Summer sinus and allergy symptoms in the Coastal Bend are quite common. Allergens encountered during the hot summers are primarily weeds, grass and mold. Bermuda and Timothy grass are at one of their highest levels during the summer heat. Pigweed and sagebrush are common summer weeds. Additionally, with increased rain comes increased mold. Heat and humidity are an excellent combination for mold growth outdoors.
In patients with underlying sinus problems, summer allergies frequently result in exacerbation of sinus symptoms.
Sinus headaches, infections, and nasal congestion are common. At Corpus Christi ENT Sinus & Allergy we specialize in treating summer (and year-round) sinus and allergy conditions.
