Effective Treatment For Sinusitis In Gilroy, CA

Over 37 million people each year have sinusitis, making it one of the most common health problems in America. Sinusitis is more prevalent than heart disease and its symptoms significantly affect people emotionally, functionally and physically. Sinusitis is an inflammation of the sinus lining commonly caused by bacterial, viral or microbial infections. The two main categories of sinusitis are acute (sudden onset) and chronic (occurs frequently or lasts longer than 12 weeks).

Common Sinusitis Symptoms

The main symptoms are a runny nose and pain/pressure around the head and face. You may also have a postnasal drip or discharge. Other common symptoms include:

  • Sinus headache
  • Bad breath
  • Cough with mucus
  • Fever
  • Dentofacial pain
  • Reduced taste/smell

How Do We Treat Sinusitis?

Viral sinus infection often resolves within 10 to 14 days. Remember that viral infections do not respond to antibiotics, which only work against bacterial infections. Dr. Burt will explain things you can do at home to relieve your symptoms, including warm compresses, a humidifier, breathing steam, drinking lots of fluid and using saline nose drops. Home treatments may help prevent a more serious bacterial or fungal infection.
