Acute Rhinosinusitis: Know the Signs and When to Seek Help

Feeling congested, with facial pain, thick discharge, and headaches? These are common symptoms of acute rhinosinusitis, a simple sinus infection. Most cases resolve naturally, but if symptoms worsen, persist for over 10-14 days, or include high fever, facial swelling, or vision problems, consult a healthcare professional. Touchwood Pharmacy Northolt is your one-stop shop for convenient, accessible sinusitis relief in Northolt, Hayes, Hillingdon, Ruislip, Uxbridge, and beyond!

How can sinusitis be diagnosed?

In most cases, a visit to your local pharmacist at Touchwood Pharmacy is sufficient for diagnosing sinusitis. They will take a detailed history of your symptoms, perform a physical examination, and possibly ask you to inhale a nebulizer mist to assess drainage pathways. In some instances, further tests like a nasal endoscopy or CT scan might be necessary for a more definitive diagnosis, especially if complications are suspected.
