What Treatments Are There for Sinusitis?

There are several different treatments for sinusitis, depending on the cause and severity of the condition. For milder cases of sinusitis, home remedies such as increasing fluid intake, using a humidifier, and taking over-the-counter pain relievers can be effective. However, more severe cases may require antibiotics to clear the infection. In some cases, surgery may be recommended as part of sinusitis treatment to remove blockages or repair damaged tissue.

Do I Have Chronic Sinusitis?

Chronic sinusitis is a condition that causes inflammation of the sinuses, which are the hollow cavities in the bones around the nose. This inflammation can lead to a buildup of mucus, which can cause congestion, pressure, and pain. Sinus surgery is a treatment option for chronic sinusitis that can help to relieve these symptoms such as:

  • Nasal congestion
  • Pain in the forehead, cheeks, and nose that is persistent
  • Fatigue 

What Is the Recovery Like for Sinus Surgery?

Recovery from sinusitis treatment in Boca Raton typically takes 1-2 weeks. During this time, it is important to avoid blowing your nose or exercising strenuously. You may also be asked to use a humidifier to help keep your sinuses moist and to prevent crusting. You will be able to return to work and other normal activities within a week or two. It may take several months, however, before your sinuses are completely healed.

Sinusitis Treatment FAQ

Do I need sinus surgery?

The need for surgery can only be answered by a qualified medical professional. However, certain signs and symptoms may indicate that sinus surgery is necessary. If you have chronic sinus infections that do not respond to medication, or if you have facial pain or pressure that is not relieved by conservative treatments, you may need sinus surgery. Sinus surgery is a safe and effective way to treat chronic sinusitis and can provide lasting relief. If you think you may need sinus surgery, consult with an ENT specialist to discuss your options.

Will non-prescription sprays help my sinusitis?

Suffering from sinusitis can be incredibly frustrating. The constant pressure in your head, the never-ending congestion, and the fatigue that comes along with it can make it hard to get through the day. Though over-the-counter medications can help to lessen some of the symptoms, they don't always do the trick. If you're looking for more relief, you may want to consider getting a prescription from your doctor.
