ALLERGY DOCTORS IN SOUTH JERSEY

Sinus and allergy disorders are among the most common issues affecting millions of people and are often mistaken for one another.

At Advanced ENT & Allergy our physicians have a long history of treating sinus and allergy disorders. Our goal is to determine the specific disorder that is affecting you, address the needed symptom relief, and create the appropriate treatment plan to keep you healthy all year long.

A sinus infection, also called sinusitis, occurs when viruses or bacteria infect the sinuses, often during a cold, and begin to multiply. The infection causes your sinuses to swell and become inflamed. The swelling makes it hard for your sinuses to drain, causing a buildup of mucus. You become congested and have trouble breathing through your nose. You may also experience thick nasal discharge, a sore throat, cough, headache, pain, pressure, or fullness in your face, head or around the eyes.

Chronic Sinusitis lasts for 12 weeks or longer and is usually caused by prolonged inflammation, rather than a longstanding infectionIt is important for your physician to look for other factors that can go along with chronic sinusitis that possibly make the problem worse, and have them treated also. Some of these factors are allergies, nasal polyps, asthma, and problems with the body’s ability to fight infections.

Allergies can produce the same cold-like symptoms as a sinus infection, including sinus pressure, runny nose, and congestion. However, the condition itself, called allergic rhinitis, is different. Allergic rhinitis is triggered by airborne irritants such as pollen or dander. The reaction happens when a chemical called histamine is released by your immune system causing skin redness and swollen tissues. Nasal itching, repetitive sneezing, and itchy eyes are also common symptoms of allergic rhinitis and can help you determine whether your symptoms are sinus or allergy related. Itchiness is a rare symptom of a sinus infection. If your symptoms become prevalent during certain times of the year, you may be suffering from seasonal allergies. Grass, pollen, and mold are the most common triggers of seasonal allergies.

If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please dial 911 or your local emergency number for immediate assistance.
