Specializes in Neurology
Allergies: Pollution may trigger an allergic response. If the nasal passages respond with swelling and nasal discharge it can lead to a sinus headache. It is important to keep the nasal passages clean by using a saline nasal spray to remove allergens and prevent progression to a sinus infection.
