INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE AN ACUTE SINUS INFECTION DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

What is an acute sinus infection during pregnancy?

An acute sinus infection (acute rhinosinusitis, acute sinusitis) is an infection of the sinuses (spaces within the bone of the skull) that has a fairly fast onset and reaches peak severity over a matter of hours to days. Typically, the nasal cavity is involved along with the sinuses. Acute sinusitis is in contrast to a chronic sinus infection, which tends to be less severe, but lasts a long time. A sinus infection can be viral, resulting from a virus such as the kind of virus that causes the common cold, or it can be bacterial, caused by a bacteria, which is a more serious condition.
