It’s an annual rite of passage for those who suffer from seasonal allergies: blocked sinuses, loss of sense of smell, recurring headaches and a feeling of “pressure” on the face.
Yes, it’s sinus season. Sinusitis affects approximately 37 million people in the U.S. each year, but we’ve got a state-of-the-art method for treating this common ailment.
What is sinusitis?
Sinusitis is an inflammation of the sinus lining caused by bacterial, viral and/or fungal infections; as well as structural issues resulting in blockages of the sinus opening. If the sinus opening is closed, normal mucus drainage may not occur, which can lead to infection and inflammation of the sinuses.
What are the symptoms of sinusitis?
• Facial pain, pressure
• Nasal congestion or fullness
• Difficulty breathing through the nose
• Discharge of yellow or green mucus from the nose
• Tooth pain
• Loss of smell or taste
• Sore throat
• Bad breath
If treatment with antibiotics for more than three weeks fails to relieve symptoms, or if symptoms recur more than four times per year, surgery is an option.
