Can chronic sinus infections be triggered by household allergens?

0

I have been experiencing a sinus infection that has been treated with rounds and rounds on antibiotics, but still is reoccurring. I have tried to pin-point the cause and all the I have yet to explore was the possibility of household irritants. Can chronic sinus infections be triggered by household allergens?

Hi there,

Thanks for your question.

Sinuses are filled with air, but when sinuses become blocked and filled with fluid, germs and/or bacteria form which result in infection. Conditions that can cause sinus blockage include:

– The common cold
– Allergic rhinitis
– Nasal polyps
– Deviated septum
