"Masks" of sinusitis
Sinusitis is acute and chronic. In acute, that is, primary inflammation, the ailment is more pronounced. Chronic sinusitis is less active, but it tortures its owner almost all the year round, then calms down, then again declares itself with renewed vigor.
If you are one of those patients who areLegs of ARVI and do not pay attention to a protracted runny nose, then you can easily get chronic sinusitis. The fact is that bacteria, viruses and fungi that cause colds and flu settle on the nasal mucosa and tonsils, making it difficult to clean the nasal cavity naturally. Delayed outflow of mucus creates additional conditions for the reproduction of bacteria.
If the body is weakened or in a statePermanent stress, sinusitis will not "disturb" even a slight increase in fever with inflammatory diseases of the sinuses of the nose. The disease will pass under the mask of mild ailment against the background of the stuffy nose and then quietly go into a chronic form.

And this is not accidental: as medical practice shows, residents of megacities swelling of the nasal mucosa is most often due to prolonged allergic rhinitis. With frequent relapses of sinusitis and ineffective treatment, nasal endoscopy (examination of the inside of the nose and drainage areas of the sinuses) is prescribed. After the prescription of medications, the medical regimen of therapy should be strictly observed and the treatment should not be discontinued, even if it seems to you that the ailment has surrendered much earlier. Otherwise, the microbes will return again and cause an even greater exacerbation. But it is possible to "agree" with sinusitis, and not only in the doctor's office.
