Acute sinusitis

Diagnosis

DAD Ayurveda doctor may ask about your acute sinusitis symptoms. He may feel tenderness in your nose and face and look inside your nose. DAD Ayurveda practitioners can usually make a diagnosis based on a physical exam.

Other methods you may use to diagnose your acute sinusitis and rule out other conditions include:

  • Nasal endoscopy. A thin, flexible tube (endoscope) with a fiber-optic light inserted through your nose allows the DAD Ayurveda Doctor to inspect the inside of your sinuses.
  • Imaging studies. A CT scan shows a detailed picture of your sinuses and nasal area. It is not usually recommended for uncomplicated acute sinusitis, but imaging studies may help find abnormalities or suspected complications.
  • Nose and sinus samples. Lab tests are usually not necessary to diagnose acute sinusitis. However, when the condition fails to respond to treatment or is getting worse, tissue samples (cultures) from your nose or sinuses can help find the cause, such as a bacterial infection.
  • allergy test. If DAD Ayurveda Doctor suspects that allergies have triggered your acute sinusitis, he or she will recommend an allergy skin test. A skin test is safe and quick and can help detect the allergen that is irritating your nose.

Treatment

Most early cases of acute sinusitis get better on their own. Self-care techniques are usually all that is needed to ease symptoms.

Treatments to relieve symptoms

DAD Ayurveda Doctor may recommend treatments to help relieve sinusitis symptoms, including:

  • Saline nasal spray. Which you spray in your nose several times a day and wash your nasal passages.
  • Nasal corticosteroids. These nasal sprays help prevent inflammation and do not help treat it. Examples include fluticasone (Flonase Allergy Relief, Flonase Sensimist Allergy Relief, others), budesonide (Rhinocort Allergy), mometasone (Nasonex), and beclomethasone (Beconase AQ, Kunasal, others).
  • Decongestant. These medications are available over-the-counter (OTC) and in prescription liquids, tablets, and nasal sprays. Use a nasal decongestant for a few days only for this initial comfort. Otherwise, they can cause your disease to return—severe congestion (rebound congestion).
  • Allergy medicines. If your sinusitis is due to allergies, using allergy medications can help reduce allergy symptoms.
  • OTC pain relievers. such as acetaminophen (Tylenol, others), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) diclofenac or aspirin.

Children or teenagers should avoid taking aspirin. Although aspirin is approved for use in children over the age of 3, children and adolescents recovering from chickenpox or flu-like symptoms should never take aspirin. This is because aspirin has been linked to Reye’s syndrome in children, a rare but potentially life-threatening condition.

Antibiotic Medicines

Antibiotics are not usually needed to treat acute sinusitis, as it is usually caused by a virus, not bacteria. Even if your acute sinusitis is bacterial, it may get better without treatment. DAD Ayurveda doctor may wait and see if your acute sinusitis gets worse before prescribing antibiotics.

There are possible side effects of these allopathic products. These include upset stomach, diarrhea, and allergic skin reactions. Check with a DAD Ayurveda practitioner before taking allopathic or dietary supplements to make sure they are safe and that they will not interact with any medications you may be taking.

Sinusitis Migraine disease

Although DAD Ayurveda doctors prescribe natural remedies instead of antibiotics for severe, progressive, or persistent symptoms, make sure you stop taking them early, even after the full course, even after your symptoms get better. The signs that your symptoms start again are short-lived.

Immunotherapy

If allergies are contributing to your sinusitis, natural remedies DAD Sino-Care (immunotherapy) that help reduce the body’s response to specific allergens may help treat your symptoms.

Lifestyle and Home Remedies

Self-help steps can help relieve sinusitis symptoms:

  • Rest. It will help your body fight the infection and recover faster.
  • Drink fluids. Continue to drink plenty of fluids.
  • Use a hot compress. A warm compress and steam bath on your nose and forehead can help relieve the pressure in your sinuses.
  • Moisten your sinus cavities. Wrap a towel over your head while breathing in the steam from the hot water. Keep the vapor directed towards your face. Or take a hot bath, breathing warm, moist air. This will help ease the pain and help in draining the mucus.
  • Wash your nostrils. Use a specially designed bottle (sinus rinse, others) or neti pot. A home remedy called nasal lavage can help clear your sinuses.
