The most treatment people do when dealing with chronic sinus infection is taking a course of antibiotic.
What many people don’t know is that these drugs could actually make the underlying problem become even worse.
You may be confuse about this fact. How can a drug use to treat the sinus infection aggravate the problem? The reason is because antibiotic kills all bacteria in your nasal passages, including the good one. The nasal cavity needs the good bacteria to protect it against the buildup bacteria. So if there’s no good bacteria left, means nothing left to protect the nasal passage.
To solve this problem, Dr. Mas Takashima, the director of Sinus Center at Baylor College of Medicine is developing new therapies with the purpose of reducing symptoms and also fight the sinus infections. What surprising about the therapy is that it includes probiotic nasal rinse and baby shampoo sinus irrigation.
Takashima explain that the therapies are using ways in targeting bacteria that have never been used in the past. He also said that the technique can help people with chronic and acute sinusitis. He continues by saying how the patients were surprised when he first told them about the therapeutic protocols but in the end, they got the result they need.
