How Can You Prevent Sinusitis?

There's no sure-fire way of preventing sinusitis. But there are some things you can do to lower your risk:

  • Use regular steroid sprays to prevent further sinus infections. This is particularly important if you've had recurrent or chronic sinusitis.
  • Avoid allergens and irritants, if you have allergies.
  • Take your asthma medication as recommended. Keeping your asthma symptoms under control can reduce your risks of developing serious sinusitis.
