Edema of the sinuses of the nose

The entire spectrum of inflammatory diseases, localized in the paranasal sinuses, has one common name - sinusitis. A person has several similar sinuses:

Any pathological process in the nasal cavity,accompanied by inflammation and swelling of the mucous membrane, provokes inflammation and swelling and in the sinuses. In turn, the swelling of the nasal mucosa helps close the hole, due to which one or another sinus communicates with the nasal cavity. This causes accumulation inside the sinus of mucus, which exerts pressure on its walls, or the occurrence of a pressing vacuum. Either way, the patient experiences pain and discomfort. The root cause of sinusitis is always an infection (viral or bacterial).

  • pain localized in the head and forehead, teeth, cheekbones, eyes, or cheeks;
  • feeling of raspiraniya in these areas;
  • exacerbation of the sensitivity of a part of the face;
  • redness of the skin of the face or any part of it;

  • etmoiditis - inflammation of the sinus - oftenis accompanied by the involvement of the eye and eyelid tissues in the pathological process. The pain is localized in the interocular region. If the inflammation spreads to the tissues of the nose, then loss of smell, a swelling of the nose and its painfulness when touching;
  • inflammation of the sphenoidal sinus - a characteristic pain in the neck, ears and headaches. Specific secretions can irritate the throat, causing laryngitis.
