Sinusitis is an infection that involves inflammation of the nasal path and sinuses. The main job of sinuses is to produce mucus that protects the body against germs. Excess production of mucus, generally during cold leads to the generation of bacteria and viruses in the sinus cavity.
Viral sinus infection lasts for around a week and is cured without any specific medication. Bacterial sinus sustains beyond a week or two and needs proper treatment.
Based on duration, sinus can be classified into three types-acute, subacute and chronic.
Acute sinusitis is the one that lasts generally for 7-10 days or even 4 weeks (in case of the bacterial sinus). Subacute sinusitis covers around 3 months. Bacterial infection and seasonal allergies are the main causes of subacute sinusitis. Chronic sinusitis lasts beyond the period of 3 months. Usually, patients with persistent allergies are observed to suffer from chronic sinusitis.
Certain prominent symptoms of sinus include;
Pain in teeth and ears
