Sinus problems

In the US, sinus problems have overtaken backache as the number One chronic illness!

Most of the time, this is due to nasal allergies rather than true sinus disease. This is becoming more and more common in children. In the US, it occurs in about half of all children. In the 90’s, it affected about a third of Singaporean kids but the latest study showed allergic rhinitis afflicted 44% of our kids.

Thankfully, 2 out of 3 ‘outgrow’ their allergies in adulthood. 13.1% of our adults suffer from allergic rhinitis.
