When spring has sprung, it brings warmer weather and blooming flowers. Unfortunately for allergy sufferers, it can also increase the risk of sinus infections.
Allergy sufferers know all too well that their worst allergy months mean an increase in sinus infections.
It’s because allergies cause increased swelling and mucus production in the nasal and sinus passages. Once the opening of the sinus drainage pathways are blocked, mucus isn’t able to drain appropriately, and the accumulated mucus leads to infection.
We can’t stop springtime weather from arriving, so how can we prevent sinusitis?
You can manage symptoms by starting medication prior to the start of known allergy months, and you can also use nasal saline rinses to flush away irritants.
But in order to keep yourself sleeping well at night, you might need to call in the HVAC pros, so start searching for those HVAC service coupons now.
HVAC service experts can make sure your system is operating optimally, and help improve your indoor air quality by installing things like HEPA filters to help reduce allergens in your home.
You’ll certainly sleep better at night, and your sinuses will thank you!
