Sinus Infection Symptoms
A sinus infection (also referred to as “sinusitis”) can produce the following symptoms:
· A headache
· Facial pain or pressure
· A stuffy or runny nose
· Postnasal drip
· Bad breath
· A sore throat
Sinus Infection Causes
The skull contains numerous hollow cavities (sinuses). Normally, these cavities are filled with air. But when fluid builds up—for example, due to allergies or a cold—it creates the perfect breeding ground for germs, and this can lead to a bacterial or viral sinus infection.
Sinus Infection Treatment
Treatment for a sinus infection will vary from one patient to another depending on what’s causing the infection. For instance, while antibiotics are commonly used to treat bacterial infections, this type of medication isn’t appropriate for a viral infection. Our experienced providers can recommend the treatment approach that’s best suited to your needs.
In the meantime, you may be able to relieve some of your sinus infection symptoms by:
· Taking over-the-counter medication
· Using a nasal spray
· Breathing in steam
· Applying a warm compress to your face
