I often advise my patients suffering from seasonal allergies to try using a nasal rinse, like the Neti Pot.

In a recent article on how to find relief from allergies causing chronic sinus problems, several options for bettering common seasonal allergy symptoms were explored. Los Angeles ear, nose, and throat doctor Babak Larian, MD, FACS sees many patients each year suffering from the symptoms of seasonal allergies as the article described.

“At my office, I see a lot of patients with a diminished quality of life due to their seasonal allergy symptoms. Many of these patients end up developing chronic sinusitis and just living with the frustrating symptoms, not knowing there are effective treatment options,” said Dr. Larian, Director of the Center for Advanced Head & Neck Surgery in Los Angeles.

Sinus infections are very common in people with seasonal allergies and they are commonly treated with antihistamines and/or antibiotics. Sometimes, however, these types of medicinal treatments only work in the short-term, leaving patients frustrated at the recurrence of their painful sinusitis symptoms. Dr. Larian often recommend his patients to try more natural remedies to restore sinus function.

“I often advise my patients suffering from seasonal allergies to try using a nasal rinse, like the Neti Pot,” said Dr. Larian. “Found in most drugstores, the Neti Pot is an easy and safe way to rinse out the sinuses, clearing them of irritating pollens.”

There are many different types of nasal rinsing agents, most of which are safe and effective for clearing the sinus cavity of pollutants and the resulting mucous buildup. For some, however, chronic sinusitis caused by seasonal allergies may require a surgical treatment. Los Angeles ear, nose, and throat doctor Babak Larian, MD, FACS is an expert in the field of minimally invasive sinus surgeries to relieve painful sinusitis symptoms.

“For patients suffering from chronic sinusitis, often made worse by seasonal allergies, I perform minimally invasive sinus surgery to open up the sinuses and restore normal drainage. This is an outpatient procedure with little to no downtime and a very high success rate. Sometimes this is the only way to provide relief to a patient with the worst sinusitis symptoms,” said Dr. Larian of the Center for Advanced Head & Neck Surgery in Los Angeles.

Dr. Babak Larian is a board-certified otolaryngologist and a Fellow of both the American College of Surgeons and the American Head and Neck Society. He has considerable expertise in minimally invasive surgery, which has made him one of the most sought-after physicians in the industry. Dr. Larian currently holds the position of Chief of Head & Neck Surgery at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles and is Director of the highly acclaimed Center for Advanced Head & Neck Surgery in Beverly Hills.
