Chronic sinus infections and sinusitis
Sinusitis is an inflammation of the sinuses. Your sinuses produce mucus, which drains into your nose. Chronic sinus infections are a type of sinusitis that lasts for 12 weeks or more. When your sinuses are inflamed, normal drainage is blocked, and mucus builds up. This can lead to a sinus infection. Symptoms include:
- Runny nose
- Facial pain/pressure
The causes of sinus infections
Chronic sinus infections are usually caused by an underlying condition that makes it difficult for the sinuses to drain, such as a blockage in the nasal passages or a deviated septum. Allergies, nasal polyps, and other conditions can also contribute to sinus infections.Learn more about sinus infections
Chronic sinus infections need long-term solutions
If you’ve been suffering for a long time, you’ve likely tried everything you can think of. Medications may help in the short term, but they often come with unwanted side effects. And at-home remedies like steam inhalation and nasal irrigation may provide some temporary relief, but they don’t usually address the underlying cause of the pain.
If you’re looking for a long-term solution to your chronic sinus pain, we offer several solutions.
