Let us first learn—What Sinusitis is—
SINUSITIS TREATMENT: Sinusitis– is a condition in which the cavities around the nasal passages become inflamed. Nasal congestion is usually owing to swollen nasal membranes from inflammation of the blood vessels.
Acute Sinusitis could be triggered by a cold or an allergy and may resolve on its own whereas–Chronic Sinusitis lasts up to eight weeks and may be caused by an infection or growth.
Symptoms include–headache, nasal congestion and runny nose.
Acute Sinusitis usually does not need any treatment beyond symptomatic relief with pain medication, nasal decongestants and nasal saline rinses. Chronic Sinusitis will require treatment.
Conditions that can cause Sinusitis-
- Allergic rhinitis, which is an oedema of the nasal mucosa
- Small growth in the nasal mucosa
- A deviated septum
- Swelling in the nose as in a common cold
Infection of the subacute sinus lasts typically 6 to 12 weeks. Symptoms of chronic inflammation persist for about 12 weeks, and recurrent Sinusitis occurs several times a year.

Because of the rising pollution, the inner layer of the nose gets inflamed. To balance this, our body produces more nasal secretions & sneezes to pull out this dust and dirt. If these secretions are not allowed to discharge (with the help of anti-allergic medicines or inhalers), they can sit in the sinuses and irritate. This leads to severe headaches.
