Sinus Infection Treatment
Sinus Infection Treatment in Aberdeen, NJ
As winter progresses and you battle Colds, Congestion and Allergy Symptoms, you become more vulnerable to a sinus infection. A sinus infection forms after fluid is trapped in the sinuses, air pockets located behind your eyes and around your nasal cavity, often after you are done with a cold or allergic reaction.
Types of Sinus Infections
There are two main types of sinus infections: acute and chronic. Determining which type you have will determine treatment.
Acute sinusitis lasts less than four weeks and stems directly from a respiratory illness, typically a cold or cough that results in congestion.
Chronic sinusitis occurs when an infection lasts for over eight weeks or you experience more than four sinus infections per year.
Symptoms of a Sinus Infection
A sinus infection can exhibit some or all of the following symptoms:
Runny or stuffed nose
Pressure or pain on the face
Loss of smell
Treating a Sinus Infection
Treatment options vary based on how much the infection has progressed and your age. If your sinuses are being clogged by a bacterial infection, your doctor will prescribe antibiotics in order to fight it. If it is a weaker infection, your doctor will suggest using either decongestants, ibuprofen, nasal sprays, vaporizers and humidifiers to reduce swelling and pain.
