Hi. thanks for writing in to HCM
Sinus means a cavity or space that is connected to the surface with a tract (e.g paranasal sinuses like frontal sinus, maxillary sinus).
Infection of the sinus or sinus tract is called sinusitis.

Welcome to the HCM
Complete the relevant antibiotic course.
Steam inhalation regularly.
If intractable Maxillary sinusitis- Antral puncture & Wash may relieve the problem.
Some times frontal sinuses are opened to wash the pus.
Avoid the things which cause soar throat &RTI,
Avoid cold exposure.
Allergic tendencies to be treated.
Hope the query is answered
