Sinusitis is inflammation or swelling that occurs on the tissue lining of the nasal passage.
Sinuses are air cavities located in your skull and help in making the breathing function normal. Sinuses’ role is to produce mucus to keep bacterias, viruses, or infections from entering the body through the nasal cavity. Sinusitis usually occurs from infections or viruses present in the air. Sinus infection may result in blockage or congestion in the nose while affecting the quality of breathing. Mild sinusitis mostly gets cured through prescribed medication. However, if the medication does not show any improvement, the ENT specialist may advise a surgical intervention to improve your breathing quality by restoring the air cavities or sinuses.
