Sinusitus Definition: Sinusitis is an inflammation, or swelling, of the tissue lining the sinuses. Normally, sinuses are filled with air, but when sinuses become blocked and filled with fluid, germs (bacteria, viruses, and fungi) can grow and cause an infection.
Symptoms :Postnasal drip Discolored nasal discharge (greenish in color) Nasal stuffiness or congestion Tenderness of the face (particularly under the eyes or at the bridge of the nose) Frontal headaches Pain in the teeth Coughing Fever Fatigue Bad breath
The word 'prevalence' of Sinusitis usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Sinusitis at any given time (i.e. people with Sinusitis). The term 'incidence' of Sinusitis means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Sinusitis diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Sinusitis). Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence. For more information see about prevalence and incidence statistics.
Treatment: Antibiotics, Nasal decongestant ,sprays, Antihistamines, combination of Nasal,decongestants and antihistamines, Topical nasal ,corticosteroids, Nasal saline washes
