Inflammation of the paranasal sinuses (sinusitis) usually occurs as part of an acute cold. Viruses are the most common cause. The acute inflammation usually subsides after a short time. However, a chronic course of a sinus infection can also occur. Antibiotics are not indicated for viral infection, but only for additional bacterial infection.

Treatment of a sinus infection
Acute sinusitis usually heals on its own and does not require any further treatment in the form of medication. However, the symptoms can be alleviated with homeopathic remedies. If the inflammation occurs more than four times a year without symptom-free intervals or lasts 12 weeks, it is called chronic sinusitis. Drug therapy can usually help those affected. If this is not the case, an operation is carried out to clear the inflamed or blocked sinuses.
