DO YOU HAVE
ALLERGIES OR A
SINUS INFECTION?

 

 

 

Learn the differences between allergy and sinus infection symptoms.

From the first sniffle, you may be wondering: Is my runny nose and sinus pressure a sinus infection, or do I have allergies? Though it’s easy to confuse allergies with sinusitis because they can both cause similar nasal symptoms, each is a distinctly different condition with its own treatments. You should consult your doctor if you have signs of a sinus infection.

*All symptoms are not indicated for Astepro. Astepro is indicated for itchy nose, sneezing, runny nose, and congestion.
**A sinus infection is not a disease state that can be treated with an over-the-counter medication

The length of time symptoms may be present can vary, too. Seasonal and year-round allergies can last as long as allergens remain present. Acute sinusitis generally lasts fewer than four weeks and chronic sinusitis can last three months or longer.
