How to Cure Severe Sinusitis in 3 Effective Ways

By:   |   Jul 08, 2018   |   Views: 15   |   Comments: 0

While fewer than half of all sinusitis cases in the United States require aggressive treatments, the rest often calls for cure for the following symptoms:

           Nasal congestion that causes difficulty breathing

           Swelling, tenderness, pain and pressure around the areas where the sinuses are located

           Mucus drainage with thick, greenish or yellowish discharge

           Cough that gets worse at night

           Halitosis or bad breath

           Sore throat

           Ear pain

           Malaise, irritability, fatigue, and depression


           Headaches, tooth discomfort, and aching that radiates from the roof of the mouth and upper jaw

Severe cases of sinusitis such as those that involve the formation of cancers often present symptoms that include persistent nosebleeds, bulging of the areas where the cancers have developed particularly in the nose, cheeks, and eyes, problems with the upper teeth and roof of the mouth such as bleeding and excessive pain, and changes in vision.

If you present any of these symptoms, you may benefit from this guide on how to cure severe sinusitis in 3 ways.

For Eliminating the Bacteria That Have Caused Severe Sinus Infection

           Use antibiotics

Antibiotic is prescribed to most patients of sinusitis. But for those suffering from severe sinus infection, a regimen of broad-spectrum antibiotics which eliminates a wider range of bacteria, is necessary. Most patients benefit from extended period of antibiotic use.

Severe sinusitis requires an initial round of antibiotics that can cover at least 21 days of treatment. If the symptoms do not improve, your doctor will recommend a prolonged regimen of up to several months, with a minimum coverage of 6 weeks.

For patients who do not respond well to traditional methods of administering antibiotics, other methods are available such as nebulized antibiotics and IV antibiotics.

For Temporary Relief from Symptoms of Severe Sinusitis

           Use corticosteroid nasal sprays and other nasal sprays

Although nasal sprays are not recommended for long-term use, management of severe sinusitis often requires these products. Ask your doctor about your nasal spray options.

           Use nasal decongestants.

Nasal decongestants are sprays that help open the nasal passages by reducing swelling and inflammation, eventually promoting better mucus drainage.

           Use prescription inhalers.

These are different from other habit-forming sprays. Prescription inhalers aid the body in recuperating from damaged sinus membranes.

           Use nasal washes.

Unlike other decongestants, nasal washes may be used on a daily basis. These wash away debris and other materials trapped in your sinuses. You may buy nasal wash solutions from drug stores or you may create your own solution at home.

           Use expectorants.

Expectorants are a type of medicine that thins the mucus, making it easier for your body to drain it.

           Follow a comprehensive and alternative medicine regimen.

Plenty of home remedies and alternative methods are relied on for how to cure severe sinusitis. These generally require the use of herbs, spices, and fresh fruits and vegetables.

For Permanent Cure:

Surgery is recommended to get rid of severe sinusitis, if abovementioned options do not work. A host of surgical options are available to you, depending on your symptoms. These include FESS or Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery, the most popular option, and Image Guided Surgery and Caldwell Luc Operation.
