Genyantritis - inflammation of the mucosa of the maxillary sinuses. The cause of inflammation can be a viral or bacterial infection that has fallen into the sinus. Often, viral sinusitis is preceded by acute respiratory disease( ARI), influenza, dental disease on the upper jaw, abundant nosebleeds. Bacterial infection with sinus causes complication of the disease. It occurs when the outflow of mucus from the maxillary sinuses is disturbed. It is the development of bacteria in mucus that causes purulent discharge from the nose, characteristic of the acute course of the disease. Symptoms of sinusitis: temperature, headache, abundant mucous discharge from the nose, lack of nasal breathing, nasal voice.
What does the "temperature" tell you when sinusitis?
Any inflammatory disease is accompanied by an increase in body temperature. Depending on the temperature at the genyantritis, you can determine the severity of the disease. There are three degrees of severity of the disease:
1. If the body temperat
2. If the genyantritis is diagnosed and the temperature is 37 to 38 degrees( febrile), then this is the average severity of the condition. It is typical for catarrhal or allergic sinusitis.
3. If at a genyantritis the temperature is up to 37 degrees( subfebrile), then the patient either has a mild form of the disease or has a chronic course. Also, perhaps, the disease is caused by a fungal infection.
Regardless of the temperature at the genyantritis, it is necessary to consult a doctor-otolaryngologist( ENT).Since the presence of even a low temperature indicates that the body is an inflammatory process.
Should I bring down the temperature?
Almost every disease is accompanied by an increase in body temperature. And in this connection there are questions: "Is it necessary to bring down the elevated body temperature? And if necessary, at what value? ".
An increase in temperature during sinusitis testifies to the fact that a person develops an inflammatory process. At a body temperature of 37.5 degrees, the defensive reaction of the body works, and interferon begins to be produced. Interferon fights against the viruses and bacteria that caused the disease. Interferon is produced by the body, while the human body temperature is below 38.5 degrees. Therefore, we conclude: "It's not necessary to knock down the temperature to 38.5 degrees".
If the defenses of the body are not enough to cope with the infection on its own, and the temperature at the genyantritis is kept at 38.5 degrees or higher, it is necessary to take an antipyretic agent( Panadol, Nurofen) and immediately consult a doctor for advice. Since, perhaps, there was a bacterial complication of sinusitis. And purulent mucus began to form in the maxillary sinuses. And this can lead to an increase in body temperature to 40 degrees, which is a threat to the life of the patient and is the reason for his immediate hospitalization.
How long does the temperature last for maxillary sinusitis
The temperature for maxillary sinusitis lasts no more than a week, of course, if the proper treatment is prescribed, and the patient strictly adheres to the prescriptions of the doctor. After recovery, the patient's body temperature will assume its normal value.
When a patient has acute purulent sinusitis at a temperature above 39 degrees and has been prescribed antibiotics, his body temperature will gradually decrease as the bacteria and viruses that cause the disease die.
There are cases when seven days have passed, antibiotics are over, and the temperature with maxillary sinusitis is high. This indicates that the prescribed antibiotics had no effect on the bacteria. That is, the bacteria that caused inflammation are resistant to this type of medicine. In this case, a bacteriological culture of purulent mucus from the nose is performed to find out which bacteria caused the acute sinusitis and which antibiotic they can destroy. The patient is then given a new course of antibacterial medication. That is, in some cases, fever can last up to two weeks.
If after a genyantritis the body temperature is not normalized, it is an occasion to consult a doctor so that he has ordered an additional examination. Probably, there were complications of the disease, which are the cause of increased temperature.
When the patient has completed the course of treatment for sinusitis, all symptoms of the disease( absence of nasal breathing, nasal voice, facial swelling, pain syndrome) will pass, including fever. After a genyantritis a person needs to monitor his health so as not to become infected with a new infection. An organism weakened by an illness can become an easy target for harmful microorganisms. To improve health, you must drink a course of multivitamins, eat plenty of vegetables and fruits, walk on the street every day.
