What is Sinusitis?

Sinusitis refers to inflammation of the sinuses that occurs with a viral, bacterial, or fungal infection. Also, blockage of the sinus opening (ostium) can inhibit normal mucus drainage that may lead to infection and inflammation of the sinus.

Sinusitis symptoms may include:

Facial pain, pressure

Nasal congestion or fullness

Difficulty breathing through the nose

Yellow or green mucus from the nose

Teeth pain

Loss of the sense of smell or taste



Sore throat

Bad breath

Types of Sinusitis

There are two types of sinusitis: acute and chronic. Symptoms of acute sinusitis can last for several days. However, if symptoms occur frequently or persist for more than three months, it may be chronic sinusitis.
