Understanding Skin Allergies

Thousands upon thousands of people suffer from some form of skin allergy, and if you’re one of them, you know how frustrating it can be to come in contact with an allergen. As your allergy clinic in Katy, Houston ENT & Allergy has treated countless patients who were suffering from itchy, dry, or irritated skin.

Does Your Nose Whistle When You Breathe?

  When you have a cold or runny nose, you may notice that your nose “whistles” when you breathe through it. This can be because of mucus or other buildup that’s obstructing your nasal passages, but if you notice the whistling sound when you’re not fighting a cold, it could be due to a hole in the septum. This hole, known as a septal perforation, can be in just the right place and be exactly the right size to cause the whistling sound when air passes through it. The septum (the wall that separates the left and right nasal cavities) should be straight and without holes, but that’s not always the case. Those with a deviated septum (where the septum is displaced to one side) may also experience whistling when they breathe through their nose. At our ENT clinic in Sugar Land, we can properly diagnose and treat your septal perforation or deviated septum, and eliminate the whistling.… Read More

Recognizing Mastoiditis

While medicine and medical treatment have come a long way in the past century, there are still ear, nose, and throat conditions that continue to persist. One of these conditions is mastoiditis, which while rare, can still pop up occasionally. It is usually found in children with ear infections that have been left untreated. The condition is known as mastoiditis due to the mastoid bone – the prominent bone behind the ear – developing an infection from untreated ear conditions. The doctors at our Downtown Houston ENT clinic can diagnose your child's condition and provide the necessary treatment to cure it.… Read More
