Sinusitis is the inflammation of the nasal cavity from a viral or bacterial infection. Part of the body’s reaction to the infection causes the sinus lining to swell, blocking the channels that drain the sinuses. This causes mucus and pus to fill up the nose and sinus cavities. The symptoms and inflammation may also be the result of the nose and sinuses reacting to conditions in the environment, triggering an allergic reaction.
