Chronic Sinusitis

Sinusitis is described as chronic when it persists for more than 12 weeks despite appropriate treatment. Chronic sinusitis (or chronic rhinosinusitis) is a condition in which the mucous membrane of the sinuses around the nose (paranasal sinuses) become inflamed causing an obstruction of the natural drainage passages of the sinuses. This results in fluid retention within the paranasal sinuses, persistent infection, and a variety of symptoms.


  • Facial pressure that can occur around the eyes and the cheek areas as well as the forehead
  • Nasal congestion resulting in difficulty breathing through the nose
  • A sensation of postnasal drainage
  • Decrease in smell
  • Ear pressure or discomfort may also occur


Medical treatment consists of antibiotics and other medications to decrease inflammation and swelling of the sinus passages. These medications may include:

  • saline irrigations
  • intranasal steroid sprays
  • decongestants
  • antihistamines
  • oral steroids

Sinusitis may exacerbate or worsen symptoms of asthma, bronchitis, and allergic rhinitis.

When medical treatment is not enough to treat the sinusitis episodes, a procedure may be indicated. At Nevada Sinus Relief, Dr. Sikand tailors your treatment to your specific pattern of sinusitis and diagnostic testing results such as nasal endoscopy and in-office CT scanning. The goal in all cases is to relieve sinus obstruction and restore the sinuses to a healthy state.
