Sinus Infection Treatment

Sinus Infection Treatment in Cheltenham, PA

Sinus infections are common throughout the winter and spring. Your sinuses are air pockets located around your face and the ones located in your forehead, cheekbones and along your nose can develop periodic infections. You are most vulnerable to a sinus infection after a cold, the flu or experiencing symptoms of your seasonal allergies, when fluid is more prone to getting trapped in the cavities.

What kind of sinus infection do I have?

There are two main types of sinus infections. A doctor will be able to determine which type you have in order to provide the correct treatment to relieve symptoms.

  • Acute sinusitis develops as a direct reaction to an upper respiratory illness. You will likely have a cold or cough that is resolved before a sinus infection develops. This type of sinus infection lasts less than four weeks.
  • If you have a sinus infection that lasts over eight weeks or you experience more than four sinus infections in a year, you may have chronic sinusitis.

How can I tell if I have a sinus infection?

Common symptoms of a sinus infection include:

  • Stuffed/runny nose and congestion
  • Postnasal drip
  • Headache
  • Pressure or pain in the face
  • Fever
  • Exhaustion

How can I treat a sinus infection?

After determining the type of sinus infection you have, your doctor will be able to figure out the best way to treat it. If your sinus infection is stemming from a bacterial infection, you will need to be prescribed antibiotics. If the infection has another causes, your doctor may recommend over-the-counter treatments including ibuprofen, decongestants and nasal sprays as well as at-home treatments including vaporizers and humidifiers to keep the air moist and reduce swelling in the face.
