Sinus Irrigation - Deviated Septum- Think Twice about an Operation
Quote:The first of my two sinus operations was to correct a deviated septum. The operation, or more precisely, the post-operative recovery period, was very painful. I had splints in my nose to help support it since the septum had been rebuilt, and my nose was 'packed'. This means that a large amount of gauze was pressed into the nose to stop bleeding.

Some People are Lucky and Respond Well to Standard Treatments and Medication
Many people, myself included, have tried all the standard treatments, medications and even operations, and still keep coming how to get rid of sinus congestion?. Something else is obviously in the mix. We have actually followed a certain pattern while writing on Sinus Irrigation. We have used simple words and sentences to facilitate easy understanding for the reader.
  • Actually it was only about 5 days, as I begged my doctor to take out the splints and packing because the pain was so bad.
  • One reason for this was that I had developed an infection as a result of the surgery and then had to deal with that as well.
  • As for taking out the packing gauze, my surgeon said 'This will feel like I'm pulling your brains out through your nose'.
  • He was right.

  • Since no air can pass through the nostrils for the week or so that the packing is in place, things like eating became a challenge.
  • You cannot eat and breathe at the same time, so small bites and lots of soups and other liquids are favored.
  • The splints were awful.
  • When I tried to lie down normally in bed, the pressure on either side was very painful, and I couldn't sleep normally.
  • My doctor suggested I get a Lazy Boy chair which reclined somewhat and sleep on that.
  • In fact I did this, but sleep was difficult, and it was a long week.

Therein Lies the Problem
There are many reasons for the onset of sinus infections. There could be allergies, yeast infections causing candida, blockage by polyps, rhinitis or chronic rhinitis, etc. Ongoing research is looking at other causes as well, and new treatments such as antifungal therapy are being developed, along with new medications to implement them.

Sinus Attack - Sinus Infection Treatment
Sinus infection, also known as sinusitis, is an infection that affects the sinuses in the body. Sinuses are the hollow spaces or cavities near the bones in the skull around the nose. Sinusitis is the swelling of these sinuses because of some allergic or immune reaction that causes the sinuses to be blocked. This blockage causes air to be trapped inside the sinuses along with other secretions like pus, putting pressure on the sinus walls. This pressure produces pain and a lot of discomfort, often referred to as a sinus attack. Sinus infection is a very common allergy that affects million of people throughout the world every year. Millions of dollars are spent for sinus medications and sinus research. Sinus infections may occur because of some viral or fungal infections. Smile

Sinus infection treatments can vary vastly depending on the type of infection: acute (up to 3 weeks), chronic (3 to 8 weeks or more) and recurring (frequent attacks within a year). The most common treatment intended for treating sinusitis would comprise of a decongestant to reduce the congestion in the nose, antibiotics for the infection, and pain relievers for any pain. :o.

There are over-the-counter decongestants and sprays available that can provide some relief. However, these should be used only for a few days. It is advisable to consult a specialist if the infection exists for long time. Acute sinusitis can be treated with antibiotics and decongestants, but chronic sinusitis takes longer and is usually difficult to treat because it could be linked to some other infection like asthma. In such cases, doctors may also prescribe steroids to provide relief. Some people may also require surgery. There are also other therapies like saline nasal rinses, topical/oral decongestants, antihistamines, mucolytic agents, and intranasal corticosteroids. There are no boundaries on countries for one to access information about Treating Sinusitis through the Internet. All one has to do is to surf, and then the required matter is availed!

There are Also Easy Home Remedies for Providing Relief from Sinusitis
Inhaling steam, using saline nasal spray, applying gentle heat over the inflamed area, lying down in a darkened room, using a decoction of mustard seeds and water instilled in the nostrils, drinking juice of ripe grapes, eating jalapeno pepper, inhaling peppermint steam, applying a paste of cinnamon and water or dry ginger and water, etc., are some of the most commonly used home remedies for sinus infections. However, these remedies can only lessen the discomfort; they cannot cure the actual diseases that cause sinus infections. You actually learn more about Sinusitis Infection only with more reading on matters pertaining to it. So the more articles you read like this, the more you learn about Sinusitis Infection.

You're wondering whether you have acute or chronic sinusitis I'll focus on what acute sinusitis is caused by in this article. Sinusitis also means a sinus infection. Sinus infections can cause a wide range of sinus symptoms, including coughing, sneezing, sore throat, pressure, sinus headache, even eye pain, tooth pain or jaw pain and other sinus problems.

Used to be Thought that Fungal Infections Did Not Cause Acute Sinusitis
But recent studies have shown that the rate of fungal infections is in the 90% range. Antibiotics will do nothing to help fungal infections. That is the major reason why antibiotics don't work for sinus infections since there goal is to target specific bacteria. :o.

Quote:
  • The inflammation from a cold causes the mucous membranes that line the sinus cavities, to swell.
  • Air and mucous become backed up because the passage is now too narrow for the mucous to pass through.
  • Now that it's trapped, bacteria and fungus can feed on the trapped mucous.

Of course antibiotics can upset the body's balance and cause yeast infections also. So antibiotics are not commonly given as they were in the past. There are other approaches that are better now rather than taking antibiotics even if the problem is caused by bacteria. Writing is something that has to be done when one is in the mood to write. So when we got in the mood to write about Chronic Sinus Infections, nothing could stop us from writing!

People who have chronic nasal problems who find that their sinus membranes swell can get acute sinusitis due to the narrowing of passages and entrance of bacteria or fungi similar to those who get a cold. :o

You have a reduced or suppressed immune system function you may be more likely to get acute sinusitis. This can be from a known auto-immune disease you know you have or from an unknown cause. It is rather inviting to go on writing on Chronic Sinusitis. however as there is a limitation to the number of words to be written, we have confined ourselves to this. However, do enjoy yourself reading it.

But if this inflammation has been caused by an infection by bacteria then this infection is called acute sinusitis, but isn't the only type of infection to cause it. I'll discuss this. :o.

Certain bacteria live in your nose, such as haemophilus inlfuenzae and Streptococcus pneumoniae. This is natural but when you blow your nose or sniffle, the changes in the pressure can cause the bacteria or fungus or whatever particles or organisms are in your nasal passages to go up into the sinus cavities. It's the opposite of what you would think normally - that blowing your nose would help get rid of the problems. Tests have shown that the bacteria, fungus and particles do indeed go up into the sinus cavities. Ignorance is bliss, is it? Isn't it better to learn more than not to know about something like Sinus Cures. So we have produced this article so that you can learn more about it!

For many years doctors thought the infections were caused by bacteria but newer research has shown that the majority of infections are actually fungal infections. There is a common household mold that lingers throughout every household.

First of All Sinusitis is an Inflammation of the Sinus Cavities
There are four sets of sinuses and it can occur in any of them. Acute sinusitis can occur after you have a cold. Colds are caused by viruses. The result is that the sinus cavities become inflamed and you'll have symptoms of sinusitis but they'll get better on their own usually within 10-14 days. Isn't it amazing how much information can be transferred through a single page? So much stands to gain, and to lose about Nasal Irrigation through a single page. :o.
  • The most common fungus is called Aspergillus and you can find it in decaying vegetation, like dead leaves and composting piles.
  • Other causes include allergies such as a pollen allergy which is sometimes called hay fever.

  • A rolling stone gathers no moss.
  • So if I just go on writing, and you don't understand, then it is of no use of me writing about T Sinus!
  • Whatever written should be understandable by the reader.

People Who Have Acute Sinusitis Do Not Seek Out Sinus Surgery
In any case if you're trying to determine if you have acute sinusitis, this may give you some idea as to what is causing it. For me, just being around old dust and the exposure to the particles can cause it if I'm not careful. Perhaps they actually get up into my nasal passages enough to cause swelling. They can be irritating and start a sinus infection if not taken care of right away. I avoid it by relying on my natural sinus cures and treatment for sinus relief and got rid of my sinus problems for good.

  • What seems like common cold the first time its symptoms appear may actually turn out to be a case of sinus attack.
  • Just like when they contract the cold virus, children cough, sneeze or get red noses when sinusitis hits them.
  • What makes sinus attacks different from the common cold is the length of time the affliction wears itself out.
  • It takes victims - young and old - a longer time to recover from sinusitis than from common cold.
  • Doctors who treat children suffering from symptoms of sinusitis normally check, apart from sinuses, the nose, throat, and ears for infection.
  • They tap or press lightly the patient's forehead and cheeks.
  • They prescribe antibiotics for infections caused by bacteria.
  • This medication normally takes effect within days after taking the dosage.
  • But in cases of chronic sinusitis, patients need to take the dosage for a longer period of time to ensure total removal of bacteria.
  • Decongestants or nasal sprays dry up blocked or runny nose.

Anything good can be said about sinusitis, it is this: The infection is not contagious.

We have not actually resorted to roundabout means of getting our message on Sinusitis Infection through to you. All the matter here is genuine and to the point.

The bones in our head and face have blank niches or spaces filled with air, called sinuses. Sinuses can be found at the back of the nasal cavity, on both sides of the nose, inside the forehead, behind both and in between eyes. Sinuses come in pairs; there are normally four pairs in each person. They start showing as early as the first few months of conception; they continue to develop until late adolescent age. It is the normal style of writers to add additional information with the intention of lengthening the length of an article. However, we have provided a short and concise article with only required information on Acute Sinusitis.

Why Our Bodies Need to Develop Sinuses is Not Clear to Many
However, scientific studies suggest that sinuses make us feel less burdened by the weight of our head due to the light air that fills them. Scientists say that if anything solid were to take the place of the air pockets, our heads will become much heavier. Sinuses are also believed to enhance the depth and tone of our voice. For example, our voices often sound differently when we are suffering from common cold or, worse, sinus attack. With people wanting to learn more about Sinuses Nose, it has provided the necessary incentive for us to write this interesting article on Sinuses Nose!
  • Prolonged conditions stretching up to two weeks mean that the cold virus infection has worsened to become a sinus infection.
  • Acute sinusitis describes an infection that drags on for more than two weeks.
  • Beyond this period--stretching beyond three months--the ailment is called chronic sinusitis.
  • Due to their less developed immune systems, children are at greater risk of getting hit by sinus attacks than adults.
  • We were rather indecisive on where to stop in our writings of Acute Sinusitis.
  • We just went on writing and writing to give a long article.

Mucus Membranes Surrounding the Nasal Area and Grow Tiny Hairs or Cilia
These hairs sway, in ways that facilitate mucus flow, in and out of the nose. The cilia are disabled and the back flow of the mucus gets disrupted when a person contracts the cold virus. This explains why persons with cold develop symptoms like runny nose and clogged nasal cavities. The infection causes the swelling of mucus lining within the nasal area. This prevents the tiny passages between the sinuses and nose from working properly, effectively trapping more mucus within the sinuses. The immobile mucus becomes a friendly host for the virus, fungi and bacteria to breed. The value of this composition is achieved if after reading it, your knowledge on Chronic Sinusitis is greatly influenced. This is how we find out that the meaning of Chronic Sinusitis has really entered you!
