Sinus Problems and Treatments

For patients suffering from sinus problems, including headaches and drainage, discomfort can be a daily challenge. Sinus problems can be made worse by allergies, and although they are technically separate diagnoses, their treatments may be interrelated.

The Sierra Nevada ENT team takes a comprehensive approach to resolving or managing nasal and sinus problems by creating an individualized treatment plan. Beginning with a physical exam and extensive interview about your sinus symptoms and history, our goal is to formulate a treatment plan to provide you relief from symptoms.

Many options exist for treating nasal and sinus issues. If they are a result of an allergic reaction, antihistamines or nasal sprays may be all that is needed. If allergy complaints are persistent or severe, a course of immunotherapy (allergy injections) and/or environmental control may be required.
