You can expect your CAC allergist to conduct a medical history, including an assessment of your symptoms and a relevant physical exam to look for polyps or changes in the anatomy of the nose.  In some cases, a CT scan could be ordered.  You might also have a skin test conducted to determine which triggers are causing nasal swelling. Once the triggers causing your chronic symptoms are identified, treatment will be recommended.  

The most common treatments include:

  • Saline irrigation
  • Nasal steroid sprays
  • Antihistamines/decongestants
  • Antibiotics
