Sinusitis Info

Sinusitis is a common condition (alternatively rhinosinusitis) refers to an inflammation of the mucous membranes that line the paranasal sinuses. It can manifest itself due to infection, allergy, or autoimmune issues. Most cases of sinusitis are due to a viral infection and symptoms can take up to ten days to subside.

Acute sinusitis begins with a viral infection (usually) in the upper respiratory tract infection. Sometimes the infection happens to be of bacterial origin, the most common microbial agents are Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, and Moraxella catarrhalis. 

Until recently, Haemophilus influenzae was the most common bacterial agent to cause sinus infections. Interestingly enough, Haemophilus was the first free living organism to have its entire genome mapped.

Other sinusitis-causing bacteria include Staphylococcus aureus and other streptococci species, anaerobic bacteria and, less commonly, gram negative bacteria (Helicobacter, Salmonella, Shigella). 

Viral sinusitis typically lasts for up to 10 days, whereas bacterial sinusitis is more persistent. Viral sinusitis can sometimes result in bacterial sinusitis. It appears that the secondary bacterial infection has nasal irritation from nose blowing as its lead cause. 

So yes, try and hold off on the nose-blowing once you feel symptoms.

There are natural health remedies available that may help alleviate the symptoms of sinusistis.

    Every year I get slammed by hayfever, affecting my eyes severely. I've been taking Solgar Quercetin daily for a couple of months but in last few days I've had severe hayfever symptoms and I'm back on antihistamines and medicated eye drops. The Quercetin may have held my hayfever at bay but it's not effective now.

    Definitely shortens the length of illness. Have managed not to get ill when others are, by taking as soon as the bugs start going around.Earthy taste but not bad, especially if you know you are not going to get sick.

    And Health post - great service as always.

  • Solgar Quercetin Complex for Allergy

    star

    A friend suggested I try these for a persistent cough that I'm pretty sure is due to some sort of allergy but haven't figured out what.
    She said it helped her.
    Nothing to lose so been taking for 3 months now. Definitely not coughing anywhere near as much but hasn't cured completely.
    Worthwhile taking these to help though.
