Frequently Asked Questions

Sinusitis or sinus infection is a condition in which the flow of air in and out of the sinus or nasal passages is blocked.

Various factors can cause sinusitis, but it is a result when the fluid is trapped in the sinuses and fuels the growth of germs such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and pollutants.

The symptoms of Sinusitis are a blocked nose, facial pain, and pressure, nasal discharge, reduced sense of smell, congestion, cough, fever, headache, and tiredness.

No, but many factors such as allergies and fever affect the sinuses.

Chronic sinusitis is a condition that occurs when the spaces inside your nose and head are inflamed and swollen for a longer time, despite treatment.

Sinusitis is prone to people with deviated nasal septum and allergies, especially when allergies are untreated, it increases the risk of sinusitis or sinus infection.

We can cure predisposing conditions if we know what is causing the sinus infection, based on which then long-term solution/medication is recommended.

Sinus surgery is recommended when adequate medications like antibiotics have failed to cure your sinus condition.

Sinus surgery is not painful; usually, it takes 15 to 20 minutes or sometimes 3hrs surgery based on your sinus condition.

Sinus Infection may spread to the brain, eyes, etc which may be dangerous and lead to chronic rhinosinusitis, meningitis, brain abscess, or other extra-sinus complications. Therefore, it is better to treat sinusitis with medical management as early as possible.

The early measures to be taken care of at home are steaming 2-3 times, hydration, and taking care of allergies to avoid any complications.

One of the new procedures available that will cure sinusitis faster is Balloon sinuplasty. 
Balloon sinuplasty is a type of endoscopic nasal surgery that uses small balloon catheters that inflate to drain the large nasal sinuses. 

The benefits of Balloon sinuplasty are lesser bleeding, short hospital stay, faster recovery, and no intended damage to the nasal tract.

Do not ignore it. Follow basic solutions like steaming, and medications and clear the sinuses with oils.
