lingering cold, sinus

I have had a cold for 2-1/2 weeks . Lately I have felt a lot of pressure in my nose, with headaches in front. Still have lots of nose drainage and congestion in lungs.(clear phlegm). Is this what they call sinusitis?
Can you help, please.
thanks.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Sinusitis, Sinusitis occurs when your sinuses -- air filled cavities around your nose, eyes, and cheeks -- get inflamed.

Here lungs are also involved so it is more than sinusitis.

Sinusitis refers to an inflammation of the mucous membrane lining the Para nasal sinuses. If often follows the common cold, influenza and other general infections. Germs which are usually eliminated from body sometimes find their way into these sinuses or chambers on either side of the nasal passage, leading to sinus trouble. The sinuses consist of cavities or chambers contained in the bones situated in the head and face region. The frontal ,maxillary, ethmoid and sphenoid sinuses are the Para nasal sinuses which communicate with the nose. The frontal sinuses lie on the frontal bone directly above the eyes. The maxillary sinuses are located one on each side of the nose under the cheekbone. The ethmoid and sphenoid sinuses are situated behind the nose or either side of it. These air sinuses lighten the weight of the skull and give resonance to the voice.

Symptoms:
The symptoms of sinusitis are excessive or constant sneezing, a running nose, blockage of one or both nostrils, headaches and pressure around the head, eyes and face. Sinus headaches are usually felt in the forehead and in the face just below the eyes. The patient may suffer from a low grade fever, lack of appetite, loss of sense of appetite, and toothache. He feels miserablebecause of difficulty in breathing. The voice is also affected because of the blocked nose.

Causes:
Sinusitis results from the congestion of the sinus passages due to catarrh. It is caused by over-secretion of mucus in the membranes lining the nose, throat and head. This over-secretion is due to irritation caused by toxins in the blood.
A faulty diet is thus the real cause of sinus trouble. When a person consumes certain types of foods or drinks regularly, these, in due course, have a conditioning effect on the entire system. As a result, some persons become more sensitive to certain allergens, whose reaction ultimately turns into sinusitis.

Let me know how much you agree with above text :) with respect to your symptoms.

Ok! Bronchitis symptoms was mentioned by you long time back. You can try with ginger-honey-lemon drink as explained before (if your remember) since it works for you .

Get hold of the following medicine in liquid dilution.
1) Ars. Alb 30.

>> Take three doses of Ars. Alb 30 in a day. First dose should be taken early morning empty stomach. Second dose in the afternoon and third dose before going to bed. Repeat for three days.

One dose means.
The medicine is in liquid dilution form. Add 3-4 drops of medicine in some half cup (Approx. 3 sip) water and stir with spoon. Sip up the content.

Make sure you keep all medicines away from direct sunlight, strong smell, strong heat zone (keep it in a dark cool place away from allopathic medicines). Also make sure the dropper is fitted with the bottle, else use separate dropper for different medicine for making doses, this will avoid unnecessary contamination.
Please follow homeopathy restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, and no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 45 minutes before or after taking medicine and brushing of teeth one hour before or one hour after taking the medicine. These restrictions need to be followed each time you take homeopathy medicines during the treatment.

No need to go for antibiotic doses.

Keep me updated.

Blessings & Prayers,
Nikkie.
