Thank you for the question.
Nasal congestion, accompanied by sneezing, dizziness, itchy throat, pain in the cheek area and upper teeth, most often does indicate inflammation of the nasal cavity (also called rhinitis), sinus (also called sinusitis), or a combination of both ( rhinosinusitis). One of these triggers inflammation can be due to allergies, including cold allergies, dust mites, pollen, or other substances. It could also, inflammation in the nasal cavity and / or sinus occur related to viral infections, foreign body entry, bacterial infections, anatomical abnormalities in the nasal cavity (such as due to septal deviation), immune disorders (such as in patients with cystic fibrosis), blood vessel abnormalities and surrounding nerves, the influence of drugs (especially aspirin), to benign or malignant tumors around the nasal cavity (such as polyps or throat cancer). Inflammation in the nasal cavity and / or sinuses can cause irritating symptoms to the throat, teeth, and head due to their anatomical position and interrelated nerve fibers.
