Inflammation of the frontal sinuses should be treated under the supervision of an otolaryngologist, who will make a diagnosis based on the X-ray and complaints of the patient, and will also prescribe an individual treatment plan. In this case, you can combine drug therapy and home treatment.
It is necessary
- - vasoconstrictor drugs;
- - sea salt solution;
- - colloidal silver solution;
- - onion juice, honey;
- - Bay leaf;
- - cosmetic clay;
- - aloe juice, honey, onion juice, Vishnevsky ointment.
During the period of the acute course of the disease, it is necessary to provide the patient with bed rest, since at this time the frontal sinusitis is often accompanied by high fever, excruciating headaches. To ensure the outflow of purulent contents from the frontal sinuses into the nasal cavity, you need to use vasoconstrictor drugs.
Take a course of physiotherapy. If the symptoms of intoxication are removed, and the body temperature has stabilized, then subject to the free flow of discharge from the frontal sinuses, you can undergo physiotherapeutic treatment (warming up with a blue lamp, sollux, UHF).
Do inhalation with potatoes or herbal infusions. Inhalation of vapors through the nose can effectively liquefy mucus, relieve swelling, and facilitate blowing out.
Flush your sinuses with a solution of sea water - you can purchase ready-made spray cans or prepare a saline solution yourself (a teaspoon of salt in a glass of boiled water). The removal of mucus is also carried out in a hospital setting - the drug is poured into one nostril, and it is sucked out from the other nostril. Under pressure, pus is squeezed out of the sinus and the cavity is washed.
Taking antibacterial drugs is indicated in especially severe cases, when the fever lasts a long time and the course of the disease is complicated.
In the chronic course of frontal sinusitis, it is necessary to slightly dry the nasal mucosa - lubricate the cavities with a colloidal solution of silver, use vasoconstrictor drops.
Use the methods of traditional medicine - bury a mixture of onion juice and honey in your nose, breathe over a decoction of bay leaves, apply clay cakes to the frontal sinuses. Prepare an ointment from aloe juice, honey, onion juice and Vishnevsky's ointment, lubricate cotton filaments with the composition and place them in the nasal cavities for half an hour.
If conservative treatment does not give results, then it makes sense to agree to an operation - a puncture and cleansing of the frontal sinuses. All manipulations are performed under local or general anesthesia. Through an incision above the eyebrow, the doctor enters the cranial cavity, opens the frontal sinus and removes the purulent contents. Then a drainage structure is installed, and stitches are applied along the edges of the incision. After three weeks, the drainage is removed.
