Common Nasal and Sinus Problems
Sinusitis (rhinosinusitis) is common in the United States, affecting up to 30% of people each year. It occurs when the sinuses and nose cannot drain because they have become blocked. Sinusitis can progress following a cold, upper respiratory infection, or allergic reaction. Environmental irritants, certain medical conditions, and structural abnormalities, such as nasal polyps, a deviated septum, or nasal tumors, can contribute to sinusitis.
Sinusitis causes pressure and pain in the head and face. Other symptoms include: nasal congestion, nasal discharge, coughing, fever, and a sore throat. Red River ENT Associates offer a variety of treatments for nasal and sinus problems. Medications, lifestyle modifications, or surgery to correct structural disorders are all viable options. Our Alexandria specialists will work with you to plan and manage all forms of treatment based on your individual needs.
