Sinusitis is an inflammation of the nasal sinuses that accompanies upper respiratory infection. More than 50% of all cases of sinusitis are caused by bacteria. The sinuses affected by this infection include those above the eyes, inside each cheekbone, behind the bridge of the nose and in the upper nose. It may be a complication of an upper respiratory infection, dental infection, allergy, a change in atmosphere, as in air travel or underwater swimming, or a defect of the nose. With swelling of nasal mucus membranes the openings from sinuses to the nose may be blocked, causing pressure, pain, headache, fever, and local tenderness. Complications include spread of infection to bone, brain, or meninges. Symptoms include headache, blocked nose with a greenish infected discharge, a feeling of heaviness and pain inside the head and face and possibly, disturbance of sleep. Depending upon the location of the affected sinus, there may be eye pain and inflammation. Sinus-I contains ingredients that are effective in the treatment of sinusitis.

Avoiding exposure to cigarette smoke, identifying and treating allergies, and avoiding deep dives in swimming pools may help prevent sinus infections. Inhaling steam, regularly, will help relieve the drainage secretion. The body requires plenty of liquids, to increase its moisture levels, and rest and relaxation. Drink a lot of fluids, such as water, vitamin-C rich fruit drinks etc. Avoid drinks that contain caffeine, such as, coffee, tea, cola and other fizzy drinks as these are diuretics, which could cause further dehydration. Eat healthy food, such as fruits and vegetables. Don't drink iced drinks (including iced tea and sodas), they aggravate sinus problems. Avoid anxiety and depression, and get plenty of rest. Avoid dairy products, which can increase mucus. Exercise outdoors to increase your circulation and clear sinus passages. Keep the room temperature comfortably warm and open the bedroom window a little so fresh air can circulate.
