Nose / July 28, 2022

A stuffy nose usually is the start of the common cold. But what if there are no other cold symptoms? Or the nasal congestion doesn’t go away? Nasal congestion is a very common complaint and can have many different causes- allergies, deviated septum, turbinate block, or nasal polyps just to name a few.
When should you see an ENT for your nasal congestion? When it is affecting your quality of life, you are not responding to typical medical management (nasal sprays or allergy treatments), the symptoms last for more than 10 days, or if your symptoms are getting worse.
An ENT may use an endoscope (flexible light) to examine your nose. At the Ear, Nose, and Throat Center, we have an in-office CT scan for immediate imaging. In rare cases, a biopsy or culture may be needed.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms described above, please schedule an appointment with us today so we can determine the underlying cause and create a treatment plan. Schedule your appointment at the Ear, Nose, and Throat Center today. Call 847-685-1000.
Wonderful office staff and doctor. Very professional and accommodating. Really care about the patient.
The doctor and the staff were all nice and professional. I was seen within the first five minutes of showing up. I got quality care and review of my concerns.
Actually takes the time to talk to you and figure out your concerns.
