Sinusitis is a sinus infection that "affects 1 out of every 7 adults in the United States, with more than 30 million individuals diagnosed each year," according to Medscape. A sinus infection is uncomfortable and you have to speak with your ENT, Dr. Sina Joorabchi of Pembroke Pines, FL, for a proper diagnosis and to stop the infection from spiraling into something more serious, like meningitis.
Sinusitis is the swelling of the tissue lining of sinuses. Instead of breathing in air, fluid and germs block sinuses and cause an infection. Several conditions can cause a sinus blockage like the common cold, allergens, nasal polyps, or even a deviated septum.
Children may also develop a sinus infection if they contract an illness from other kids, bottle drinking while lying on the back or using pacifiers, and smoke in the environment.
A sinus infection should be taken seriously. Speak with Dr. Sina Joorabchi of Pembroke Pines, FL, about getting a proper diagnosis or for other ENT-related issues by calling (954) 438-7171.
