Inflammation of the paranasal sinuses, hollow areas of the skull in the cheekbones, forehead and behind the nose is called sinusitis. Sinusitis can be acute or chronic and can be caused by infectious agents, allergies or their combination. It is very common and affects 20 – 30 million Americans a year. The typical symptoms include facial pressure or in the forehead, a stuffy nose, nasal drainage, post-nasal drip, cough, head congestion, ear fullness and/or a headache.
Symptoms may also include a toothache, tiredness and, occasionally, a fever. Chronic sinusitis may manifest by unrelenting postnasal drainage, cough and/or frequent exacerbation of asthma symptoms. Our specialists in the Allergy and Asthma Clinical Centers are very well trained to evaluate sinus problems in relation to allergic diseases by performing allergy testing and precise imaging studies of the sinuses. They will use comprehensive therapeutic approaches to alleviate and eliminate your sinus symptoms and the underlying conditions.
