Sinus InfectionWe have all suffered from this at least once in our lives. Sinus infection has been part of many peoples life for many years, all around the world, and it is become part of people lives and just simply never returned after coming for the first time. It is a very strange occurrence, itching nose, red eyes that you just feel like sticking a fork in, blocked nose, runny nose and stuffy head all at the same time, these are only a few symptoms that overcome only some people.
Defined thus, sinusitis or sinus infection is the inflammation of nasal passages and sinuses. A sinus infection may cause eye pressure, blocked nose, headaches, and many other symptoms. If you have sinusitis you might also contract a cold, a fever, a cough, bad breath, nasal congestion with really thick mucus.
As said before you can get a sinus infection or sinusitis as a once off infection, that will last about a week and can be successfully treated, or you can get sinusitis or a sinus infection of a long term basis, which also can be very successfully treated, and the best thing is that you can keep it under raps with the right treatment and medication.
We all know that getting contracting or having sinusitis or a sinus infection can really get in the way of our day to day lives. Think about a young child, looking for his new sporting career at school, and every so often he or she has to stay at home because he has a thick head, a blocked nose, really red itching eyes and symptoms of that nature. It is really not a good site but the good news is that it is not catching, so you can not spread it from one person to another.
So if you think you have any of the above either on a regular basis or at the moment then you should contact you personal or closest doctor right away, because there is no need to let this take away from you day to day fun, at all.
