In the human body, the nose performs an extremely important function: it warms, cleanses and moistens the air entering the lungs, protecting them from hypothermia and penetration of various kinds of infections.
Air passing through the nasal cavity is saturated with nitrogen oxide, which, in turn, saturates the blood with oxygen. Consequently, obstructed nasal breathing due to sinusitis can cause serious health problems.
To date, sinusitis, alas, is one of the most common diseases. That is why the question of whether it is possible to cure sinus infection without a puncture at home is extremely topical. From the puncture, people find themselves for various reasons: someone is scared of the fear of this procedure, and someone simply considers it ineffective. But it is worth noting that self-treatment and non-compliance with the recommendations given by an experienced otolaryngologist can lead to very unpleasant consequences.
In this article, we'll look at how you can quickly cure sinusitis without a puncture, and what means to do it better - pharmacy drugs, or traditional medicine.
At the first signs of this ailment, immediate treatment should begin. should be cautioned with the following symptoms of :
- a stuffy nose is a common symptom of this disease;
- persistent cold;
- severe headaches;
- pain in the upper cheeks;
- pain in the eyes and around them;
- pain in the frontal part;
- elevated body temperature;
- yellowish-greenish mucus from the nose( pus).
In no case should you delay the treatment of sinusitis. Otherwise, it can be very serious. Often ignoring the disease leads to the development of its chronic form.
The most common method of treatment without puncture used in children's and adult practice is the way of moving liquids, it is called "cuckoo".The essence of the method is the introduction of the drug into the sinus with the help of a catheter inserted into the nasal cavity. The medicinal antibacterial agent washes the mucosa, rinses the bacteria and, together with pus, is removed through the catheter in another nasal cavity.
The method is practically painless, except for a small discomfort, patients feel nothing. After the first procedure there is a significant improvement in the condition, the nasal congestion disappears. Completely get rid of the disease can be for 5-7 sessions.
At home, , the nose can be rinsed using folk methods:
- Simple simple sinus lavage with herbal and saline solutions helps, it can be done at home. If you do not have the right grass, take ordinary sea salt and mix it with clean water. You can carry out similar rinses 2-3 times a day.
- For the burial of the nose you can use honey solution. At 2 tbsp.l.warm water take 1 tsp.honey. The ingredients are thoroughly stirred and applied 3-5 times a day.
- For washing the nose, you can use a weak solution of potassium permanganate or iodine.
Also at home, treatment of sinusitis is supplemented by washing the sinuses with an antiseptic solution. For example, Furacilin, suppressing streptococci and staphylococci. Half of the Furacilin tablet is ground and dissolved in half a liter of warm water, followed by rinsing.
A relatively recently developed method for the treatment of purulent antritis without puncture is the use of the YAMIK catheter. The technique of the procedure is similar to that performed with the "cuckoo", but the catheter in this version is a rigid tube with small latex containers at both ends, it is installed in one of the nasal sinuses.
Bloating, cans create a sealed space, from which it is easy to suck pus with a syringe. At the same time, with the help of another syringe, medicinal preparations are introduced into the paranasal sinuses of the patient. Such treatment of sinusitis gives a very good result, especially if combined with laser heating - another modern way to treat acute or chronic sinusitis without a puncture.
Drops with genyantritis
These are necessary to reduce mucosal edema and better release of contents from the maxillary sinus. vasoconstrictors are used, such as
They are used several times a day before the procedure for washing the nose. Bury a few drops in the nostril or put turundas, dipped in one of the preparations.
Inhalation is used in case of genyantritis to remove mucosal edema, liquefaction of pus and disinfection of the maxillary sinus. Before carrying out inhalation, it is necessary to thoroughly wash the nose. For inhalation, the use of any infusions of herbs( celandine, chamomile, yarrow) is suitable.
An effective method is inhalation using conventional boiled potatoes. Hot potatoes should be kneaded in a bowl, then put in front of you and cover yourself with a towel. Breathe over hot steam preferably before the complete cooling of the potato mass.
Various physiotherapy procedures are widely used to treat sinusitis. Most often, electrophoresis and phonophoresis are prescribed for the sinus area.
This involves the introduction of a variety of drugs( hydrocortisone suspension, zinc sulfate solution) under the influence of galvanic current or ultrasound. In addition, it is recommended to apply ultrasound to the sinus area for the purpose of warming up and improving blood supply.
For therapeutic purposes, the radiation of a therapeutic helium-neon laser and intraspecific phonophoresis are used. For the purpose of antibacterial therapy, inhalations of a 1% solution of imanine, ecolin, UHF and UV irradiation are used.
The weakened organism itself is not able to cope with sinusitis, so to cure this disease, the doctor prescribes antibacterial drugs. The doctor selects them taking into account each specific case: the severity of the disease, the patient's condition, anamnesis, the presence of allergies in the patient, the price of the drug, etc.
In cases of genyantritis, the following are usually prescribed:
- Ampicillin and others.
Treatment of genyantritis with antibiotics kills the germs and removes the swelling of the mucous membrane. Antibiotics will also expand the narrowed channels of the maxillary sinus, which will contribute to a rapid outflow of purulent mucus. Antibacterial drugs can be administered both intramuscularly and orally( through the mouth).
Treatment of sinusitis at home with the help of Sinuphorte, whose price is relatively small, can give quite good results. This nasal spray is easy to apply, as it should simply be sprayed onto the mucous membrane. In this case, treatment of sinusitis with cyclamen, as this plant is declared in the composition of the drug.
In light and moderate inflammation of the maxillary sinus this method of treatment in some cases( with the timely beginning of therapy) will help to avoid puncture.
When home treatment does not help: puncture of the maxillary sinus
When no other treatment helps to get rid of the genyantritis, and the purulent fluid becomes dense, and it is not possible to restore the patency between the sinus and the nasal cavity, the puncture of the maxillary sinus is prescribed.
No special training required for this procedure. A thin tool with cotton wool soaked in lidocaine, anesthetized puncture site. After this, using a sterile bent needle pierced bone septum between the sinus and nasal passage. A syringe filled with sodium chloride is connected to the needle and a purulent liquid is washed into the prepared container. To prevent congestion, the daxidine or other long-acting drug is injected into the sinus.
As a result, pressure on the walls of the maxillary sinus disappears, pain and intoxication go away, body temperature drops.
To get rid of sinusitis, you need to carefully plan a treatment plan. First of all, it is necessary to remove the inflammation and cope with the infection that caused the development of the disease. Special attention should be paid to prevention. At the first suspicions of a cold, it is necessary to regularly wash the nasal passages with saline solutions, use vasoconstrictive drops, and carry out inhalations.
Also, do not rely solely on your knowledge, treatment of both acute and chronic inflammation of the maxillary sinuses should take place under the strict supervision of the otorhinolaryngologist and only at his prescription!
