Yes, but...: Several things contribute to chronic sinus problems.Most issues are not truly infections, but usually more congestion, especially if present after treatment. Avoid smoking and smoke exposure, explore allergies, consider nasal saline irrigation, and avoiding dairy products for 2 weeks (most adults have some version of milk allergy)recurrent issues can be from lacking some immunologic factors.
