Tejas Ear, Nose and Throat understands how important diagnosis and treatment of allergy and sinus ailments are, that’s why we help with the following:
Common sinus problems
Sinusitis can be triggered by many things like bacteria, viruses, pollen in the air and more. Seasonal allergies are closely related to the condition and often cause breathing problems in children and adults. Sinusitis on its own can be a problem, so an untreated case can open up the door for long-term damage. In the worst-case scenario, this damage is irreversible and can cause chronic breathing problems in adults. Other things to look out for that are considered triggers would be mildew, pet dander and mold.
Symptoms of sinus problems
Every person has their own set of symptoms they experience, whether they are an adult or a child. Dr. Tamez can narrow down the source of these symptoms when needed. Avoiding long-term complications is a priority, so getting treatment is important for all ages. Some common symptoms of sinus problems include:

If any of these things are daily occurrences, then seeing a doctor should be the first step to resolving the complications.
Getting treatment for allergies
Getting diagnosed at Tejas Ear, Nose and Throat will uncover a lot of information about a patient's overall ENT health. An examination can offer insight into the seriousness of the allergy and sinus problems present on an individual basis. The most important part of the test is determining whether allergies are triggered by an allergen, which causes reactions when an individual comes into contact with something their body can’t process. Those with a history of asthma will find their breathing is even more compromised by the infection, causing more complications than normal. This can cause seasonal allergies to trigger asthma attacks, making children and adults more vulnerable than normal.
