Sinuses Photos, Know the Symptoms of a Sinus Infection

Knowing the symptoms of a sinus infection may spell the difference between suffering from sinusitis and living a healthy and normal life. Nobody wants to have sinusitis as it brings about pain and discomfort in our daily lives.

However, it is difficult, and often tricky, to tell the symptoms of a sinus infection apart from other sickness because of their apparent similarities. Let us consider as an example the common cold. A person suffering from sinusitis may have the symptoms you have a clogged sinus cold, such as nasal congestion and discharge and severe headache and pain or pressure in specific areas of the face. This is because a cold, by itself, is among the many symptoms of sinusitis. If left untreated, a sinusitis that is mistaken for just a common cold, may lead to more serious complications. Laughing

Once you have detected the symptoms of a sinus infection, it is recommended to take immediate action either by seeking medical attention or by simply doing some self-care measures such as nasal washing. Always remember that the best medical advice remains to be the saying that an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. There has been a gradual introduction to the world of Sinusitis Symptoms projected in this article. We had done this so that the actual meaning of the article will sink within you.



  • Take a look at these simple guidelines to help you differentiate a sinusitis from a common cold: 1.
  • Duration of the condition Monitoring how long a common cold lasts is the most perceptible way to differentiate it from a sinusitis.
  • The duration of a common cold actually varies but it usually lasts for not more than 10 days.
  • On the other hand, a sinus infection lasts for approximately 10 to 14 days or more.
  • Specifically, the symptoms of an acute sinusitis last for less than 4 weeks while those of a chronic sinusitis last for more than 8 weeks.
  • In case the sinusitis recurs for about 3 or more acute episodes in a year, it is also classified as chronic.



Nasal Discharge

Another indication that there is a sinus infection is through the color of the nasal discharge. For sinusitis sufferers, the discharge is typically thick with pus that is yellowish to yellow-green in color. This is a sign of bacterial infection. On the contrary, a common cold is due to the effects of a viral infection. It is for this reason that the nasal discharge is clear or whitish in color. We were a bit tentative when embarking on this project on Nasal Congestion. However, using the grit and determination we have, we have produced some fine reading material on Nasal Congestion.

Facial Pressure or Pain

People with a common cold may sometimes feel facial pressure or pain. But with sinusitis sufferers, the pain may most likely be felt on specific areas of the face where the sinuses are located. The pain may be experienced across the forehead, over the cheeks, or behind the eyes. If the sinus infection occurs around the eyes, the eyes may be red, bulging or painful. If it occurs over the cheeks, it may travel to the teeth and the pain in the teeth is increased by bending over. Using the intuition I had on Chronic Sinusitis, I thought that writing this article would indeed be worth the trouble. Most of the relevant information on Chronic Sinusitis has been included here.

The hollow bone found below the eyes and inside the cheek bone is called maxilla. The space inside this bone is called maxillary sinus. If there is any infection in this area, it leads to maxillary sinus disease. In this case pain behind the upper teeth and cheek bones is reported by most patients.



  • Causes The causes are usually periapical abscess or extensive marginal periodontitis or immediately following dental extraction.
  • Sometimes the retention cysts arising from the sinus mucosa can cause the problem.
  • Tumor like lesions or benign tumors can cause deviation or erosion of the sinus walls.
  • Sometimes malignant tumors like gingival malignancies or sarcomas can cause this disease. Idea



Definition The frequently unrecognized cause of fever of critically ill patients is maxillary nosocomial sinusitis in short MNS. Sinusitis treatment is an easy way to get rid of sinus drainage, nasal tracheal tube removal or nasal gastric tube removal and through antibiotics.

Diagnosis Sinus disease of odontogenic origin is evaluated using radiographic examinations like conventional intraoral periapical radiography, standard plain films of the paranasal sinuses, dental panoramic radiography, CT, and MRI may be useful in evaluating. The radiological examinations of both dental structures and the maxillary sinus are reviewed. The anatomic relationship between the dental structures and maxillary sinus can be established through panoramic radiography. Surgical intervention or placement of implants is performed depending on the condition of the patient.



  • Symptoms Dental pain is usually confused with the jaw pain caused by this disease.
  • The jaw pain associated with this disease is always accompanied by other symptoms like fatigue, fever, nasal discharge and headache.
  • The pain occurs at the back of the upper teeth while the dental pain is felt anywhere in the teeth.
  • A dentist will examine the area and will tell if it is dental pain or not.
  • For this disease medication should be taken immediately.
  • If delayed, it may lead to further complications and even surgery.
  • Generally it is cured by decongestants and anti inflammatory drugs.
  • In some cases surgery may be required.
  • The results of one reading this composition is a good understanding on the topic of Sinusitis.
  • So do go ahead and read this to learn more about Sinusitis. Laughing
  • Due to the advancements on our technology a lot of sinus infection treatment has already been discovered.
  • And since the symptoms of sinusitis are same as those of colds or allergies, diagnosis can be misleading. Smile



Using Home Remedies Could Treat Sinusitis as Well

The use of steam inhaler to soothe inflamed sinus cavities, applying hot compress on the nose and cheeks over the inflamed area can be comforting, taking hot shower and drinking hot tea and lots of liquids are just some of the techniques that you can try at home.

Common symptoms of sinusitis are headache, fever, weakness, tiredness, cough and nasal congestion. Doctors would also likely look for swelling, tenderness and redness of the skin over the cheekbones. Transillumination by shining a bright light in a darkened room against the cheek or forehead, looking for blockages is also one way of detecting sinusitis.


What is a Sinus Infection (Sinusitis)?





Surgery like endoscopic sinus surgery which is less invasive than the conventional sinus surgery, would enlarge the openings of the sinuses to allow drainage. But surgery should be considered only after most of the treatments failed. It would be hopeless trying to get people who are not interested in knowing more about Sinus to read articles pertaining to it. Only people interested in Sinus will enjoy this article.

Irrigation is One Way of Treating Sinusitis

Sinus irrigation is to wash your sinuses daily with salt water. However, if done incorrectly, problems may arise. Using too much salt can dry out the sinuses while using a little salt can increase the swelling. A lot of imagination is required in writing. People may think that writing on Sinus infection treatment guidebook is very easy; on the contrary, knowledge and imagination has to be merged to create an interesting composition. Embarassed

But as Most Physicians Would Agree, Prevention is Still Better Than Cure

So while still on early stages of sinus infection, treat it immediately. Prevention can be as simple as avoiding cigarette smoke and other air pollutants if you have allergies. Daily hand washing will surely help prevent colds as well as taking in Vitamin C. Avoid air travel as well if you have a cold or an allergy attack because changes in air pressure can cause a vacuum to form in the sinuses leading to a lot of pain. This article has been written with the intention of showing some illumination to the meaning of Wash Sinuses. This is so that those who don't know much about Wash Sinuses can learn more about it.

Keeping your sinuses well hydrated would keep the mucus membranes from drying out which prevents your sinuses against bacterial infection. Prescription drugs are also ways of sinus infection treatment like antibiotics to control present bacterial infection, decongestants to reduce congestion, mucolytics, antihistamines and other pain medications to reduce any pain that you may have are some. However, too much relying on drugs could also make you dependent on them. Smile

We All Know How It Feels

We've felt the pain. The pressure builds until you think you can't handle it any more. Your head feels like it's twice its normal size and ready to burst. You know what I'm talking about: Sinus problems and sinus infections; whatever you'd like to call them. They can really make your life miserable for weeks at a time, especially during the winter months. Sinusitis, most commonly known as sinus infection, happens when the sinuses get blocked and mucus and air cannot flow freely through them. Here's a statistic to think about: 30% of all people suffer from sinusitis at least once a year. Put that in perspective and that means about 1.8 billion people suffer from one sinus infection or another during the year. This includes those who suffer short term (acute: 1-3 weeks), long term (chronic: 3-8 weeks) and recurrent (multiple times throughout the year) sinus problems. Evil or Very Mad

None of those are fun to experience; you have places to be, people to see, and things to do. You can't afford to be sick for lengthy periods of time. If you're part of that 30%, then you would probably like to know what you can do to prevent sinus infections from making your life a mess for weeks at a time. Simple activities, using a humidifier, and regularly cleansing nasal passages are a few good ways that can help decrease sinus infection symptoms. These symptoms can also be combated by using a nasal spray to clean, flush, and kill the harmful bacteria out of your nasal passages and sinus cavities. Patience was exercised in this article on Sinus Headaches. Without patience, it would not have been possible to write extensively on Sinus Headaches.

Personally, Sinus Headaches Make Me Want to Die

I feel like I'm in slow motion. A helicopter sounds like it is just above my head with its choppers going constantly. The pressure mounts in my sinus cavities and fills every whole from my brain to my face. I can't concentrate on anything and everyday tasks become burdens. I couldn't imagine dealing with sinus headaches on a regular basis. Nobody wants to go around feeling like that. Life's hard enough without your head beating like a drum.

Sinus Infection Symptoms can Hit You in a Number of Ways

They include: - Fever - Headache - Runny nose or nasal congestion - Cough - Ear ache or ear infection - Swelling around the eyes - Upper jaw and tooth ache - Tenderness around nose, ear, and cheeks - Weakness or fatigue We have actually followed a certain pattern while writing on Sinus Headaches. We have used simple words and sentences to facilitate easy understanding for the reader. Laughing
