Rhinosinusitis

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Dr. Christy McLean from the Primary Health Group in Brandermill is on the case.

Symptoms include facial pain and pressure, nasal congestion with thick discharge and dental pain.

To prevent it, eliminate your exposure to cigarette smoke and limit contact with people who have colds.

If you want to treat at home, use a humidifier to moisten air, drink plenty of water to thin secretions, and take hot showers with warm facial compresses.

Seek medical care if symptoms are present longer than seven days.
