Rhinitis often coincides with sinusitis, so sinusitis is also sometimes known as rhinosinusitis.
Nose Polyps – Polyps are small flesh that grow inside the nose. Polyps are caused by many factors, including mucus. When mucus becomes very thick, mucus will occasionally form spheres and become polyps.
Cystic fibrosis – A disease characterized by thickening of the mucus in various parts of the body, such as the lungs and nasal cavities. Mucus thickening not only precludes the respiratory process but also causes mucus cannot stop the organism that can cause infection.
Disorders of the immune system – Patients with very weak immune systems, such as patients who are HIV-infected or undergoing chemotherapy, are susceptible to sinus because they are more prone to infection.
Facial injury – Trauma on the face, including the cheeks and nose, can alter the physical structure of internal organs, which can lead to sinus blockage
Main Symptoms of Sinusitis:
- A soft face
- The face turns red
- Thick or green mucus
- Excess mucus (which can be felt when the thick mucus passes through the throat)
- Pain in the face where the sinus can be found
- Headache accompanied by pain in the face
Available sinus infection treatment types:
Patients suffering from sinusitis can be treated by a GP. First, the doctor will perform a physical examination, including measuring body temperature, feeling the structure of the face, or looking for signs of sinusitis in the body, such as red spots or green nasal fluids. It can also check the patient’s medical history, especially if the patient has been diagnosed with flu or a cold before symptoms of sinusitis occur.
