  • Medications

    Your ear, nose, and throat (ENT) doctor may recommend a prescription or over-the-counter medication to help ease your symptoms. Antibiotics can treat the infection and are often the main treatment.

  • Nasal sprays 

    Nasal decongestant sprays can be used to treat nasal stuffiness. They should not be used longer than three days. With long-term use of nasal decongestant sprays, the nose can become dependent on them, and nasal stuffiness can worsen.

  • Nasal/sinus irrigation 

    Your ENT specialist may recommend a nasal/sinus irrigation  for your sinus disease. 

  • Surgery 

    With recent advances in technology, ENT surgeons can now perform endoscopic sinus surgery  entirely through the nose, without face or mouth incisions. Alternately, your ENT specialist may recommend sinus surgery using a balloon catheter  to help manage your sinus condition. When minimally invasive surgery is not an option, the ENT surgeon may need to perform sinus surgery via an external approach.


  • Nasal endoscopy 

    Your ENT doctor inserts a thin, flexible tube (endoscope) with a tiny camera to visually inspect the inside of the sinuses. This test is more likely to be used in the case of chronic (ongoing) sinus disease.

  • Imaging 

    Images obtained from computerized tomography (CT) scan or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can help your doctor see details of your sinuses and nasal passages. These tests are more likely to be used in the case of chronic (ongoing) sinus disease.

  • Nasal and sinus cultures 

    When your sinus disease is long lasting (chronic) and does not respond to treatment, your ENT specialist may recommend taking a culture (tissue sample) from the nasal area or sinuses to further assess the sinus disease.

  • Allergy testing

    Your ENT specialist may order an allergy  skin test, if they think that allergies may have caused your sinus disease. This test may help determine the allergen that’s causing the sinus disease.
