Sinus Infection and Sinus Infection Symptoms

Sinus infections are one of the most common infections across the world. Sinus attacks are caused by an infection in the sinuses or cavities that are present in the bones near the nose. When there is any swelling in these sinuses because of some infection, breathing becomes difficult resulting in fever, headaches, and other discomforts. This is known as sinusitis.

Each sinus or cavity in the skull has an opening that allows free exchange of mucus and air. Each sinus is joined to the other by a mucous membrane lining. When there is an infection like hay fever or a disease like asthma, these sinuses and the lining become inflamed, causing air and mucus to be blocked inside or a vacuum to be created. This can cause pressure on the sinus walls, causing severe pain. There are four kinds of sinuses: frontal sinuses, maxillary sinuses, ethmoid sinuses, and sphenoid sinuses. Any part of these four sinuses can be infected, causing pain in that particular area.

There are different kinds of sinus infection symptoms depending upon the sinus that is infected. There can be pain anywhere near these sinuses. With frontal sinuses there can be pain over the eyes in the brow area; with maxillary sinuses, inside each cheekbone; with ethmoid sinuses, just behind the bridge of the nose and between the eyes; and with sphenoid sinuses, behind the ethmoids in the upper region of the nose and behind the eyes. This pain is the most common symptom for sinusitis. Isn't it wonderful that we can now access information about anything, including Chronic Sinusitis form the Internet without the hassle of going through books and magazines for matter! Laughing


Other common symptoms for sinus infections are pain in the head, ear or neck; headaches early in the morning; pain in the upper jaw/ cheeks /teeth; swelling of the eyelids; pain between the eyes; nasal discharge; stuffy nose; loss of smell; and tenderness near the nose. Sometimes, there could be fever, tiredness, weakness, severe cough and runny nose. Sinusitis can be diagnosed by tapping the sinus areas with fingertips. Very rarely, allergic fungal sinusitis pdf lead to infection in the brain or some other complications.


There are many over-the-treatment technique options for nose polyps killers available to provide relief from sinus infections. These can be in the form of tablets or sprays. There are also home remedies for sinus infections like a cold/hot compress, jalapeno pepper, ripe grape juice, etc. These can provide effective relief from sinus symptoms. But acute or chronic sinusitis requires continuous treatment from a specialist. The more you read about Sinuses, the more you get to understand the meaning of it. So if you read this article and other related articles, you are sure to get the required amount of matter for yourself.

Nasal irrigation or nasal lavage is technique of hydrotherapy whereby one is able to completely and thoroughly wash out the nasal passages and sinuses. It is totally safe and it is very effective. So effective in fact, if you were to do absolutely nothing else for your sinuses, this one technique could still radically alter your health for the better.

You may also choose to produce some saline solution for moistening the nasal passages throughout the day and to rinse away pollen and other irritants. You can purchase small spray bottles for the nose at most drug stores. Simply fill the bottle with the above suggested saline preparation. Be sure to change the mixture out daily as well as to wash your spray bottle so as to prevent bacterial buildup. Interesting is what we had aimed to make this article on Chronic Sinusitis. It is up to you to decide if we have succeeded in our mission!

The absence of the above irrigation implements, one can still irrigate the nose by preparing an appropriate mixture of salinated water into a cupped hand and snorting it into each nostril.

You see, if you have chronic sinusitis, chances are good that you have damaged cilia from all of the previous infection. (Cilia are the small hairlike structures that move debris and mucous out of the sinuses and nasal passages.) If you have damaged cilia or impaired ciliary function, your sinuses are not able to clean themselves effectively. Thus, mucous and debris (pollen, dust, dander, etc.) buildup in your sinuses and nasal passages and increase the inflammation and block the sinus openings. Time and tide waits for no man. So once we got an idea for writing on Neti Pot, we decided not to waste time, but to get down to writing about it immediately!

The Most Beneficial Form of Nasal Irrigation is that of Pulsatile Nasal Irrigation

Pulsatile irrigation is a mechanical method of irrigation in which a gentle stream of salinated water is directed through the nasal passages in pulses. This pulsation effectively simulates (and stimulates) ciliary motion, which is often impaired in those with chronic sinusitis. Idea



  • With pulsatile irrigation, one uses a machine designed just for this purpose such as the Grossan Hydro Pulse (shown below).
  • There are other forms of manual irrigation that work quite well also.
  • One is the traditional Neti pot, which has been used by Indian yogis for centuries to keep the nasal passages and sinuses clean.
  • In this method, one takes an implement similar in appearance to a small tea pot (see photo below) and pours salinated water through each nostril.
  • The method is very gentle and recommended in the absence of pulsatile irrigation.
  • To err is human, to forgive is divine.
  • So we would indeed deem you to be divine if you forgive us for any misunderstandings that may arise in this article on Nasal Passages Sinuses. Rolling Eyes



Nasal irrigation steps in for the damaged cilia and does their job for them by removing the debris. In fact, one form of nasal irrigation actually simulates ciliary movement with its pulsatile action and subsequently this stimulates ciliary function such that it may be encouraged toward improvement. There are several forms of nasal irrigation, not all equally effective, though all beneficial. Choose a method most convenient for you-one that you will stick with and utilize at least once daily (twice is better!) for the long haul. As the information we produce in our writing on Sinusitis may be utilized by the reader for informative purposes, it is very important that the information we provide be true. We have indeed maintained this.

Regarding appropriate irrigation technique, the head should be tilted forward over a sink such that when you irrigate one nostril the fluid pours from the other nostril. You should keep your mouth open and try not to swallow while irrigating. For specific irrigation instructions, see the package insert of whichever of the above products you choose for your irrigation purposes. Isn't it amazing how much information can be transferred through a single page? So much stands to gain, and to lose about Sinusitis through a single page.

The preceding, you were introduced to the methods and implements of nasal irrigation, now we need to discuss just what constitutes an appropriate salinated mixture. Before discussing the preparation that you can make yourself, I highly recommend purchasing premixed saline for solution, which is typically PH balanced for the human body and leaves no room for error as there is no guesswork in measurement. In particular, I recommend a product called Breathe-Ease XL above all else. We have used a mixture of seriousness and jokes in this composition on Sinus. This is to liven the mood when reading about Sinus. Evil or Very Mad

Preferable to Utilizing a Generic Bulb Syringe However, is the Nasaline Nasal Irrigator

You can Easily Prepare Your Own Saline Solution for Nasal Irrigation

To do so, you will need non-iodized table salt (some people are allergic to iodine and over time it will irritate the sinuses) and baking soda. Mix 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1 pinch of baking soda into 8 ounces of warm (not cold and not hot!) water. Stir thoroughly to allow the salt and baking soda to completely dissolve. Irrigate with one of the above methods.
