Sinusitis Treatment: Dr. Hogle’s Approach to Medical Therapy

Dr. Hogle follows the established clinical guidelines for treating sinusitis. His first line treatment is medical therapy—which may include a range of medications designed to address your particular illness and symptoms.

Depending on your needs, Dr. Hogle may recommend:

Nasal steroids for treatment of sinusitis

Nasal steroid sprays can decrease the swelling in the mucous membrane lining of the sinuses, which can help temporarily relieve symptoms. Some of our patients are reluctant to take medications containing steroids. Steroids can have side effects when taken over a longer period of time. You can find out more about steroid sprays in the package insert, or discuss possible side effects during your visit with Dr. Hogle.

Antibiotics and sinusitis

If sinus inflammation has led to the development of a bacterial infection, we may prescribe antibiotics to deal with symptoms related to that infection.

Decongestant nasal drops

Decongestant nose drops or nasal sprays aim to soothe the mucous membranes and reduce swelling. This may make it easier to breathe through your nose.
