Are You Suffering with Painful Sinus Symptoms?
Is There Any Relief from Sinus Aching, Pressure and Swelling?
- Sneezing, sniffling, coughing
- Sleepless nights
- Nasal drip or congestion
- Facial pain
- Puffy or swollen eyes
If your cold won't seem to go away, or keeps coming back, it might be due to chronic sinusitis.
Sinus Swelling Can Trap Bacteria and Viruses
When the openings of the sinus cavities (the hollow spaces behind and around the eyes and nose) swell, this causes congestion and impaired sinus function. Bacteria and viruses can become trapped within the stagnant sinus cavities, leading to pain and infection.
The Cycle of Sinus Infection Pain and Sinusitis
As miserable sinus symptoms increase, sufferers will attempt to treat sinus pain with over-the-counter (OTC) medications or decongestants, or trips to the doctor and prescribed antibiotics. These remedies may provide temporary relief, but will do nothing to relieve the underlying cause of the infection.
Chronic sinus pain can recur several times per year. Sufferers become fed up and frustrated with the cycle of feeling sick, being absent from work or school, and missing out on enjoyable time with family and friends. Sufferers assume that chronic sinus pain is something that they must live with. Fortunately, real relief is possible.
