Although allergies can’t be cured, symptoms can be controlled with avoidance measures and medication and allergy management when deemed necessary.
For people who suffer from seasonal allergies, you may benefit from our allergy management program offered at Rejuvenate Wellness and MedSpa. We will evaluate your medical history and perform an ENT exam at the initial visit. If indicated, you can then get a sinus cocktail injection (steroid + Benadryl) every 3-4 months as needed. $99
Sinus cocktail is $25 each visit after that.
Acute Sinusitis Overview
Rhinosinusitis, or sinusitis as it is also known, is an inflammation (swelling) of the sinuses and nose. Sinuses are hollow areas within the facial bones that are connected to a nasal opening. Similar to the inside of the nose, the sinuses are lined with mucous membranes.
Sinusitis can be acute or chronic. Inflammation that lasts less than four weeks is called acute sinusitis; subacute sinusitis lasts from four to 12 weeks, and chronic sinusitis lasts for more than 12 weeks. Many people suffer from acute sinusitis.
Acute Sinusitis Causes
A viral infection associated with a common cold is the most common cause of acute sinusitis. This condition is also known as viral sinusitis. As a complication of viral sinusitis, bacterial sinusitis occurs much less frequently, only in 0.5 to 2 percent of cases.
Most sinusitis patients do not need antibiotics as antibiotics are effective only against bacterial infections, not viral infections. Taking antibiotics for nonbacterial sinusitis would put them at risk of developing side effects associated with the medication and developing antibiotic resistance. Almost all adults with normal immune systems can clear bacterial infections without antibiotics.
