Allergic sinusitis is an inflammation of the mucous membranes of the nasal sinuses and nose due to allergens. The sinuses are cavities in the skull, located in the forehead, cheeks and between and behind the eyes. They are connected to the nose by small ducts that are barely larger than a pinhead. Inflammation even mild mucosal block the tunnels, which causes include pain in the face. In addition, when the sinuses are blocked, they are not broken and bacteria tend to grow more easily.
Allergy: a risk factor for inflammation of the sinus mucosa
The allergy can cause chronic inflammation of the sinuses and thus promote the secretion of mucus. As stated previously, this inflammation promotes the development of infectious agent which increases the chances of developing secondary bacterial sinusitis.
Many allergens promote sinus mucosal inflammation. There is of course the pollen, but also pollution. Factors may increase the effects of allergy and smoking (which may lead to irritation of the mucous membranes) or have a defect such as a deviated septum (which prevents proper ventilation of the sinus cavities) are to be factors worsening of allergic sinusitis.
To treat a sinus inflammation due to an allergic, it should address the allergies themselves. Use desensitization may be helpful for the people more sensitive to allergens.
For less sensitive, it is enough to wait so that the sinus inflammation resolves it. To do this, use a nasal dilator may be appropriate. Promoting ventilation of the sinuses, nasal dilator prevents secondary bacterial sinusitis.
