Do you have an itchy runny nose; itching palate and throat; burning, tearing, and itching eyes?
You probably are suffering from hay fever.
Have you used nasal sprays, antihistamines, and decongestants without relief during the pollen season?
Your medication may need changing. If you are using a over-the-counter nasal spray, such as Afrin®, it may be making you worse. You can benefit from skin testing and allergy shots.
Is your nose still congested or your head hurting in spite of treating your hay fever?
It could be sinusitis caused by a bacterial infection which needs antibiotics.
Allergic rhinitis or hay fever causes the nasal passages to swell which prevents the sinuses around your eyes and nose from draining properly. Nasal allergies can lead to the complication of sinusitis.We offer a sinus mini CT Scan in our office which helps us make a quick determination concerning sinus disease.
