Bony sinuses cavities open into nasal cavities in human body. These cavities are mucous coated. Sinusitis is the result of swelling in the mucous layer.
There are four pairs of sinuses in our heads, each pair is located in each side of the head. In human anatomy it called Paranasal sinus.
A common cause of sinusitis is a common cold. Swelling in Sinus membrane occurs due to infection. The temporary congestion in small holes of sinus and blood contraction causes headaches. If the sinus gets infected, the symptoms become more severe.
Cause and symptoms of sinusitis
Cold, headaches and pain just above the eye, pain around the cheeks. Inflammation of the cheeks, sinus pain in the cheeks of the little children.
Many other causes of sinusitis are dental infections, allergies, measles, pneumonia, urban pollution, diving, swimming, quick temperature changes, chemical fumes, and faulty construction of the nasal septum (the inner curtain divider of nose) causes problem in breathing. Small holes of sinus which open in nostril can be partly or completely block due to sinus inflammation of the membranes of the nasal sinus. Initially, one or two holes are affected, but some time they all are closed together. Mucus collects inside sinus puts pressure on the walls of the sinus cause pain. This causes discomfort, fever, pain and difficulty in breathing. First thin water comes from nose. Then it becomes white or yellow and sometimes green. It reveals the stages of transition. As water discharge is caused by viral infection, the bacterium (germs) replaces it in the green-yellowish. In addition fever, feeling chills, dizziness, feeling of weakness, and other typical symptoms of sinusitis also appear.
Sinusitis is mainly of two types, acute and chronic sinusitis. Other symptoms of sinusitis are sometimes blood in the fluid that flows from nose but in very small quantities, astringent taste, smell sense is impaired, in eyes lachrymal secretion from glands increases and start false tear, swelling on the face.

Acute sinusitis patient can get enough relief from the usual measures. During cold or fever you should rest at home. Also do not eat cold things, Cold water, ice cream, cold drinks, etc., should be avoided. To prevent the acute sinusitis attack we should avoid tobacco smoke. Smoke causes irritation in the lining of the nose and sinuses. Frequently cleaning of nose should be avoided during colds it can cause infection in sinus.
Little information about chronic sinusitis is necessary. The swelling in the sinus can stay longer. In India Many patients are suffering by it. Their noses are frequently jammed. Other symptoms are similar to acute sinusitis.
