What is sinus?
The sinuses or steam of the nasal openings are filled with air spaces in the skull. They are located behind the forehead, nasal bones, cheeks and eyes.
There are four types:
- Frontal sinuses: above the eyes in the eyebrows. Inflammation can lead to symptoms such as pain over the eye, forehead, headache, and so on.
- Etmoid sinuses: anterior and posterior. Behind the nose bridges and between the eyes. Symptoms can produce pain behind the eyes, sides, upper nose pain and so on.
- Maxillary sinuses: in each cheek bone. Pain over each cheek.
- Spenoid sinuses: behind the ethmoids in the upper nose and behind the eyes. Pain behind the eyes refers to the tip, over mastoid process and the back of the head.
Each of the sinuses opens into the nose for free mucus and air exchange and also joins the nasal passage through a continuous mucus membrane So this helps for continuous pressure maintenance, air filtration, etc. These The sinuses also protect the internal organ of the skull by acting as a shock absorber. They also provide free air circulation and help maintain internal balance. Cold temperatures leave our nose vulnerable to attack and invasion by bacteria and virus.
Definition of sinusitis
Nasal congestion is obstruction of the nasal passages, also known as nasal congestion, nasal congestion, nasal congestion, nasal congestion, or nasal filling Nasal congestion is usually due to swollen nasal membranes from inflammation of the blood vessels.
Sinusitis is any condition of inflammation in the sinuses associated with the nasal cavity. Simple runny nose is defined by unusually large amounts of nasal fluids with or without inflammation and obstruction of nasal breathing. Qatar is a runny nose with thick mucus and white blood cells in response to infection. But when the sinuses become blocked and filled with fluid, the germs can grow and cause infection.
