Specialty of Otolaryngology / ENT

Sinusitis is a condition characterised by inflammation of the sinuses, cavities that are located behind the forehead, cheeks and eyes. This condition can be caused by an infection (viral or bacterial) or by a fungus and can be classified as acute sinusitis or chronic sinusitis. Symptoms in both cases are the same: pain or pressure in the head, sore throat, stuffy and runny nose, loss of smell, fever, malaise, bad breath and coughing. The difference is that in acute sinusitis symptoms last up to four weeks, while chronic symptoms can last more than three months. Usually sinusitis heals by itself, but patients may be prescribed antibiotics. Sometimes, the patient may require surgery if the symptoms do not go away with treatment.
