Sinusitis refers to a sinus infection, a problem that develops when mucus builds up inside the sinuses. Membranes inside each sinus produce mucus that drains into the nasal passages. When the membranes become inflamed, however, they block the opening, trapping mucus inside the sinus cavities, and leading to an infection.
Sinusitis is usually caused by allergies or when viruses spread to your sinuses. Structural issues in your nose, such as enlarged turbinates, a deviated septum, or polyps, can also block the openings to your sinuses, preventing mucus from draining properly.
Look for these common symptoms of a sinus infection:

Chronic sinus infections are linked to asthma. Seeking appropriate treatment of your sinus infection at Cure Allergy Clinic often improves the symptoms of asthma.

You may feel like it's improving, but then your full-blown symptoms come right back. Chronic sinusitis may linger on for months at a time without effective care at Cure Allergy Clinic.
