Medical Recommendations for Sinusitis
Causes of chronic inflammation
Allergies are a common cause of chronic inflammation and often result in infection of the sinuses. Commonly overlooked and often worsening over time, sinusitis may result in other complications including worsening asthma, gastrointestinal distress, and skin problems. Effective treatment usually requires appropriate medication to allow normal sinus drainage and healing, prolonged courses of antibiotics, and the recognition of and management important triggering allergens. Understanding the allergic triggers results in more effective treatment, even in those who have failed sinus surgery.
