Sinus & Allergy Care Clinic Tomball
Allergies occur when your body overacts to allergens, and it is this overreaction that causes symptoms. There are two forms of allergies.
Types of Allergies
- Seasonal—Caused by allergy to various pollen and mold spores in the air. These symptoms generally occur spring, late summer, and fall.
- Perennial—Caused by other allergens such as pet dander or hair, mold, dust mites. These symptoms occur year-round.
Nasal and sinus passages become swollen, congested, and inflamed trying to flush out allergens that trigger allergies. Allergies have been linked to chronic sinus infections.
Common Symptoms of Allergies and Sinus Infections
Allergy symptoms, which depend on the substance involved, can affect your airways, sinuses and nasal passages, skin, and digestive system. Allergic reactions can range from mild to severe and vary person to person.
The following are some symptoms of allergies:
- Itching (mostly eyes, nose, mouth, throat, and skin)
- Runny and/or stuffy nose
- Sinus pressure
- Watery, red, and/or swollen eyes
- Sore throat
Allergies can cause sinus infections, which causes the inflammation of one of your sinuses. The following are some symptoms of sinus infections:
- Postnasal drip
- Pressure or pain in your cheeks, forehead, nose, and between the eyes
