Are Nasal Polyps Making It Hard To Breathe?

July 7th, 2015 | 1 min. read

By Houston ENT & Allergy

Even though it can be very warm in Houston during the summer, you still want to get outside and enjoy the sunny days as much as you can. If allergies or nasal polyps are making it hard to breathe, stepping outside could be the last thing on your mind. Pollen and other allergens only perpetuate your breathing problem, and unless the polyps are treated, you could be suffering for a long time. With allergy treatment from Houston ENT & Allergy in the Memorial Hermann Southeast Plaza, you can overcome breathing problems caused by nasal polyps and enjoy your summer again.

If the polyps are small, they may not be causing too much trouble, but if they become inflamed and grow larger, they can cause pain and persistent runny noses. They line the nasal passages or sinuses and as they grow, they can restrict your breathing and create pressure behind your eyes or in your forehead. Dr. Tarver, Dr. McDonald, and the staff at our Southeast Houston location can provide effective treatment for your polyps that reduces the inflammation and decreases the risk of infections and other sinus issues.

If breathing issues are causing you to stay inside this summer, make an appointment with Houston ENT & Allergy today. Our Southeast Houston clinic is located on Astoria Boulevard, just south of the Sam Houston Parkway and west of the Gulf Freeway. We can help you schedule a visit that works for you, and you can look forward to gentle and effective allergy treatment.
