The Common Cold vs. Sinus Infections

Is it a cold or a sinus infection? That’s a question many people ask themselves after spending days dealing with cold-like symptoms, such as congestion, coughing, and body aches. A sinus infection is similar to the common cold in that it shares many of the same symptoms, but it can differ in a variety of ways:

  • More nasal pressure – With a sinus infection, you may experience severe pressure and pain in your upper jaw and cheekbones.
  • Yellow or green discharge – The color of your mucus is an indicator; yellow or green mucus typically points to a sinus infection.
  • Length of symptoms – A cold typically improves within three to five days while it may take much longer to recover from a sinus infection.

How Are Sinus Infections Treated?

Sinus infection treatment depends on the severity and length of your symptoms. Some patients may only need an over-the-counter decongestant, saline nose spray, and pain reliever like ibuprofen. Others, including those dealing with a bacterial sinus infection, require antibiotics to clear up the symptoms.

If you have been dealing with cold-like symptoms for more than a few days, visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Brookfield for prompt care.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
