Botox despite sinusitis
the only contraindication for infections is in active infections particularly in the skin through which you are injecting. no problem with sinusitis, chronic
Chronic sinusitis probably not a problem with Botox injections
I doubt a chronic sinusitis would interfere with Botox injections as long as such injections were delivered properly.
If you have not consulted an ENT specialist yet, I would recommend you do so. One hint: if the usual antibiotics fail, you might respond to an anti-fungal. On two occasions, I have treated patients with an anti-fungal (for toenail fungus) and their chronic sinusitis resolved. ( They had been on the usual antibiotics such as Amoxacillin and Levaquin). I suspect they had an aspergillosis sinusitis or perhaps a mold infestation
If there is no acute infection, there should be no problem for Botox
Patients with sinusitis may undergo Botox injections as long as there is no acute infections in which case an ENT specialist should evaluate them first, clear the infection and then Botox may be injected.
Have Botox when suffering from sinusitis
A chronic sinus condition should have no effect on the administration of Botox. Similarly, Botox should have no affect on your sinus condition. On the other hand, somebody with any severe acute infection in the facial area, including acute sinusitis, should wait until the infection is cleared prior to any facial injections or other facial elective cosmetic treatments.
An ENT Specialist can help you with your chronic sinusitis.
If you're suffering from chronic sinusitis, then you should consult a board-certified ENT for evaluation and management. BOTOX treatments will not have any effect on your sinus condition.
I hope this is helpful for you.
Chronic Sinusitis and Botox treatments
Botox and sinusitis
Receiving Botox should have no effect on a sinusitis. Botox works on the muscles of animation and therefore do not affect the sinuses in any way.
Chronic sinusitis and botox
Although you haven't indicated where on the face, or body, you're interested in treating with Botox, there shouldn't be a problem with the sinusitis. If there is an acute infective episode, then I would avoid it. Otherwise, the effect of Botox on the facial muscles should not exacerbate the chronic sinusitis. Please check with your physician who is treating you for this.
Botox and chronic sinusitis
Patients with chronic sinusitis may undergo Botox treatment as the two conditions have nothing to do with each other. Botox should not be injected into any sinuses and thus should have no impact on sinusitis.
Chronic sinusitis and Botox
I would discuss this with your ENT doctor before having these injections. Just to be sure. Usually Botox has no relationship to chronic sinus disease, but why not take the time and receive the blessing from your ENT? Regards.
