HAGERSTOWN, MD, January 01, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The sinuses, a part of the upper respiratory system, consists of four air-filled cavities around the nasal passages. While the main purpose of the sinuses is unknown, one thing is for certain-if you are experiencing sinus problems you know it! From acute and chronic sinusitis to allergic rhinitis and deviated septums, there are many reasons why your sinuses could be causing you problems. Don't just put up with the discomfort; make an appointment to see Dr. Kirby Scott, Hagerstown sinus doctor.
"We see a lot of patients dealing with sinusitis. There are many causes for acute sinusitis such as the common cold, smoking, and even air pollution," says Dr. Scott, Hagerstown, MD ENT doctor. "For some cases of acute sinusitis a simple course of antibiotics can nip the problem in the bud. I also recommend patients use a salt water wash to clean their noses."
If you have noticed pressure or pain around your eyes, a stuffy nose and an aching in your upper teeth, you might just be dealing with sinusitis. "There are also some at-home tips for treating your sinusitis. I also recommend hot and cold compresses to open up the passageways, decongestants and some over-the-counter medications," says Hagerstown sinus doctor, Dr. Scott. "Relief shouldn't just happen at the doctors office. I like to equip my patients with knowledge so that they can help themselves once they leave my office. I want them to feel their best at all times."
Acute sinusitis only lasts a few weeks, but if you've been fighting sinusitis for significantly longer, you might just have chronic sinusitis. "Patients who have asthma, allergies or nasal polyps are more prone to developing chronic sinusitis. Also those with compromised immune systems are more likely to deal with this chronic condition. For these patients we offer long-term medication or surgery, if necessary," says Hagerstown sinus doctor, Dr. Scott.
If you are having problems breathing and family members are tired of hearing you snore, you may be dealing with a deviated septum. A deviated septum means the nasal septum, which separates the two nasal passages, is crooked. "When patients are responding to treatments for their breathing issues or snoring, then we recommend surgery," says Dr. Scott, Hagerstown, MD ENT doctor. "The surgery is a quick, easy outpatient procedure, and so many patients have been satisfied with the results. Many say they've never been able to breathe so easily."
