Sinus Headaches

How can you treat sinus headaches and pressure behind eyes and ears and Is this an allergic reaction to something?

Please respond.

Thanks for asking about sinus pressure and the possibility of allergy.

Allergy sufferers often experience sinus pain and pressure headaches. The sinuses feel as though there is pressure pushing out from behind the eyes and cheek bones.

Most allergy patients who have sinus headaches also have nasal congestion and a wet nose. The treatment includes allergy specific medications such as inhaled steroids and anti-histamines as well as decongestants.

Be certain to ask your doctor about seeing an Allergy Specialist to find out exactly what your sinus headaches are due to.

Good luck.
