Recurring Sinus Infections
Sufferers of recurring sinus infections may experience a number of symptoms, including a runny/stuffy nose, sore throat, pressure or pain in the face or problems breathing through their nose. While all these symptoms do not need to be present or occur at the same time, they are usually a sign of a condition called sinusitis. In its acute form, sinusitis does not persist for longer than a few weeks, and relief from symptoms is usually achievable with medicinal treatment.
When sinus infections are recurring, it points to the chronic form of sinusitis which can persist for months at a time. There are various treatments available for chronic sinusitis from Dr. Greg Levitin which can address both the causes and symptoms in many cases. Severe allergies are one of the most common causes of recurring sinus infections. Dr. Greg Levitin is qualified to diagnosis and treat both conditions, giving patients a much brighter prognosis for finding permanent relief after attending his clinic.
It is impossible to pinpoint the exact cause of recurring sinus infections over the phone, so we would encourage you to make an appointment at one of our two offices. Dr. Greg Levitin has a location in New York, providing patients from all around the northeast access to excellence in care. If you have concerns about travel arrangements or insurance coverage, we are happy to discuss solutions when you call or make contact via our website.
Effective Diagnosis & Treatment
Even though a correlation between conditions such as allergies and recurring sinus infections exists, causation should never be assumed. The two may develop independently without one ever impacting the other. Therefore, it is detrimental to the patient’s chances of finding effective relief to take a blanket approach to treatment simply because one or more common symptoms are discovered during examination. Dr. Greg Levitin will carry out a comprehensive assessment, including getting a detailed medical history and exploring any potential congenital factors.
As the patient, you are encouraged to take part in shaping your own treatment plan by asking questions and utilizing the education and support that we provide. There are a number of effective and safe treatment options available, including Clarifix for chronic rhinitis, balloon sinuplasty and endoscopic sinus surgery. Dr. Levitin may recommend a combination of treatments to address different symptoms and improve the net benefits to overall health.
