Inflammation of the nasal passages around our nose and eye brows owing to certain reasons is called chronic sinusitis. Mucous builds up in the passages obstructing the drainage system. As a result, the patient develops breathing problems. The area surrounding the nose and eyebrows appear swollen. The inflammation continues for several weeks until proper treatments are administered. Other symptoms are likely to be:
• Thick mucus discharge from nose
• Pain and tenderness around eyes and nose.
• Unable to smell and taste
• Pain in the ear and upper jaw
• Sore throat
• Mild fever
This is generally caused due to an infection, growth of nasal polyps or deviated nasal septum. Chronic sinusitis can affect children, young and middle-aged adults.
