Sinusitis Return to Conditions Treated

  • Inflammation of the lining of the sinuses and nose.
  • Acute sinusitis is typically caused by viral infections but can also be caused by bacterial and fungal infections.
  • Symptoms include: nasal congestion and blockage, thick yellow-green discharge from the nose, pain in the teeth and face, fever, fatigue, cough, difficulty or inability to smell, ear pressure or fullness, headache, and bad breath.
  • Sometimes allergies contribute to recurrent acute and chronic sinusitis.
  • Allergies cause chronic inflammation which can increase the risk for sinusitis when left untreated.
  • If allergies are well controlled, sinus infections may decrease without any other intervention, including surgery.
  • Allergists help to identify allergens and customize treatment which can decrease the need for recurrent antibiotic treatment as well as possibly preventing any surgical intervention.
