What do we mean when we talk about sinus congestion, sinus infections and sinusitis? Here are some basic definitions to help you out:
Sinus congestion: A blocked or clogged feeling in your nose or sinuses, caused by inflammation or swelling (which can lead to extra fluid or mucus build-up).1,2
Conditions like colds and flu can cause mucus congestion.2 Find out more about these common conditions and their symptoms.
Sinus infection: An infection is when foreign micro-organisms, like bacteria or viruses, invade part of your body (in this case, the sinuses) and cause harm.3,4
Sinusitis: Inflammation in your sinuses, which can develop when they become swollen and filled up with excess fluid (mucus) instead of air, causing them to feel blocked (congested).4 This may be caused by a viral or bacterial sinus infection.4,5
These are some of the most common sinusitis symptoms:4-6
(Note that you may not have all of these symptoms at once.)4-6
Find out more about the different types of sinus infections.
Clearing out the excess mucus from your sinuses can prevent a more serious infection from developing there.7 Certain medications can help to clear out the sinuses and relieve congestion.8,9 For example, common
over-the-counter mucolytic medication can be used for up to 14 days to make the mucus blocking your sinuses thinner and less sticky, so it’s easier to blow out.8,9
