Why Does Sinusitis Become Chronic?
Bacteria - If you've tried surgery and medication without success, it's probably because there are resistant bacteria entrenched in your sinuses. Numerous studies indicate that bacterial infection is the ultimate cause of chronic sinus infections. These bacteria can persist despite surgery to remove physical blockages, antibiotic or anti-inflammatory steroid treatments, and traditional saline rinses. This is because the sinuses can contain resistant bacteria. If the bacteria are not removed, your body will not be able to completely heal.2-12
