Causes of chronic inflammation

Allergies are a common cause of chronic inflammation and infection of the sinuses. Commonly overlooked and often worsens overtime, sinusitis may result in other complications including worsening asthma, gastrointestinal distress and skin problems. Effective treatment usually requires appropriate medication to allow normal sinus drainage and healing, prolonged courses of antibiotics and recognition of important allergens. Understanding the allergic triggers results in more effective treatment, even in those who have failed sinus surgery.
