Sinus infection and its symptoms

Sinusitis is the inflammation of the sinuses and can lead to a variety of unpleasant symptoms, such as headaches or blocked noses.

In our skull are located a number of cavities lined with mucusa. Their main task is to warm up the air that we breath through the nose. Mucus, dust and bacteria are discarded by the cilia to the nasal cavity as if on a conveyor belt. 

When we have nasal congestion, the mucous membranes in the nose cavity swell and the connection between the paranasal sinus and the nasal cavity can become blocked. The bacteria, find themselves trapped in warm and humid rooms, where can then freely multiply, which is why a sinus infection may develop in the form of a maxillary sinus or a sinusitis.
