Sinusitis describes inflammation in the sinus cavity, the air-filled spaces behind your eyes. Sinusitis can be acute or chronic, depending on how often your symptoms arise and how severe they are.
Acute sinusitis describes sinus inflammation that lasts for several weeks before getting better. This condition is most often caused by a cold.
Chronic sinusitis describes inflammation in your sinuses that lasts 12 weeks or longer. The persistent inflammation can be caused by nasal polyps, hay fever, a deviated septum, and other medical conditions.
Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Associates offers diagnostic evaluation and customized treatment for acute and chronic sinusitis in adults and children. The team uses evidence-based therapies to ease your existing symptoms and prevent severe sinus infections and other complications.
You should schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Associates if you have sinusitis symptoms that last more than a week or are severe enough to interfere with your routine.

If these don’t work or you need help managing chronic sinusitis, the Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Associates team could recommend:
If you have nasal polyps, a deviated septum, or other obstruction that blocks mucus drainage from your sinuses, you could be a candidate for surgery.
