Sinus Infection vs. Allergies – How Do You Know?

Sinus Infection vs. Allergies

There seems to be a lot of confusing between “sinus infections” and “allergies”. This leads to the mistreatment or failure of treatment for these issues.

Symptom Breakdown:

The Common Cold

The symptoms of a cold and allergies are very similar, so the main defining factor is the time span which it lasts. The common cold only lasts for 7-10 days, any longer than that and it is probably allergies.

Seasonal Allergies

Allergies are usually identified by long time spans (several weeks) of itchy / watery eyes and sinus congestion. This should not be treated with over-the-counter medicines as these are meant for short-term sinus congestion. These become ineffective in the long run.

Sinusitis or Chronic Sinusitis

Sinusitis is when the nasal passageways become inflamed and mucus builds up in the sinuses.

This leads to headaches, fatigue, a feeling of pain in the face as well as loss of smell and / or taste.

When this happens three or more times a year, it might be a sign of chronic sinusitis and a doctor should be consulted.

It should be noted that sinusitis does not necessarily mean that you will have a stuffy or runny nose, as it might be that the sinuses are blocked further up the sinuses.
