Are you stuffed up and feeling sick? Are you wondering if it is your allergies flaring up or if you have a sinus infection that needs to be treated? The answer is: it could be both.
Allergies cause nasal passages to become inflamed, and sinus infections are a common complication of allergies. It can be difficult to tell the difference between these two conditions, although there are some clues that can help.
Allergies can last for weeks or months.
Sinus infections should clear up in several days with antibiotics if it’s bacterial (or within a week if viral).
Prime Urgent Care offers affordable self-pay rates to diagnose and treat allergies and sinus infections.
