Sinusitis is the inflammation of the hollow cavities around the cheek bones, found behind the nose and around the eyes. Although it is more common in the winter, sinusitis can last for months — even years — if not properly treated. Allergy sufferers are more likely to develop chronic sinusitis than people without allergies.

What is chronic sinusitis?

Illustration of chronic sinusitis
  • Sinus inflammation that lasts after a bacterial sinus infection
  • Inflammation predisposes you to further infections
  • May continue for years if not treated

Sinusitis symptoms include:

  • Facial pressure (especially around upper cheeks and nose)
  • Headaches
  • Fever
  • Postnasal drip and/or green or gray nasal discharge
  • Congestion
  • Cough

Sublingual immunotherapy can help patients with sinusitis who have underlying environmental allergies. By treating the allergic cause of sinus problems instead of just temporarily reducing symptoms through over-the-counter medications, allergy sufferers can change the course of their condition.

Research shows that patients treating allergies with sublingual immunotherapy reported fewer sinus infections, complications and can improve sinus surgery outcomes.

Fungal sinusitis

One of the most impressive benefits of using sublingual immunotherapy is managing fungal sinusitis.

Allergy drop immunotherapy is an effective, convenient way to treat fungal sinusitis, a common complication of chronic sinusitis. In some cases, this approach has significantly reduced patients’ sinus headaches, migraines precipitated by sinus inflammation, and cough due to postnasal drainage.
