Maybe: "sinus disease" is likely a catchall phrase. It would normally include chronic sinusitis, allergic sinusitis, sinus polyps and certainly bacterial or viral infection. If you are not symptomatic (pain, fever, greenish discharge) and you have allergies, this is all likely due to the allergies. If you have problems related to your sinuses then you might want to visit an ENT speicalist.
