What Should I Do If I Suffer From Sinusitis?
I have sinusitis for about a year, I have been taking a sinusitis medication in the form of jelly, and there hasn’t been a good enough change, and for a long time my eyes have not been swollen a bit reddish in the upper area of the eyelids, what should I do? Can sinusitis without surgery disappear?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Sinusitis is an inflammatory condition in the sinus wall. Sinus is a cavity in the head, which serves to lighten the head and is also useful in sound production. Sinus is located behind the forehead bones, behind the cheekbones, both sides of the bridge of the nose and there is also behind the eyes.
Sinus has several types according to the duration of the disease, including:
Acute sinusitis, if it lasts for less than 4 weeks
Subacute sinusitis, if it lasts between 4-12 weeks
Chronic sinusitis, if it lasts more than 12 weeks, for years
Recurrent sinusitis, if it occurs more than equal to 3 times a year
In your condition, if it has been a year, then it enters chronic sinusitis, and must be treated more seriously. This is important because untreated sinusitis can cause complications in the form of loss of sense of smell in a permanent way, inflammation of the lining of the brain, visual disturbances and other infections, for example to the bones.
Therefore, we suggest that you immediately check your condition with the ENT doctor, and if it is conveyed that it must be operated on, then that is indeed the case. We cannot correct the diagnosis and treatment options because we do not check you directly, but if you are in doubt, you have the right to seek a second opinion by checking with another ENT doctor. In essence, the examination must be carried out to get treatment ... So, hopefully answering your questions.
