a. Overview

Sinusitis is inflammation of the sinuses, an ailment most commonly caused by sinus infections and allergies. Paranasal inflammation can cause a buildup of mucus that makes breathing through the nose difficult. Depending on which sinuses are affected, pain and pressure can be felt in different areas of the face, including behind the eyes, on the top of the head, above the eyes, and in the cheek area. In addition, the area around the eyes and face can become swollen.

Other conditions such as common colds, allergies, bronchitis or other upper respiratory infections have similar symptoms to sinusitis. In cases of sinus infections, these symptoms may persist longer, lasting several weeks or months if untreated. As many as 31 million individuals in the United States are affected by sinusitis each year.

b. Types and Symptoms

Depending on the severity and frequency of onset of symptoms, sinusitis can be classified into two categories: acute and chronic. Acute sinusitis typically develops rapidly, with symptoms lasting one to four weeks, while chronic sinusitis persists longer than twelve weeks and may reoccur when triggered by colds or allergies. Acute sinusitis caused by viral or bacterial infection may lead to chronic sinusitis or other further complications, including spreading of the infection beyond the sinuses.

In both acute and chronic cases of sinusitis the symptoms may include:

  • Headache
  • Facial pain
  • Yellow discharge from the nose or down the back of the throat
  • Difficulty breathing through the nose, especially when lying down
  • Cough that produces mucous
  • Fever
  • Reduced sense of taste or smell

c. Causes of Sinusitis

Causes of sinusitis include viral infection, bacterial infection, fungal infection, allergies and the common cold. Many cases of acute sinusitis start as bacterial or viral infections in the upper respiratory tract. Acute sinusitis can also be caused by chemical irritation from cigarette smoke or chemical fumes. Some physical conditions, such as nasal polyps or narrow sinus cavities, can block drainage and cause chronic sinusitis. Chronic sinusitis can also cause permanent changes in the mucous membranes, making the infected person more prone to future sinus infections.

d. Diagnosis and Treatment

Since the symptoms of sinusitis are similar to those caused by other common conditions, the first step to treatment is to make an accurate diagnosis. A doctor might start with a physical examination, feeling sinuses for tenderness and tapping teeth for inflammation. Other diagnostic tools include, blood tests, allergy tests, nasal endoscopies, and imaging tests such as X-rays and CT scans.

The treatment of acute sinusitis depends on its cause and severity. Because most acute sinus infections are caused by the same viruses that cause the common cold, treatment is not always needed unless the infection spreads. Antibiotic or antifungal medications may be taken for acute sinusitis caused by bacterial or fungal infections, but these medications are probably only needed in severe or persistent cases. However, if the infection lasts longer than twelve weeks or the infection spreads beyond the sinus, the condition may be re-diagnosed as chronic sinusitis.

When treating chronic sinusitis, the goal is to eliminate the underlying cause of the outbreaks. Even if continuing cases cannot be prevented, treatment can lessen the frequency and severity of future recurrences. Surgery may be needed in cases where there are physical obstructions of the nasal cavity such as nasal polyps or narrow sinus passages. Removing nasal polyps or widening nasal passages may be the only way to get the sinus passages to drain thoroughly.

Common treatments to relieve symptoms of chronic or acute sinusitis include self-care, over-the-counter nasal decongestants and pain relievers, nasal corticosteroids, and herbal supplements such as echinacea, eucalyptus oil, ginger, and licorice.

Self-Care:

Self-care can help lessen the symptoms of sinusitis. There are several things you can do to help drain your sinuses including setting up a dehumidifier, inhaling steam 2-4 times a day, and applying a warm, wet washcloth to your face several times a day. It is important to drink lots of fluids in order to cause the mucus to thin.

Nasal irrigation with neti pots or saline nasal sprays can also help clean out sinuses. Neti pots are small pots, similar to teapots or watering cans in appearance, which can be used to pour a saline solution through the sinuses going in one nostril and out the other. Alternatively, you can use a spray bottle to spray a saline solution into your nostrils.

Over-the-Counter Treatments:

Over-the-counter nasal decongestants can be used to reduce congestion, but should not be taken for long periods of time. Overuse of decongestants can cause the onset of severe rebound congestion. Taking over the counter pain relievers such as aspirin, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen can help relieve sinus pain or pressure due to swelling.

Nasal corticosteroids:

Nasal corticosteroids such as fluticasone (Flonase) and mometasone (Nasonex) can be used to decrease swelling and reduce inflammation. While they can be used on an as-needed basis, corticosteroids tend to produce better results when used daily, and it may take up to two weeks of use for symptoms to clear up completely. Common side effects of nasal corticosteroids include headaches, nausea, and nosebleeds. More serious side effects occur rarely with longer periods of use including cracks in the nasal passageways and an increased chance of nasal infections.
