Chronic Sinus Infections
Painful Sinus Infections Happening Way Too Often?
Often, sinus infections can be so painful that they can make it difficult to go about a normal day. No big deal, right? The infection will clear up in a few days and you can get back to normal. This isn’t always the case.
People who suffer from chronic sinus infections may have trouble getting long-term relief from their pain. If you’re suffering from chronic sinus infections, you will likely have an infection that lasts several weeks and occurs several times a year.

What are Chronic Sinus Infections (Sinusitis)?
Chronic sinus infections are sinus infections that last for several weeks at a time while also occurring several times a year. It can be difficult for someone with sinusitis to get long-term relief because they have an underlying cause that results in more frequent infections.
Symptoms of chronic sinus infection include:
- Runny Nose
- Facial Pain & Pressure
- Decreased Sense of Smell
What Can You Do About It? Chronic Sinusitis Treatment
When it comes to chronic sinus pain, it’s important to treat the underlying cause of your infection. Whether the cause of your chronic infections is allergies, a nasal blockage, or any other issue, you can get an in-depth treatment plan from Exhale Sinus, TMJ, Headache & Sleep, that includes one or a combination of the following:
At-Home Treatment & Medications
Some at-home treatments for chronic sinusitis include:
- Humidifiers or Steam
- Nasal Sprays
- Staying Hydrated
- Nasal Rinses
- Antibiotics (for bacterial infections)
At-home treatments can be utilized in a pinch but if you’re someone who suffers from severe infections several times a year you may need to target the true underlying cause with a long-term solution.
Often, the true underlying cause of chronic sinus issues is a narrow or blocked sinus passage. We offer several long-term solutions for chronic issues.
Traditional Sinus Surgery
In the past, endoscopic sinus surgery was the only option for treating chronic sinus pain long-term. It involves the removal of bones or tissue in the nasal cavities while under total anesthesia. While this is still used for severe cases, we now have better minimally invasive options that we can use right in the comfort of the office.
Balloon Sinuplasty is an in-office procedure that can gently open your sinus cavities and provide you with lasting relief without the need for surgery. There is no removal of bone and most people can get back to normal activities in a day or two.
Other Minimally Invasive Sinus Procedures
If you want to get long-term relief from your sinus pain without surgery, our minimally invasive in-office procedures may be right for you. Our in-office procedures are safe, effective, and come with minimal recovery time. Some of our other in-office procedures include RhinAer, Sinuva, and more.
Don’t Continue Living in Pain
Our patients sometimes get to the point in their lives where they just accept that there isn’t anything they can do about chronic sinus pain. That just isn’t true. We understand living with constant sinus pain can be demoralizing but long-term relief is possible.I Want to Schedule an Appointment
