 purulent sinusitis
 The risk of inflammation in the maxillary sinus associated with infectious diseases. Most often purulent sinusitis is the result of colds, which was not recovered. For colds should be taken seriously, to follow the doctor's advice and not to self-medicate. Particular attention should be paid to the treatment of viral diseases, since they can cause purulent inflammation.

The negative effects of the common cold

Quite often faced with a situation where the common cold people carry on their feet, not doing the right treatment. Such frivolous approach may have the most negative consequences. It is not necessary to start the treatment of the common cold alone, without appropriate professional advice. If the cold has not been cured, then after a short period of time we may expect a clinic sinusitis. It is especially dangerous at the time of colds continue to work actively and do not pay due attention to the treatment. This approach to the treatment of the common cold in most cases the natural end complications.

The cause of purulent sinusitis are microorganisms which cause inflammatory changes .  Infection be inhaled, and then through the nasal cavity in the sinuses .  Within the cavity created optimal conditions for the growth of microbial flora .  There is a stagnation of the contents of the sinus cavity, as full violated outflow .  The mucous sinuses swells, so the hole through which communicates with sinus nasal cavity is sealed .  In the absence of the normal drainage function when there is no communication between the two cavities and the access of oxygen, bacteria begin to grow actively .  Ultimately, it is the cause of purulent sinusitis .  Under normal circumstances, the air contained in the sinuses, which is necessary for the process of ventilation, so in violation of the natural process of pathogens will exhibit their pathogenic activity .  On the basis of microbiological studies have shown that most purulent inflammation causes streptococcal or staphylococcal infection .  They may also be found other microorganisms such as fungi or viruses .  Abnormal discharge, which is in the bosom contains a certain kind of agent, aseptic form of purulent sinusitis not found .

Inflammation in the sinuses accompanied by formation of pus strikes the entire surface of the mucosa. With the progression of the disease the inflammatory process may spread to the periosteum and bone. Such complications occur in severe cases of flow in the event of inadequate treatment and its inefficiency.

Required preventive measures

Patients who have had purulent sinusitis, exacerbation risk in the event of favorable conditions (for example, after hypothermia) .  If you do not deal with the preventive treatment, it becomes chronic sinusitis and exacerbations become frequent .  Purulent inflammation of the maxillary sinus affects the state of the mucous membrane, which becomes most vulnerable to the impact of any adverse factors .  One of these adverse factors is the dry air in the room .  The mucous membrane of the respiratory tract and sinuses in such conditions will be dry .  The epithelium that covers the mucous membrane loses its ability to fully perform drainage function, because in dry air ciliary epithelial cells stick together .  The mucous sinuses in low humidity loses its ability to physiological process of self-purification of the cavity, so it will facilitate the accession of the infection and the development of inflammation .  It is necessary to humidify the air in the room, especially the air in the bedroom .  If you do not already have special devices for humidifying the air, you can do with improvised means .  The easiest way is to place a small indoor water tank to water is evaporated .  It is recommended to take a shower more often, especially in the summer time .  After purulent sinusitis for prevention should be inhaled .  You can use herbal remedies that have medicinal properties .  If this is not possible, you can breathe easy with water vapor over a container of water (above the kettle or saucepan) .  This will facilitate hydration of the mucosa, restoration of its function to remove harmful contaminants or bacteria .

An effective preventive measure is a massage. It is to massage the area where the projected sinuses. There is increased blood flow in the very sinus congestion are eliminated. The sinus cavities will not collect the content, there is self-cleaning. Massage is also more warm air, the thermal effect of a positive effect on air exchange between the nasal cavity and sinuses.

Purulent inflammation of the sinuses breaks ventilation, so exercise should be carried out to improve the ventilation capacity. It helps receptions on the active retraction of the nose air. The method consists in that after an active effect drawing air creates a negative pressure in the nasal cavity. Due to the pressure difference from the stagnant air sinus cavity will flow into the nasal cavity, and after the termination of the procedure have fresh air, too, will go into the sinus due to the difference in pressure. There is ventilation, which prevents the development of stagnation. This method is both preventive and curative, it can be applied at the first signs of inflammation.

Nasonex: specifically for the nose

 Nazoneks - a medicament for topical treatment of allergic and inflammatory conditions of the nose. The product effectively removes allergic and inflammatory processes, but has a number of side effects, which do not allow to use it on their own without a doctor's prescription.

Structure and mechanism of action of Nasonex

Nasonex is composed of glucocorticoid hormone mometasone, and all means of glucocorticoid (GCS) quickly and effectively reduce the inflammatory and allergic processes. It is produced in the form of a nasal spray, and is only used locally in the form of injection into the nose. In this case, blood is drawn so slight amount of formulation that it can not even be determined by conventional laboratory methods.

Action Nasonex is it through a series of successive biochemical processes inhibits prostaglandin release process - substances that cause and maintain an inflammatory and allergic reactions. The effect of its use comes immediately: swelling of the nasal mucosa decreases and returns to the previously disturbed nasal breathing. It would seem that what could be better?

But deceit any SCS is that they have a number of side effects which may significantly occur even when applied topically.

Side effects of Nasonex

The first side-effect is the ability of the SCS disrupt blood clotting, which can lead to nosebleeds. And as the nasal mucosa when chronic diseases and so irritated the bleeding may become habitual.

Another equally unpleasant complication of long Nasonex is the reduction of local immunity. This allows you to activate pathogenic microflora, always dwelling on the mucous membrane of the nasal cavity. As a result, allergic processes associated infection, which greatly burdens the process itself and its treatment. And if Nasonex used to treat infectious and inflammatory process, with a decrease in immunity is necessary to ensure that the patient receive adequate doses of antibiotics, or an inflammatory process spread to the surrounding tissue or bloodstream can get to distant organs and tissues of the patient.

How to avoid unpleasant effects when taking Nasonex

But with the right use of the drug under medical supervision side effects are avoided. To do this, allergic rhinitis Rhinitis: a runny nose - is quite serious  Rhinitis: a runny nose - is quite serious
   patient periodically inspects ENT doctor and, if necessary, appoint the bacteriological tests of mucus from the nose. When the infection the patient is prescribed antibacterials. Nazoneks used to treat exacerbations of seasonal allergic rhinitis, as well as for prevention of exacerbations. In order to prevent aggravation of the common cold, Nasonex appointed no earlier than four and no later than two weeks before the pollen season appearance, on which the patient is allergic. Such treatment and prevention prescribed for adults and children since two years.

In chronic infectious-inflammatory processes, such as chronic sinusitis Chronic sinusitis - the effect on health  Chronic sinusitis - the effect on health
 , Sinusitis patients sometimes completely unable to breathe through the nose, in some cases, swelling and inflammation are so great that violate and breathing through the mouth. In order to reduce this swelling, administered Nasonex and simultaneously with it - antibacterial drugs that would suppress reproduction of conditionally pathogenic and pathogenic microflora and spread of infection. Typically, with the right combination of antibacterial drugs Nasonex and comes faster remission than with some antibiotics Antibiotics - whether they will help you in the foreseeable future?  Antibiotics - whether they will help you in the foreseeable future?

Since children under 12 years of immunity, usually imperfect, Nasonex used in infectious and inflammatory diseases, it is not recommended. Do not use it, and under severe infectious processes such as tuberculosis - it is very dangerous. Do not use Nasonex if untreated infections of any origin (bacterial, fungal, viral, protozoal) - this can cause the rapid spread of infection in apparently favorable course of the disease.

Contraindications for Nasonex during pregnancy and nursing Breastfeeding - a personal choice  Breastfeeding - a personal choice
   No breasts, however, given that clinical trials with this group of patients was conducted before his appointment is recommended to carefully weigh all the "pros" and "cons". To do this, of course, be a doctor.

Nasonex Treatment should be under medical supervision, while the patients are always warned that they will decrease the immune system and they should beware of contact with infectious patients, as the great opportunity to catch.

Nasonex - it is an effective anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic drug that is used only on prescription.
