Do you have a stuffy nose, swelling around your cheeks, and a high temperature that you can’t get rid of?
Sinusitis (swelling of the sinuses) can affect people of any age. It can be very painful and can make you feel stuffy.
The lining of the sinuses secretes mucus. This mucus is usually excreted through the nose and throat. But if your sinus lining becomes swollen due to an infection or allergy, it can cause a blockage and the mucus cannot drain.
Most people with sinusitis do not need to see a doctor. The condition is usually caused by a viral infection that goes away on its own.
When you have sinusitis, your symptoms usually go away within two to three weeks and you can take care of yourself at home. But if the runny nose does not go away for a long period, you need to seek medical help.
The use of devices of the Lanta series allows you to relieve symptoms after the first session of therapy, and to completely solve the problem, it is enough to undergo a course of therapy for at least 5 days.

What is sinusitis?
There are 4 types of sinusitis: acute, subacute, chronic, and recurrent.
Acute sinusitis describes the sudden onset of cold symptoms that include nasal congestion and facial pain that usually last no longer than a week but can last up to 3 weeks.
Subacute sinusitis defines an infection that lasts more than 1 month but less than 3 months.
Chronic sinusitis, also known as chronic rhinosinusitis, describes a condition in which symptoms last for more than 3 months.
Recurrent sinusitis is when a person experiences several attacks during the year.
Sinusitis symptoms include:
- nasal congestion, inflammation of the mucous membranes
- pain, swelling around the cheeks, eyes, or forehead
- green / yellow nasal discharge
- sinus headache
- runny nose (usually clear or whitish in people with noninfectious sinusitis)
- ear pain or hearing problems
- reduced taste and odor
- bad breath.
Symptoms of facial pain, purulent nasal discharge that last longer than a week and do not respond to over-the-counter medications are most likely a bacterial sinus infection. When sinusitis is acute, the symptoms are usually more severe.
If you continue to develop any of the following symptoms, seek medical attention. They can indicate complications of a sinus infection, which, although rare, can lead to much more serious infections, such as meningitis, orbital cellulitis, or a brain abscess.
Sinusitis and sinusitis can be infectious and non-infectious. Infectious sinusitis can be caused by a viral infection, a bacterial infection (less commonly), or a fungal infection (rare). Non-infectious sinusitis is caused by irritants or allergies. Allergic sinusitis (not to be confused with fungal sinusitis) is caused by an allergic reaction to fungi found in the air.
A sinus infection can be caused by anything that interferes with the flow of air to the sinuses and the flow of mucus from the sinuses. Colds, flu, allergies, and irritants such as cigarette smoke can cause swelling of the mucous membranes and block the openings of the sinuses. Blocked sinuses create an environment for viruses, bacteria, and fungi to grow in the sinus cavity.
Fungal sinusitis is very rare. This infection, also known as zygomycosis or mucormycosis, is caused by the inhalation of fungi from soil or water. Within a few days, fungi can grow and cut off blood supply to tissues, most often the nose and eyes. These infections are very serious and can be fatal and require urgent medical attention.
What are the risk factors?
There are a number of factors that can make you more susceptible to sinusitis:
- allergic rhinitis
- hay fever
- cystic fibrosis
- a weakened immune system, for example. due to HIV treatment or chemotherapy
- facial trauma or surgery
- infected teeth
- inflammatory diseases such as wegener’s granulomatosis and sarcoidosis
Common factors that contribute to the development of sinusitis in children are allergies, kindergarten or school diagnoses, pacifiers, drinking from a bottle while lying down, and cigarette smoke in the environment.
The most common contributors to infection in adults are smoking and viral infections. Other less common factors are bacterial infections, environmental pollution, and allergies. Sometimes an infected tooth can cause sinus inflammation.
When do i need to contact MC Altimed?
Acute bacterial sinusitis in adults is most often manifested by nasal congestion for more than 7 days, purulent rhinorrhea, postnasal leakage, facial pain and pressure, alone or with concomitant reflected pain in the ears and teeth. A cough may occur, often worse at night. Children with acute sinusitis may not be able to transmit a history of post-nasal drainage or headaches, so coughing and rhinorrhea are the most common symptoms. Other symptoms may include fever, nausea and fatigue, impaired smell and taste, and bad breath.
If you have signs of sinusitis, it is recommended that you immediately contact a specialist for a timely diagnosis and prescription of a course of therapy.
Chronic sinusitis can cause more subtle symptoms that persist for months. Nasal congestion and post-nasal drainage are the most common symptoms of sinusitis. Chronic cough that gets worse at night or when waking in the morning is also a commonly described symptom of chronic sinusitis. Clinical signs may be subtle and less pronounced than in acute sinusitis, unless the patient has an acute exacerbation of sinusitis. In very rare cases, sinus inflammation may occur without a runny nose.
