Fall is a forthcoming season for Sinus infections. Sinusitis is the retribution of a long-term cold or allergy, which can
encumber proper nasal drainage. This clogging becomes a breeding floor for infection, which then irritates the sinus
lining to become inflamed, fill with pus and form scarring. There are eight sinuses, or air spaces, in the facial bones
and skull that are positioned behind the eyes, cheekbones, nose, and forehead. Each sinus is linked through a
nasal passage to serve air exchange as well as to drain mucus. Sinuses also impart resonance to our tone when
we speak. Sinusitis if not effectively treated, can advance to ear infections, bronchitis, or pneumonia.




Four types of Sinuses:
Maxillary Sinuses: These are the largest sinuses that are situated beneath the eyes. They are linked to the nasal
passage in a particular position that can make drainage difficult. Untreated cold and allergy can easily distress
these sinuses especially in children, causing pressure below the eyes, pain in the cheeks, gums, teeth and upper
jaw.
Ethmoidal Sinuses: These sinuses are located between the eyes. When irritated these sinuses cause pain
between and behind the eyes, with blockage of nose and sensitivity to light. Diving, swimming or riding in cold wind
may provoke inflammation of these sinuses.
Frontal Sinuses: These sinuses are positioned in the forehead. When inflamed they can get tender and trigger
pain in the forehead with heaviness and puffiness above the eyes particularly in older people.
Sphenoidal Sinuses: These sinuses are placed in the midline of the skull, behind the nose and on swelling can
cause pain all over the head.
