Bacterial sinus infections – A common problem

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 29 million individuals will be affected with sinusitis – approximately 12% of the population or 1 out of every 8 individuals. The impact of sinusitis cannot be underestimated. Time away from work, poor performance at work, the expense of medications, and interruption of home and social life can impact your quality of life. Taking control of your symptoms can be as easy as over-the-counter therapy. Many individuals need a thorough approach to diagnose and treat more complex problems.

There are many causes for sinus inflammation or infection to arise. Sinuses are hollow cavities in our facial bones. They are located behind our cheek, behind our forehead, and between the eyes. If these hollow cavities become obstructed, fluid and infection can start to build up. Symptoms of illness quickly follow, and often will need treatment. For many individuals the common cold, untreated allergy symptoms, or other environmental factor may be the source for the infection to begin. These are just a few of the reasons one may start down a path of recurrent bacterial infection in the sinuses.

Medical Treatment

Whether through over-the-counter therapy or routine prescription medication, your physician will start with a conservative approach to managing your illness. Antibiotics, steroids, and related allergy medications often hold promise. These non-surgical approaches, when aimed at resolving the underlying problem, often resolve the illness swiftly. For those that continue to struggle, additional testing may be recommended. Surgical options may also be a consideration and can provide benefit, even with in-office techniques.

Surgical Treatment

When medications fail to control symptoms, or illness returns too frequently, many individuals find benefit with various surgical options. Many options are available to help manage a variety of persistent symptoms. Learn more about how the Oklahoma Sinus Center can help you by following these surgical links:
