Smoking increases the risk of sinusitis because it damages the mucous membranes of the mouth and pharynx, which is also true for passive smoking, warned the German Association of Otorhinolaryngology (ENT).
The association explained that the symptoms of sinusitis are nasal obstruction, olfactory disorder, respiratory problems, nasal nasal discharge, headaches, facial pain and pain in the jaw.
Other symptoms include sore throat, earache, fever and a general feeling of fatigue.
The doctor should be consulted immediately after these symptoms are observed for treatment, which is done with decongestant or nasal nasal sprays containing cortisone or antibiotics as well as analgesics.
To avoid sinusitis, you should stop smoking and avoid passive smoking.
