How To Get Rid Of Fungus In Your Sinus

In this video, Dr Kevin Soh explains the treatment of blocked nose, nasal polyps and sinusitis.

Nasal polyps are teardrop-shaped, noncancerous growths on the lining of your nasal passages or sinuses. Nasal polyps are associated with chronic inflammation of the lining of your nasal passages and chronic sinusitis

Small nasal polyps may cause no problems and go unnoticed. Larger nasal polyps can block your nasal passages or sinuses, you may experience some of the following signs and symptoms:

  • Breathing difficulty
  • Running nose
  • Lose of sense of smell
  • Lose of sense of taste
  • Frequent sinus infections
  • Postnasal drip
  • Facial pain
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Itching around the eye areas

Although nasal polyps can affect anyone, they’re more common in adults, particularly those with asthma, frequent sinus infections and allergies. We have two groups of nasal polyps- antrochoanal and ethmoidal polyps. Antrochoanal polyps occur in the maxillary sinuses. ethmoidal polyps occur in the ethmoidal sinuses. The most common type of nasal polyp is etmoidal polyps.

Some of the signs and symptoms of nasal polyps are similar to many other conditions, including the common cold. If the condition continues for more than 10days, it is advisable to consult the doctor.
