What Is a Sinus Infection?

The sinuses are located in your forehead, on either side of your nose, and between your eyes. These hollow cavities are typically empty, but when you have a cold, they can swell up and excess mucus and fluid become trapped inside them. This leads to feeling congested, having a runny nose, and dealing with sinus pressure and headaches. What’s more, the mucus caught in your sinuses allows for germs to grow, resulting in a sinus infection.

How Is a Sinus Infection Diagnosed?

At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we diagnose a sinus infection in a few ways. First, we will learn about the symptoms you’re experiencing and their severity. Second, we will perform a physical exam to get a better idea of your condition. Typically, this is all we need to do to diagnose a sinus infection. In some cases, however, we may need to run a lab test, such as a nasal culture or blood test.

How Is a Sinus Infection Treated?

Sinus infection treatment may involve antibiotics—especially necessary for bacterial sinus infections—but can be resolved using home remedies, such as over-the-counter decongestants, pain relievers, and saline nasal sprays.

If you’ve been dealing with cold symptoms for a week or longer, or if you have a fever above 101 degrees, come to PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Newtown for prompt sinus infection treatment. Expedite your visit by checking in online!

"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."
