Sinus infections come in various ways with different medications, causes and symptoms. There are various kinds of sinus infections which are; acute, recurrent, chronic and sub-acute. A recurrent sinus infection is comprised of many other attacks which come on and off within an year. An acute sinus infection which is an infection that lasts for about four weeks or less. A sub acute infection is a symptom of an untreated acute sinus infection lasting from four to eight weeks. On the other hand a chronic sinus infection also known as Rhinosinusitis lasts for more than a month.
Recent findings are of the stand that the bacterial infections are not the reason behind chronic sinus infection thus rendering the antibiotics remedies futile in terms of effectiveness. Therefore, findings indicate that fungus and molds are the main causative agent of the chronic sinusitis. What actually happens is that, when the small particles of mold are inhaled they cause the formation of tiny pits along sinuses membranes. In the end, the pits trap the mucous hindering drainage thus the causing the stagnating mucus gets infected cause nasal polyps. After the formation of the nasal polyps the nasal passage becomes obstructed causing further formation of the polyps. In other words, the chronic sinus infection becomes a vicious cycle. The chronic sinus infection is only as result of exposure to poor ventilation in houses and working environments. If this can be controlled then it there will be fewer case of rhinosinusitis and yet the condition is only worsened when the acute sinus infection is treated accordingly since it is stagnating mucus that results to this condition.
Some of the remedies to chronic sinus infection involve proper air ventilation to the rooms. At times some of these remedies will involve the removal of the fungal molds which have reported a 93% success rate. At the same time, one can get prescriptions drugs as a form of medication to chronic sinusitis since the other antibiotics may not be as effective. In other words, should one be diagnosed with a chronic sinus infection it is not completely impossible to eliminate the disease the reason being that there are various interventions in the medical field all aiming at eliminating the symptoms as well as controlling them. The latest medical interventions used to eliminate the chronic sinus infection are all rounded treatments and then followed by the final removal of the molds inside the nasal passage and increasing drainage of the clogged nostril assists in reducing polyps.
