What is a sinus sensitivity?

ANSWER

You may be sensitive to things in your environment and to certain foods you eat. That can cause a reaction that leads to swelling in the nose.

Your doctor can prescribe medications to control your symptoms. If you have sinus problems and allergies, you should avoid irritants such as tobacco smoke and strong chemical odors.
