Inflammation of the sinuses is known as sinusitis, and occurs due to an infection from a virus, bacteria, or fungus. There are two types of sinusitis – acute and chronic. Acute sinusitis is caused by bacteria growing in the sinuses and lasts for around 4 weeks. Chronic sinusitis is caused by bacteria or fungus, and the inflammation and swelling last for longer than 3 months.
Symptoms: Symptoms of sinusitis usually happen after a cold that hasn’t gotten better or worsened after a 5-7 day period. These include coughing, fatigue, fever, headaches, nasal stuffiness, sore throat, postnasal drip, bad breath, and loss of smell.
