About Sinus Infections

The sinuses are air-filled cavities within the skull. When the entryway to the sinuses become blocked, the normally air-filled cavities become filled with fluid and pus called referred to as sinus infection. Sinus infections often cause symptoms of nasal congestion, nasal drainage, postnasal drip, loss of smell, and facial pain.


Sinus Infection Treatment

Most sinus infections can be treated with medication. The goal of medications is to reduce inflammation and swelling in the nasal passageways, mechanically irrigate mucopurulence and biofilms, and fight bacterial infections. This is done with the use of nasal sprays, irrigations, allergy management, antibiotics, and steroids. If medical management fails and symptoms persist, various in-office procedures or surgeries can be considered.
