Sinusitis are empty spaces in the skull area connected with the nasal passage, thus any infection in nose or throat may infect the sinuses. Accumulation of secretions in sinus area leads to heaviness in head, nasal obstruction, discharge and pain, lack of appetite, toothache and low fever.

Homeopathy for Sinusitis
Sinuses are air-filled cavities present in the skull-bone. They usually communicate with the nose through tiny openings. Therefore, a nasal infection sometimes spreads to one or more sinuses causing a swelling of their inner surfaces. Symptoms of sinusitis include throbbing pain in the forehead or cheeks, which gets worse on stooping, moving the head or coughing. The other symptom, which is very common problem in sinus, is fever.
There are many treatments for sinusitis that are widely applicable. The symptoms are given and their medicine should be chosen from the list.
