How is allergic rhinitis linked to sinusitis?

    Monday, 18 April 2011 00:00  Blog

Allergic rhinitis can lead to recurrent or chronic sinusitis. The nasal obstruction and inflammation associated with allergic rhinitis interrupts the normal clearing of mucus from nasal passages, causing the sinus cavities to become clogged with mucus and making it difficult to breathe.

Common symptoms include:

  • Thick yellowish/green nasal discharge
  • Headache
  • Facial pain
  • Nasal congestion
  • Loss of smell
  • Fatigue
  • Fever 

Sinusitis may be considered acute (lasting less than 4 weeks), subacute (four to eight weeks), chronic (eight weeks or longer) or recurrent (three or more episodes of acute sinusitis per year).
