Were you looking for information on Chronic Sinusitis? Chronicsinusitis is a common misspelling of chronic sinusitis.
An inflammatory condition, chronic sinusitis can affect anyone, regardless of gender or age. It may be diagnosed when inflammation of the paranasal sinuses has occurred for more than 12 weeks, despite treatment. Possible symptoms include postnasal drip, facial pressure, and nasal congestion.
In the past, treatment for this condition typically involved long periods of antibiotics. However, further research has shown that, in most cases, chronic sinusitis is caused by inflammation rather than bacteria (antibiotics may still be called for in some cases). Treatment options include nasal irrigation, medications, and/or surgery.
Because most cases cannot be cured, treatment for chronic sinusitis focuses on decreasing symptoms and improving quality of life.
