What is Sinusitis?
Sinusitis or sinus infection is the swelling or inflammation of the sinus lining. When the sinus cavities swell and their openings are blocked, they fill with fluid which can allow germs to grow and cause an infection. Most of the tiny sinus openings or ostia, are located deep in the middle nose which makes targeted delivery of cleansing saline and medications very important for effective treatment. Chronic sinusitis occurs when this swelling, inflammation and blockage lasts longer than three months.

Remember to record your symptoms, and the length of time you have been experiencing each, to assist your doctor in creating your care plan.
How to treat Sinusitis?
Nasal Washing or Irrigation with saline, a natural nasal safe decongestant, or using a common over the counter nasal safe medicine can be effective in treating acute sinusitis. Chronic Sinusitis can be treated by speaking to your doctor about an intranasally (in the nose) delivered medicine such as a corticosteroid, antibiotic, or antifungal.
Compounding Pharmacy's can compound a sinus medication specifically for your needs, incorporating soothing ingredients to eliminate dry nose.
Regardless of your treatment choice, delivery to the location of the irritation or infection matters. Trust the NasoNeb® system to deliver your chosen nasal solution where traditional spray pumps or rinse bottles don't.
