluid buildup provide the breeding ground for bacterial ear infections. Dwelving into the interiors of Sinuses has led us to all this information here on Sinuses. Sinuses do indeed have a lot to tell!Dwelving into the interiors of Sinuses has led us to all this information here on Sinuses. Sinuses do indeed have a lot to tell! :idea:

One of the Most Common Processed Foods to Eliminate is White Sugar

Excess dietary sugar is toxic to the body and promotes fungal infections in the gut, ear, nose and throat. Many chronic earaches and sinus problems are actually fungal infections. Instead use an All-Natural Sugar substitute that is safe for kids called Xylitol. In fact, Xylitol actually prevents infections. Aiming high is our motto when writing about any topic. In this way, we tend to add whatever matter there is about Sinuses, rather than drop any topic.

IMPROVED DIGESTION AND ABSORPTION = BETTER NUTRITION = HEALTHY IMMUNE SYSTEM More information is available here: ***** I will also send you a free e-book about natural cures upon your request. Send request to: scott@natural-cures-ear-sinus-infections.com We are satisfied with this end product on Sinus Ear. It was really worth the hard work and effort in writing so much on Sinus Ear.


Simple remedy is to supplement with Lactobacillus Acidophilus (friendly flora), which is a good bacteria that will repair the mucosa by replenishing the natural balance of friendly flora in the colon that the antibiotics has destroyed. For supplement info see link below. Enhancing your vocabulary is our intention with the writing of this article on Sinus Infection. We have used new and interesting words to achieve this.
