Re: Sinus Pain And Secondhand Smoke????

Definitely. I just saw my allergist last week for my yearly. I'm also allergic to dust mites and lots of other stuff. When I get around a lot of smoke, it affects me. My husband smokes in the basement and outside and when he comes in and I get close, I started sneezing. My allergist says its not likely allergies, but that smoke is an irritant. I imagine it is more of an irritant to the nose for people who have regular sinus flare ups caused by allergies. It totally can make get the sinus headache without the allergies.
