<p>SINUSITIS HOMEOPATHY TREATMENT
Sinusitis, also known as a sinus infection or rhinosinusitis, is inflammation
of the sinuses resulting in symptoms. Common signs and symptoms include
thick nasal mucus, a plugged nose, and pain in the face. Other signs and
symptoms may include fever, headaches, poor sense of smell, sore throat,
and cough. The cough is often worse at night.
Serious complications are rare. It is defined as acute rhinosinusitis (ARS) if
it lasts less than 4 weeks, and as chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) if it lasts for
more than 12 weeks
Sinusitis can be caused by infection, allergies, air pollution, or structural
problems in the nose. Most cases are caused by a viral infection. A bacterial
infection may be present if symptoms last more than ten days or if a person
worsens after starting to improve. Recurrent episodes are more likely in
people with asthma, cystic fibrosis
Sinusitis (or rhinosinusitis) is defined as an inflammation of the mucous membrane that lines
the paranasal sinuses and is classified chronologically into several categories:
Acute rhinosinusitis – A new infection that may last up to four weeks and can be subdivided
symptomatically into severe and non-severe. Some use definitions up to 12 weeks.
Recurrent acute rhinosinusitis – Four or more full episodes of acute sinusitis that occur
within one year
Subacute rhinosinusitis – An infection that lasts between four and 12 weeks, and represents a
transition between acute and chronic infection
Chronic rhinosinusitis – When the signs and symptoms last for more than 12 weeks.
Acute exacerbation of chronic rhinosinusitis – When the signs and symptoms of chronic
rhinosinusitis exacerbate, but return to baseline after treatment
All these types of sinusitis have similar symptoms, and are thus often difficult to distinguish.
Acute sinusitis is very common. Roughly ninety percent of adults have had sinusitis at some
point in their life.
