How inflamed sinuses can make your allergy symptoms worse

Inflamed or swollen sinuses — also known as sinusitis or sinus infections — can lead to buildup in your sinus pathways that can exacerbate severe allergy symptoms. Taking over-the-counter allergy relief medication may keep your symptoms at bay, but it can’t help with the underlying cause(s) of your sinusitis.

Does balloon sinuplasty help with allergies? Balloon sinuplasty is a simple, lasting, and effective symptom relief treatment for allergies in Houston. Though not a cure for allergies, most patients see a marked improvement in their allergy symptoms after treating their sinusitis with balloon sinuplasty.

If you experience trouble breathing at night, severe headaches, or other allergy symptoms such as allergy-related fatigue, balloon sinuplasty for allergies can help provide you with both sinusitis relief and allergy symptom relief.
