Chronic Sinusitis

Sinusitis is an inflammation or swelling of the tissue lining the sinuses.  Normally, sinuses are filled with air but when they become blocked and filled with fluid, bacteria or even sometimes fungus, germs grow and cause an infection.  It is characterized as symptoms lasting 8-10 weeks or more.
