Don't Let Your Tinnitus Get Any Worse

Obviously, being exposed to loud noises can make the ringing in your worse, but so can caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol consumption.

Do You Suffer from Chronic Nosebleeds?

There are two types of nosebleeds that can affect a person, and both can be very alarming if you're not prone to having them. An anterior nosebleed occurs in the front part of the nose and usually only comes from one nostril. A posterior nosebleed occurs deep in the nose and can be a very serious matter, especially if blood flows back into the throat. If you suffer from chronic nosebleeds, or epistaxis, it's imperative to see an ENT specialist right away. At Houston ENT & Allergy, we've helped many patients that have suffered from either anterior or posterior nosebleeds.… Read More

We Make It Easy to be a New ENT Patient

When you move to a new city, there are many things you have to learn about your surroundings, such as where the schools are, the closest grocery store, and what recreation is nearby.

Deviated Septum Treatment in Clear Lake

The majority of people have what's known as a deviated septum, where the bone and cartilage that divide the nasal cavity is crooked or off center. For many, the misalignment is so slight that it doesn't cause any breathing difficulty, but for some, it can be a significant issue. One nasal passage will be smaller than the other, and the person can tell the difference in their breathing when taking in and releasing air through the nose. At Houston ENT & Allergy in Clear Lake, we can provide medication and treatment for your deviated septum.… Read More
