Sinus Infection Treatment Options
Find Your Treatment Plan and Long-Term Relief From Sinusitis
While acute cases of sinusitis can subside over time on their own, that is not always the case. Have you been suffering without any sign of permanent relief? If so, you might be suffering from chronic or recurrent sinusitis. If so, treatment is necessary to protect your health, wellbeing, and happiness.
Every person’s body is different. Although there are similarities, your condition is unlike any other. At Virginia Sinus Center, you will be given a unique treatment plan designed to help you overcome your chronic or recurrent sinusitis. To find the solution that will put an end to your sinusitis, schedule your appointment with Dr. Scott Saffold and his team or continue reading about sinus infection treatments below.
When Seeking Treatment Should Be Your #1 Priority
Chronic and recurrent sinusitis can prevent you from being able to breathe out of your nose properly and have the energy, sleep, and health you need and deserve. This affects your personal and professional life. To put an end to this frustrating cycle, you need professional treatment from an Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) doctor.
Scheduling an appointment with an ENT is strongly recommended if you have had several sinus infections, have an infection that is still present after 10 days, or after an initial doctor’s appointment if you are not experiencing any relief.
While every sinus infection should be addressed promptly, there are specific symptoms that require immediate medical attention. According to the Mayo Clinic (1), you should see a doctor immediately if you have a serious infection, which may be the case if you’re experiencing the following symptoms:
- A fever
- Swelling, redness around your eyes
- Headache (severe)
- Swelling on your forehead
- Feeling confused
- Experiencing changes in your vision
- Your neck feels stiff

How To Overcome Chronic or Recurrent Sinusitis with Effective Treatment
Your options for treatment will depend on the type of sinusitis you suffer from (acute, recurrent, chronic, allergic) and what form of treatment will best work with your body.
Dr. Scott Saffold of Virginia Sinus Center has spent 30 years helping Virginians overcome chronic and recurrent sinus infections with appropriate and effective treatment. Treatment options may include the following:
Balloon Sinus Dilation
A minimally-invasive, in-office procedure completed in just an hour. For this procedure, your blocked sinus pathways are opened by inserting a balloon-like catheter safely inside, inflating, and then removing when complete.Learn about Balloon Sinus Dilation from Virginia Sinus Center here!
Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
This is an invasive, outpatient procedure that can take weeks to months for full recovery. An ENT will permanently remove parts of bone and tissue to regain full use of your once blocked air passageway.
To help alleviate your symptoms, medicine may be prescribed. However, medication can’t solve chronic or recurrent sinusitis, and you should seek more effective long-term options to prevent sinusitis from disrupting your life.
There are options! Which one will be best for you? Find out by scheduling an appointment.
