Sinusitis

Western Diagnosis

Sinusitis is an inflammation of the nasal sinuses that can be either acute or chronic.

Acute sinusitis is often caused by bacterial or viral infections of the nose, throat and upper respiratory tract. Chronic sinusitis may be the result of small growths in the nose, injury to the nasal bones, smoking and exposure to irritating fumes. Allergic sinusitis may be caused by allergies such as food (especially to milk and dairy) and hayfever.

The symptoms of sinusitis include cough, difficulty breathing, earache, facial pain, headache and cranial pressure, loss of the sense of smell, sensitivity in the area of the forehead and cheekbones, stuffy/runny nose and profuse discharge of mucus.
