Answer by  Moma123 (1043)

Sinusitis is caused due to infection, allergy and weak immune system. There are many bacteria and viruses that infect sinus, if the immune system is not strong enough. It causes the increased inflamation of the nasal mucosa. The other causes for sinusitis are deviated septum, nasal polyps and small sinus ostia. Pseudomonas usually target the respiratory tract.

You may as well ask, "How do you catch a cold?" At some point you came into contact with a pseudomonas bacteria. This is easier than you might otherwise think. Pseudomonas can be found on food, especially eggs, milk, meat, and fish, counters, doorknobs... After touching it you most likely then touched your face fromthe it migrated to the sinuses.

Pseudomonas infections in your sinuses are most likely caused by being in close proximity to spoiled dairy products and other food (even soap!) which this bacterium thrives on.

The Pseudomonas is a natrually occuring bacteria. It typically targets the respiatory tack, and those with compromised immune systems are more susceptible.
