Sinusitis, also known as sinus infection. It is the inflammation of the air cavities within the passages of the nose. It is a common condition and is usually caused by a viral infection. Sinusitis might start because of a cold or allergies. Acute sinusitis is usually caused by a viral infection and often develops rapidly. Acute sinusitis usually starts with cold like symptoms such as a runny, stuffy nose and facial pain. It usually lasts for 4 weeks or less, and the symptoms often begin to clear up within a week without any treatment. Chronic sinusitis is usually caused by a bacterial or fungal infection. These infections may be difficult to treat. Chronic sinusitis can lead to permanent changes in the mucous membranes that line the sinuses and may make you more prone to sinus infections. If you think if there is any alternative to this, yes there is. The Homeopathic Alternative Homeopathy is a natural medical system that utilizes extremely small doses of substances from the plant, mineral, or animal kingdom to augment a person’s natural defenses. Rather than inhibiting or suppressing symptoms, homeopathic medicines are prescribed for their unique ability to cause the symptoms. Ultimately, these natural medicines strengthen the person’s own defenses enabling them to regain health more rapidly.
