The treatment for a sinus infection focuses on relieving your symptoms. Dr. Gergits may recommend a saline nasal spray to clear your nasal passageways and over-the-counter or prescription nasal sprays containing corticosteroids, decongestants, or antihistamines.

If Dr. Gergits suspects you have allergies, he goes over your medical history to identify potential allergens, and he may perform allergy tests. Depending on the severity of your symptoms and your test results, you may be a good candidate for allergy shots or custom-made allergy drops.

Most viral sinus infections heal on their own, but you should seek medical care any time you need symptom relief or your symptoms worsen. To schedule an appointment, call Sinus & Allergy Wellness Center or use the online booking tool.
