SINUS INFECTIONS

SYMPTOMS FROM SINUS INFECTION

Sinus infections usually begin with the symptoms of a cold (for example, a runny nose, occasional cough and/or mild fever), and then develop into pain and pressure in the sinus cavities. About 7 to 10 days after initial cold-like symptoms other symptoms develop that suggest you may have a sinus infection. Sinus infection symptoms include

  • Bad Breath
  • Puffiness Around The Eyes
  • Stuffy or runny nose
  • Facial pain or pressure
  • Sore throat
  • A yellowish-Greenish Nasal Discharge That May Have an Odor
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Loss of the sense of smell
  • Coughing
  • Fatigue & Weakness
  • Postnasal drop (mucus which drops down the throat from the nose)

If you develop persistent fever or have a history of recurrent or chronic sinusitis or if you have sinus symptoms that don’t improve or get worse, you should contact your doctor.

WHEN SHOULD I CALL MY DOCTOR FOR A SINUS INFECTION?

Seek medical care immediately if you develop:

  • Severe headaches
  • Shortness of breath
  • Swelling in the forehead and/or eyes
  • Stiff neck
  • Confusion
