Home Remedies For Sinusitis

It is defined as an inflammation of the mucous membranes of the Para-nasal sinuses that occurs in three stages: acute, sub-acute, and chronic". Sinuses are the hollow spaces in the bone of the cheeks and forehead. The sinuses are directly connected to the nasal cavities. Sinusitis occurs if one or more of the defense processes or factors are amiss and bacterial growth occurs in the para-nasal sinuses. This is generally caused by a viral, bacterial, or fungal infection.

It is the most common problem of the respiratory (breathing) system. It can affect people of any age, although children have very small or non-existent sinuses until the age of around five or six.  The inflammation of the nasal sinuses is usually triggered by inadequate draining due to allergies, infections or structural problems of the nose such as narrow drainage passages or a deviated septum.

Causes of Sinusitis:

The causes of sinusitis may be categorized in the following ways:

Lifestyle Causes - The pregnancy, working with children, and smoking are some of the main causes of sinusitis.

Developmental Causes - Developmental disorders, such as cystic fibrosis, can lead to sinusitis.

Tumors - Sinus and nasal tumors can block the sinus opening, which leads to sinusitis.

The most Common Causes of Acute Sinusitis are:

  • Virus. The viral infection may paralyze or destroy the cilia so that they are unable to move mucus out of the nose, which may lead to the sinusitis.

  • Bacteria. When the opening of the sinus becomes blocked and the infected mucus cannot move out of the body, it creates an environment for bacteria to grow. The bacteria in turn create an acid environment in the sinuses, which further paralyzes the cilia. Thus causes sinusitis.

  • Fungus: Fungus is a plant or mold that can be ingested with food or inhaled in the air. Once in the body, it can affect the immune system and ignites the sinusitis.

  • Scuba diving. Scuba diving while suffering from a cold can create too much pressure in the sinuses and leave room for bacteria to grow.

  • Foreign objects: Young children sometimes try to put objects in their nostrils, and this can introduce bacteria into the sinuses.

  • Medications: The side effect of certain medications may affect the functioning of the mucous membrane of the paranasal sinuses, which in turn causing the sinusitis.

Chronic Sinusitis is most often caused by:

  • Poor air quality: Pollution, fumes, dust, smokes or crowded living conditions - can affect the function of the sinuses and mucous membrane.

  • Weak immune system: When the immune system is not strong, the mucous membrane and cilia cannot do their job to resist infection.

  • Hormones: In a few cases, hormonal imbalances can lead to sinusitis.

  • Stress: The mucous membrane and sinuses can react to stress. One such condition is known as vasomotor rhinitis, in which stress causes excessive swelling and mucus production.

Some Important Symptoms of Sinusitis includes:

  • Typical Symptoms of Chronic Rhinosinusitis
    Symptoms of bacterial sinusitis typically include sinus congestion, sinus discharge, and facial pain or headaches from sinus pressure.

  • Fever May or May Not be Related to Sinusitis
    Fever, which is more prevalent in children than adults, can occur with either a cold or bacterial sinusitis.

  • Thick yellow-green nasal drainage shows problem in the paranasal sinuses.

  • Sore throat, cough, bad breath, nausea and/or vomiting are also some symptoms of sinusitis.

  • Irritability or fatigue

  • Swelling around the eyes may occur during sinuses problem.

  • Headache: If you have a headache, when you wake up in the morning. It shows the primary symptom of sinusitis.

  • Infection in the maxillary sinuses can cause your upper jaw and teeth to ache, and your cheeks to become tender to the touch.

  •  Stuffy or runny nose
