Phoenix Sinus Infection Treatment

San Tan Allergy & Asthma

Many patients with allergies will have problems with recurrent sinus infections, also known as sinusitis.

Sinuses are air-filled cavities inside your skull that normally function to warm and humidify the air that you breathe in. The cavities are lined with the same type of tissue that lines your nasal passages and as such are prone to the same kind of inflammation that can occur with nasal allergies or allergic rhinitis.

If the sinuses become too inflamed and too much mucous builds up inside the sinuses, infection can occur. Sinus infections are commonly caused by bacteria, although molds and fungus can also cause infection especially in patients with allergies to certain types of molds (known as allergic fungal sinusitis). Viruses can also contribute to sinus infections which is why your doctor may not want to prescribe an antibiotic unless you have had symptoms for more than 10 days (the typical duration of a viral infection is about a week).

Common Symptoms of Sinusitis

Symptoms of sinusitis include pressure inside the head, usually beneath or above the eyes, tenderness of the upper teeth, fatigue, bad breath, drainage of mucous into the back of the throat, nasal congestion and occasionally headache. Some patients who have had chronic sinus problems may also describe a loss of sense of taste or smell, especially if they develop polyps inside their nasal cavities. Polyps are benign (non-cancerous) outgrowths of inflammatory tissue into the sinus cavities.

Extensive Experience in Managing Sinus Problems

The treatment of sinusitis depends on the factors that caused it. The providers at San Tan Allergy and Asthma have extensive experience in managing sinus problems and often work closely with ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialists to provide patients with sinus problems the relief they seek. If allergies are a cause, immunotherapy (allergy shots) may be a worthwhile treatment to explore. Some patients have an allergy to aspirin or other anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen or NSAIDs that can contribute to their sinus difficulties. The providers at San Tan Allergy & Asthma do offer a treatment specifically designed to treat chronic sinus disease associated with this type of allergy.
