Pressure. Headache. Congestion.
Nasal Drainage. Sore Throat. Cough.
You know all the symptoms. You’ve been suffering for months, or even years. Painful sinus swelling is known as sinusitis, and it can be a persistent, chronic condition.
When swelling occurs, the sinuses are blocked, preventing drainage, which can lead to viruses, bacteria and fungus growth inside the sinus cavities.

Acute sinusitis symptoms endure for 10 to 12 days and resolve in four weeks or less.
When symptoms persist beyond 3 months, this is known as chronic sinusitis. Symptoms can include persistent nasal discharge, post nasal drip, coughing, puffy eyes upon waking, and bad breath.
When you experience four or more episodes of sinusitis in a single year, you are suffering from recurrent acute sinusitis. You are trapped in a cycle of outbreaks followed by periods of relief, over and over.
