For Allergy Week, The Doctors welcome allergist Dr. Neeta Ogden, a Nasacort spokesperson, to discuss allergies and sinus problems.
Dr. Ogden says hay fever and upper respiratory allergies can cause sneezing, congestion, runny and itchy nose and explains there is a connection between allergies and sinus problems.
Dr. Andrew Ordon adds that sinuses are connected to nasal passages and that allergies can cause inflammation. But, sometimes the body reacts with too much inflammation.
To get relief, Dr. Ogden and Dr. Ordon suggest:
- Avoid smoke, especially tobacco smoke
- Keep your nasal passages moist and use a humidifier if needed
"Medications can certainly help relieve allergy symptoms, but many people believe that all allergy medicines work the same, that's not the case. Intranasal steroids, they treat nasal congestion, oral antihistamines... not so great at doing that. I like Nasacort Allergy 24HR. It's a spray that is delivered directly to the source of your allergy symptoms so that it dampens down that chemical response that's causing them," Dr. Ogden says.
As always, consult your doctor before starting any medications and if you have questions about your allergies. For more tips, visit www.allergy.com .
