Sinus Issues

We all experience sinus issues like nasal congestion or a runny nose from time to time, but if you are experiencing these in combination with facial pressure, loss of smell or taste, or colored nasal discharge – lasting longer than a month – you may have a more serious condition.

Depending on your symptoms, an ear, nose and throat specialist, allergist or your primary care physician may prescribe antibiotics or suggest nasal irrigations or sprays. If symptoms persist, a longer course of antibiotics or oral steroids may be used. If these methods are unsuccessful, your physician will likely refer you to a head and neck surgeon.
