Dr. Frank Brettschneider: An Overview of Sinusitis Symptoms and Treatments

  1. 1. Dr. Frank Brettschneider: An Overview of Sinusitis Symptoms and Treatments
  2. 2.  Possessing decades of professional experience, Dr. Frank Brettschneider treats patients through Port Huron ENT. Often, Dr. Frank Brettschneider treats individuals suffering with sinusitis, an infection or inflammation of the sinuses. Normally, sinuses produce mucus, which then drains to the nose. If the mucus passage becomes blocked, the sinuses can become infected resulting in pain and discomfort. An acute infection usually lasts a few weeks. If it is chronic, it can be present for a longer time.
  3. 3.  Sinusitis often begins as a cold, but allergens, pollutants, and other nose problems can also produce sinusitis. The most common symptoms include cough and congestion, fever, headache, and feelings of pressure behind the eyes. Patients may also experience facial tenderness, general weakness, a sore throat, or a postnasal drip.
  4. 4.  Most often, physicians treat sinusitis with antibiotics and other medications that manage congestion and pain. Some may recommend that patients use saline nasal sprays, vaporizers, or heating pads to alleviate discomfort. If medications fail to address the problem, physicians can resort to surgery that improves sinus drainage and prevents further blockage. Another option is a Balloon Sinuplasty, which dilates the sinus passages to encourage normal drainage.
