Sinus infection, nothing to sneeze at

Sinus infection or Sinusitis is an inflammation of the paranasal sinuses, which may be due to infection, allergy, or autoimmune issues; in essence a weakened immune system can facilitate the development of a sinus infection. Most cases are due to a viral infection and resolve over the course of 10 days. It is a common condition; for example, in the United States more than 24 million cases occur annually. A sinus infection can be acute (going on less than four weeks) subacute (4–8 weeks) or chronic (going on for 8 weeks or more). All three types of sinusitis (sinus infection) have similar symptoms, and are thus often difficult to distinguish. Acute sinusitis is very common. Roughly ninety percent of adults have had a sinus infection at some point in their life.

How does one know if they may be getting a sinus infection may be helpful in avoiding any form of a sinus infection and of course a quick response is recommended by boosting the immune system. A headache, facial pain or pressure of a dull, constant, or aching sort over the affected sinuses is common with both acute and chronic stages of a sinus infection. This pain is typically localized to the involved sinus and may worsen when the affected person bends over or when lying down. Pain often starts on one side of the head and progresses to both sides. An acute and chronic sinus infection may be accompanied by thick nasal discharge that is usually green in color and may contain pus (purulent) and or blood. Often a localized headache or toothache is present, and it is these symptoms that distinguish a sinus-related headache from other types of headaches, such as tension and migraine headaches. Infection of the eye socket is possible, which may result in the loss of sight and is accompanied by fever and severe illness. Another possible complication of a sinus infection is the infection of the bones (osteomyelitis) of the forehead and other facial bones – Pott’s puffy tumor. As one can see, a sinus infection can be worse then thought of at first and having a strong immune system is the solution to avoiding such a sinus infection.

Sinus infections can also cause inner ear problems due to the congestion of the nasal passages. This can be demonstrated by dizziness, “a pressurized or heavy head”, or vibrating sensations in the head. Recent studies suggest that up to 90% of “sinus headaches” are actually migraines. The confusion occurs in part because migraine involves activation of the trigeminal nerves, which innervate both the sinus region and the meninges surrounding the brain. As a result, it is difficult to accurately determine the site from which the pain originates. Additionally, nasal congestion can be a common result of migraine headaches, due to the autonomic nerve stimulation that can also cause in tearing (lacrimation) and a runny nose (rhinorrhea). A study found that patients with “sinus headaches” responded to triptan migraine medications, but stated dissatisfaction with their treatment when they are treated with decongestants or antibiotics. People with migraines do not typically have the thick nasal discharge that is a common symptom of a sinus infection.

The close proximity of the brain to the sinuses makes the most dangerous complication of sinusitis, particularly involving the frontal and sphenoid sinuses, infection of the brain by the invasion of anaerobic bacteria through the bones or blood vessels. Abscesses, meningitis, and other life-threatening conditions may result. In extreme cases the patient may experience mild personality changes, headache, altered consciousness, visual problems, seizures, coma, and possibly death.

The vast majority of cases of sinusitis are caused by viruses and will therefore resolve without antibiotics. However, if symptoms do not resolve within 10 days, amoxicillin is a reasonable antibiotic to use first for treatment with amoxicillin/clavulanate (Augmentin) being indicated when the patient’s symptoms do not improve on amoxicillin alone. The presence of aerobic and anaerobic beta-lactamase producing organisms may account for this failure. These organisms can “protect” even non beta lactamase producing bacteria from penicillins. Fluoroquinolones, and a newer macrolide antibiotic such as clarithromycin or a tetracycline like doxycycline, are used in patients who are allergic to penicillins. One study found 60 to 90% of people do not experience resolution of maxillary sinusitis using antibiotics. A short-course (3–7 days) of antibiotics seems to be just as effective as the typical longer-course (10–14 days) of antibiotics for patients who present with clinically diagnosed acute-bacterial sinusitis without any other severe disease or complicating factors.

Instead of having a sinus infection, it would seem wise to simply boost one’s immune system to prevent such a virus like a sinus infection from materializing. So many viruses, like diseases, have the potential to be avoided, where antiobiotics and potential health risks are avoided. Strengthening the immune system will flat out prevent so many viruses, infections and diseases and a sinus infection is no exception except that a sinus infection is very common. Prevent getting a sinus infection by having a strong immune system with fucoidan in a suspended matrix gel named UMI. In case you have a sinus infection, rush your order of a box of UMI with fucoidan and give your immune system the boost it needs to end your sinus infection. Remember that a strong immune system prevents viruses and diseases, including cancer.
