How bad is your Sinusitis Problem? Is it mild, moderate or severe? An ENT specialist can help to decide and determine the extent of your condition and the steps necessary to alleviate the problem.
Common Medical Condition
Sinus problems are one of the most common medical conditions in the United States. Unfortunately, many individuals who have consistent sinus problems have become accustomed to just feeling sick. We are here to tell you it does not have to be that way. You do not have to live with sinusitis and you should not have to rely on antibiotics either. There are other options…
An expert ENT specialist in South Florida will offer a wide range to therapeutic treatment options for breaking the cycle of sinusitis or sinus infection.
Sinusitis and its Symptoms
What is sinusitis? It occurs when the sinus lining is inflamed. Your sinus lining will become swollen and then cause the sinus opening to be blocked, preventing the normal drainage of mucus. For this reason, you may experience recurring sinus infections, which is dubbed ‘sinusitis.’
Don’t Confuse the Two
Though somewhat related, sinusitis is different from allergies. Allow an ENT specialist to effectively and accurately diagnose the problem. Chronic or acute sinusitis will usually precede an allergy attack or cold. Allergies can result in inflammation of the sinuses, resulting in sinus blockage. In this case, the normal flow of mucus is prevented, causing a build up inside the sinus and then infection.
Do not settle for bad health when there are better options. If you are having symptoms that cause disruption of your normal way of living, then you need medical help. Some of these symptoms may include:
- Difficulty breathing through your nostril
- Facial pain
- Sinus pressure
- Nasal congestion
- Swelling around the cheeks, nose, eyes and forehead
- Noticeable green or yellow mucus
- Sore throat
- Bad breath
Get Medical Help Quickly
Unlike an allergy, sinusitis will usually require diagnosis and treatment from an ENT, preventing future incidence. If you suffer from frequent sinusitis, or an infection that last for more than twelve weeks, this could be chronic sinusitis.
Chronic sinusitis can result in sinus damage if left untreated. An in-office balloon sinuplasty procedure can provide quick relieve from all sinus problems. Sinus surgery can take care of nasal polyps and other severe sinus problems.
