Sphenoid Sinusitis Emedicine - Sinusitis Treatment - Help is on the Way
Quote
Mayo Clinic researchers have made great strides in recent years regarding sinusitis treatment and have come up with a new therapy for chronic sufferers called topical antifungal therapy.  This particular sinusitis due to colds is still new and is not widely practiced.  This author, a sinusitis sufferer of long standing with two painful operations under his belt, has been in contact with one of the Mayo Clinic research physicians.  I was pointed to several papers and articles describing the research completed thus far, the theory behind the research, and the resulting therapy.

Simple and general terms, the Mayo Clinic research showed that some people (i.e., chronic sinusitis sufferers), have a harmful immune reaction to fungi that others do not experience.  The research demonstrated that fungi are present in the air and show up in the nasal mucus of just about everyone.  In the noses of chronic sinus sufferers, it showed that certain types of white blood cells will attack the fungi that are present.  In doing so these cells create a compound that damages nasal membranes.  Once damaged, bacteria can easily enter and cause pain, inflammation and infection.  Conventional sinusitis treatment often includes antibiotics to attack the bacteria.  This new sinusitis treatment aims to attack the fungi instead, thus avoiding the nasal membrane damage in the first place.  One drawback is that it is not easy to determine if a patient is someone whose white blood cells attack fungi in the nose or not.  It is also not known why this white blood cell reaction occurs in some people and not in others. There are no boundaries on countries for one to access information about Chronic Sinus through the Internet. All one has to do is to surf, and then the required matter is availed!

Topical Antifungal Therapy is a New Form of Sinusitis Treatment
It takes time for a new approach to become accepted in the medical community at large.  I asked the Mayo research physician if he knew of a colleague in the Denver area, where I reside, who was utilizing this approach.  He responded that he didn't know anyone there, but gave me two names of physicians in Texas, which I also asked about.  So it is obvious that this approach to sinusitis treatment is not yet mainstream therapy, but it does have momentum.  For people who have received sinusitis treatment which has not improved their suffering, more details regarding this and other sinus related subjects can be found at the web site in the resource box for this article. You actually learn more about Sinus Treatment only with more reading on matters pertaining to it. So the more articles you read like this, the more you learn about Sinus Treatment.

Antifungals such as Amphotericin B and Itraconazole are used in this sinusitis treatment regimen.  These have already been approved by the FDA for other uses, and they can be mixed by a compounding pharmacy such as Anazao to make the topical solution needed for this new therapy.  Amphotericin B, for example, was only available in my local pharmacy as an injection medication.  The pharmacist was not aware that it is sometimes reformulated as a topical spray for sinusitis treatment.  Patients spray the antifungal into their nostrils daily.  About 75% of the chronic sinus sufferers in one of the Mayo Clinic studies saw significant improvement in their conditions following this regimen.

Also contacted Accentia, the biopharmaceutical company who has obtained a license from the Mayo Foundation to produce and market medications based on the Mayo Clinic research.  They informed me that they plan to market a product based on Amphotericin B, which will have the brand name SinuNase.  They will start clinical trials soon, and I submitted my name as a possible participant.  Apparently I would be a good candidate since I've had sinus surgeries that didn't cure my problems. You must have searched high and low for some matter for Sinusitis, isn't it? That is the main reason we compiled this article for you to get that required matter!

  • After years of having sinusitis, are you still having trouble identifying what kind of sinusitis you have?
  • Identifying what kind of sinusitis you have is important for you to apply the right treatment.
Generally, Sinusitis is the Inflammation of the Lining of One or More of the Sinuses
Thus, in medical terms, sinusitis is classified according to the inflamed sinuses and its involved side. Be aware that most people, including you, have four sets of sinuses: Maxillary, ethmoid, frontal and sphenoid. Clear the sinuses is represented on the right and left side of the head. :)

Having Acute Sinus Infection May Leave You Feeling Ear Blockage
It may also lead to swelling of the glands, known as lymph nodes in the neck.   Chronic sinusitis is a persistent disease of more than eight weeks' duration, or more than four episodes of infection per year. This kind of sinus infection may precede acute sinusitis that failed to clear completely with treatment. This may be felt by having postnasal drip with thick mucus in the back of the nose or throat. Another common symptom is nasal congestion or blockage that may extend to the Eustachian tubes resulting to ear fullness. People with chronic sinusitis may also feel being run-down and fatigued. It was our decision to write so much on Sinusitis Causes after finding out that there is still so much to learn on Sinusitis Causes. :D.

About the author: Kay Zetkin is the author name used by Lala C. Ballatan. She discovered the pleasure of writing through her daily journals as a teen-ager. It may take some time to comprehend the matter on Acute Sinus Infection that we have listed here. However, it is only through it's complete comprehension would you get the right picture of Acute Sinus Infection.

  • Maxillary sinusitis causes pain in the mid-face or below the eyes, cheek or upper teeth, almost like you're having a toothache.
  • Ethmoid sinus infection triggers pain between the eyes, near the bridge of the nose.
  • The pain may also become worse with eyeglasses on.
  • Inflammation in the frontal sinuses causes severe forehead pain.
  • Sphenoid sinusitis is usually identified by deep-seated pain behind the eyes, at the top of the head or nape of the neck.
Acute Sinusitis Lasts Less Than Six to Eight Weeks or Occurs Less Than Four Times a Year
This kind of sinusitis is often preceded by a cold. Once your symptoms last longer than ten to fourteen days, you may already be developing an acute sinus infection, especially if you are feeling facial pain or headache already. During the early stages of acute sinusitis, there is nasal blockage and congestion, excessive mucus in the nose and throat and sneezing. Some may feel malaise and fatigue and fever. Mucus may become thicker and discolored. Throat discomfort and occasional hoarseness may also be experienced due to postnasal drip. Coughing from the postnasal drainage worsen in the morning and at night.

Still, Any Number of Your Sinuses can be Inflamed At One Time
Pansinusitis means that all sinuses are infected.   Another way of classifying sinusitis is by duration and frequency of attacks. There are two kinds of sinusitis depending on the duration and frequency of attacks: acute sinusitis and chronic sinusitis.
