Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Recurrent sinusitis needs to be evaluated for the cause. Usually anatomical causes like deviated nasal septum and other pathologies should be ruled out. Allergies come next. Treatment is mostly supportive and symptomatic.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
