Thanks for the query. I understand your concern. Viral sinus infection
in self cured . Usually it causes inflammation of nasal mucus membrane... causing increased or thick nasal secretions.Only rest, drinking lot of water, vitamin C
supplements & at the most decongestant pills over the counter are needful to help natural cure.
Repeated infections are possible when -
- The sinuses are blocked with thick mucus plug
- sinus has nasal polyps
- deviated septum of nose
-There is secondary bacterial infection ( characterized by thick yellow or green nasal discharge
.) chronic head ache.
- Low resistance of patient/ allergies.
* all these symptoms need to be evaluated & supported by needful investigations to pin point the cause with specific treatment ( nasal saline drops/ steroid nasal sprays/ decongestants orally with needful suitable antibiotic./ needful treatment for nasal polyps or deviated septum / high protein vitamin rich diet./ allergy testing & desensitization treatment as per need.
* For all of these you need home care
( taking rest/moisturize your nasal passage with moderate warm water vapor/ rinse nose with saline/ sleep with raised head...along with expert consultation ( ENT specialist
)& specific treatment. Dizziness
& short breath also suggests involvement of ear/bronchitis
.. which should also be treated simultaneously.
