by Horihor Horon

Most of the people keep on wondering what is sinus infection or about other viral diseases? It is important for you to know about these diseases as this will help you to be aware of the environment around you and you can be healthy all the time.
There are several diseases that attack the human body and the bodies of the human beings get full of pain all over the body. The diseases are caused due to the improper immune system in the body. It happens due to the improper amount of nutrients in the body.

Sinus infection is very common among many people, who suffer from this disease. Sinuses are the hollow cavities near the bones that are part of the skull. These are present in the nose part of the body. When these sinuses swell, then Sinusitis disease is caused in the human bodies. The sinuses are blocked due to some allergic or reaction due to misbalance of the immune system. The blockage traps air inside the sinuses along with the other secretions. There are pressures caused due to the secretion on the walls of the sinus walls. It is due to this pressure that a person feels pain and discomfort in the sinus area. This infection is very common, from which several people are suffering every day. This infection can also occur due to the fungal and viral infections.

There are different kinds of sinuses from which people suffer. These sinuses are:
1) Frontal sinuses – These are present in the brow and over the eye areas.
2) Maxillary sinuses – These are present in the cheekbones.
3) Sphenoid sinuses – These are present behind the ethmoids in the upper region of the nose and behind the eyes.
4) Ethmoid sinuses – These are present behind the nose and between the eyes.

Any of these four sinuses can be infected and you can feel pain in these parts. Many people say that have problems of sinus but it is true that most of them do not know what is sinus infection? There are several symptoms of sinuses and these are pain in the head, headaches, ear or neck, swelling of the eyelids, pain between the eyes, loss of smell, pain in the cheeks, teeth, upper jaw and tenderness in the nose area. You can also face these problems like weakness, severe cough, tiredness, fever, runny nose and others. The acute sinusitis may cause infection in the brain or other big complications. There are acute, chronic and recurring attacks of sinuses in the human body. The sinus attacks are due to the viral cold also. The people, who have weak immune system, can even get hay fever due to sinus problems.

Now let me share with with you another commonly attacked disease and that is Pink Eye. Do you know what is pink eye? Conjunctiva is a thin membrane that is a part of the eye. This covers the white part of the eye or the eyeball. When this conjunctiva gets inflamed and becomes red, then it is called pink eye. There are three types of pink eye and these are:
1) Viral pink eye
2) Bacterial pink eye
3) Allergic pink eye

In the Viral pink eye, there is watering of the eyes and discharge in one eye. In the allergic pink eye, both the eyes get affected. Both of these become pink in color with tears in the eyes. The bacterial pink eye has same features as that of the viral pink eye.
