Sinusitis is an inflammatory condition of the sinus passages behind and around the nose. It can cause irritation of the nose and eyes, as well as headaches and other troublesome symptoms. The sinuses are often effected during certain times of the year when allergies are more common, particularly in Chicago.
Treatment can be directed towards the specific cause afflicting the sinuses, and often provide quick relief of symptoms. Treatment might include nose sprays or medications to take by mouth. Sometimes, your doctor at Chicago Allergy & Asthma may prescribe a short course of antibiotics to help fight off any infection in the sinuses as well.
