Arlington Sinusitis Treatment
Are You Experiencing Cold or Flu-Like Symptoms?
The sinuses are hollow cavities in the skull located behind the nose and above the eyes. These cavities are empty except for a thin layer of mucus. However, they can become infected and filled with mucus. This is known as sinusitis, and the symptoms are very similar to that of the common cold or flu. Sinusitis is very common and can affect both adults and children.
The four most common types of sinusitis include:
- Acute sinusitis – a short term infection that lasts between 2 to 4 weeks
- Subacute sinusitis – a more serious infection that can last between 4 to 12 weeks
- Chronic sinusitis – a long-term infection that lasts for 12 weeks or more
- Recurrent sinusitis – an infection that occurs several times a year
Sinusitis is an uncomfortable condition to live with. If you or a loved one are exhibiting the symptoms of a sinus infection in Arlington, contact Urgentology Care today to schedule a same-day appointment.

- Sore throat
- Eye pain
- Ear pain
- Tenderness or swelling in the face
- Bad breath
