Vaxa Sinus Formula - for Chronic Sinusitis - 120 CapsulesSinus Infection also called sinusitis is characterized by the inflammation or swelling of the sinuses. In this period, you should experience sinus pains, which are felt around the face and eyes coupled with thick yellow or green mucus. In certain conditions wherein the sinus drainage channels, such as colds, allergies such as hay fever, non-allergic rhinitis, and nasal polyps can be a cause of a sinus infection. The symptoms of sinusitis are also evident with a cold but if there is pain around your face and eyes and the thick nasal discharge continues for more than a week, this must be sinus disease.

Further, a sinus infection can cause a headache or pressure in the eyes, nose, cheek area, or on one side of the head. 
Affected individual may also have a cough, a fever, bad breath, and nasal congestion with thick nasal secretions. Sinus disease is categorized as sudden onset--acute or long-term--chronic, the latter is the most common type. Human skull contains four major pairs of hollow air-filled-cavities called sinuses; which are connected to the space between the nostrils and the nasal passage. Our sinuses help insulate the skull, reduce its weight, and allow the voice to resonate within it. Our sinuses play a very important role in our defense from viruses and germs and bacteria. Our sinuses are covered with a mucous layer and cells that contain tiny hairs on their surfaces (cilia).

The difference between acute sinusitis is that it usually lasts less than eight weeks or occurs no more than three times per year; medications are usually effective against it. Recurring sinusitis or chronic sinusitis however lasts longer than eight weeks or occurs more than four times per year with symptoms usually lasting more than 20 days.

Sinusitis treatment through medical or home methods can be done to make you feel better. The goals of these treatments are the improvement of drainage of mucus, reduce swelling in the sinuses, relieve pain and pressure, clear up any infection, prevent the formation of scar tissue, and avoid permanent damage to the tissues lining the nose and sinuses.

As for the medical treatment, over-the-counter drugs available in pharmacies. Antibiotics, such as amoxicillin kills bacteria; decongestants such as pseudoephedrine hydrochloride reduces the swelling of the mucous membranes in the nose.
