The inflammatory process in the maxillary sinus occurs under the influence of bacterial microflora. So is formed the pus flowing from his nose and hits the back wall of the nasopharynx. May be accompanied by prolapse of pus in the mouth.

For the treatment uses broad-spectrum antibiotics. Shows the use of “Ciprofloxacin”, 500 mg 2 times a day, or “Azitroks” 500 mg 1 time a day, or “Amoxicillin” 500 mg 3 times a day. The course of treatment is 5-7 days. Topically used vasoconstrictor drops (“Galazolin”, “I”, “Naphazoline”), after 20 minutes you can bury “Polideksa”, “Isopro” or other drops with an antibiotic and glukokorticosteroida. Also inside is assigned to antihistamine therapy (pills “Diazolin” 1 tablet 2 times a day).

A complication may become purulent rhinitis, which is difficult to treat and often gives of aggravation in the hypothermia. Before treatment is required to bacterial seeding of the contents of the nasal passages to determine sensitivity to antibiotics.

If nasal pus flowed with blood is boil

Furunculosis is a serious systemic disease. It is based on a decrease function of the immune system and carriage of pyogenic microflora (streptococci, staphylococci, Haemophilus coli, Klebsiella, etc.). If the nose simultaneously pus flowed with blood and that the allocation ceased, then with high probability it is a boil, which bursts out spontaneously and was discovered. As a rule, the elements of the abrasions are not rare. Patients can find numerous ulcers on the back, neck and face.

Boil in the nose can be located in the part of the mucosa, where they grow hairs. Inflamed hair follicles on the bottom, in the area of the nasal septum, the upper part of the cavities. In the absence of etiotropic treatment, the disease progresses, new elements appear again and again.

Treatment of sinusitis is a long and expensive process. Settled here pathogenic microflora has a certain resistance to antibacterial therapy, as not all antibiotics are able to reach to the hearth of its location. For this reason, held puncture, punctures and lavage of the paranasal sinuses with antiseptic solutions.

Timely start of etiotropic treatment allows to avoid such manipulation. Patients undergo a study of bacterial secreted from the nose of pus and its results is assigned to antimicrobial therapy. Prior to receipt of results is assigned broad-spectrum antibiotics.

Also locally assigned rinsing the nasal passages with a solution “Miramistina”, “Furatsilinom”. Immediately after rinsing and draining the used vasoconstrictor drops. After half an hour you can get medical drops with a content of hormonal and antibacterial component.
