Sinusitis is a condition characterized by inflammation of the sinuses, cavities located behind the forehead, cheeks and eyes. This condition can be caused by an infection (viral or bacterial) or by a fungus and can be divided into acute sinusitis or chronic sinusitis. Symptoms in both cases are the same: pain or pressure in the head, sore throat, stuffy and runny nose, loss of smell, fever, malaise, bad breath and coughing. The difference is that in acute sinusitis symptoms up to four weeks manifested, while chronic symptoms can last more than three months. Usually it sinusitis heals by itself, but may be given antibiotics. Sometimes, the patient may require surgery if the symptoms do not go away with treatment.
