Chronic : Chronic sinusitis includes nasal obstruction, sinus pain and pressure around the eyes, nasal drainage, chronic cough, fatigue, headache, nose bleeds and several other symptoms--you do not need them all. These symptoms are persent more often than not for at least 3 months. You may also get exacerbations that worsen all of the symptoms temporarily making it feel more like an acute sinusitis. Chronic sinusitis is treated with several meds at the same time: nasal steroid spray, antihistamine, nasal saline irrigations, prolonged antobiotics (4-6 weeks).
