Sinusitis Prevention

There is little information about the prevention of acute or chronic sinusitis, but the following measures may help:

  • Avoid exposure to irritants such as cigarette and cigar smoke or strong chemicals.
  • To avoid infections, wash hands frequently during common cold season and try to avoid touching your face.
  • If you have allergies, avoid exposure to allergy-inducing substances, or consider asking your healthcare provider for an allergy evaluation or a referral to an allergy specialist.
