What You Need to Know About Sinus and Allergy Treatment
While some allergic reactions may be very mild, having an allergy does increase your risk of other medical problems. Anaphylaxis becomes an increased risk, as it is an allergy-induced reaction. Patients who suffer from allergies are also more likely to have asthma or sinusitis which means it is important to see an ear, nose & throat (ENT) specialist. When you see our providers at Clear Lake Medical Center ENT, we will obtain a detailed medical history and conduct a full examination, carefully evaluating your symptoms. We may run tests, including possibly skin allergy tests and allergy blood tests, to aid in tailoring your treatment.
Sinusitis & Chronic Sinus Disease
Sinusitis is defined as the inflammation or swelling of the sinus’s tissue lining. While healthy sinuses are filled with air, they can become blocked and full of fluid. When this happens, germs are prone to grow, which can lead to an infection. Sinusitis can be characterized as either acute (which generally lasts around 10 days, but can last up to 4 weeks, usually occurring following a cold or the flu) or chronic (greater than 3 months in duration, usually resulting from constant nasal irritation by allergens or anatomic obstruction). If you are experiencing the symptoms of Sinusitis, talk to a professional at Clear Lake Medical Center ENT today.
