Ethmoid Sinusitis Treatment
There are four sinus cavities essential for filtering and humidifying the air entering the body through the nose. The ethmoid sinuses are the small sinus cells located on either side of the upper bridge of the nose. When the nasal passages become narrow or blocked, the ethmoid sinuses can become inflamed or infected. When you experienced ethmoid sinusitis symptoms, there are treatments for relief. Dr. Greg Levitin and our team at City Sinus Care offer advanced ethmoid sinusitis treatment at our clinic in Manhattan.
Ethmoid sinusitis is often caused by allergies or upper respiratory infections like colds or flu. Nasal congestion from common bacteria and viral infections can restrict air into the ethmoid sinuses. Other possible causes can include larger nasal polyps or any condition that restricts the airflow in the nasal passages. Most ethmoid sinus infections are short-lived, dissipating in a few weeks. However, some patients can suffer from chronic ethmoid sinusitis that can last for months. Symptoms of ethmoid sinusitis can include:
- Pain and tenderness around the bridge of the nose
- Pain and swelling around the eyes
- Thickened nasal mucus secretions
- Runny nose
- Sinus headaches
- Post-nasal drip
- Reduced taste and sense of smell
The ethmoid sinuses can be infected with other sinuses. Determining the proper treatment for relief may require medical treatment. Our experienced sinus experts at City Sinus Care can provide an accurate sinus infection diagnosis for ethmoid sinusitis and other sinus issues and provide a customized treatment plan for relief.
