Steroid Nasal spray and antibiotic therapy effective for acute sinusitisAccording to a recently published review, more than 37 million Americans suffer from nasal congestion, sinus pressure, cough and postnasal drip that accompany sinusitis.

Though doctors prescribe antibiotics for relieving acute sinusitis but that may develop following a chest cold, a combination of steroid nasal spray and antibiotic therapy is the best option when it comes to easing symptoms and speedy recovery, as per researchers from Israel.

Sinusitis is an inflammation of the mucous membranes that is lined between the sinus cavities. Doctors usually prescribe steroid sprays like Nasonex, Flonase, and Rhinocort for treating chronic sinusitis and allergies symptoms.

It was remarked that 73 percent of patients treated with nasal steroids gained relief or significant improvement of symptoms compared with only 66.4 percent of patients receiving placebo during the study period.
