Severe Sinus Infection

Tuesday 27 May 2014 @ 10:12 pm

Sinus infections, in themselves, are painful. You can very well imagine how painful a severe sinus infection can be. Dealing with such discomforting pain for a few days, or at the most a week or so, is still bearable. But those suffering from such sinus infections bear this pain for anywhere between two to three months or even more.

Thus, a severe sinus infection can hamper your routine life due to the symptoms that last for a longer duration. This makes it inevitable to understand and recognize the symptoms of such an infection so as to ensure timely treatment.

A severe sinus infection is much the same as an acute infection, the only difference being the duration. In chronic infection, the symptoms last longer than in an acute infection. Also, there is resistance to treatment as the body takes a longer time to respond to the treatment.

Some of the common symptoms of such sinus infections include pressure near the eyes and nose accompanied with a pain, a thick discharge from the nose, breathing difficulties and a severe headache.

Nasal Irrigation is an excellent way to clean mucus from the nose making sinus infection medication more effective. They also clean allergens, irritants, bacteria and viruses from the nose reducing the frequency of sinus infection. Furthermore, they help decrease swelling in the nose and increase air flow. Sinus RinseTM Nasal Wash is excellent for all ages.

Other than the above mentioned symptoms, you can also suffer from a pain in the teeth, ears and the jaws. The symptoms of a sinus infection are not the same for one and all. They vary from person to person depending on the type of sinus one is suffering from. An important thing to be mentioned here is that it may so happen that not all the symptoms occur at the same time. So even if you experience only a few of the symptoms, do consult a doctor.

Whereas an acute sinus infection, that lasts between a few days to a week or so, can be treated with time-tested home remedies, a severe sinus infection, lasting more than a month and recurring frequently, needs the doctors’ consultation and medication. The treatment may begin with antibiotics, followed by decongestants and nasal sprays. If all these do not prove effective, a surgery can be resorted to.

Though time consuming and painful, what is like a silver lining is the fact that a severe sinus infection can be treated with the plenty of options available!
