Sinus & Allergies: Breathe Easy – Expert Sinus and Allergy Help is Right Here
When blockages occur in the sinuses – the spaces around the eyes, nose and cheekbones – mucus fails to drain and an infection may occur. The resulting sinusitis is often painful.
Sinusitis sufferers may experience a variety of symptoms, the most common of which are:
- Facial pain, pressure, congestion or fullness
- Discharge of yellow or green mucus from the nose
- Loss of the sense of smell or taste
- Bad breath
- Difficulty breathing through the nose
- Teeth pain
- Sore throat
Allergies are abnormal reactions to external stimulants, such as pollen, chemicals or pet dander. And while allergies may not be painful, they require constant attention and cause severe lifestyle disruptions.
Common allergy symptoms include:
- Itching around the eyes and nose
- Watery eyes
- Nasal congestion
Neither sinus nor allergy conditions are life-threatening, but their impact on your daily life can be highly disruptive.
