Sinusitis is a swelling of the tissue lining the sinuses. Normally, sinuses are filled with air, but when sinuses become blocked and filled with fluid, germs can grow and cause an infection. Conditions that can cause sinus blockage include swelling of the lining of the nose (allergic rhinitis), small growths in the lining of the nose, the common cold, or a shift in the nasal cavity.

There are different types of sinusitis, including: + Acute sinusitis: Cold-like symptoms such as a stuffy, runny nose and facial pain that do not go away after 10-14 days. + Subacute sinusitis: An inflammation lasting four-eight weeks. + Chronic sinusitis: An inflammation lasting eight weeks or longer. + Recurrent sinusitis: Repeated attacks within a year.

Some of the symptoms of acute sinusitis include: + Nasal stuffiness + Nasal discharge + Loss of smell + Facial pressure/pain + Cough + Congestion + Fever + Fatigue + Dental Pain

Some of the symptoms of chronic sinusitis include: (These symptoms last for more than eight weeks) + Facial congestion + Pus in the nasal cavity + Fever + Nasal discharge + A nasal blockage + Headaches + Dental pain

Treatment for sinusitis depends on the severity. MCR American Pharmaceuticals explains that in regards to acute sinusitis, most healthcare providers may recommend treatment with sinus decongestants like the company’s Maxiphen and Maxiphen DM. In addition, MCR American Pharmaceuticals promotes other cold fighting medications that may relieve the symptoms. The medications include Congestinex C, Congestinex PE, Maxifed, Maxifed DMX, Maxifed G, Maxifed DM, Super-Tuss PE, and Super-Tuss PSE.

In regards to chronic sinusitis, MCR American Pharmaceuticals explains that warm moist air may relieve sinus congestion. Also, sinus decongestants and strong nasal decongestants may help, however, they should not be used beyond their recommended use. MCR American Pharmaceuticals suggests patients consult their pharmacist or physician in order to select an appropriate medication.

Sinusitis occurs when the air spaces behind the facial bones swell or become infected. Swelling of the lining produces too much mucus and the excess mucus fills up the sinuses and may block the passageways. Sometimes this trapped mucus can become infected. There are several medications patients should consider, however, with every medication, patients should read the instructions carefully and follow directions.
