Dry Sinus - Asthma and Sinusitis are Painful Illnesses but Treatment is Available that Could End Your Suffering
Asthma and Sinusitis are two uncomfortable, allergic conditions caused by the reaction of the body to substances known as allergens. The good news however, is that in many cases treatment is available that can provide relief.

Is also very difficult indeed to determine which of the wide variety of substances, commonly known to cause adverse physical reactions, is responsible in each individual case. It may be several substances.

An allergen is a substance that causes the body to react in an unusual, uncomfortable and unpleasant manner, for example excessive, sneezing, running noses with severe mucous discharge, watery eyes, prolonged coughing, wheezing, difficulty breathing, intense itching, continual sore throats, severe sinus pain and sinus headaches, vomiting and a variety of other unpleasant conditions.

He has also written a number of books on self-improvement, allergies and psychomatic disorders. We have included some fresh and interesting information on Sinus Headaches. In this way, you are updated on the developments of Sinus Headaches.
  • How can one best deal with allergic reactions?
  • It is obvious very difficult indeed if one is unable to establish which particular allergen is causing the problem.
  • We cannot be blamed if you find any other article resembling the matter we have written here about Sinus Pain.
  • What we have done here is our copyright material!

The case of people unusually sensitive to certain allergens the body reacts to their presence by producing antibodies with the result that there is an immediate allergic reaction that can take different forms. We have avoided adding flimsy points on Sinus Pain, as we find that the addition of such points have no effect on Sinus Pain.
  • There is a very helpful website where you can get excellent advice about the treatment of allergies and sinusitis.
  • Go to ***** to find out more about these methods.

Quote:Doctors routinely perform prick tests to test the reaction to certain substances, or patch tests where various materials are applied to an absorbent pad are placed on the back. There is sometimes a delayed sensitivity reaction than can take from 48 to 72 hours after application. But these tests are often not conclusive. Frequently the reaction to the sample substances is not sufficiently marked to provide conclusive evidence.


Acute Rhinosinusitis (ARS): Clinical Guidelines

  • The reason why some people are more susceptible to allergens than others is difficult to determine.
  • Genetic factors probably play an important role.
  • Whatever the cause, allergies are becoming even more widespread.
  • It is estimated that as much as 20% of the American population suffer from some form of allergic reaction.

The most common substances likely to cause these reactions in people unfortunate enough to suffer from allergic reactions, are substances such as grass pollens, house dust mites, animal hair, mold spores, even certain foods such shellfish, peanuts, eggs, and in the case of infants frequently cow's milk.

Where the Direct Cause of the Problem is Known
For example where there is an immediate reaction to eating shellfish or peanuts - then the obvious treatment is to refrain from eating these foods. But in most instances the answer to the problem of what is causing the allergic reaction is very difficult to determine. It was our decision to write so much on Sinus Pain after finding out that there is still so much to learn on Sinus Pain.
Yoga & natural remedies for Bronchitis, Cough & Cold



  • There are a number of over- the- counter remedies available that can relieve the discomfort of the allergic reaction.
  • Some of these remedies have proved very effective indeed giving relief.
  • Others have proved largely ineffectual.
  • It is advisable therefore, to seek qualified medical advice. Big Grin

One of the most common reactions to allergens is known as "hay fever", a condition in which the mucous membranes react with severe nasal discharge, often accompanied with watery eyes. The term "hay fever" however, is misleading because the condition is not caused by a reaction to hay but to certain plant particles and animal proteins. It may take some time to comprehend the matter on Sinus that we have listed here. However, it is only through it's complete comprehension would you get the right picture of Sinus.

As part of our efforts to chronicle the experiences of sinusitis sufferers, a gentleman named Carlton contributed a 'Sinusitis Treatment Success' story.
  • Another article in the Health Solutions Newsletter of Sept 2005 also referred to the Mayo Clinic/U. of Buffalo study and adds further clarification.
  • Their article was entitled 'Mayo Clinic Announces Startling New Sinus Discovery'

Had 2 Different Allergy Tests, Both Negative
The Mayo/U. of Buffalo research says this is not an allergic reaction like a pollen allergy, so it wouldn't show up in an allergy test. It's an over reaction to fungus by T-cells that damage the sinus lining and gives bacteria a place to grow. Most people have no reaction, but most people with chronic sinusitis do. Apparently there is a test, but ENT's are skeptical. Mine said the fungus idea was false and suggested surgery. If I was cynical, I might think his opinion was because there's no surgical solution. Writing about Sinus Disease is an interesting writing assignment. There is no end to it, as there is so much to write about it!

Anyone who suffers from recurring sinus infection issues and who cannot find adequate relief after treatment by an otolaryngologist or after unsuccessful surgery are urged to do what Carlton has done:

Hopefully the follow-on work of the Mayo Clinic and University of Buffalo will identify antifungal treatments that can finally go after the root cause of recurring sinus infection. Sinus sufferers should be aware of these research efforts and be ready to discuss these findings with their ENT specialists. Maybe serious help is finally on the way. Keep your mind open to anything when reading about Sinus. Opinions may differ, but it is the base of Sinus that is important.
  • If the tests are positive for fungus, try to improve your environment to lower the amount of fungus you are exposed to.
  • There are numerous books and articles which address this subject.
  • Accept the way things are in life.
  • Only then will you be able to accept these points on Sinus.
  • Sinus can be considered to be part and parcel of life.
  • Start using pulsating nasal irrigation to cleanse the nose of crusty old mucus which could be carrying toxins. 2.
  • Test your environment to see if you are exposed to high levels of fungus.
  • Ignorance is bliss they say.
  • However, do you find this practical when you read so much about Sinus Treatment?

Asked Carlton in a follow-up email if he had tested positive for fungi in previous allergy tests, and here is his response: 'Hello Walt:

I'll Let You Know How It Goes, but So Far, I Feel Much Better
Carlton' Huge Implications in the Study Results There are huge implications in this study for those who suffer from recurring sinus infection. This work could lead to treatments that treat the root cause of the problem for the first time. Make the best use of life by learning and reading as much as possible. read about things unknown, and more about things known, like about Sinus.
  • This is leading edge stuff.
  • Mayo received a patent on anti-fungal treatments.
  • I decided to try this approach after everything else failed.
  • I don't want surgery, because I've never heard of one that worked.

'Jens Panikau, sinus researcher at Mayo Clinic, has published a new finding that explains why sinus disease persists despite so many new drugs. Dr Panikau found that the main cause of sinus symptoms was that the eosinophiles ' your special cells that defend your body against infection, - get into the mucus and produce a toxic product called MBP that is made in order to kill bacteria. Unfortunately, among sinus sufferers, there is an excess of this MBP in the mucus that also damages the cells of the nose and impairs its ability to sweep bacteria out of the nose. Dr Panikau shows that it is the MBP that makes the patient sick, with fever, pain, fatigue, and secondary infections.' life is short. Use it to its maximum by utilizing whatever knowledge it offers for knowledge is important for all walks of life. Even the crooks have to be intelligent!
Vitamin a Sinusitis - Treating Sinus Disease
People living in all industrialized countries face the problem of sinus disease. Excessive exposure to smoke, dust and pollutants causes sinusitis. Sinus disease is caused by inflammation of the lining of the sinus cavity. Sinus cavities produce mucous, reduce the weight of the head and resonate the voice. Though, sinusitis is not a major disease, it can cause a great deal of discomfort.
  • Symptoms of sinus disease vary from person to person depending on the sinus cavity affected.
  • Some of the most common symptoms of sinus are headache, facial pain, facial pressure, swelling on the face, pain in the cheeks, jaws and teeth.
  • A greenish yellow nasal discharge is a signature sinus symptom.
  • This discharge may be blood tinged in case of acute sinusitis.
  • Sinus may also cause double or blurred vision.
  • Temporary blindness may also occur in some rare cases.

There are Several Ways of Treating Sinus Disease
Some of the most common methods are usage of anti-inflammatory drugs, antibiotics and anti-allergic medicines. Antibiotics are effective only in cases where sinusitis is caused by bacteria. Anti-inflammatory drugs are used to soothe the inflammation in the lining of the sinus cavity whereas anti allergic medicines are given in cases where the doctor suspects allergens like smoke and dust to be the cause of sinusitis. Wink

Lot of people indulge in self medication and home remedies to cure sinusitis. Inhaling steam is very effective in dislodging infected mucous from the sinus cavities. Taking a hot compress also helps at times. Nasal sprays are also very good for dislodging the mucous from the nasal cavities. They are basically oral decongestants. Another way of curing sinus disease is nasal irrigation. In nasal irrigation, a mixture of saline water is used to clean the nasal passage. It is an instantaneous cure to sinusitis. A surgery may be considered in extreme cases.

Though Sinus Disease can be Cured Every Easily, It is Best If Avoided
People should stay away from smoke and dust. Cleaning the nasal passage every day with a good cleanser is also recommended. Colds should be taken care of as soon as possible. A doctor should be consulted when the first symptoms of sinus are observed.
  • Feeling a bit congested in the nose?
  • Or can't breathe at all?
  • The reason may be an inflammation of or infection in your sinuses, causing a condition called sinusitis.
  • Other symptoms include coughing, sneezing, feelings of tiredness, aches, and constant low fever.

Full-blown sinusitis causes blockage of the nasal passages, obstructing drainage and causing post nasal drips. Because of the blockage, the excess mucus produced is trapped inside the nasal passages where they accumulate and turn foul, leading to bad breath side effect. In addition, the trapped mucus due to sinusitis can become breeding grounds for bacteria that cause bad breath side effect. Our dreams of writing a lengthy article on Sinuses has finally materialized Through this article on Sinuses. however, only if you acknowledge its use, will we feel gratitude for writing it!

Because the signs are so much the same as a cold, people with sinusitis often mistake their condition for colds. But later, when the medicines they've been taking for treating the symptoms of colds don't seem to work, they go to the doctor who then examines them and tells them that they have sinusitis. We found it rather unbelievable to find out that there is so much to learn on Sinusitis! Wonder if you could believe it after going through it!

Drugs Like Flonase are Different, However
Flonase, generic name flonase floticasone, is a steroid based prescription nasal spray that treats sinusitis but does not have a bad breath side effect. Flonase has been used by many patients with sinusitis with good results. Using Flonase on a regular basis produces best results since it may take several weeks for the medication to give maximum effect. Nothing abusive about Sinusitis Causes have been intentionally added here. Whatever it is that we have added, is all informative and productive to you.

How to Treat Sinusitis?
The good news is that bad breath side effect of sinusitis may be treated by simply treating the sinusitis itself. And there are dozens of different over the counter nasal decongestants and antihistamines that will more than do their job of stopping sinusitis. These drugs act by relieving congestion and drying up excess mucus. However, in doing this, some of these drugs may also inadvertently cause bad breath side effect since dryness in the mouth is one of the most frequent causes of bad breath. :o.

These sinuses have a mucus lining that continue on to the nasal passages. The mucus helps keep the air that passes from the nose to the nasal passages clean and clear and dehumidified. When you have a cold, the cause of that is a viral infection in the nasal passages. As a result, more mucus is secreted by the mucus lining as more white blood cells are sent to fight the viruses in the infected area. This leads to swelling of the mucus lining, causing inflammation which then becomes the precursor of sinusitis.

How Does Sinusitis Work?
To answer that question, we must first look into what the sinuses are. They are actually hollow cavities within the skull, surrounding the nose. Each of us has four sinuses: the frontal sinuses over the eyes in the brow area, maxillary sinuses inside each cheekbone, ethmoid sinuses just behind the bridge of the nose and between the eyes, and sphenoid sinuses behind the ethmoids in the upper region of the nose and behind the eyes. We have to be very flexible when talking to children about Sinuses Eyes. They seem to interpret things in a different way from the way we see things!

Mayo Clinic researchers have made great strides in recent years regarding sinusitis treatment and have come up with a new therapy for chronic sufferers called topical antifungal therapy. This particular sinusitis treatment is still new and is not widely practiced. This author, a sinusitis sufferer of long standing with two painful operations under his belt, has been in contact with one of the Mayo Clinic research physicians. I was pointed to several papers and articles describing the research completed thus far, the theory behind the research, and the resulting therapy.

Topical Antifungal Therapy is a New Form of Sinusitis Treatment
It takes time for a new approach to become accepted in the medical community at large. I asked the Mayo research physician if he knew of a colleague in the Denver area, where I reside, who was utilizing this approach. He responded that he didn't know anyone there, but gave me two names of physicians in Texas, which I also asked about. So it is obvious that this approach to sinusitis treatment is not yet mainstream therapy, but it does have momentum. For people who have received sinusitis treatment which has not improved their suffering, more details regarding this and other sinus related subjects can be found at the web site in the resource box for this article.

Simple and general terms, the Mayo Clinic research showed that some people (i.e., chronic sinusitis sufferers), have a harmful immune reaction to fungi that others do not experience. The research demonstrated that fungi are present in the air and show up in the nasal mucus of just about everyone. In the noses of chronic sinus sufferers, it showed that certain types of white blood cells will attack the fungi that are present. In doing so these cells create a compound that damages nasal membranes. Once damaged, bacteria can easily enter and cause pain, inflammation and infection. Conventional sinusitis treatment often includes antibiotics to attack the bacteria. This new sinusitis treatment aims to attack the fungi instead, thus avoiding the nasal membrane damage in the first place. One drawback is that it is not easy to determine if a patient is someone whose white blood cells attack fungi in the nose or not. It is also not known why this white blood cell reaction occurs in some people and not in others. It was with great optimism that we started out on writing this composition on Chronic Sinus. Please don't let us lose this optimism.

Antifungals such as Amphotericin B and Itraconazole are used in this sinusitis treatment regimen. These have already been approved by the FDA for other uses, and they can be mixed by a compounding pharmacy such as Anazao to make the topical solution needed for this new therapy. Amphotericin B, for example, was only available in my local pharmacy as an injection medication. The pharmacist was not aware that it is sometimes reformulated as a topical spray for sinusitis treatment. Patients spray the antifungal into their nostrils daily. About 75% of the chronic sinus sufferers in one of the Mayo Clinic studies saw significant improvement in their conditions following this regimen. Patience was exercised in this article on Spray Sinusitis. Without patience, it would not have been possible to write extensively on Spray Sinusitis.

Quote:Also contacted Accentia, the biopharmaceutical company who has obtained a license from the Mayo Foundation to produce and market medications based on the Mayo Clinic research. They informed me that they plan to market a product based on Amphotericin B, which will have the brand name SinuNase. They will start clinical trials soon, and I submitted my name as a possible participant. Apparently I would be a good candidate since I've had sinus surgeries that didn't cure my problems. We have actually followed a certain pattern while writing hazardous sinus treatments. We have used simple words and sentences to facilitate easy understanding for the reader.

Feeling dizzy is really a problem, vertigo is another symptoms associated with a sinusitis infection. Dizziness is described as the state of physical unsteadiness, lightheadedness which is related to imbalance. Sinus infection and dizziness symptoms can be treated with proper medication, instability sensation has a connection with various complications; they can range from being harmless to near-death conditions. It is really difficult to move around especially when linked to a sinusitis infection; things can become troublesome as they are very difficult to manage.
  • Discomfort is also one of the bad sides of a sinusitis infection, lessening productivity especially when working.
  • Being dizzy, you will never accomplish anything, you just need ample rest.
  • With the proper information about a sinus infection and how they work, you can save a lot of time in treating this condition.
  • Learning their trigger factors can be better than to have them, here are some symptoms of a sinus infection which can lead to dizziness.

Prevention is the Best Treatment
A little effort of prevention is priceless; you can get by without having a sinusitis infection. Bacteria can be the cause of this condition, taking in healthy foods and supplements can strengthen your immune system which can lessen the occurrence of a sinus infection as well as dizziness. Proper medication and equipment can prevent bacterial infections; this can also lessen the severity of the sinus infection. Slang is one thing that has not been included in this composition on Sinus Infection Problems. It is because slang only induces bad English, and loses the value of English.
  • A regular sinus infection can make you feel dizzy, along with other symptoms such as runny nose, pain, fatigue, they are the common symptoms.
  • You can also get headaches after waking up in the morning; medications can help alleviate these symptoms.

With proper air conditioning, this can lessen the occurrence of getting a sinus infection. Investing on a quality air conditioning system can suffice. Air conditioners remove allergens within the air, a dry forced conditioning system can also provide a decent temperature for your liking. The electrostatic filters remove allergens within the air. Also a weak immune system is the most vulnerable targets of a sinus infection, there are various information along the web which you can use to prevent sinus infection, you can always treat symptoms of this type of condition.

Sinusitis Infections can Also Cause Pain in the Forehead
An inflamed maxillary sinus can inflict pain on jaws and teeth. The feeling of dizziness can be due to inflamed tissues around the eyelids, there is also pain which can be felt in this area. With inflamed eyelids, they can also trigger inflammation around the nose. This article serves as a representative for the meaning of Acute Sinusitis in the library of knowledge. Let it represent knowledge well.

The culprit of being dizzy is due to a common cold which is then caused by a virus. They usually don't show any symptoms associated with a sinus infection but they can inflame the sinuses. The correct treatment can relieve dizziness and a sinus infection with treatment can be cured within two weeks. But getting a common cold can lead to acute sinusitis, they can progress quickly but treatments can be available for inflamed sinuses.
