Better Ways to Treat Adult Chronic Sinusitis
The Internet is a great resource in many ways. Besides mirroring the totality of human knowledge, it can also help individuals find smarter, less invasive medical treatments when doctors become overly aggressive.
But not every home and folk remedy is created equal, and sometimes the best treatments for sinus symptoms are also the most conventional. Consider this recent review of treatment options for adult chronic sinusitis. Researchers surveyed some of the most common treatments for this disorder.
Irrigation works fine for the first few weeks, and steroids mixed with antibiotics may be effective for patients who present with nasal polyps. This is a well-considered and conservative approach that I endorse, with the one caveat that even these escalating measures may not finally do the trick. If problems persist past the point of exhausting these interventions, then sinus surgery is often the best way forward.
