Is Paranasal Sinus 3 Dangerous? How Is The Treatment?
Afternoon, my sister just X-rayed her diagnosis of paranasal sinuses (3). Is it dangerous or not? And about what treatment steps are appropriate for this type? Thank you
Hello Tini, Thank you for the question.
Do you mean sinusitis? Sinusitis is inflammation of the sinuses, which are air-filled cavities located under the cheekbones, nose, back of the eye, and forehead. Sinuses function to help moisturize the breathing air and cleanse the air that enters the nose. Sinusitis is generally caused by an infection that can be triggered if someone has nasal polyps, allergic rhinitis, smokers, or frequent swimming. Symptoms experienced by sufferers are blocked nose, colds, headaches, fever, facial pain especially when pressed, olfactory function is reduced, coughing up phlegm, sore throat.
Patients who are proven to have sinusitis will be treated with several treatments that can include cleaning the nose and sinuses by irrigation, decongestants, pain relief drugs, steroids, antibiotics, or immonotherapy. The treatment that will be given by a doctor depends on the results of the doctor's examination and depends on the severity of your condition. Therefore, please follow the advice of the ENT specialist treating you. Feel free to ask your doctor if you still have questions about your condition and the right treatment for you.
If you have an allergy to a certain thing, please avoid the allergic triggers agr does not trigger sinusitis. You can also consume warm drinks or inhale hot steam to help relieve nasal congestion.
Hopefully this information helps you.
