Allergic rhinitis is a hyperactivity of the immune system that causes inflammation of the nasal and sinus cavities known colloquially as “hay fever.” Exposure to normal air particulates such as dust, mold, pollen, and animal dander act as “allergens” in patients with allergic rhinitis, triggering the release of inflammatory chemicals within the nose and sinuses.
Acute sinusitis is a bacterial infection of the sinuses lasting longer than 2 weeks (common cold). Symptoms of acute sinusitis are facial pressure, discolored nasal drainage, nasal obstruction, and decreased sense of smell. Treatment of an acute sinus infection usually consists of an oral antibiotic but may also include saline rinses, oral and topical decongestants, and oral or topical steroids. Acute sinus infections that do not respond to several courses of antibiotics or that have severe complications may require endoscopic sinus surgery.

Initial Los Angeles sinus treatment from Dr. Wu includes oral antihistamines, nasal steroid sprays, nasal antihistamine sprays, and saline rinses. Failure of initial medical therapy may require allergy testing and allergy shots by an allergist or surgery depending on he clinical circumstances.
