Cold and Headache that Won't Go Away! Is Sinusitis the Cause?

Dr. Rajiv Sood

Sinusitis is the inflammation, acute or chronic of the lining membrane of one or more of the air filled cavities that develop as out-pouching from the lining of the nose into the bones of the upper jaw and forehead. Homoeopathy offers a reliable treatment for the complaints of sinusitis without any side effects. For a complete cure homoeopathic physician needs to be consulted. Many homoeopathic remedies have been proved efficacious for the relief of acute sinusitis. A few of the remedies are listed below with their indications.


Sinuses are hollow air spaces, of which there are many in the human body. Paranasal sinuses are big air cavities within the skull bones and most of them are clustered around the nose. The sinuses that are clustered around the nose are called paranasal sinuses. Sinusitis is the inflammation of these paranasal sinuses. These cavities, located within the skull or bones of the head surrounding the nose, include the frontal sinuses over the eyes in the brow area; the maxillary sinuses inside each cheekbone; the ethmoids just behind the bridge of the nose and between the eyes; and behind them, the sphenoids in the upper region of the nose and behind the eyes.

Each sinus has an opening into the nose for the free exchange of air and mucus, and each is joined with the nasal passages by a continuous mucous membrane lining. Therefore, anything that causes a swelling in the nose -- an infection or an allergic reaction -- also can affect the sinuses. Air trapped within an obstructed sinus, along with pus or other secretions, may cause pressure on the sinus wall. The result is the sometimes intense pain of a sinus attack. Similarly, when air is prevented from entering a paranasal sinus by a swollen membrane at the opening, a vacuum can be created that also causes pain. Sinusitis is the inflammation of these paranasal sinuses.

Symptoms of Sinusitis

  • Nasal blockage/nasal congestion
  • Nasal drainage (thick and discolored)
  • Postnasal drip
  • Low-grade fever
  • Facial pain/headache
  • Cough
  • Ear fullness/ear clogging
  • Bad taste/bad breath
The functions of paranasal sinuses are unclear but various theories suggest various functions. Sinuses are considered to be responsible for the lightening of the skull, warming and moistening of the inspired air and resonance of voice.

Sinusitis is the inflammation, acute or chronic of the lining membrane of one or more of the air filled cavities that develop as out-pouching from the lining of the nose into the bones of the upper jaw and forehead. Sinus secretions drain into the nasal cavity.

Predisposing Factors
  • Nasal infection
  • Pharyngeal infection such as tonsillitis and adenoiditis
  • Tooth infection
  • Bathing or swimming in unhygienic pools and infected water
  • Trauma
  • Influenza, measles, whooping cough and other diseases in children
  • Poor environment such as ill ventilated housing conditions or overcrowding
  • Lowered body resistance
  • Undue exposure to cold
  • Nasal obstruction due to deviation of nasal septum, hypertrophied turbinates and tumours.
  • Respiratory diseases such as chronic bronchitis, asthma and bronchiectasis
