Chronic sinusiitis: Actually we call this chronic rhinosinusitis with a deviated septum. If you haven't seen an allergist for testing then consider that. Treatment is initially with salt water washes twice daily followed by a nasal corticosteroid.

Deviated septum: a deviated septum can be corrected surgically to bring the septum to the midline. If there are symptoms like nasal obstruction, snoring or recurrent sinusitis, have your nose evaluated by a board certified otolaryngologist.
