What are the main symptoms of sinusitis?
Sinusitis is an inflammatory process that occurs on the mucous membrane in the maxillary sinuses. In parallel, dangerous bacteria and viruses can develop, as well as fungal diseases and allergic reactions, so the symptoms of sinusitis are diverse.
Causes of sinusitis
This disease occurs in violation of the free flow of mucus from one or both of the sinuses. An inflammatory process develops in the accumulating mucus, which also makes it difficult for the body to fight the infection. The risk of the inflammatory process is much higher in case of obstruction of the outflow of mucus. This can take place with certain anatomical features in the structure of the nose - for example, deformation of the nasal septum, as well as with concomitant diseases, smoking, and enthusiasm for scuba diving.
Types of disease
According to the course of the inflammatory process, sinusitis is divided into acute and chronic. The first is the result of complications after acute rhinitis in patients who have had flu, measles, scarlet fever and other infectious diseases, as well as inflammation of the teeth.Any hypothermia can exacerbate the situation. The causes of chronic sinusitis are in the protracted acute form of the disease or in the fact that the patient has not recovered it.
Symptoms of sinusitis
Its main symptom is a runny nose for a long time, which is not possible to cope with conventional medicines. There may also be marked swelling of the eyelids in the morning and conjunctivitis. In general, the symptoms of sinusitis are quite numerous and do not always indicate an inflammatory process in the maxillary sinus. They depend on the stage and form of the disease. Most often there may be a feeling of pressure and tension in the sinuses, headache and toothache, discharge, which make it difficult to breathe.
Diagnosis of sinusitis
Only an experienced ENT doctor can inspect and diagnose the symptoms of sinusitis by examining and taking a smear for subsequent analysis to find the causative agent of infection. On the basis of the obtained results, the doctor prescribes individual treatment, aimed at eliminating minor diseases arising on the background of sinusitis.
Treatment of sinusitis
For the treatment of sinusitis, vacuum catheterization with the help of a YAMIK catheter is most often used. This therapy allows not only to overcome the symptoms of the disease, but also to get rid of any form of sinusitis. Creating a controlled pressure in the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses, this device allows you to cope with the exudative forms of both acute and chronic sinusitis, in addition to polyposis types. This procedure is completely painless and easily tolerated.
What else to treat?
In addition to complex therapy, the doctor may also prescribe modern medicines. Dioxidine for antritis can also be recommended. Treatment of this disease is carried out on an outpatient basis, and additional procedures can be prescribed if necessary. Over the course of ten years of use of the YAMIK-catheter, this device has demonstrated high performance even in severe forms of the disease.
