suffer from Chronic Sinusitis

Chronic sinusitis is persistent inflammation of the sinuses, which may make you feel like you have a cold that never goes away.

What are the sinuses?

Air-filled cavities in the bones surrounding the nose and eyes, the sinuses work together to warm or cool inhaled air, humidify it and remove dust and allergens.

Chronic sinusitis can be a tough condition to live with.

And while medications such as nasal sprays, antibiotics and antihistamines can provide temporary relief, many times they do not solve the problem and a surgical procedure may be required.
