Allergic & Chronic Sinusitis

Sinusitis is inflammation of your sinuses, which are pockets of air-filled cavities around your nose that produce mucus. Sinusitis can cause headache, runny nose, sore throat or cough. Many people who experience sinusitis feel like the area around their nose and forehead is pressurized.

Sinusitis has many causes, including allergies, but usually does not occur without rhinitis, a swelling of your nasal passages. It can be confusing to determine whether you are experiencing sinusitis, a cold or sinusitis from another cause, such as a blockage or structural problem in your airways.

When you breathe in a substance you are allergic to, such as pollen, the pollen often enters your nose, eyes and sinuses. Your immune system then reacts to the presence of the allergen, causing these areas to swell and produce more mucus than usual. You may also experience conjunctivitis, rhinitis or sinusitis or a combination of the three.

Indiana University Health physicians provide relief from sinusitis and other conditions caused by allergies. Based on the results of comprehensive allergy testing, our physicians develop personalized treatment plans to treat your allergy symptoms. Our highly skilled physicians ensure you understand how to avoid allergens and use your medicines correctly to properly manage your allergies and feel your best every day.
