What is sinusitis?

Acute sinusitis (acute rhinosinusitis) causes inflammation of the cavities that surround the nasal passages (sinuses). This hinders drainage and causes accumulation of mucous.

In acute sinusitis, you may feel short of breath through your nose, your face can swell as well as the area around your eyes. You may also experience a throbbing facial and head pain.

Acute sinusitis is mostly due to the common cold. Unless a bacterial infection develops, the resolution of most cases takes between 7-10 days.

Sinusitis that lasts more than 12 weeks despite medical treatment is called “chronic sinusitis”.

Nutritional recommendations and general healthy habits for the maintenance of a good state of health

  • Do not open the windows at night. This will prevent pollen from entering the house. Remember to ventilate well, especially when dust is cleaned.
  • Minimize your activity as much as possible in the morning because pollen is usually emitted between 5 and 10 o’clock.
  • Keep the car windows closed when traveling.
  • Try to be indoors when the pollen count is high.
  • Take your vacation during the peak period of the pollen season. If possible, choose coastal areas, because they have lower pollen rates.
  • Do not cut the grass or approach freshly cut fields. This activity shakes the pollen.
  • If possible, do not hang sheets or clothing outdoors. Pollen can accumulate in them.
  • Limit contact, intake or respiration of allergens to the maximum.
  • Avoid excessive hygiene and contact with toxins that have been linked to a higher prevalence of allergies (alter the protective barrier of the skin and pH).
  • Prioritizes the use of healthy soaps and hygiene methods and respectful with the skin barrier.
