At the moment there is contact of the nasal mucosa with the element called antigen to which the person is sensitized.

It is an inflammation of the sinuses or paranasal cavities produced by viruses or bacteria at any stage of life.

The evacuation of the mucus generated in these cavities and its ventilation is produced by small natural holes and any inflammatory factor due to trauma, allergy, viruses or mechanical factors such as deviations of the septum presence of polyps or presence of foreign bodies can obstruct those holes creating favorable conditions for a bacterial infection or sinusitis.

Another more frequent, resembling a catarrhal condition that continues after ten days with nasal secretions, cough, little fever and bad breath.
