What is Sinusitis?
Sinusitis is a condition that describes swelling of the mucous membranes of the sinuses. This may lead to chronic infections and other issues that require ENT treatment. Over time, fluid is trapped inside the sinuses, creating a perfect environment for bacteria. Some of the reasons that you may develop sinusitis are:
- Nasal polyps
- Having a cold
- Deviated septum
- Inflammation caused by allergies
What Are the Benefits of Sinusitis Treatment?
Having an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment for sinusitis alleviates symptoms such as:
- Trouble breathing through the nose
Who is a Good Candidate for Sinusitis Treatment?
Sinusitis is common, but some people are more prone to the condition, such as those with:
- Blockages in the ducts that drain the sinuses
- Poor immune systems
- Anatomical abnormalities inside the nose
What Should I Expect from Sinusitis Treatment?
Dr. Ayala performs a comprehensive examination of your nose and sinuses that includes a review of your symptoms. You should prepare for the appointment by listing your symptoms, including their frequency and severity. You may be diagnosed with a specific type of sinusitis.
- Acute sinusitis
- Subacute inflammation of the sinuses
- Chronic sinusitis
- Recurring sinusitis
Treatment typically begins with medications to open the sinuses and clear any infection. You may need to make some lifestyle changes, such as to stop smoking, reduce your alcohol consumption, and use humidifiers at home.
