What's Behind the Suffering from Nasal Polyps, Breathing Problems and Sinus Infections?
75% of polyp sufferers have problems with their sense of smell and can lose their sense of taste. Often, there's a connection between polyps and chronic inflammation, such as sinusitis, allergies, and even asthma. When polyps are small, they may cause no symptoms. As polyps become larger, they can cause breathing problems, block sinus drainage and set the stage for sinus infection. Left untreated, polyps will keep growing.
