Exposure to the allergen causes changes pathogenic respiratory mucosa. It produces large amounts of mucus accumulates in the sinus cavity, against this background that easily occurs accession infection. There are the following symptoms:

  • nasal congestion for a long time

Clinical manifestations of acute sinusitis is

Chronic inflammation is characterized by a prolonged course. Most often it is a one way process with the defeat of sinuses on one side. Because the process takes a long time, there are changes in the nasal mucosa. Develop hypertrophic processes formed polypoid growths or polyps. Disturbed nasal breathing, suffering from the very functioning of the respiratory tract. Polyps can fill the entire nasal cavity, which will hinder the process of moving air through the nose and ventilation capacity appears to be broken. If the inflammation in chronic sinusitis is a common and obliterating polyps olfactory slit, the patient's sense of smell is impaired.

The most typical complaints are associated with longer duration of the inflammatory process and the development of complications. Paranasal sinuses are anatomic proximity to the eye sockets, so one of the first signs of chronic sinusitis are the following complications:

  • conjunctivitis
  • keratitis

 They have a distinctive appearance - swelling of the eyelids, redness of the eyes. Already on the basis of the appearance of the doctor may suspect the presence of inflammatory lesions of the nose and sinuses to conduct more in-depth examination of the impact parameter. Due to the swelling of the mucous and dysfunction of the lacrimal sac may suffer slezovydelitelnaya function.

Local signs of disease

Long term course of the disease leads to the fact that the patient has the objective local symptoms. In chronic sinusitis concerned purulent nasal discharge. Due to the fact that they are permanent, in the vestibule of the nose and upper lip, there are signs of skin irritation.
