No matter what season of the year it is, allergens are all around us. Some, interact with antibodies in our system (in the eyes, nose, skin, lungs, and gastrointestinal tract) producing an allergic reaction. 

In the nose and sinuses, the symptoms of an allergic reaction resemble the 

a common cold. As with a cold, the nose becomes “stuffy” - as the passages swell to flush out or expel allergens. 

That stuffy feeling is common to another sinus condition known as sinusitis.

During sinusitis, also known as a sinus infection, the sinus passages become closed off by an infection in the sinus tissue. Often this infection is a result of a cold, nasal polyps, a deviated septum, or sinus allergies. 

Treatment for sinusitis and allergies vary greatly, as do the other associated symptoms of each condition. Some of the other symptoms can be found below.
