Symptoms of Sinusitis

Our sinus doctors see a lot of these symptoms caused by sinusitis, which include:

  • A runny or stuffed-up nose
  • Postnasal drainage
  • Facial pain or pressure
  • Coughing
  • Congestion
  • A loss of smell
  • Fevers or headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Dental pain
  • Bad breath

If you have multiple of these symptoms, it’s likely that you have sinusitis. There are two different types of sinusitis – acute and chronic. If you have acute sinusitis, you will likely have these symptoms for a few weeks. However, with chronic sinusitis, you may find yourself suffering from these symptoms for months – or even years!

Risk Factors for Sinusitis

There are many different risk factors for sinusitis. Some of these are:

  • Smoking
  • Infections
  • Allergies
  • Nasal passage abnormalities
  • Certain medical conditions

Treating Sinusitis

If you think you may have sinusitis, the first thing you’ll want to do is go to go to your sinus doctor. Depending on the severity of the sinusitis, we may recommend different methods of treatment. Some of these include the following:

  • For more serious sinus infections, we may prescribe you with antibiotics that you’ll have to take for about ten days.
  • For simpler sinus infections, over-the-counter decongestants and saline nasal washes will work just fine.
  • Other ways you can alleviate some of the symptoms of sinusitis are by using warm compresses and steam or other warm, moist air.
