What is Sinus (Sinusitis)?
A sinus is a hollow space in the body. There are many types of sinus, but sinusitis affects the paranasal sinuses, the spaces behind the face that lead to the nasal cavity.
The paranasal sinuses have the same mucous membrane lining as the nose. They produce a slimy secretion called mucus. This keeps the nasal passages moist and traps dirt particles and germs. The problem isn’t the sinuses themselves. They’re just hollow air spaces within the bones between your eyes, behind your cheekbones, and in the forehead. They make mucus, which keeps the inside of your nose moist. That, in turn, helps protect against dust, allergens, and pollutants.
Sinusitis occurs when mucus builds up and the sinuses become inflamed. If the tissue in your nose is swollen from allergies, a cold, or something in the environment, it can block the sinus passages. Your sinuses can’t drain, and you may feel pain.
There are eight sinus cavities in total. They are paired, with one of each on the left and right side of the face.
- Two sinus cavities are in your forehead.
- Two are behind each cheekbone.
- Two sinus cavities are within the bones between your eyes.
- Two are behind each eye.
Doctors often refer to sinusitis as rhinosinusitis, because inflammation of the sinuses nearly always occurs with inflammation of the nose known as rhinitis.
How many types of Sinus exists?
Sinusitis always involves nasal swelling and a buildup of mucus, but there are different types, and they can last for different lengths of time.
The different types are:
- Acute Sinusitis: This lasts up to 4 weeks and is the most common type.
- Subacute Sinusitis: Symptoms last longer than the normal acute period, for between 4 and 12 weeks
- Chronic Sinusitis: Symptoms persist, or continually return, after 12 weeks. It may need more invasive treatment, and possibly surgery.
Recovery time and treatment depend on the type of sinusitits.
What cause Sinus problem?
Sinusitis can stem from various factors, but it always results from fluid becoming trapped in the sinuses. This fuels the growth of germs.
- Viruses: In adults, 90 percent cases of sinusitis result from a virus
- Bacteria: In adults, 1 case in 10 is caused by bacteria
- Pollutants: Chemicals or irritants in the air can trigger a buildup of mucus
- Fungi: The sinuses either react to fungi in the air, as in allergic fungal sinusitis (AFS), or they are invaded by fungi, as in chronic indolent sinusitis.
- Nasal polyps: These tissue growths can block the nasal passages or sinuses.
What role Nasal Polyps play in Sinus Infection?
Nasal polyps are soft, painless, noncancerous growths on the lining of your nasal passages or sinuses. They hang down like teardrops or grapes. They result from chronic inflammation and are associated with asthma, recurring infection, allergies, drug sensitivity or certain immune disorders.
Nasal polyps are associated with irritation and swelling (inflammation) of the lining of your nasal passages and sinuses that lasts more than 12 weeks (chronic sinusitis).
However, it’s possible to have chronic sinusitis without nasal polyps.
Nasal polyps themselves are soft and lack sensation, so if they’re small, you may not be aware you have them. Multiple growths or a large polyp may block your nasal passages and sinuses.
What are Sinus Infection Symptoms (Symptoms of sinusitis)
Symptoms vary, depending on the length and severity of the infection.
If the patient has two or more of the following symptoms and thick, green or yellow nasal discharge, they may be diagnosed with acute sinusitis.
