Sinus Infection - Sinusitis
Sinusitis is the medical term for infection of the sinuses. Sinus infection or Sinus inflammation is commonly seen as a continuation of nasal infection and can occur in acute, subacute, chronic or allergic form. Sinusitis can also occur in the front, inside the cheek and behind the nose in the corner of the eye. Most people suffering from Sinus Infection - Sinusitis, know nothing about it. Usually is caused by viral or bacterial infections and allergies.
The sinuses are cavities of the head filled with air, surrounding the nose. These cavities are connected to the nose for exchanging air and secretions (mucus) and are coated with the same mucous membranes covering the inside of the nose. Any obstacle that blocks the flow of secretions between the nose and the sinuses tends to cause Sinus Infection.
A viral infection, bacteria or any foreign substances inhaled allergens such as dust, mold spores, animal fur, flower pollen, cause allergies which can cause swelling of the lining of the nose and sinuses and to preclude flow between the nose and the sinuses.
