Paediatric Sinusitis – Part 1 (What is Paediatric Sinusitis?)

November 5, 2013

What is Paediatric Sinusitis?

tPaeBabies are born with no immune system and it is only though the mothers breast milk that some immunity is acquired. As a baby grows and develops into a child he/she begins to slowly develop his/her immune system.

As ones immune system is not developed before the first several years of one’s life, it makes it easier for viruses, bacteria and other harmful agents to wreak havoc on a child system. Children are most susceptible to developing infections in the sinus cavities, nose and ear regions.

Paediatric sinusitis occurs when a child develops sinusitis after a normal cold or flu. Should this sinusitis persist, it can develop into chronic sinusitis. Physicians and otolaryngologists are often consulted to treat not only sinusitis but also help with associated symptoms. Antibiotics are usually the recommended treatment for paediatric sinusitis.

Children, like adults have 4 paired sinus cavities, the maxillary, sphenoid, ethmoid and frontal sinus cavities. At birth children have their ethmoid and maxillary sinus cavities and as they grow, the sphenoid and frontal sinus cavities develop. This occurs around the ages of 5 and 7. A child’s sinus cavities are smaller in size and have smaller openings through which mucus can drain. It is also more common for children to develop sinusitis in their ethmoid and maxillary sinus cavities.

There are three distinctions that differentiate levels of sinusitis in children:

  1. Acute Sinusitis occurs when one or more of the sinus cavities become infected and inflamed.
  2. Chronic Sinusitis occurs when the condition has persisted for longer than two months.
  3. Recurrent Sinusitis occurs when a child keeps developing sinusitis over a period a time with medical treatment providing only temporary relief.

The development of chronic sinusitis can often be a result of an immunodeficiency in a child, cystic fibrosis, an allergy such as hayfever or allergic rhinitis or even a syndrome whereby the cilia’s functioning is impaired called Immotile Cilia Syndrome.

What makes it so difficult to effectively treat bacterial sinusitis is that if a child is given antibiotics too frequently his or her body can build up a resistance to antibiotics. Frequent antibiotic use can also result in unwanted negative effects on a young child’s development.

Please be aware: Any cold or flu like symptoms that your child has and that persist over a period of 10-14 days are not always caused by a sinus infection as these can also be related to a common cold or flu.

SINUSITIS

October 4, 2013

SINUSITIS- occurs when the small, air filled spaces inside the cheekbones and forehead become inflamed due to bacterial or viral infection. This can occur in two forms; namely acute or chronic sinusitis.

  • Acute sinusitis is when the infection only lasts for a week or a few days or up to 12 weeks. While some people will only experience its symptoms once or twice in their life time, many people experience it more frequently.
  • Chronic sinusitis is the kind of sinusitis that last longer than 12 weeks, meaning that the symptoms become more agonizing and aggressive as time goes by.

The causes of Sinusitis

  • Mucus build-up in the sinuses is known to prolong the infection which is then likely to lead to chronic sinusitis.
  • Inhaling or sniffing substances that irritate the lining of the nose.
  • Dental infections that spreads from an infected tooth to a maxillary sinus.
  • Colds and flu caused by bacteria or virus which spreads to the sinuses.
  • Weak immune system leaves one vulnerable to any infection
  • Hormonal changes during pregnancy can trigger nasal inflammation.
  • Asthma, smoking, diabetes, and previous injuries to the nose or cheeks.

Symptoms of Sinusitis

  • Feeling either facial pain or fullness
  • Having green or yellow discharge
  • Lack of sense of smell
  • Post Nasal Drip
  • Halitosis
  • Rhinitis
  • Pressure and Headaches

Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis – A Killer in Itself

December 10, 2012

thrombosis_cavernous_sinusAn eye, nose, tooth or throat infection left untreated has the potential to spread to the sinus veins located behind the eyes causing blood clots which have the potential to become fatal. This is what happened in 2006 with a 17 year old dying from this condition.

Surgeons have however noted that this condition is rare and research is still underway to find out why the infection spreads to the sinus veins behind the eyes.

Other signs of Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis include a loss of vision, bulging eyes, headaches  and a swelling of the conjunctiva, symptoms not uncommon with sinus infections.


Ever wondered just how effective those tablets your Doctor prescribed for a common cold really are?

October 23, 2012

That’s exactly what I ended up wondering after returning home with a shopping bag full of antibiotics, pain medications, mucus relievers and other smarty-like tablets. Wow, I’m starting to sound like one of those neurotic people that goes to the Doctor for the faintest of sniffles but in reality, I only really get a cold every winter season and most do go away on their own; but my latest one seems to have become super resilient to what I term my “inner fighting abilities” because I just couldn’t seem to rid myself of the cold symptoms well into the second week.

So what did my research uncover? Overall findings show that my common cold is a result of viruses and not bacteria however antibiotics are used to treat bacterial invasions and not viruses… interesting… so why all the antibiotics especially considering using antibiotics when there is no infection, can be both harmful and can lead to possible allergic reactions when overused?

One of the main reasons behind the recommendation of antibiotics for colds is that they have been found to help in treating cough symptoms with a recent study being performed on children with colds and accompanying cold symptoms. The main benefit found here was that antibiotics and anti-tussive medications (Capable of relieving or suppressing coughing) or a combination of both helps alleviate coughing which can be quite intense in children and infants so there may be a high possibility that giving antibiotics to alleviate coughing allows the child’s “inner fighting abilities” to kick-into-gear, assisting it in treating the actual cold.

OriFlu Away

Natural Flu Treatment

With natural treatments such as the SinusWars OriFlu and Cold Remedy, it’s not just the coughing that’s treated; sneezing, headaches, low grade fevers, dreaded muscles and joint aches together with chills, shivering and a runny nose are all assisted. With this remedy these symptoms are not just masked as it helps to strengthen a battered-and-bruised immune system, ensuring it bounces back into tiptop shape and ensures a cold or flu doesn’t linger for longer than absolutely necessary. 

So if your “inner fighting ability” has taken an early Christmas vacation or just down-tooled on you, don’t fret… perhaps take treatment measures from the onset the natural way and if this doesn’t work, you can always make that appointment with your GP for the inevitable recommendation of antibiotics; if only to treat your coughing.

Herb-Away your Nasal Polyp

October 15, 2012

Ever wondered if there are herbs you could be adding to your lunch of dinner that may just help in treating those persistent nasal polyps? Well wonder no more…

Nasal polyps are non-cancerous growths that can develop in the nasal linings of the sinus cavities and nasal passages and are often quite difficult to treat as sinus surgery is often only 50% successful.

Bayberry

Bayberry

Our first herb is Bayberry which is said to have not only astringent and antibacterial properties but also steroidal actions. Steroidal action is achieved when bayberry is used in a type of snuff.

Then there’s the infamous Goldenseal which is also purported to have astringent and antibacterial peripheries when used as a snuff. Goldenseal as a herb should however not be used whilst pregnant however Goldenseal in Homeopathic form is completely safe.

The analgesic actions of Siberian Cocklebur together with its antibacterial properties help in the reduction of nasal polyp size allowing the underlying connective tissue to reattach themselves.

These herbal items can be eaten in food (not too sure of their taste through) or taken in a herbal tablet form which for me sounds an awful lot simpler.

Other natural treatments include the Homeopathic Remedy SinusWars13; an all-natural treatment designed to help target the reason behind nasal polyps such as irritation and inflammation of the nasal linings. Once this is treated, the nasal polyp is allowed to decrease in size allowing for re-connection of connective tissue matrix; a decrease in swelling and inflammation and also clearer nasal passages as nasal mucus is allowed to drain freely.
