What Causes Sinus Problems?
Sinus conditions may be caused by deformities in your nose and sinus cavity, growths, fractures, improper healing and allergies. Your sinuses are precisely formed to enable breathing, add moisture and warmth to the air and filter out contaminants. Unfortunately, the role of the sinuses in protecting you from bacteria and viruses is precisely why sinus problems and allergies are so common amongst adults and children.
How are Sinus Problems and Allergies Treated?
Our ENT specialists remain abreast of advances in treatment for sinus problems and allergies. We may recommend over-the-counter or prescription medication, lifestyle changes, and other remedies. In some cases, though, surgery is the most effective option for treatment.
Can I Reduce My Risk for Developing Sinus Conditions and Allergies?
Some lifestyle choices do increase your risk of developing sinus conditions and allergies, such as smoking. In most cases, though, the cause of sinus conditions and allergies varies by patient. Our ENT physicians are experts in identifying the triggers and cause of your sinus condition and allergies. You are advised as to any changes you can make to reduce your risk.
