Healthy Sinus

One of the most common manifestations of allergies is allergic rhinitis and sinusitis (hay fever). These present with nasal congestion, facial pressure and thick nasal discharge that sometimes trigger cough.

Our sinuses are cavities within our facial bones, located behind the nose, around the eyes and in the cheekbones. When these sinuses become inflamed due to allergies, blockage can cause chronic symptoms and/or infections.

Our allergists will help you by diagnosing the nature of the rhinitis/sinusitis and by treating the allergies. Avoiding triggers, prescribing medications, and providing allergy desensitization or “allergy shots” are parts of our comprehensive treatment plan. Common indoor allergens include dust mites, molds or animal dander while pollens are the main outdoor ones. Properly managing allergies can sometimes prevent the need for surgery.
