Sinus Infection Symptoms - Sinus Infection Symptoms - How can I Tell If I Have a Sinus Infection? - Nurse's Guide

Thousands of people suffer from acute or chronic sinus infection symptoms every day and don't know they can do something to relieve their symptoms naturally. The old sinus infection treatment approach of antibiotics is seldom used anymore and likely shouldn't be. :idea:


Another symptom of sinusitis is pain or pressure around the eyes or forehead. If you bend over it will hurt or throb. A sure sign of a sinus infection will be a yellowish nasal discharge. It can also be greenish but if it's yellow you can pretty well bet that it's a sinus infection. This mucous will drain down your throat and irritate it and you may not be aware of it. It can cause an uncomfortable feeling in your stomach. Patience was exercised in this article on Sinusitis. Without patience, it would not have been possible to write extensively on Sinusitis.

One of the first signs or symptoms of a sinus infection is an irritated throat. You may think you're getting a sore throat. There is one easy way to tell if it's a sinus infection, sinusitis or some other sinus problem. We have actually followed a certain pattern while writing on Sinus. We have used simple words and sentences to facilitate easy understanding for the reader.

Lot of Fluid Moves Through the Sinus Cavities Every Day

When sinus blockage happens, the natural mucous hardens and fluid will drain down into the throat. Antihistamines will dry out and harden the mucous so they're generally not a good idea, but check with your doctor if you take them for another reason.

Warm Up a Cup of Water and Add Half of a Measuring Teaspoon of Salt

Gargle gently a few times, then over the next hour or two see if your throat feels any better. It's surprising how simple this is and yet it works most of the time for throats irritated by sinus drainage.

This is Kind of a Backward Approach

Treating the symptoms first to see if it's a sinus infection. Another symptom you may have is a sinus headache. Often people will get a sinus headache before they realize they have a sinus infection. The headache can often be confused with a migraine. One should attempt to stop this headache as soon as possible to avoid it getting a grip on you. Penetration into the world of Chronic Sinus Infections proved to be our idea in this article. Read the article and see if we have succeeded in this or not!

Large Amount of the Population Suffer from Sinusitis Every Year

A sinus is a cavity in the skull which is used to make the skull lighter, give room for the skull to grow, and to cool down the inhaled air. There are four types of sinuses in humans which include the maxillary, ethmoid, sphenoid, and frontal sinuses. The maxillary sinus cavity is located below the eye and to the side of the nose below the cheeks. The ethmoid sinus and the sphenoid sinus are some of the most functional sinuses and are located between the eyes and under the nose. The frontal sinus cavity is located in the middle of the forehead.

There are Many Forms of Treatment for a Sinusitis Infection

Nasal sprays are one common treatment. Nasal sprays work by distributing saline solution up into the sinus cavities. Nasal sprays are meant to moisten the cilia so that the trapped bacteria and mucus can be washed out. The problem with nasal sprays however is that they have large particle sizes that cannot make it past the inflammation at the opening of the sinus cavities and up to the sinusitis infection. Oral antibiotics and other oral medications are also frequently used treatments. Oral antibiotics work on infections by flowing through the blood stream to the infected area. Oral antibiotics are usually ineffective when it comes to sinusitis infections due to the fact that there are only a small amount of blood vessels in the sinus cavities which makes it difficult for an efficient amount of antibiotic, along with anti-fungals and anti-inflammatories, to make it to the sinus infection. Another treatment that may be used is irrigation. Irrigation, like nasal sprays, is meant to moisten the cilia so that it can function properly. Also like nasal sprays, it is difficult for it to make it through the inflammation and to the sinuses. Irrigation is also usually a very messy treatment.

There are Many Symptoms Which can Occur With Sinusitis

Frequently, a person may experience cough, nasal congestion, facial pain and pressure, green nasal discharge, and postnasal drip. When the sinusitis infection lasts for twelve or more weeks it is considered chronic and can have additional symptoms such as loss of sense of taste and smell and the person may also become fatigued. We have written a humorous anecdote on Sinusitis Infections to make it's reading more enjoyable and interesting to you. This way you learn there is a funny side to Sinusitis Infections too! :shock:

The Sinuses can Cause Many Problems

The most common problem is a sinusitis infection. A sinusitis infection is caused by a blockage of bacteria and mucus in the sinus cavities. The blockage begins usually with a cold or allergy. The sinus cavity lining becomes swollen when a cold or allergy exists. When bacteria get into the sinus cavities, they attack the swollen lining which then causes greater inflammation. The cilia are tiny hairs in the sinuses which are used to flush out bacteria and mucus. When the inflammation from the bacteria occurs, the cilia can no longer flush it out therefore the bacteria and mucus become trapped and the sinusitis infection begins. It was at the spur of the moment that we ventured to write something about Sinus Sphenoid Sinus. Such is the amount of matter that is available on Sinus Sphenoid Sinus.

Our sinuses have important functions and it is important to keep them clear from infection. A sinusitis infection can become an inconvenience in many ways and also may cause future problems for the sinus cavities. It is best to take care of a sinusitis infection at the beginning and to prevent it from becoming chronic and from leading to surgery. We were furnished with so many points to include while writing about Sinusitis Infection that we were actually lost as to which to use and which to discard!
