Sinus & Allergies

Breathe a sigh of relief as our skilled ENT specialists provide expert care for sinus issues and allergies.

Understanding Sinuses

Sinuses are air-filled cavities within the skull that have a profound impact on our overall respiratory function.


There are four pairs of sinuses, each located in different areas of the skull and face.

  • Frontal Sinuses: Above the eyes in the forehead region.

  • Maxillary Sinuses: In the cheekbones on either side of the nose.

  • Ethmoid Sinuses: Between the eyes, behind the bridge of the nose.

  • Sphenoid Sinuses: Deep within the skull, behind the ethmoid sinuses.

These sinuses play crucial roles in filtering air, moistening the respiratory tract, contributing to vocal resonance, and reducing the weight of the skull.

When the sinuses become infected or inflamed, it can lead to various symptoms such as:

sinus congestion

a feeling of fullness or blockage in the nasal passages

nasal discharge

thick, discolored mucus

facial pain or pressure

often felt in the forehead, cheeks, and around the eyes


sinus inflammation can cause aches in the frontal area

reduced sense of smell or taste

inflamed sinuses can affect the senses

Allergies & their Impact

Allergies occur when the immune system reacts to allergens such as pollen, dust mites, pet dander, or mold.

When allergens are inhaled, they can trigger an allergic reaction, leading to inflammation in the nasal passages and sinuses. This inflammation can cause or worsen sinus issues, resulting in symptoms similar to those of sinusitis.

Allergies can lead to sinus inflammation, exacerbating symptoms and affecting overall quality of life.


While it varies from case to case, a person with allergies may exhibit some of the following common symptoms:


frequent and repetitive sneezing

runny or stuffy nose

increased mucus production

skin reactions

irritation such as hives, eczema, or itchiness

itchy or watery eyes

irritation, itchiness, or redness of the eyes

shortness of breath

chest tightness or difficulty of breathing

It's important to note that allergy symptoms can vary from person to person and may depend on the type of allergen causing the reaction. If you suspect you have allergies, consult with a medical professional to determine your specific triggers and develop a tailored treatment plan.
