Allergies, Asthma, and Sinus Care
Sinuses are air-filled spaces that help moisten the air we intake. Humans have 4 pairs of these spaces, located on the sides of the nose, in the forehead, at the back of the nasal cavity, and behind the eyes. Our sinuses also trap dust and germs by producing blocking mucus. When the sinuses are inflamed, the openings that drain become blocked, and thus infection can occur.
Sinusitis is an inflammation in the sinuses which hinders the mucus from properly draining. The lack of drainage can lead to a buildup which can cause bacterial growth and infection. Symptoms of sinusitis include labored breathing, pain in the sinuses, headaches, fever, fatigue, and nasal discharge. If sinusitis is left untreated, it can lead to extensive and serious medical problems.
“I need to see a doctor about my sinuses!” If you are experiencing the symptoms of sinusitis, or you have any concerns at all about your sinuses, you should contact Dr. Peter J. Parker immediately. Dr. Parker is an expert in allergy, asthma, and sinus care, and is certified from the American Board of Allergy and Immunology. He has been helping patients with their sinuses issues for many years.
