Sinusitis, commonly called a sinus infection, refers to the inflammation, swelling, and infection of the sinus cavities. Millions of people have suffered from sinusitis at some point, and some of them suffer from chronic sinus infections that last longer than eight weeks. These individuals should see an allergy doctor for the effective treatment they need to restore quality of life.
Some patients are at a higher risk of chronic sinusitis, including those who also suffer from allergic rhinitis. Having nasal polyps can also contribute. A sinus infection causes symptoms similar to those of a severe cold. Patients may experience facial pain, headaches, runny nose, and nasal congestion.
