Sinusitis should be treated by Allergy & Asthma Consultants as soon as possible. Until remedied, the symptoms of sinusitis (see below) rarely subside until remedied.
In some cases, untreated sinusitis leads to much more serious infections and diseases such as meningitis, a brain abscess, or a viral infection.
Your health is far too important to risk, so contact any of our four metro Atlanta locations in Sandy Springs, Roswell, Duluth or Cumming, Georgia so that we may evaluate your sinusitis symptoms.

A sinus infection is a growth in the sinuses, referred to as nasal polyps. Also present is swelling of the lining of the sinuses. Sinus infection, or sinusitis is also called rhinosinusitis, a condition which affects children and adults alike.
Once your sinusitis is diagnosed at Allergy & Asthma Consultants, the allergist will prescribe medications to relieve your symptoms and treat the infection.
