Sinusitis, also known as sinus infection orrhinosinusitis, is a very common condition where the paranasal sinuses are inflamed,causing congested nose, headache and facial pain.Paranasal sinuses are air cavities in the bones of the skull. There are four pairs ofsinuses located on either side of the head. They are the maxillary, frontal, ethmoid,and sphenoid sinuses. The sinuses are lined with respiratory epitheliumproducing mucus. The mucus drains into the nasal cavity through small openings. Impairedsinus drainage has been associated with inflammation of sinuses. When a sinus is blocked, fluidbuilds up, making it a favorable environment
for bacteria or viruses grow and cause infection.A typical sinusitis symptom is described as a dull pain or constant pressure commonlylocalized to the affected sinus. The pain may worsen when the person bends over or whilelying down. Symptoms often start on one side of the head and spread to the other side.Acute sinusitis may be also be accompanied by thick nasal discharge of yellow greenishcolor. Sinusitis may have different causes. Theseinclude: Allergy: allergens such as pollen, pet danderâ€¦may trigger inflammatory response of the mucosa of the nose and sinuses, resulting in excessmucus production, nasal congestion, sneezing
and itching. Infection: infection usually occurs as a complication of a common cold. Impaired sinusdrainage due to inflammation of nasal mucosa during a cold often leads to infection ofthe sinus itself. Coldlike symptoms plus headache, facial pain or pressure are commoncomplaints. Other conditions that cause blockage ofsinus drainage. These include: structural abnormalities such as deviated nasal septum;formation of nasal polyps. Treatments vary depending on the cause ofsinusitis: For allergy: intranasal corticosteroidsare commonly used.
For viral infection: symptom relief medicationssuch as nasal spray for irrigation and decongestion; other conservative treatment for common coldsuch as rest and drinking plenty of fluid. For bacterial infection: antibiotics maybe prescribed. For recurrent or chronic sinusitis due tostructural abnormalities or nasal polyps, nasal surgery may be recommended to clearup the drainage canal.
How to Get Rid of Smelly Discharge
I need to know how to get rid of smelly discharge. Use deodorant or don't wear sweats while workingout. I mean, down there. If you're wearing that tight lycra while workingout and the sweat builds up around there, you can still get a yeast infection or rashdown there that smells pretty bad. If I were working out that much, I wouldn'tworry about this smell relative to the odor of sweat. I hope you've seen a recently.
I don't think this is like acne so bad youneed to see a dermatologist. If you have an STD, you could have bad smellydischarge. And that's all the more likely if you have sores or bad itching or coloreddischarge. You can have white or grey discharge, I think,and it isn't anything that serious. If you have whitish or grey discharge thatlooks like cottage cheese, you have a yeast infection. Fortunately, the fishy odor goesaway once you treat it. I don't think I've even seen cottage cheese. If you've seen yogurt, you can use that.
Internally or externallyé There are folk cures of putting yogurt upthere, but really, just eat more of it, and if that doesn't work, get an over the counteryeast medication. Once you're cured, the odor will go away. Except I don't smell a fishy odor. That rules out trichomoiasis. That's quite a mouthful. No wonder they callit trich for short. Trich can cause a musty smell too, plus burningand itching.
I've had irritation but don't want to sayit is that. You can have bacterial infections cause amusty or fishy smell too. And unlike an STD, you can get it all by yourself. How do I get rid of ité Have the find out what you have andoffer a treatment for it. I could douche to clean down there and eliminatethe odor. Actually, douching causes the pH down thereto shift in ways that facilitate more bacterial growth, and it doesn't help if there's aninfection or yeast.
So covering up the smell today could makeit worse tomorrow. You can try washing down there several timesa day with antibacterial soap, wear loose cotton underwear and clean thoroughly afteryou pee or poop. I know what leaking pee smells like, and that'snot this. And antibacterial soap can be harsh. So mix baking soda in the bathwater you useor apple cider vinegar in your bath soak, though with the vinegar, you can do that daily. I suppose smelling like pickles is betterthan how I smell now. And the vinegar thing you can say is froma health fad without saying what it is treating.
The other hygiene steps you can take includechanging out pads often and not leaving tampons in too long. I know that can cause bacterial growth ifnot toxic shock syndrome. There are over the counter remedies for yeastand minor bacterial overgrowth, but if those don't work, talk to the . If only because over the counter treatmentsfailing to work prove that I have to.
