Chronic sinusitis can be caused by an infection, growths in the sinuses (nasal polyps) or by a deviated septum. Signs and symptoms may include nasal obstruction or congestion that causes difficulty breathing through your nose, and pain and swelling around your eyes, cheeks, nose or forehead.
Moreover, can you have sinus pressure without nasal congestion?
Additionally, some patients may have both allergies and sinusitis. Headaches: “Sinus headache” is a common term, but can be misleading. Facial pain/pressure or headache that occurs without nasal congestion or discolored drainage is only rarely associated with true sinusitis.
Can you treat chronic sinusitis?
The role of bacteria in the pathogenesis of chronic sinusitis remains debatable; however, an early diagnosis and intensive treatment with oral antibiotics, topical nasal steroids, decongestants, and saline nasal sprays results in symptom relief in a significant number of patients, many of whom can be cured.
