Infection Treatment

A sinus infection, also called sinusitis, occurs when the tissue lining the sinuses becomes swollen or inflamed. Sinus pain and pressure are common with inflammation of the sinuses.

While healthy sinuses are filled with air, blocked sinuses fill with fluid, which allows germs to grow, resulting in infection. A sinus blockage can be caused by a viral infection, allergies, nasal polyps, or even a deviated septum.

Sinus infection treatments include nasal sprays, nasal irrigation, or (for viral infections), a course of antibiotics, such as amoxicillin.

Sinus infection symptoms may include:

Sinusitis can be caused by a viral infection, allergies (allergic rhinitis), nasal polyps, or even a deviated septum. Most sinus infections occur when the nasal passages fill with fluid because of a viral infection. This fluid allows germs to flourish, resulting in a bacterial infection.

Certain factors can increase your risk for developing a sinus infection, including:

    Exposure to secondhand smoke

    Hay fever or other allergies that affect the sinuses

During your online visit your doctor will ask you questions about your symptoms to help determine the cause. The doctor will let you know if a physical exam or lab tests (such as a tissue sample from the nose) are needed to confirm the diagnosis.

You can lower your risk of getting a sinus infection by washing your hands often with soap and water and avoid people who have colds or other infections.

Managing allergies like hay fever can help you prevent nasal congestion that can lead to infection. Also avoid cigarette smoke and consider using a humidifier if you live in a region with dry air.

If you get recurring sinus infections due to allergies, your doctor may recommend a nasal spray or regular nasal irrigation. A nasal steroid spray, such as fluticasone propionate, can also help keep allergies under control.
