Here at Del Rey Sinus and Allergy, we are here to help you and come up with the best plan of action.
When your sinuses get inflamed; the area of your sinuses, inside your forehead, cheekbones and behind the bridge of your nose, they swell and make more mucus and the channels that drain them can become blocked. This leads to that build-up of pressure that feels like a headache.
Allergies and other allergic reactions can contribute to the onset of sinusitis. Sinusitis occurs when allergies trigger swelling in your sinus and nasal mucous linings, which causes sinus passages to close up. Bacteria becomes trapped in the upper airway and bacteria in the sinuses can cause a sinus infection. Los Angeles allergy doctor, Dr. Farhad Sigari can help.
The nasal passage is very important to breathing. About 70% of airflow to the lungs is from nasal breathing, so if your nasal passages are blocked, you may have trouble breathing and sleeping.
