Sinusitis

Sinusitis is an infection of any of the tissues lining the various sinus pockets around the face. This common swelling can be from a cold, an allergic reaction, polyps, or a deviated septum. While some conditions, like a cold, will remedy themselves, others need medical treatment. Symptoms of sinusitis include:

  • A runny nose that will not go away
  • Having two or more sinus infections in a year
  • Pressure and pain in your face, cheekbones, nose, or forehead
  • Thick or discolored drainage from your nose
  • Loss of smell
  • And other difficulties with nasal and sinus passageways

Nasal Obstruction

A nasal obstruction is typically caused by a common nose or sinus issue, such as enlarged adenoids or nasal allergies. Typical symptoms include:

  • A nasally voice
  • Frequent runny nose
  • Breathing mostly through the mouth
  • Recurring sinus infections

Rhinitis

Rhinitis causes nasal swelling, congestion, runny noses, itchy and watery eyes, and scratchy throats. Individuals may experience a few or all of these symptoms depending on the severity and reason for rhinitis. The condition can be an acute or chronic allergic reaction and is attributed to various factors, including:

  • Weather
  • Pollen
  • Dust mites
  • Mold
  • Animal dander
  • Smoke
  • Medications
  • Food
  • Environmental changes

Deviated Septum

The nose is divided down the middle by the septum, which is made up of bone and cartilage. Ideally, the left and right sides of the nose are divided equally. However, as many as 80% of the population have a septum that is off-center, and this condition is called a deviated septum. A slight deviation may not be noticeable, but some cases that are more severe can cause health problems for individuals and may require surgery. Side effects of a deviated septum include:

  • Difficulty breathing through one or both sides of the nose
  • Frequent sinus infections
  • Nosebleeds
  • Mouth-breathing during sleep in adults

Inferior Turbinate Reduction

The inside walls of the nasal cavity are lined with fleshy structures called turbinates. Their job is to warm and moisturize the air in your nose. Sometimes they become swollen and usually heal themselves. However, patients who have enlarged turbinates from an infection or other nasal complication require surgery to have them reduced and allow for easier breathing and airflow. Reasons a person might need turbinate reduction surgery could be due to:

  • Allergies
  • Infections
  • Weather changes
  • Hormonal changes
  • Stress
  • Medications

Nasal Polyps

Nasal polyps are soft, non-cancerous growths that form along the nose bone. It is also called chronic rhinosinusitis, and the cause of these growths is unknown. Common symptoms of nasal polyps include:

  • Congestion
  • Nasal discharge
  • Mucus in the throat
  • Loss of smell
  • Pain in areas of the face
