The symptoms of sinus infections, nasal problems and sinus allergies can greatly affect your quality of life. Sneezing, congestion, runny nose, coughing and itchy throat are all typical of these conditions. Acute sinus infections, however, more commonly include sinus headaches, facial pain, constant sinus pressure and fever. Both chronic and acute sinus infections require medical care. In some cases, nasal and sinus troubles are the result of allergies, viruses, deviated septum, nasal blockage or nasal polyps.

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned above, don't just assume they will go away on their own or are nothing to worry about. Look to Allergy & Asthma Associates of Southern California for the specialized care you need. Our board-certified and fellowship-trained specialists can accurately diagnose and provide effective chronic sinusitis treatment.
An accurate diagnosis is key
At first, it is difficult to tell the difference between sinus problems, allergies and a common cold because they each share many of the same symptoms. If you experience sinus problems for more than 12 weeks, you may have chronic sinusitis. This condition can also occur if you suffer from allergic rhinitis, or hay fever. One of our allergy doctors will conduct specialized in-office tests to determine your chronic sinusitis causes. Once a diagnosis is made, treatment will be recommended based on your individual chronic sinusitis symptoms. Our treatment options for sinus-related conditions and sinus allergies include antibiotics, nasal sprays, decongestants, antihistamines, allergy shots (immunotherapy) and oral immunotherapy.
If your sinus problem requires care outside that of an allergy and immunology specialist, you will be referred to the appropriate physician for treatment. In some cases, chronic sinusitis surgery may be necessary.
