Can air purifiers help prevent sinus infections?

In brief: Likely

HEPA grade air filters remove pollen, dander and small irritants from the air. If the sinus infections are related to chronic rhinosinusitis (persistent congestion being the predominant symptom), then it could help.
Even more effective would be to identify the cause of the infections (CRS, immunodeficiency?) to guide management. An Allergist can help!
