About sinus infection
A sinus infection (sinusitis) is the inflammation of the tissues lining the sinuses. Sinuses are cavities in the bone structure between your eyes, behind your cheekbones, and in your forehead. These spaces make mucus that helps keep your nose moist and clean. When these sinuses become swollen because of a cold, allergies, polyps, or a deviated septum, this mucus builds up and eventually causes an infection of the sinuses.
Sinus infections can make it difficult to breathe through your nose. You may notice swelling around your eyes and face, as well as throbbing facial discomfort or a headache. Most cases of acute sinusitis heal within 7-10 days on their own unless a bacterial infection develops. Acute sinusitis can usually be cured with simple home remedies, but chronic sinus infections may last several months and require medical treatment.
