Were you looking for information about Sinusitis (Sinus Infection) Treatment? Sinusitus treatment is a common misspelling of sinusitis treatment.
Depending on the type of sinusitis you have, your healthcare provider will suggest various sinusitis treatment options, including decongestants, antibiotics, pain relievers, medications, and surgery.
Over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription decongestant nose drops and sprays should be used to treat acute sinusitis for only few days. If you use these medications for longer periods, they can lead to even more congestion and swelling of your nasal passages.
If bacteria is the cause of your sinusitis, antibiotics used with a nasal or oral decongestant will usually help. Many cases of acute sinusitis will end without the use of medications.
Many healthcare providers treat chronic sinusitis as an infection. In this case, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics, decongestants, or steroid nasal sprays. Further research is needed to determine the best chronic sinusitis treatment.
