Sinus Infection Treatment Available to Residents and Visitors of Kapalua, Hawaii
Receiving sinus infection treatment quickly is very important. A sinus infection, also known as sinusitis, is an inflammation in the tissue that lines the sinus cavities that can be caused by a number of factors, including allergies and infections. This swelling can block off the sinuses, trapping mucus and air inside the cavities. Pain and pressure often occur as a result of this blockage, and if treatment is delayed or not sought at a reliable medical center in Kapalua, HI, a bacterial infection may also occur.
At Urgent Care West Maui, we proudly treat patients with sinus infections 365 days a year. Our doctors have the experience and training needed to relieve the pressure and pain of sinusitis, as well as all other associated symptoms, including thick, colored mucus and congestion. And, patients can count on receiving the care they need fast because there is usually only a minimal wait to see a doctor at our medical center.
In order to start treatment for sinusitis, our doctors in Kapalua, Hawaii, will:
- Ask about a patient’s recent medical history, symptoms, and recent activities
- Perform a complete examination of the patient, looking for symptoms and the cause of the infection
- Conduct diagnostic testing, including laboratory testing, to figure out what exactly is causing the sinus infection.
Once the condition and cause is confirmed, sinus infection treatment can begin. Common forms of treatment include prescribing antibiotics if caused by an infection or allergy medications if the sinus infection is caused by allergies. Painkillers and decongestants may also be offered to help with the symptoms.
