WHAT ARE ALLERGIES, ASTHMA, AND SINUS INFECTIONS?
Allergies, asthma, and sinus infections (sinusitis) are common conditions that occur when the body’s immune system is attempting to fight inflammation caused by an irritant or allergen. Patients may have allergies to foods or environmental factors that can cause mild to life-threatening results. Asthma can be triggered by allergies, exercise, or other factors and impacts normal breathing function. Sinus infections are an inflammation of the nasal cavities and may result from allergies, viruses, or other conditions. Whether allergies, asthma, and sinus infections occur independently or as a result of each other, it is important to get the care needed to protect your health. Horizon Medical Center proudly offers trusted allergy, asthma, and sinus care to Schaumburg, IL patients. Contact our office today to schedule a consultation with one of our primary care physicians.
HOW ARE ALLERGIES, ASTHMA, AND SINUSITIS TREATED?
Our doctors may perform allergy testing, lung function tests, x-rays, or other diagnostic screenings to evaluate for allergies, asthma, or sinusitis conditions. Treatments will be customized for your individual needs and will be based on the results of your tests and your symptoms. Allergies may be treated with medications or allergy shots (to build immunity to allergens) while asthma may be managed with inhalers, breathing treatments, or lifestyle changes. In many cases, sinus infections can be resolved with antibiotics or other prescription medications. As a comprehensive family medicine practice, Horizon Medical Center provides screenings and treatments for allergies, asthma, and sinus infections all under one roof.
