sinus problem can be controlled by eating habits....Reduce the intake of salt.Salt leads to accumulation of fluids in tissues, which worsens the sinus infection.avoid fried foods, starchy foods, white sugar, white flour, rice, macaroni, pies, cakes and candies.Also avoid strong spices and meat. Butter should be used sparingly.Cook your food freshly for each meal. Avoid eating leftovers.Do not eat refrigerated foods.

Actually, we refer to the problem of sinusitis commonly as sinus which is not correct. There are four pairs of paranasal sinuses in us- maxillary, frontal, ethmoidal and sphenoidal. It is not yet clear that why nature provided us these sinuses but the probable causes are-a> Air conditioning of the inspired air, b>To provide resonance to our voice, c>Act as thermal insulators for eyeball and contents of cranium, d>To decrease the weight of skull bones. Inflammation of these paranasal sinuses is called sinusitis. It is of two types-acute and chronic. The most common causes of sinusitis are-viral rhinitis, swimming in contaminated water, dental infections and trauma to the sinus. The predisposing factors are those which obstruct the flow of mucous produced by the sinuses like-nasal packing, deviated nasal septum, hypertrophic turbinates, nasal polypi and neoplasms. The clinical symptoms are fever, malaise, bodyache, headache, pain in jaws, redness and oedema of cheek and nasal discharge with pus. The diagnosis of sinusitis is done by transillumination test, x-rays and CT Scan. One should consult an E.N.T specialist immediately if these symptoms appear. Treatment is both medical and surgical. Medical treatment consists of antimicrobial drugs, nasal decongestant drops, steam inhalation, analgesics and hot fomentation. Surgical treatment consists of antral lavage, trephination, intranasal antrostomy and caldwell-luc operation, whichever found suitable by the E.N.T specialist.

There are four sinuses in the body namely the maxillary, ethmoid, frontal and sphenoid. The more sinus that gets infected is the maxillary sinus then the ethmoid and the others. The major pathology behind the sinus infection is the defect in the drainage of the mucosal secretions or the excessive secretions. The defect in the drainage is due to the blockage of the sinus ostium by the hypertrophic middle turbinate or other problems such as polyps, tumor masses or deviated nasal septum. Avoid the allergic problems by taking antihistamines, nasal decongestants and steroids.

Sinus is in common tongue.But medically it is called as sinusitis.It is the inflamation of any one of the sinus(frontal/maxillary/ethmoidal) in the facial region.It occurs when the fluid accumilates in sinus and fails to drain out resulting in infections and inflamation of sinus.It may be acute or chronic.To control sinusitis avoid allergens to which a person is allergic. Use appropriate anti histamines and antibiotics.If there is any deviation in nasal bone get it corrected. Thank You.
