Morning, I want to ask what to do when suffering from chronic rhinosinusitis? After 2 times seeing a different doctor but there was no result, 3 months ago I just found out if I had this sinusitis from the results of the photo. And now I’ve had the flu twice with a distance of less than a month. Is this a serious problem? thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Chronic sinusitis is a condition when the sinus cavity that lies behind the facial bones becomes inflamed for a period of more than 3-4 months, or has a recurrence up to 3-4 times a year. This condition is not necessarily dangerous, but that does not mean it does not need to be addressed, because the complications can be fatal.
Triggers for this condition are very diverse, including:
Fungal infections. Dental infection. Nasal injury. Enlarged adenoid gland. The habit of smoking or too much inhaling cigarette smoke. Diving and swimming activities. The presence of foreign matter trapped inside the nose. Nasal polyps, which are tissues that grow and form masses in the nose. Crooked nose. Allergies Genetic disorders Other conditions, such as a weakened immune system
Regarding your condition, the handling of this condition also varies, ranging from drug consumption, the use of nasal washers, injections, to surgery if other treatments are not successful. Our advice, you should try to check yourself to another ENT doctor first to make sure with a second opinion, and tell your medical history so far. If you win the same recommendation, that it does not need surgery and enough to be treated normally, then that's the best for you.
Meanwhile, the important thing is to maintain your body's endurance by getting enough rest, consumption of warm food and drinks, avoid smoking, dust and pollution, bathing and soaking in warm water, and taking medication regularly. So, hopefully answering your question.
