What is a Sinus infection?
A sinus infection (medically called sinusitis or rhinosinusitis) occurs when your nasal cavities become infected, swollen, and inflamed. As a defence mechanism against an irritant like dust, pollen etc., our body secretes body flu cough-cold-flu-like helm and flushes out the foreign body.
The first thing to realize is that all sinus infections are not the same. A sinus infection, a.k.a. sinusitis, can be either a viral or bacterial infection. The term "sinusitis" simply means that there's irritation in your sinuses, which make up the lining around the air spaces between bones that surround your nose.
Ear, nose and throat specialist Raj Sindwani, MD, says the only way to know whether it's a cold or a bacterial infection in the early stages is to swab inside the nose and grow a culture.
Can sinus lead to death?
Rare cases can turn serious
"In rare cases, sinus infections in the rear centre of one's head can spread into the brain. This can lead to life-threatening conditions like meningitis or brain abscess", Dr. Sindwani says.
"Before antibiotics, people would die from sinusitis," he says. But he emphasizes that such complications are unlikely. "In most cases, the bacterial infection goes away, especially if you don't have underlying medical problems", he adds.
