Have you or your littles been battling a sinus infection?  Homeopathy may just be what you need to finally knock it out!

Sinus infection or Sinusitis (which is the medical term) is caused by inflammation of the sinuses that occurs with a viral, bacterial, or fungal infection.

The classic symptoms of acute sinusitis in adults usually follow a cold that does not improve, or one that worsens after 5 – 7 days of symptoms. Symptoms include:

  • Bad breath or loss of smell
  • Cough, often worse at night
  • Fatigue and generally not feeling well
  • Fever
  • Headache — pressure-like pain, pain behind the eyes, toothache, or facial tenderness
  • Nasal congestion and discharge (discharge is usually green or yellow)
  • Sore throat and postnasal drip

Symptoms of sinusitis in children include:

  • Cold or respiratory illness that has been improving and then begins to get worse
  • High fever, along with a darkened nasal discharge (usually green or yellow)
  • Nasal discharge, with or without a cough, that has been present for more than 5 days, is not improving and the child is not teething

Symptoms of chronic sinusitis are the same as those of acute sinusitis, but tend to be milder and last longer than 8 weeks.

You can combat Sinusitis by taking the remedies Kali Bich and then Pulsatilla rotating them through out the day (do not take at the same time) until the color of the discharge is clear again.

Warmly,

Homeo Ped
