Learn about treatment options for sinusitis infection in Crystal Lake, IL area practice

At Advanced Allergy and Asthma Associates, our team of professionals are able to provide a wide range of treatment options for patients who are dealing with certain conditions, including that of sinusitis. This infection can develop in patients who have severe allergies in the area of Crystal Lake, IL.

What is sinusitis?

Sinusitis is sometimes referred to as a sinus infection. There are sinus cavities that reside in the center of the facial area that hold mucus. When these nasal passages become inflamed and infected, this can result in sinusitis. This condition can be extremely painful for many due to the pressure caused by it. Acute sinusitis is sometimes associated with the common cold and will typically resolve itself in less than two weeks. However, sometimes the condition is caused by bacteria that can only be addressed with proper treatment.

Treatment for sinusitis

For sinusitis caused by bacteria, the only treatment to address it is that of antibiotics. Antibiotics can control the infection by treating the bacteria and bringing the patient back to health. Antibiotics are typically administered as an oral pharmaceutical that requires a prescription by a doctor, which can be obtained by visiting the team at our practice for a proper diagnosis and prescription.

If you notice any of the following concerns, it may be time to see a doctor at our practice for an evaluation:

  • Headache
